    "Jan Ferreira" commented on Paul Hamilton's Blog "2016 Aviation Trike Make Models Year in Review".
    Hi Abid, You are right about all the unnecessary bells and whistles in trikes for most weekend flyers like me. The point I am trying to make is we should promote trike flying by creating groups/clubs of flyers who fly "cheap", smaller, ...

    Abid: You summed the status of Trike flying up correctly and maybe we should try and figure out why and how we came to this point. Obviously it is not one single reason but many factors. I have only been in Ultralight flying in the USA since the ...

    "Jan Ferreira" commented on Rizwan Bukhari's Blog "Profi TL vs Northwing Mustang for HKS 700e trike".
    Hi Rizzy, what is your cruise speed with the wing you have now? How much faster do you think you can go with another wing? Only a smaller wing will probably give you more speed. Another large wing may give you more speed with the correct tuning but ...

    Back in '80 I was a junior in high school and on my 5th flight of my first trike from my modified Comet hang glider and my 22 hp Loyd 2 stoke engine with a aluminum prop from a Bennet trike I flew about 3 hours in thermals. I have a picture of a ...

    Early on, I'm flying my Northwing Apache Sport with a Rotax 583. In cold weather, it needed cardboard baffles to keep the water temperature in range. So I take it up one day in the Spring (only a little warmer) and right after takeoff my EIS ...

    That windbreaker Jan is probably not breaking any wind no more...can you imagine what the Wuffo thought when he happened upon it in the middle of a field somewhere. Somebody had a rough encounter somewhere!

    wow, Thanks Jan for you're awesome comment on the Manta wing! I'm considering buying the white Jet Star that Larry has and he said he has a blue/yellow/white Manta Ray wing I could buy. But there is also a 15M m-pulse II northwing I might be instead to go with the Jet Star.... Have you flown the Jet Star that I'm talking about? I think it has about 180 hrs on it or something...

    Hi Jan, thanks for your kind words over last few months, which like some of the other blog reply speared me on to get this nut cracked.

    Also mate, i am glad you enjoyed my blogs they helped me reflect on what i had done that session, and i suppose gave some of the readers flashbacks from their own training and more so, a laugh to others at my exspence, which is ok..

    Take care
