Not exactly trike related, but this page shows a collision of an airplane and a skydiver landing. Amazingly no one was seriously hurt. http://www.earthlymission.com/airplane-collides-with-skydiver/

    That's amazingly beautiful Paul. You need to get some skis for your trike.

    Once you are past all the shit and your wings are level and you on the centerline, go ahead and land. If you go around, you might get popped again, and it could be worse. Good job.

    I have noticed over the years that the diverging point (which shows where the power off glide will take .my trike in calm winds) is lined up with the top of cover over the lowers half the nose tube on my trike. This means I can't make it to any ...

    "jeff trike" commented on Paul Hamilton's Blog "Engine Failure After Takeoff".
    Amen to all above. Take off is on of the riskier segments of the flight. A good preflight should catch any problems, but there are a lot of things that can go wrong. Is something going to shake loose, did you remember to lower your helmet visor, ...

    Outstanding video Henry. Forget about "professional" cameras. The GoPro is a professional camera when you use it. What is more important is the way you have your small cameras mounted, and the fantastic scenery you fly over. I am curious about ...

    Calculated risks and considered outcomes have resulted in a magnificent video. It is the enormous size and emptiness that astounds me. Huge, majestic and awe inspiring could only be accompanied by music of the same order. I'm guessing there are so ...

    Got some glove liners and socks from cozy winters. Made a big difference. No jacket or vest, my core temp is fine.

    Jeff, I assume you use some type of heating. What type do you use? Gerbings jackets are going down in quality since the buyout so I am wondering what you use.

    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.
