      The first flight with the new engine was made on Nov. 8, 2003.  The aircraft now has over 60 hours on it with the new engine and performance and reliability have been excellent.   In the spring of 2004 we constructed a new fiberglas cowl and did flight testing and engine cooling testing through the summer.
