    I was aerotowing with my BMW powered trike all week at the Quest Air National Series in Florida. It was really fun participating in the action and towing some of the 106 hang gliders flying in the competition. This trike with a NW Mustang 19M wing ...

    Shown here is an alternative to the huge enclosed trailer trike hauler. This picture shows us all packed up with everything needed to aerotow hang gliders. We will be aerotowing at the Quest Air National Series all week long starting tomorrow. I ...

    Gregg Ludwig I get so tired of ADS-B misinformation from the likes of the FAA and EAA. "Only aircraft that fly in uncontrolled airspace, and aircraft without electrical systems, such as balloons and gliders, are exempt from the mandate." Not true. As stated in the final rule published with industry input in May 2010, all aircraft flying in designated controlled airspace – generally the same busy airspace where transponders are currently required – must be equipped with ADS-B Out avionics by Jan. 1, 2020 There are HUGE areas or class E controlled airspace that most of us fly that will not require ADS-B. I have an Echo ADS-B system in my trike because of where I fly, and it is pretty cool, but for most trikers it will not be required.

      Paul Hamilton Roger that Gregg. It is easiest to tell people that ADS-B is required the same as a transponder is required now. This controlled E and tower controled BCD is confusing.

      Bill Chance Didn't I read the FAA pushed the mandated date out another 10 years to 2040.

    Mick Howard earns his CFI-SP WSC today while completing his checkride flying a Delta Jet2. It was a long but rewarding day where the event took place at Houston Southwest Airport.

    Garrett, number 1 pictured is not fuel line, not intended for fuel line and not sold as fuel line. #1 is "rubber hose" sold as replacement tubing for the CarbMate (TS-111) instrument used to synchronize carburetors.

    Last weekend Larry Morgan earned his SP-WSC license!. He fly's a well built SkyTrax with a Yamaha RX-1 engine that provides plenty of power. Instructor Jim Britt got him ready to go for the event.

    The Wizard wing, like the huge 19M NW Mustang, are often used for aerotowing in "perfect weather" which is of course mid day with thermal activity. Large wings like the Wizard do not require calm air as if it was a PPC.

    To answer Ken Bartlett, yes, an airplane (or any “aircraft”) can be used for tower training to meet WSC PP requirements. See 61.109j (5). 5) Three takeoffs and landings (with each landing involving a flight in the traffic pattern) in an aircraft ...

    Gregg, I will be training in Ida, La out of Vivian airport during the week of July 4th on the N# SeaWing. Over the course of the week, with 2 hours flight AM/PM I might have the candidate ready for his checkride.

    The only way I know to do it (for now) is with a screen capture program like corel capture then copy the captured image from the clipboard into some other progam that allows you to print. This is what I ended up doing. Gregg
