    tail wheel conversion

    Go on Paul, they are basically the same to fly as any other 3-axis beast - it's the ground handling that's the challenge. :burger:

    Starting the vacuum cleaner

    Must have been part warm. Have a cup of tea and try again later :-)
  6. Lots of people watching but not saying much

    That reminds me of an idea for a holiday we planned, but never made, in the late 1990s when we were still flying on restricted licences. The idea was to take a car with the TST on its trailer, and...
  7. High performance training aircraft, yes or no?

    I always thought it was about whether you fly for the fun of being up there or fly for the fun of getting somewhere.
    If you wanna fly fast through headwinds then a microlight's not the beast to do...
  8. Flight Design goes into receivership

    Does this help? http://www.bmaa.org/files/til058_1_replacement_parts.pdf

    I'm not suggesting you'll necessarily like the answer but I think it is an answer.

    Sorry if your question was rhetorical...

    TST/T300 wings

    So, by implication from what you say, Mark, it would be viable for an SSDR machine at least, to fit a T300 wing set to a TST?
    Doing it to a 2-seater would involve a fair bit of mod complication...

    Ed 42 1:500 map

    yeah, this is a topic that turns up every so often. This PPrune post matches my understanding. Easiest seems to be to mark up chart with new obstacles listed on the NATS web site, here, that are...

    Idiot sightings...

    Ted,
    Having just added a post to the Word Association thread, I had a look at this thread.
    I just read your 'Idiot Sighting No.2' again: is there something you are trying to tell us, or was the...

    GPS reliability - whoops!

    Thanks Donald. From further reading, I think some 'legacy' systems may have been affected, but current ones not: I imagine some positional GPS problems may have been a coincidence due to other issues...

    GPS reliability - whoops!

    "In fact, as a result of the problem, some GPS positioning would have been thrown off by nearly 4km."

    Spotted deep in the BBC news website

    It's OK, they've fixed it now. Good job it doesn't...

    TST/T300 wings

    I don't know the answer to that other than that to my knowledge nobody has ever fitted T300 wings to a TST, nor vice versa.

    You could always phone the factory and ask - you might be lucky and get...

    petrol uses x-air

    In theory they may be different speeds (let's not go there), but in practice in a draggy microlight they are the same speed. If you recall the U-shaped drag curve from your theory studies related to...

    petrol uses x-air

    Then there's the consideration, if travelling rather than just 'being up there', of lires per mile when heading into a wind. It's usually best to fly at more than minimum drag speed. Downwind, min...

    SSDR and the BMAA

    I believe there still remains a legal requirement from elsewhere in air law to maintain an airframe and an engine logbook for an SSDR microlight, and it still remains a requirement to register it,...

    Aeroplane Design

    Hi Reece,
    I suspect fibregalss is a lot more difficult to get a predictable strength and weight that metal. More knowledgeable people than me on here would be able to advise on that.
