RSA/UML Forum?

Is anyone here able to help with posting a query on an RSA or French UML forum, please? A friend is trying to identify a single seat pusher homebuilt he saw at the RSA Vichy rally in 2016 and the usual fonts of all knowledge (Brian and Nigel) have drawn blanks.
Thanks,
Mike

Colin, if you get no response here, try the Yahoo Jodel Group. Plenty of experience there.

Re: Air Courtage - "LAA insurance"

A Devon Strut member who is over 76 has been refused passenger cover for his Tecnam by Air Courtage's underwriters unless the pax is a qualified pilot. Air Courtage acknowledged that this was baseless but could do no more negotiations on his behalf so he's gone elsewhere.

Emeraude Fiche

Can anyone point me to an online version of the Piel CP301B fiche (no 28), please? It used to be on an earlier version of the LAA datasheets but is no longer there. If an electronic version is not forthcoming, does anyone have a hardcopy that could be scanned?

thanks, Mike

Re: Jacking up a wood+fabric aircraft

Tim
For my Jodel D117, I used a couple of bottle jacks and some spare timber to to create the stands show at https://photos.app.goo.gl/89xY2xIwW65UwnmO2 , the idea being first attributed to John Brady. You might be able to adapt the design to your Minicab.

Re: AVGAS WARTER AVIATION

Of course we know it's widespread common practice, Mike, but we need to formalise it in a study to make it legal.

Re: Magneto Overhaul

Thanks both. I thought there might have been a few more suggestions but perhaps the majority of mag overhaul experiences can't be recommended!?
