Friday night Ed Shadle, Brandyn Bayes and Keith Zanghi traveled to Paine Field to give a presentation to the Washington State Pilots Association.  Located within a stones throw of the largest building in the world, the Boeing Everett Plant,  the three gave a presentation to a packed crowd of aviators.  With the dinner supplied by the wonderful students at Snow Isle Technical College Culinary School,  and the show provided by the trio of orators, Brandyn did an outstanding job!  Keith and Ed have decided that Brandyn will do the eulogy for the two when the time comes!

Work this week focused on doing a fine tuning of the steering and a functional test of the system.  Using lasers and a fixture built by Lars earlier in the week, the team pronounced victory as we achieved the proper left to right angle of motion.  Next week the team will install the travel axle in preparation for an upcoming engine test.
