    SSDR Clutton Fred

    My old escapade had an under-cambered wing which was covered in oratex; no additional underside fabric restraint other than the oratex glue was required.

    Just a though!

    New P@M HypeR

    Understood Paul; being Barton based, I see enough epaulette/aviator/flightcase type instructors. To be fair, they're universally nice blokes; but I didn't train there. Of course I trained on the...

    New P@M HypeR

    I can understand that Laurie; indeed I found the existing microlight rules too restrictive, and fly a group A "hotship" (which incidentally cost me about as much as you'd pay for a 1000hr Skyranger)....

    New P@M HypeR

    This thread sounds like a number of contributors believe that high performance/cost microlights should not exist. Why not? It may not be the type of flying you want to do, and it may not be within...

    Solved the check flight problem

    Sorry Donald, I interpreted the above as a negative view. I don't know whether or not it's compulsory, but my excellent and trusted inspector does an annual compression test as a matter of course,...

    Solved the check flight problem

    Serious question:

    If your engine has inadequate compression, why on earth would you not want to know about it? Because you don't want the inevitably hefty repair bill?

  7. 912 Engines stolen - 20/03/2016 - thread moved

    And now cannot be viewed by non-bmaa members, although that's possibly the idea!

    (no intention of rejoining btw (LAA member and not a microlight flyer), but I am interested in Rotax thefts)

    Waterproof (indoor) aircraft covers

    Probably cheaper and easier to cover the roof in kingspan, as well as being better for the aircraft?

    What would you do?

    To play devils advocate for a moment; when on final; forwards and downwards visibility is very much reduced due to the necessarily nose-high attitude required on many aircraft, especially faster...

    I flew down from Derbyshire on the Friday, via Damyns Hall (with a cracking 20kt tailwind) to pick up the mrs who'd been working in London all week. She was simply delighted to leave her plush...

    making specs comfortable under a headset

    It's true that you don't get much for your money, but the performance is excellent.

    My Europa is possibly somewhat quieter than an X'air; it's certainly a bit quieter than my former Skyranger or...

    What're you flying Peter?

    headset noise

    What radio are you using? If panel-mount, can you not just wire the GA plugs to that directly and use the built-in intercom? Always worked well for me on Funkwerk and Trig.

    July General Aviation Report

    It's behaviour like this that makes the rest of GA despise microlight pilots; although you have to question the training/lack thereof of anyone who deems this acceptable.

    A petrol pump at last?

    I use a pair of Facet fuel pumps in parallel; not the quickest thing in the world, but empties a 20 litre can sat on the floor into my wing tanks in under 3 minutes.
