Welcome to my Lightning XS Web site. I'm documenting this Lightning build for a couple of reasons.

First, this is a dream come true and I want to share it with friends and family that can't pop over to have a look. Second, there have been several upgrades to the kit which are not captured in the current builders manual. I've found a few other builder's sites that have been a big help to me when trying to figure out just what to do. I'm hoping that this site will help others. To that end, some of the descriptions will be pretty detailed to describe the processes I haven't seen elsewhere.

I spent several weeks learning about and wiring my avionics. A huge public shout out to Terrie Cotham (TN avionics expert). She has taught and coached me through this steep learning curve and refused to accept compensation. Terrie is the epitome of the homebuilding spirit. Thanks, Terrie.

Let the adventure continue!
