2007 Fly in. In this story details are given as to the success of the Double
Eagle and other LSA category aircraft at the show. Leonard Milholland, John
Bolding and Graeme Gibson spoke to thousand of people who visited the LSA area

In the story on Page 54 The magnificent Legal Eagle built by
Joe Engelman of Independence Missouri. This wonderful project is a grand example
of what you can do if you have a complete machine shop at your disposal. Joe
has been experimenting with many different windscreen designs and has found
one that leaves him able to fly the plane without goggles!.
Joe has flown his Legal Eagle over 200 times since the project
was complete. He very cleverly named his craft "Pursnul Bidness" so
when he gets away from the shop in the afternoon he can accurately say he is
taking care of "Pursnul Bidness"
What High Prices? Legal Eagle Less Than $10,000!

Milholland has created the Part 103 Legal Eagle shown in flight and the two-seat
Double Eagle. See the airplane on display in the 2007 Airventure Oshkosh LSA
Mall. For more info: Call 281-375-5453 or email Leonard.With good reason --
that is, prices soaring past $100,000 for the most deluxe LSA -- lots of recreational
pilots are griping that the SP/LSA rule has priced them out of the market. To
many, it seems all the carbon fiber, glass cockpit LSA airplanes are going to
pilots selling out of their Bonanzas and Cessna 182s. *** Others lament, "You
can't buy a three axis Part 103 airplane that honestly stays within 103's tight
limits." And most would probably agree that a Part 103 airplane with a
four stroke engine is an impossibility. Well, that's just plain wrong. *** If
a simple, single-seat airplane will satisfy your flying interests, you can build
Texas designer Leonard Milholland's Legal Eagle using his Better Half VW engine
for less than $10,000 according to several who report compilations. Yes, you
have to scrounge parts and do the work yourself. But a growing support group
of other builders seems ready to help. Check the FAQs for the Legal Eagle.
