    Modernization of Special Airworthiness Certificates (MOSAIC) rules. Have you folks heard of this yet? I just read in my Sept. EAA magazine. When it gets into law in the FAR's, the owner of a small (by FAA definition) legacy aircraft that was certificated under Part 23 can convert its...

    Hey Folks, Different materials have different CTE's (Coefficient of Thermal Expansion). I use the principle every day in my job when designing Invar, Steel, Aluminum, or Composite build molds and tooling for advanced composite aircraft parts. I admit however, that when it comes to my main...

    Static Mast

    I was reading on the MD Helicopters website about some of the design details of the 500 & 600 series machines. The idea of a hollow static mast that does not spin with the spinning rotor attached to IT at the top is genius. Then the drive mast (which can be very small diameter) spins inside...

    First 25 Hour Inspection on my Mini-500

    So that I can be finished by early spring...I`m tearing the Mini-500 apart to do a DEEP-DIVE 25 hour inspection. Since I have had more chip lights than expected on the MRGB, I am going to lift the entire rotor/gearbox, still assembled, off the frame and lay it over on its side. Then I will...

    Just Flying The Mini-500

    I flew the Mini-500 to the Rome, Georgia airshow today. This is the longest ride I have taken in it. The 582 performed flawlessly on both the 20 minute "TO" flight, and the 16 minute "FROM" trip. I tested speed all the way up to 90 MPH. 70 is super comfortable. 80 feels a little out of it`s...

    Tired Of My Mini-500

    Well Folks, My tenacity is used up. I went for a 10 mile flight yesterday after getting my more robust cyclic pivot installed. It may be because I am almost 20 years older, much wiser, and 70 pounds heavier, but I just can`t muster up as much confidence in this machine as I had in the one I...

    Best Idea Fastest Track To Beinq a Pilot

    80% of the knowledqe and skill required to become a licensed pilot is not aircraft-type-specific. Getting a rating in any rotorcraft is a hassle at best, due to the scarce nature of rental aircraft and instructors. It is also much more costly. This is the best idea since sliced bread. Pilot...
