    The birds are so trusting of the trike pilot and the passenger in front who "pets" them while they fly. I want a pet goose too.

    One of the two "Lost Lakes", high in the Colorado backcountry. This hidden lake has a small cabin, a boat dock and a lot of fish.

    The trike pilot was like Superman to the kid. Balloon capture might be an interesting fun competition. The pilot releases a Balloon on the ground, seated in his trike, maybe wait a minute then take off and catch it and return to the field.

    I was able to gas at Valle last year but was informed that the airport is sort of in limbo. The airport is actually a private airport that existed to keep a private airplane collection and that the owner died. I guess the family is not sure they ...

    The flight out was probably my toughest flight ever. We had orginally planned to take two days to fly out, but the winds on Friday were forecast to be around 40 mph, with 50 mph and above winds at 10000 ft. So we opted to fly it all in one day, ...

    Rizwan,
    My Aerotrike Cobra originally had a Rotax 503 on it. I flew it without any problems for 275hrs. I wanted something with more power, and a less frequent overhaul schedule. I initially looked into putting an HKS on it, but was dissuaded by several experienced trike pilots who said I would waste a lot of time and money in rigging an engine mount for it.

    Aerotrike offered a 912 kit that made the task much simpler. It included a new engine mount, exhaust system, throttle and choke cables and splitters, plumbing, carbheat kit, and lots of mounting brackets.

    I bought the engine separately. Bought a DVD on how to install a Rotax 912 engine and spent 4 months working on it in my garage. It was a tough job.

    One advantage of putting the 912 on is that I know that trike and engine inside and out, and since I plan to keep flying if for a long time, I can do a better job at maintaining it.

    If you look on my webpage, www.jeffsflightlog.com and go to the year 2006 and pull up the flightlog "2009/09/25 Supertrike" to read more of the details.

    Jeff, you said that you installed a 912 on your trike by yourself. Was it a 582 trike before? My friend Tom flies an Aerotrike cobra that has a 582 in it. I learned to fly on it..Awesome trike. But my question was did you convert a 582 trike to 912? How did you do it? Did you have custom made mounts? If you could educate me a bit, I would be very thankful to you.

    I can't remember the name of the trike, but it came from Russia thru Cananda and it is for sale. We have an EAA chapter flyin there next Saturday and I will write it down. It is advertised on Barnstormers.
