Ah yes, the saga continues with regards to getting things ready for the arrival of my new plane. I have been sending paperwork (and money!) to Transport Canada to get things a’moving. I had to pick a registration mark for my plane. This will be painted on the side of the airplane and I will also say it to the tower every time I speak with them. I wanted something that flowed well and was easy to say. I also wanted something a little personal and fun. I decided on GLYZ. Golf Lima Yankee Zulu. Gee, Liz! Works for me! The folks from Transport Canada told me they are extremely back-logged and it will take at least a month to get my new plane registered. Oh well, I still have to get the inspections done by my mechanic and Transport Canada. I would be thrilled to have my other plane sold by then, but that might be pushing it. I’ve been asking everyone at work if they want to buy it. I said it would make a great stocking stuffer! I also asked if they wanted to buy a case of aviation oil. It will cost them $29,700 and they will get a free Cessna 150! Not a bad deal, eh?!
Here’s another pic of the plane. This is when we started it up – sounded great and very easy to start!
I’m very fortunate that the seller of the plane in the States is really working with me to get everything ready for the import into Canada. I think I would be a stressed-out wreck by now if he wasn’t so accommodating.
Other than that, there’s not too much new with me. I have training at work all day tomorrow which is really bad timing considering all of the files I got in over the last few days. Also, I’m off Thursday for my compressed day.
Today’s symptoms: Quite a few bad body aches and pains. My fatigue wasn’t too bad at least!
