Model: 7AC Champion Registration: N85063
Year: 1946 Serial Number: 7AC-3790
Engine(s): Lycoming O-235, 108-HP Owner: Tom Young, Homer, AK
Location: PAHO, Homer Airport
Homer, AK
Photographer: Ken Stoltzfus
Date: 2004, July Present Registration: Same Present Owner (FAA info): Same
Notes: 8/12/04 - Tom Young is my wife's, cousin's, daughter's, husband. There must be a simpler way to say that!

Tom has owned this Champ for nearly 20-years and flown it about 4000 hours doing fish spotting in Alaska, along with hunting and fishing excursions, instructing and fun flying. (Actually, with Tom, I think that all flying is fun flying. He enjoys it and does it well.)

With the O-235 Lycoming in place of the original A-65 Continental, he comfortably flies it out of 500' strips. The 26x12x6" tires help handle the rocks and rough terrain that are common to such activities. He has kept the aircraft light by not installing an electrical system.
