    Viral Aerosol Spread Simulation

    I don’t know how I could be clearer. Please find a political forum to post you political fantasies on. Even if I agreed with your condescending political and social pontifications this would not be the place to post it Juergen. If you still don’t get I give up on you.

    Viral Aerosol Spread Simulation

    The government cannot give anything that they don’t take away first. I prefer to have the government involved in my life as little as possible. I have a nice middle class lifestyle in the USA and have not worked for 15 years. I prefer to make decisions for myself. This is not a political...

    Ultralight Gyroplane Limitations

    You are still not quite there John. I have and will train people with non compliant part 103 gyroplanes. I can't legally fly a non-compliant part 103 gyroplane to find out how she flies so I can only guess how to transition the client into it. They can't fly it at the Santa Maria Public...

    Ultralight Gyroplane Limitations

    Good morning John, I feel you are reading things into my post that aren’t there. I am not opposed to ultralights that meet the limitations of part 103. The way I interpret the FARs I cannot fly a gyroplane that is not airworthy as a commercial pilot or a flight instructor. A gyroplane that...

    A new take on ultra-light gyroplane

    Please don't self train, it makes everyone involved with gyroplanes look bad when you ball it up. I road raced motorcycles professionally for 23 years and did not try to self-train in a gyroplane because I had learned something about risk mitigation. I try to learn from others mistakes because...

    Testing a fuel for presence of vodka.

    It is not the 914 engine; in my opinion it is the circumstances of the fuel formulation and the installation.

    Testing a fuel for presence of vodka.

    The Cavalon has its fuel pump below the fuel tank. In my opinion on a fuel injected Lycoming the problem of vapor lock comes from the fuel lines from the fuel divider to the injectors after the fuel pump and throttle body.

    Viral Aerosol Spread Simulation

    It is seldom dead calm at KSMX. In San Luis Obispo County where I live with a population of 283,111 there has been one death from COVID 19. I have been tested and my wife was more recently tested and we are both negative. We could not find a test for the antibodies. Most of my clients come...

    It is an N95 mask. Thank you for your help.

    Viral Aerosol Spread Simulation

    I have been wearing a disposable mask when doing ground instruction in the hangar and I find that I get light headed after a couple of hours. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I stay more than six feet away. I have a client that is hard of hearing and reads lips. The mask muffles me...

    Ultralight Gyroplane Limitations

    The NTSB often does not report ultralight accidents as it is considered a vehicle rather than an aircraft. I personally know of several unregistered gyroplanes that have tipped over in the last 18 months. The impression it leaves on everyone at the airport is that gyroplanes are dangerous...

    Testing a fuel for presence of vodka.

    My fuel injected Lycoming IO-320 sometimes has a hot start problem even on 100 LL that gets worse on unleaded automotive fuel. It is common enough that there is a hot start procedure for fuel injected Lycoming engines. Full throttle with lean cut off, when she tries to start you quickly...
