New in town

9 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi there,

I'm relatively new in town, was finally able to get my private pilot certificate in February, got my tailwheel endorsement last Friday and I fell in love with the Avid Magnum. Is there anybody in the vicinity of Virginia Beach, VA with an Avid Magnum or Avid Flyer? Kitfox maybe? 

New in town means, I came over from Germany 1.5 years ago. I had a FK9 Mk2 ultralight airplane there and finally had the resources to become airborne again here in the US. So I am not completely new to tube and fabric taildragger.

Pictures will follow, of course...

Welcome to the forum.  We have probably over 1200 members but the only one I know of close to you would be in Bath, North Carolina, but he is probably on the disabled list right now.  We have a map of where members are located all over the world but very few have put their locations on it.  Hoping that you can find someone to talk to near you.  EDMO

All,

thanks for your warm welcome! Just returned from a business trip, so I had to answer a little late. @ C5Engineer - are you from Germany as well? Seems you have experience to flying over there? As of today, we are going back to Germany. But that's a few years out, so enough time to enjoy flying in the US.

I'm located in Virginia Beach. I will see in what way I can update my profile, so that you have my location.

Have a nice weekend!

Vee Gates Spornradler - You "Verstayen" my GI Deutsch?  Ha!  I flew in Germany about 50 years ago, but guess things have changed a lot since then.  I was stationed about halfway between Stuttgart and Neurenburg (sp?) Furth, but flew to lots of places over Western Germany and France.  I think you will find the Eastern part of our Country just as beautiful as I saw yours.  When you get back over there, we have a "Fred" who flies an Avid in France.  Where is your home there?  Welcome again,  EDMO

I need to read that out loud to myself - but then: Ich verstehe das gut! I was born and raised in Hamburg, but had been living in Stuttgart area for the last almost 20 years. 

I have seen some videos of Fred - assuming you mean Fred Stork. He does super nice aerial videos and pictures and I find it very entertaining. It's a pity I don't understand French. I will have to contact him one day.

 

Read you again, soon,

Thomas

Thomas,  I cant say this for a fact, but I think that Fred may speak languages other than French, and somehow both of you write English, or I might say, "American", because we use different words than our English cousins.

  Send him a PM (personal message) to find out.

I have flown in and out from the Army Airfield there in Stuttgart.  I was also in the hospital there.

Cheers,  EDMO
