    "He who takes no risk isn't trying hard enough." -- Sorry, I don't remember who the author is. IMHO if you want big rewards your going to have to take big risks. As y'all are saying, do your homework and mitigate the risk, accept the consequences ...

    "Arthur Thompson" commented on Joe Hockman's Blog "The JCV-360 rocks!".
    I can add my $.02 to Joe's comments. My JCV-360 is also still running and I think it is older by a few months than Joe's. Verner will still support the engine with replacement parts but I suspect the Verner produced parts ( crankcase and reduction) ...

    Arthur Thompson commented on Henry Trikelife's Video.
    I have flown out of Sand Point and out of Bird 2 nearby many times. One of the most spectacular views you can see is the lake just after you pop up off the runway at Bird's. Alas, Henry's videos are vastly superior to my meager efforts and Bird2 is ...

    Incredible airplane and equally incredible wife. Take care my friend, there is quid pro quo. I got the airplane and the wife now has her's as well. Expensive but alll good in the end, there is no fighting over front seat time in our marriage:-)

    I remember a WW2 runway near Atherton that is made from molasses and sawdust. Is it still there and can you land on it? BTW, spectacular area to fly. I envy you.

    How far north? We saw our first trike a grass strip north of Brisbane.

    And even with proper training "edge of the envelope" maneuvers can be dangerous. I agree, spread the word.

    Congratulations and welcome to the tail wheel club. Got my rating in an Aeronca Champ, bloody ground loop waiting to happen:-) Just converted my Belite (descendant of the Kitfox light) to tail wheel and it is very forgiving despite my not having ...

    "Arthur Thompson" commented on Paul Hamilton's Blog "Trike that could be ultralight, S-LSA or E-LSA?".
    When SP was in its comment period I tried to get Verner to work with me on getting their 1300cc boxer certified for SLSA. They were very much NOT interested even though my company would have been the certifying entity. That said, JCV-360 does not ...

    HI Art, Thanks for responding to my e-mail. I'm thinking about buying a maverick trick with the pacer wing. Haven't found anybody that went from a two place to a maverick. I had a two place trike but never gave rides. Seems that everybody is going the other way from single to two place. Or wanting to fly really fast. I like trikes because of the ability to fly low and slow. I have a flight design and it flies like a 172 it just isn't the same. In the airplane I never fly lower than 2000 feet and always 100 to 120 mph.
