David E. Carroll


I hope everyone at Sequoia Aircraft is doing well! It has been quite a while that I have been out of the loop, but thanks to your wonderful website I have been able to keep track of Falco activities around the world!

Please add this picture to my project file on your website. Currently, there exist a picture in the building series that shows my instrument panel, just metal with no holes and the caption reads "Yes, David plans to install instruments". Well, now, "David has instruments" installed, interfaced with each other and working! (and it only took three years!) Actually, the first two of the previous three years were void of project progress and the past full year was devoted to the completion of the Falco's wiring system. By far, the wiring has been the most complicated task to date, but, the instrument package is worth all the effort. Highlights are:
