In the summer of 2005, my dad bought a wrecked airplane that we put a lot of time into rebuilding. My dad got his air worthiness in September of 2008. The plane was flying the next day. Xcalibur, the name of our airplane, is an experimental; originally it was a Pa-22. We stretched it four feet in the back and two feet in the nose. It has a 38-foot wingspan, seats four people and has a 150hp 0-320 Lycoming that’s bumped up to 235hp. My dreams after high school are that I’m going to get a job up on the North Slope and for CH2MHILL when I turn 18. After that, I want to enroll into the University of Alaska Anchorage, so I can work toward getting my A&P license.
