I started building N5886Q in March of '06 at age 12. Construction was completed by October of '07. It was then disassembled, painted, and transported to KARR. It was certified as an airworthy E-LSA on January 11, 2008 and flew its maiden flight four days later, on January 15th. It was kept in Phase I flight testing for my first U.S. solo which I conducted in it on August 24th of 2009 at age 16.
Construction of N5887Q began in February of '08 when the final characters on the data plate were punched out by Leon Lederman, a Nobel Laureate in Physics. N5887Q's registration status was changed from pending to valid on April 30, 2008.
