    I honestly think we should all stop jumping the gun on what caused Gerry's accident and wait for the report to come out. The fuel system is the obvious "go to" answer, but there are many other thing that contradict that outcome. For one, how come ...

    This particular accident is so important to learn from. While the conclusion is simple: "dont modify your trike without appropiate skill, knowledge and authorization" - it has been an accident in need of explanation. Here we have one of the most ...

    i have not been on trikepilot regularly and missed this tragic news. i saw a reality show about Hawaii real estate several weeks ago and it was about Gerry buying a new home with room to launch his mosquito. So sad. There is no doubt in my mind that ...

    Wow! What a view. Thanks for sharing it. I enjoyed it more the second time because I didn't count the cameras or think about powder coating the valve covers yellow. Must have been smooth air early in the day to get such good video.

    Relaxing. The reglection of the snow covered peaks off the undersurface of the carriage was particularly visually interesting. The reflections movement really drew my attention.

    Gerry from Birds in Paradise, a commercial training operation  in Hawaii had a fatal accident March 11, 2014. Gerry was a huge influence on triking and myself and we mourn his death and will miss him greatly. I flew with Gerry’s operation for ...

    Ole: It was a comment you posted a few weeks back stating something to the effect -- according to some locals Gerry's buggy was already in flames before hitting the ground ... what are the chances of that? --- I neother have the time nor the desire ...

    Chuck low-passes are not in the PTS and that's a shame because there is no better test of skill as I'm sure you know. Plus, what better practise for a go-around can you imagine? A low pass is like a premeditated go-around.

    Chuck: Go arounds are part of the PTS and they should be practiced as much with scenario based training as anything else. If not, its a shame.

    Ole: It was you who reported some eye witnesses you know saw the trike in flames before hitting the ground right on this forum a few weeks back. So .... Well it is unlikely that the same make/model trike have fuel issues in Kauai only and not in ...

    Doug Boyle Trying to restart the engine in the air with an aircraft that is leaking fuel is a bad idea. Instead, you shut off the fuel supply, turn off the mags, communicate your emergency, and land. Starters and alternators emit sparks which ignite fuel vapors, and then you go BOOM!

    Go-arounds are not really seriously considered or practiced by most trike pilots…I think partially because they don’t have to get set-up for a go around EVERY landing approach like most other aircraft…mixture rich, props fwd., carb heat off ...

    John Olson If you are completely indifferent to the Trade-a-Plane and the Sporty's catalogue that arrives to your home with incredible regularity as I am, and if you realize that everything about these publications can be found online too, and if they just go straight into your trash/recycle bins, you can call them and be removed from their mailing list as I have done. You must do this every year however: our federal government sells their "pilot list" to these guys and others I suppose, and it must be as lucrative as it is up to date... By federal law we pilots are required to update their list of us within 90 days if we move.
