    Yes the sea plane experts told me that the new inflatable vests are automatic and inflate when wet. Again possibility of pinning you under if you get wet. I have the old style one where you pull the handle to inflate it but I would be happy simply ...

    Philip, here is an email I got from AEROS regarding BMW engine on a trike instead of a ROTAX, I hope this helps answer your question. They say and I quote "We used to make trikes with BMW engine some time ago. Although BMW is powerful and ...

    Damian/Paul; The inflatable is a much better solution than a standard life vest but it's still bulky with lots of places to get hooked while trying to get out. There is a belt only inflatable which straps tightly around your waist which is even ...

    >>Personally the last thing I would want is to be caught underneath pinned to the bottom underneath not able to escape Paul, when I went up in one, I had on one of those life vests that are "empty" and have a CO2 charge in them, so when you are ...

    Hey Paul, looking forward to you flying a Cygnet; maybe you can give me pointers on-line. My next goal is WSC PP which I'll probably end up doing down at Evolution. The manufacturer would like to see my get my CFI but it's not really something ...

    Strange your views when viewing your postings there are numerous times you make reference to cost/prices. But, as you say, the weather is good, I will be in the air and I wouldn't want to exacerbate your demeanor.

    The question "how much does it cost" (or variations of that question) is simply obnoxious. Looks like good weather in the forecast so you all enjoy some flying!

    I assume you had no problem accepting the first part of my comment "very nice" the second part seemed to complicate matters. Simply a matter of good manners I think, one posts, one receives comments, reply to those comments correctly or risk showing ...

    I didn't even know what exactly this thread was about Patrick. I come to this forum once a day and I just saw my name in a comment so I made some jest from it. Carry on.

    Abid, Many of us have been in various situations in life and have lost family and friends. Your losses we can understand and are with you on this. Obviously, Paul’s comment struck a soft spot in regards to “sensitivity training”. Your ...

    I failed sensitivity training. It had something to do with possibly seeing roughly 700 people getting killed around me on a random terror shooting when I was 17 or my father getting shot and bleeding to death after freshman year when I was not even ...

    You got that right Paul. This is the third muffler system and a keeper. Second oil cooler as the first one was too small. This Setrab cooler was $800. Interesting that this alternator is rated at 60amps where the Rotax 912 alternator is 18amps. The ...

    It has been really cool lately because now the balloon and I are in contact and talking. The balloon people love it and my students love it. We give each other wind readings air to air.

    Yes Philip we need to send Gregg to sensitivity training along with Larry, Abid and perhaps myself :-) It is hard to put a cost onto something like this because all the research, trial, error, parts that must be scrapped/reworked and ...

    I am no expert with water flying but one of my students just bought a brand new Signet water trike so I may soon be water triking. Have been talking with the experienced water/sea pilots who fly Lake Tahoe and surrounding lakes and they provided a ...

    Tom Currier Pine pitch removal from a wing - any suggestions? I've tried soap, plain old elbow grease, but no solvents as I don't want to damage the sail. Somewhere on the internet they said try butter....didn't work.
