Leggette has recently upgraded his engine to our Titan™ IOX-370 that makes around 195hp. This silky smooth engine is a perfect blend of hp and reliability for everyday flying when he is not flying a few feet off the wing of an Aerodynamix flight lead.
I was first introduced to flying in 1979, while in flight training on a grass strip with no control tower in Hickory, NC. Just after soloing I was transferred to Seattle, Washington where I was able to complete my training at Boeing Field … the 10th busiest airport in the country! I started building my own aircraft, it took 3 years and 8 months, but in October 2002 I completed my RV-8A!
Since then I’ve booked more than 2000 hours of flying time – most of that time in RVs – and am thankful to hold Commercial and Instrument ratings.
During the week, I am an active entrepreneur in the furniture industry and a realtor for Keller Williams Realty. I live in Greensboro, NC with my wife Donna. One of my great joys in flying is taking my grandson Braxton for a ride in “Pappy’s” back seat.”
