New Member 1964 Cherokee 140 (S/N #43) C-GMKQ

Hello Fellow Flyers!

This is my 1964 140 #43 off the line. I'm based in Grande Prairie, Alberta Canada. I bought this plane back in 2016 and it's been a labor of love to bring it back in the air after a decade sitting. Every inch of this plane has been gone through. I have pages of updates/repairs/STC's and the invoices to match! All of the hundreds of hours getting to this point has been a blast. I also own a 1966 Cessna 150F C-FJNE. I have to give thanks to my wife Paula and my two daughters (Jenna and Megan) for encouraging me to get back into the pilots seat after a 30 year hiatus and ongoing support. Really!? Who I'm I to say no when you get an endorsement to go out and buy a plane...haha. Great forum! Awesome information sharing!
