    Well you are in luck because in 2004 I did help Air Trikes in Canada bring their Suzuki conversion into the US with trikes with the Suzuki engine. I sold a few if those and got them popularized here. There was also the plans or kit built Eagle trike ...

    Not that I know anywhere near what you do but... IMHO, if you build your own plans built carriage, buy a NW and fit a Suzuki or some such it COULD be a cheaper and may I add FAR, FAR less safe way to get into the air. Lots of qualifiers. A good deal ...

    Roy Morris, CBET Looking for a one piece rear landing gear. I like George Synrovsky's composite landing gear. I have a Suzuki G13BB engine I will put on this trike I am building. I want it to handle the weight. I have seen spring aluminum but don't know where to look. Any help is appreciated

      Scott Williams You may be able to talk Kamron at Northwing to sell you one of his. They fly them with 912s so it should handle the extra weight of a Suzuki.

    Scott, From my experience, about 50% of the first flight students are worried about the landing. My beautiful student was worried about the safety aspects flying in the first place. Now add a 2 hour flight and a landing on a small dirt road with ...

    :). I was hoping to give you a headache not a grin. Of course according to someone here you can build more trikes than you can fly with new wings and that engine than price of one Jet Star anyway. Reality be damned :)

    Scott the AOPA reports every year that while there are more crashes while landing than taking off, the crashes that occur while taking off are far more likely to be fatal. And just exactly for the reason you have-the pilot gets it airborne but then ...

    So you're saying it's easy eh. I figured it would be much harder than that! Why haven't we done this already? Actually that list made me depressed as I fiddled with my stupid Bing float bowls. Can't we just build to a dynamic load of Q400, apply for ...

    Though you are joking to give people an idea, I don't know if you could afford it Scott. Changing an engine requires these minimal tests 1) 10 G forward test of engine mounting (emergency landing loads) 2) 3 G side load test 3) 1.5 G upwards pull ...

    Scary like how? Runway got real short, real fast scary? My new runway is going to push my skill level a bit. 660ft with trees on one end. Good thing I've got a 19M wing. T/O will be easy but landing will call for some discipline!

    Kevin Szalapski Scott - I had the same thing last year. I drained the tank in the late fall, since I was not going to fly in the winter. Then with the tank empty, I used a vacuum with a clean piece of aluminum tubing taped to the vac hose and a light, so I could push the tube down thru the filler hole to the little depression under the pick up tube. It sucked it all out. The tank is translucent so you can put a bright light up to the side for visual reference.

    Scott Blixt
    Scott Blixt For you Airborne XT flyers, I need some input. I notice some black looking grit in my gas tank down by the drain sump. Only on the XT, its not a true sump as it is not lower than the rest of the tank. The way its threaded into the tank, it actually pushes up into the tank. Which will NOT allow this crud to drain out. Anyone have any ideas on how to get the crud out?

    I need to add on the after burner to my XT 912. Looks like quite the performance boost

    Telling stories using trikes is a great way to spread the word about the fun of flying these machines, well done.

    For that project I worked on in LA I got to fly this beautiful student to a remote location and a tiny short dirt road which looked way longer and wider in the photos Henry Boger showed me.
