Off line...


Glad you are still with us. I know lots of pilots with arterial grafts that go on to live long, productive and normal lives. No doubt you will be another.  Most fly as light sport pilots, and you wouldn't be the first to license your KR as Experimental, then claim it to be light sport compliant plane and fly it under light sport rules.

Keep on keeping on. Life will return to a new normal for you, undoubtedly with diet and exercise as a major part of your new normal.  I started doing that just over a year ago in order to avoid the heart and other health issues that were undoubtedly looming around the corner for me.  Now every day starts with a 3 mile walk and my diet is very limited.  But I am also now 120# lighter and feel great.

It breaks my heart to be selling my KR, but plan to stay involved with the KR Group, unless they ex-communicate me for going to the dark side and rebuilding a RV. 
Getting re-engaged with our project and life in general is the right thing to do both for your health and your attitude, so you are doing the right things.
Take care of yoruself and hang in there. 
Best regards,
-Jeff Scott

> I think its time that I share this with you. I have been keeping this news to myself because I had not made a decision as to how to move forward but now that I made my decision, I think I will share my situation. On May 7, 2020, I was rushed to surgery to have a Coronary Arterial Bypass Graf also known as CABG X5. I had three arteries at 100% blocked and two at 80%. Its been a month since that operation. I was released three weeks ago from the hospital here in Dallas. 
> A week after being released I thought about my KR2 project and what to do. After reading your post about flying here and there for meets and gatherings I said I want to be a part of that... and I can't do it if I got rid of my project or worst, abandon it. So I decided to move forward with my project and its been at least two weeks now that I have been using it as a source of inspiration to get better and to soldier on. I posted some updates on our Facebook page a few days ago and I will continue to make small advances as my recovery permits. 
> I may not be able to fly into our meet in September since my physical activities are currently limited, but God willing I will be there in person again. I have a great friend that finished building an RV7 and is now helping me with my project. Thank God for great friends. 
> I wanted to reach out to this great group of fellow builders and to thank you for the inspiration and motivation to keep moving forward in spite of the trials and tribulations that life throws at us. I want you to know that my goal is fly this airplane out to these gatherings here and there which is why we built our little time machines. Blue skies always...
