Les Holm leads a discussion on the upcoming test session
There is always a time crunch when the days dwindle down to a precious few (as the old song goes) and time nears for loading up and heading for the desert. This Saturday the day began with a team discussion of what remains to be done, when to do it, and how. The logistics are really challenging when it comes to loading the trailers, assigning drivers, and planning how to get everything down to our desert test site and set up for the runs.
Special guest today, Tristian!
Trish brought her grandson to the shop today, a very bright and interested visitor. He enjoyed some cockpit time.
