Good morning everyone. My name is Greg and I have been lurking around here for years. I have a few hours towards my private license when I got out of high school, but haven't flown in years. My brother and I have decided to start flying, but we are starting a little different from a lot of people. We started by buying a project 72 Piper Cherokee (we do have several friends who are A&Ps and helping with the stuff that needs a signoff). We are both lifelong mechanics, from race cars up to 6000 psi hydrogen compressors. We bought the plane about 5 hours from home, so we started by showing up with a trailer, taking the wings off, and bringing it home.
