  • Speedy's flies one of our beautiful IOX-370 with about 195hp. This is a great running and very reliable version that makes great low end torque running with the team over the top!

    I grew up in Anderson South Carolina and have always loved planes and flying. I grew up flying Scheizer 2-33 sailplanes in high school, and built by my first aircraft in high school. It was a “Nomad” motor glider in the ultra light category. I flew that about 200 hours.

    Now I fly professionally and am a founding member of Team AeroDynamix. I still find time to build aircraft. I re-built a Sonerai IILT for Shaw Industries. I live in my hometown of Anderson with my wife and four children.
