Pat's Wooden Bi-Plane for Grandson

Pat's grandson, Skyler, is going to be getting a really cool Christmas present this year. Pat is making a pedal-plane for him. We went over last night to his hangar to see the progress. It's pretty neat - it has a "stick" that you used to control the tailwheel and pedals like a tricycle. Very nice Grandpa!

Here's Skyler about a year ago, in his grandpa's real Pitts Special.

Here's Pat in the real plane - we'll see how close he duplicates it!! I'll post again when it's finished.
