Plane Crash At Pierre Regional Airport

Wed Aug 29, 2012 3:22 am

Good evening,
After listening to the news, I learned a pilot crashed his plane mid field at Pierre Regional Airport in Pierre, South Dakota. It's going to be interesting what the FAA has to say. The pilot's name has not been identified nor they do not know who was flying it.

More information to come, and here's all I got along with a video from my local news.

If you read the whole blog, he seems to spend more time in the workshop than in the air.

Do you need at least x hours in the air in the last y days to remain current?.

Also can you just put a different engine type up from than the original certified design.
