    Mike,

    I travel to Little Rock monthly, going into North Little Rock and I use Barrett Aviation as my base. They are a combination local FBO with lots of local flight training and rental aircraft plus a small shop. From what Iíve observed they appear to be a good with a bunch of both high and low wing metal around but I havenít needed them to do anything (yet) so no direct experience.

    Mike,
    Harry Barrett is the owner of the FBO Kirby is referring to and he's a good guy. I had his lead A&P, Mark, do an annual for me on a Cessna 180 in 2010 plus some other work before I left the area. I'm moving back and know that Mark is still there. I don't think he does much fabric work but he's a straight shooter that I trust.

    All right Kirby, let the speculation begin! We are all good at that. I say Mike is going from PA11 to a Beaver. Maybe Turbo Beaver. I remember him speaking highly of the Beaver

    When he gets as old as you will he get your used scooter?

    Aircoupe? Tri-Champ? Tri-Maule?

    Or Swift? Travelair? Tiger Moth?
