    Default New builder wants to say hello

    Hey guys,
    couple of days ago i finalized my order and deposit for an EX3. Woot!
    I'm based in Thailand and this will be the first CarbonCub in the country, if not in the whole South East Asian region (anyone knows others?).
    Super excited of course. I hope i can start building the first parts in December or January if all goes well and the container gods are on my side.
    Anyway i will bug you with tons of questions really soon

    Thanks Rick!
    I'm based in Bangna, close to the highway leading out of the city to the east. About an hour drive from the first GA airfield (Bang Phra). There's about a handful of fields all the way down to Pattaya. That's where most of the general aviation happens.
    I've arranged to get a workshop build very close to my house as part of a place currently under construction. This should make things easier.
    I'm currently working to build up my flying hours and plan to get tailwheel exposure next. Also have at least one trip planned to the states to TacAero towards the end of the build, maybe another one just for fun much sooner.

    Super! If I get over to Bangkok in the future, Id love to look you up! Especially when you have it done!

    If you come over and get to Phoenix, let me know and we can go do some flying together. The Arizona topography is ALLOT different than Thailand!
