More than a year after he sold his Edge, Neil Schaefer has rejoined the ranks of trike owners by purchasing  Edge XT582 Cruze 32-4582 from Ian Wilkie and Ivor Harper.  This plane was originally owned by Derek Tremain and Chris Pfeiffer and has been based at Caboolture since new. It is no stranger to decent sized cross country flights as it was flown back to Caboolture from the factory and has also made the trip to Natfly at Narromine where it was awarded the "Best Trike" trophy.  Hopefully Neil is planning to continue this worthy tradition with a few trips of his own.
