Re: Repeal of stolen airspace LAA AGM motion by Zoom 18th Oct.

Today's AGM was neatly carried out and that ATZ motion was heavily supported. The overall downer ase how very few members indeed (247) from 7.5 thousand of us had sent in their proxy voting sheets, reflected in todays on-line attendance. Brave Tim Hardy & Steve Slater had risen earloy on a Sunday an...

Re: Repeal of stolen airspace LAA AGM motion by Zoom 18th Oct.

BTW. Please use your form to vote on item 6. Because I don't think with a Zoom AGM voting after the discussion on the 18th comes into play. Rather odd actually Steve, having to ask members to vote on the Motion as laid out in the magazine before hearing pro's, con's ??????? Still I sincerely hope en...

Repeal of stolen airspace LAA AGM motion by Zoom 18th Oct.

Anyone for or against the Farnborough, Brize, Oxford, Southend, Norwich grabs of great swathes of thinly used and now for GA almost no-go ATZ s are sure to want to join in the Zoom LAA AGM. It's on Sunday week the 18th October. All inputs and votes on the motion are to get the LAA to parley with oth...

Re: Ignoring PPR

I'm surely repeating stuff on a similar thread running on Flyer. BUT FWIW the Rans S6-116 tail wheeler takes fat tyres legitimately (I have) and makes it good for a soft West Sussex strip in winter. Top speed hardly altered, still caN cruise between 85 and 100 mph at 4,400 - 4950 rpm. Nat. prop sett...

Re: Ciovid -19 and Permit Revalidation Check Flight

If LAA they accept 90%. If plane weight is say 1000 lb it lets you test at 900 lb. l strap ballast onto the pax seat securely and the normal belts take any restraining force just like live meat ballast. The usual is a 25 litre plastic Jerry of water plus me. But l agree fully kitted as P1 l am 198 l...

Re: Ciovid -19 and Permit Revalidation Check Flight

Well Alan, Partly as l mostly am alone, I've been doing the flight test solo with ballast strapped on the pax seat which with baggage, me and full tanks can get my 'plane over 90% MAUW. No fuss and no bodily involvement of another soul. Seems to me a far more preferable and lower risk method. mike h...

Re: 9.7mm hand reamer

I assume you'd thought of 3/8" and after using first for that size, then raising the lands with a file drawn along the lands to get the extra 3 thou. radius. Might be worth turnng up a spot on plug gauge carefully polished on a lathe to check the final bore, or of course if suitable, the actual item...

Re: Wittman W8 Plans

FWIW. My slow high wing Rans also had the cockpit static which generally exaggerates as speed of aircraft increases. l copied a colleague's solution, which is a classic method. A static button on mid fuselage side was installed a few years ago. Jodels have much the same, but one each side and a Tee ...

Murphy Maverick

A friend in France, Richard Arkell, bought a U.K. part built but long ago abandoned Maverick kit to be a home build project. The fuselage has now been completed but the wings are a problem as lack of detailed info. is exacerbated as Murphy in Canada - if they exist now - won't communicate. Can any I...

Re: Flight2Hope film

Saved it for this evening and thank you for letting us know about the film.

Nice to see a Potez (?) tail wheel Jodel, but see how the 'good old' trusty C172 unobtrusively gets everywhere too !

Re: An urgent message to bored, aviation-minded, kids, parents and grandparents!

Well Ch,Ch.,

That would then be a leading requirement as 'plane indicates a wing, whereas i read the invitation to mean summat wot flies, but the ''how'' might bring forth some great new concept.

As in :- "Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings...."
