Shiflett Escapade Build

Postby pbsinohio » Wed Mar 23, 2016 8:30 pm

Hope I'm doing this right. All suggestions gratefully accepted.

I, Philip Shiflett, am building an Escapade with the help of my brother Carl and the advice of Jack Kesler. I will use this site to post pictures for all to comment on, for Jack's review and general questions I will have.

Hi Philip,
Welcome to the forum and the wonderful world of Just Aircraft builders. Where are you in Ohio? There are a couple of Highlander owners there in Ohio and a couple of us just across the pond in Ontario, Canada. Besides building an aircraft from Just, you're made a great first step in joining this forum. There are a few experts on here and a lot of us that like to think we are. Kidding aside, you will find the builders here very helpful and also a ton of information available by using the search feature on the upper right corner of the forum screen. With 17,000 posts here, there is more information (often with pictures) than one can even imagine as they start the build process. Try it out by searching for "recommended build order" and you will find your way to a great list from JustAircraft that gives you an idea of where to start and how to proceed. I believe it's the second or third post from the bottom of the list. (one of the earliest ones)
Good luck with the build!

Welcome Aboard Phillip,

Glad you made it onto here. The search feature is your friend, but don't hesitate to ask as well, through my build, I had questions, and wasn't sure how exactly to word them to make the search function find the info required, When I would ask, others were able to simply link to the thread, or offer advice on wording to find it in search without them having to type up the entire dissertation again. So don't be afraid to ask. Everyone on here has always been very accommodating, and helpful. Everyones interest lies in the successful completion and safe flight of Just Aircraft flying machines...

Welcome aboard Phillip!

You'll be hard pressed to find a better group of people than those hanging out here. And whether building or flying questions, you'll find it all here either in archives, or by just asking. You chose a GREAT airplane and an equally great group of aviators to hang out with!
