Dream Classic at a private airstrip performing taxi runs to stretch and adjust cables before doing some flight hops in preparation for flight testing. Unfortunately the weather turned to rain and high winds the next day, so they are waiting for time and weather to coincide for flight tests.
Chris and Mike have reluctantly decided to sell the Dream Classic for a very reasonable price of £8500 ono (less than it cost to build), as Mike has had a hip operation since this testing and is unlikely to fly again. It does have a unique wing-fold which will make storing the aircraft at home possible, or reduce hangar costs. Anyone interested in the aircraft should send me and email on: firstname.lastname@example.org

The following images were received from Dieter June 2019, and he has made excellent progress with the engine installation. Initially he was going to fit the Verner 3 - cylinder radial, but decided to go for a modified Briggs & Stratton V-Twin with belt reduction drive instead. The engine mount configuration was designed by GSAL, but the detail and build was done by Dieter and his friend.

|Mike explained how he was making a saddle to support the wings for transport, with further fixed supports on the trailer not yet completed. They are just about ready to start flight testing at the end of October.|
