karoliina Posted October 10, 2004 Share Posted October 10, 2004 Hi, Short introduction: I am currently working as senior software engineer / project manager at Nokia. I can't tell much more about it except that my work somewhat involves open source stuff. My partner (who is also flying) has a company which does pretty nice embedded Linux devices based mainly on PowerPC family microprocessors. Those would be quite suitable for EFIS systems, in the case someone would be interested in Linux based avionics system. For more information, have a look: http://www.katix.org I have currently European UPL license (eligible to fly airplanes similar to U.S. Sports Plane category) but I am going to upgrade it to PPL in the future. Currently I am flying TL-96 Star ( http://www.tl-ultralight.cz ), EV-97 Eurostar and Ikarus C42. Despite of the variety of types of aircrafts I am flying, I am currently a very low time pilot as I just recently got the pilot's license. But that is going to change in the near term future, as I am spending as much time up there as possible I am looking forward for someday perhaps owning a canard aircraft, either purchased or self-built. Plans built aircraft could suit me better than a fast build kit as the expenses would be quite much lower for a plans built kit allthough it would consume more time and on the other hand, I would prefer to spend more time on the air than in the carage if possible but really, a plans built could be nicer to my bank account (especially taking in account that I would need to pay VAT + customs + overseas shipping expenses for a fast built kit such as Velocity). If there would be someone else from Finland (or nearby in Scandinavia) and building/interested in canard aircrafts, please send me an e-mail and tell me about your project. I would of course like to get a ride on a such aircraft before proceeding to the decision to build.
