Here's another favorable general aviation article that those on VAF who never let facts get in the way of a good paradigm will ignore.
David Allen, a retired Boeing computer software engineer, is a patient and determined man.
Twenty-five years ago, this Edwardsville resident decided he wanted to build an airplane from a kit, and he finally got the chance to start the project four years ago.
"I was single when I moved to California in 1962 to work for North American Aviation," Allen said. "A guy I worked with taught me how to fly, and I've been interested ever since, but it took me 20 years to pull the trigger and buy the first kit."
