W h a t O ur M e m b e r s A r e B uil d in g More First Appearances at Oshkosh 2013 Perseverance Award Winners This month we're bringing you the last of the photos of aircraft that received Perseverance Awards for making their first appearance at EAA AirVenture after being completed. This award recognizes the work that every builder invests to complete a homebuilt project. The award was started by Doc and Buddy Brokaw (now deceased), who built and flew the Brokaw Bullet and wanted to acknowledge the perseverance needed to finish a project like building an airplane. Sixty-three aircraft received that award this year; unfortunately, we were not able to locate and photograph all of them, but we congratulate all the builders on their accomplishment. … Mary Jones CH 750/N750MJ Rick George, EAA 139662, of Holman, Wisconsin, completed this Zenith CH 750 in April 2013. It's powered by 32 Vol.2 No.12 / December 2013 a Rotax 912S. Rick built the aircraft over 1.8 years. He has 70 hours in it. Photography by Jim Raeder
