Thanks for the kind words about Desert Aircraft.  The folks there are  
the best in the world to work with and will always provide more care  
and help than any.  My association with the company, some years ago  
when they were just beginning, was a great period in my life and still  
holds many great and fond memories.
I am forwarding your comments to Dave Johnson.  Dave is the founder  
and owner of DA and I am sure he will appreciate what you have to say.
My Best.
