Is there a standard radio channel for x country flying? I've been using the local airport channels as I get close to an airport but wondering if there's a general aviation channel that I should be using to announce my position and path. No transponder

    Phil, Here's a good website: http://www.mountainflying.com/ . I've done some review and found snipets in the web page to be very good reading.

    Nice, Paul. I was expected to see a few jolts as you crossed the peaks but looked like you had smooth air. What happens on a sunny side slope with winds coming in from the sunny side? I would imagine you get some pretty strong updrafts then ...

    I got my ass down to Evolution Trikes shortly after my drop incident for additional training (been there twice in fact). It's been invaluable for land triking and I apply Larry's landing techniques to my water landings as well. I never had to ...

    My drop incident was from a normal thermal/rotor and I came in shallow with power; never again. However, on the good side I have a new mast now

    Good brace, looks like a fun piece of water. Hope those trees don't make too many strainers! Nice to see a fellow paddler here.

    Kayaking won over flying this weekend. Snow melt only last a few weekends and need to get out there while I can (note I didn't flip over...I'm in the midst of a mighty brace and traversed the rapid upright)

    Yup, I completely misinterpreted the comments about using all the runway. Open mouth A, insert foot B.

    I wasn't going to chime in on this but using all available runway is something I never do. In fact I'm usually up in the air by the time I hit the numbers, leaving about 4500' of runway in front of me......to me that seems like plenty of room to ...

No transponder here and a weak, Icom A6 radio so I can't expect to transmit very far.

      Paul Hamilton Tom, For XC best to use the closest airport channel as you have been doing or ATC if you are using flight following AND have a transponder

    What goes hand in hand with trike flying? Kiteboarding of course. No wind, fly; wind, kiteboard. Towing my trike to Fl next month with kiteboard gear all packed. Can't wait.

    Tom Currier I seem to have run into a fair share of asswipes in the UL/Light sport industry including the trike world. I want to give a hardy shout out to the good ones I've run into that are extremely professional, experts in their field, open, and don't spend half their time cutting down their competitors or others way of doing things: Evolution Trikes (Zephyrhills, Fl); Larry Mednick, Sea and Sky(Cygnet, Ft. Walton Beach, Fl): Michael Percy, Cygnet Trainer (Navarre, Fl): Jeff Bell, Pinup Aviation owner and mechanic (Navarre Fl): Colin Serrano, I've heard too much "my way or go away" from others in this industry and the above listed are the complete opposite and a pleasure to deal with on both a personal and professional level. My hat's off and thanks to the team above.
