Can't hardly wait to get to Sandpoint and pump you mountain flyers for info. I'm used to rough air, big sink and lift, but I'll look to you mountain flyers to keep us Flatlanders out of trouble.

    Hey, that's a interesting story. Meeting your wife at Sandpoint she seems like a very nice person. I remember she was in a hurry to head the motorhome back to Wa. You told her to hang around after you took off in case you turned back and needed ...

    This was in the days before GPS. VOR's, NDB's and if you were really high tech, Loran if you were a coastal flyer. And if you weren't watching the needles and got caught out on top and dropped down through a hole you found a water tower to get your ...

    Excellent points. I have to say again it's the Peter Pan/Superman syndrome. Thinking back when you were a kid you tied a towel around your neck, stuck out your arms, ran around the yard or jumped off the roof and pretended you were flying. With a ...

    Bill Chance commented on Michael Reiter's picture.
    Michael, were did you source the fabric from? Did you do the sewing? And do the side panels have zippered storage compartments? Good pattern making for the seats and side panels by the way.

    "Bill Chance" commented on Rizwan Bukhari's Blog "Speed range in Strut wings vs Cable braced wing".
    Riz, sometime back Abid posted a link to an old video that proved there is a big difference between the drag of a small cable and a larger airfoil shape. Back when planes still had 2 wings and you can see them on newer/older biplanes today that they ...

    "Bill Chance" commented on Rizwan Bukhari's Blog "Speed range in Strut wings vs Cable braced wing".
    Struts have less drag over wires is certainly true but aren't you a Aeros dealer? This is a question for your wing manufacturer Aeros as they are one of the few wing builders that still build both topless and king post designs. I would say beside ...

    Bill Chance commented on jeff trike's Video.
    Nice flight and video. Is that rope lights that change color laid in your wing? Looks cool and certainly different.

    Bill Chance commented on Jared Grosvenor's Video.
    Went back and viewed your video on my laptop instead of my phone. Better speakers. You tried a restart fairly quickly after it died and it sounds like the engine was cranking over pretty fast. If it seized it should have cranked over in the air ...

    I agree with Robert. You can see the piston crown and any scoring on the exhaust side of the piston. On the 202 you can pull the carbs and Reed valves

    Bill Chance commented on Doug Boyle's Video.
    On his low pass down the runway and Chelsi sticks her arms out is why I like trikes. The Peter Pam syndrome. It's how I explain trike flying to people, especially GA pilots. Watch how Doug keeps his head swiveling. Good situational awareness. ...
