    That's the plan. Current Cygnet is up for sale on Barnstormers and just about ready to order a new one.....just for the sake of trading up to new. My longer term plan is to build a amphib something or other......looking at a possible Stol with ...

    I've decided to go with a 17m for my new Cygnet. I've always had more than enough lift and I'm thinking with the smaller sail my vne is going to go up (as well as cruise speed) and it'll handle bumps a little better. The obvious downside is a bit ...

    Off the power, 200', push out to slow down, yank in hard and to the gut to drive the nose down then ease out just a bit until 15' off the runway (or water) then start a slow flare. Only closed my eyes once :) Seriously, with so much runway I ...

    To continue on Ken's question, I'd like to fly into Boston harbor and land at on of the islands. It's my understanding I'd need controlled tower endorsement for my WSCS, a transponder (further training endorsement required for this?), and ...

    Tough life.............. though I imagine there are days you just don't want to do this and more where students scare the hell out of you. I often felt sorry for my instructors as they patiently watched me mess up and had to take corrective action

    Tom Currier Wish I took video. It was 58 degrees late yesterday afternoon!!! I felt like flying in my T-shirt (but I didn't). I was able to squeeze in about an hour and a half of touch and goes at KCON before it got too dark. Warm again today but back to the normal NH February temps tomorrow. I'm hoping the surface ice is melting and will refreeze into a smooth surface over the next few days, setting up nice ice runways all over the state.

      Tom Currier Another amazing winter flight last evening. It was still snowing when I arrived at the airport after work. I decided to pre-flight and by the time I was done it had stopped and civil twilight had just begun. It was 29 degrees and a light snow covered the ground. The short flight was awesome. Between the lingering snow clouds fairly close by and the lights of downtown Concord NH the view was beautiful. 'twas a bit bumpy over 800' but overall a great post snowstorm flight. I'm really starting to like winter flying :)

    I've considering doing it for flying out of the country. In particular I'd like to fly up in Nova Scotia and figured I wouldn't get the night rating. I think Wes at Evolution Trikes is a WSC PP instructor.

    Nice. My grandsons were 9 & 12 respectively before I took them up. It's a great feeling to share this with the kids. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkFEwi6AP_A

    Tom Currier 2nd attempt at winter flying yesterday........it went well. This time I wasn't cold at all with warm, doubled up mittens and my snowmobiling hood under my MicroAvionics helmet. My biggest problem was getting it back down on the ground.....damn there's a lot of lift in cold, dense air. If it wasn't for the 3200' runway it would have been a go around as my standard, summertime descent wasn't happening.
