Glad he's OK. Good job the a/c didn't have a BRS fitted because he'd be in for a PPRuNe witch hunt if the chute had been deployed and he'd emerged unscathed

Kis was keep it simple, of course.

The Kis (and Tri-Kis) was developed by Rich Trickell after he designed the wings for the Lancair (later to become the Cessna Columbia)...but he fell out with Lance Neibauer.

Rich was a good wing designer, but perhaps not the best homebuilt kit market man.
