We're nearly up to 100 RSVP's please don't assume there will be room for one more, please RSVP so there will be enough food for everybody!
We have to go shopping for pasta and Sangria ingredients in a couple of days so please RSVP soon.

If you have not already RSVP'd -and- received a "Thank You!" confirmation back, please do so soon.

Each year we manage to make just enough spaghetti, garlic bread and sangria for everybody to get their fill plus seconds because people are good about giving us a head count, we make only what we need.

Cozy Girrrls 8th Annual Early Birds Spaghetti Dinner

Its that time again!
If you are coming to Osh and are going to be there early in the week and hoping to connect with other Canardians, this is where and when to do it:
 
Location will be at our campsite on North Doolittle providing we get our usual spot
otherwise we will put out the word via grapevine where we will be located,
as always look for the little red truck (hopefully, it is a work in process).

Tuesday, July 26th, social hour begins around 5PM beverages available BYO Beer

Our trusty band of well trained and highly skilled volunteers look forward to seeing you all there!

PLEASE, if you are coming to the dinner send us an RSVP with a one line response:

Re: FAA still does Airworthiness inspections, I think/hope

Wayne Hicks
 

Just my opinion, I hear horror stories over the years of Feds and DARs who don't know the rules and who apply the rules incorrectly.  Why take your chances?  Spend the bucks and hire the best damned canard-friendly, knowledgeable, hassle-free DAR you can.  You've spent $50,000.  What's a few hundred more to get the pink slip hassle-free?

Re: Air brake problem

Hi Bob

About 16 years ago the springs looked rusty so
I bought new ones and replaced the old ones.
(Now the "new" ones are older than the "old"
ones were <grin>). Apparently I did not get them
tight enough.

Maybe I can get them tight enough. Maybe not.

Thank you VERY much.

use the speedbrake (speedbrake sounds WAY cooler than landing brake) at
all, but if they have an engine failure while turning final like I did in a
borrowed LongEZ they're not going to make the runway. I popped up the
speedbrake up and barely made it. Also while demoing a landing system
to compete with ILS I found that without using the speedbrake I couldn't
stay on the 3 degree glideslope
at idle without slowly increasing airspeed. From the intercept at 10 miles
out I'd come blowing over the numbers at 140 MPH - LOL.

Re: Air brake problem

Hi Tom

Because one of my test pilots wants the air brake.

I may not ever fly it; the congress passed legislation
that leaves me without a license for another 14 months
of so. Maybe not then either.

You know that I am calling myself "Ezcopilot".

Subject: [c-a] Air brake problem
Hi Group
Without your help, the Longeze would never have
flown.
During the 1st 20 hours of flight, the test pilots found
the the air brake could not be used; it needs adjusting.
It flips shut at any speed.
Well, I got nothing done on that. Today I checked my
plans chapter 9. There is exactly NOTHING in chapter 9
except the information that the air brake plans are in
plans section VI.
When I bought this project, I thought that I was getting
everything. I was too trusting. I don't have section VI.
I have exactly nothing on how to adjust. I do know that
I have to dremel away some fiberglass somewhere that I can
hardly reach.
Does anyone have pictures?
Thank you VERY much for any help.

Re: FAA still does Airworthiness inspections, I think/hope

1) Apologies.
2) Seriously... its twice a day for flossing too now.
3) My dealings with the feds have yet to be positive.  Recently after pointing out a mistake in the AF/D for a nearby airport (9A0 listed runway gradient as 0.2%, but it's 2.0%), I thought I'd have to get the correction attached to PBOR2 to make any progress.

1) My name is not "Dude" ;)
2) I should floss twice a day too.
3) Why? But I think I know what you'll say ;)

My dealings with the FSDO have been nothing but positive thus far. Just
two emails from them and two followup calls, one of the calls was from
my initial contact (supervisor?) asking if I'd made contact w/ the
inspector yet.

Airworthiness inspection by DAR/FAA is much like a building inspector.
The General Contractor often has to tell the inspector how to interpret
building codes (you can ask me how I know this if you want). I think
I'll do fine w/ the FAA. I do wish MZ was at my side though, he really
knows the rules :)

FAA inspection costs me a goose egg (plus a lunch and/or cold
beverages). If I fail, I can correct and have a re-check, or call a DAR
and fork out a head of lettuce. Time/schedule is always an issue, even
using a DAR.

Re: Impact on GA Market

Tony Warnock
 

I think it is going to crash the light sport industry, or at least drive the prices way down!!! Those old cheap Cessna's, all the experimentals sitting in garages all over the country are about to get new lives!! It sucks for the light sport market as I have friends who have invested a lot of money into getting their aircraft light sport certified and their manufacturing facilities approved by the FAA and ASTM. Those guys are going to take a huge loss. For me, if I was medically grounded and suddenly was legal to fly again, I can buy a damn nice Cessna or Experimental for half of what some of these light sports are selling for today. I am sad for the light sport guys, but super excited for all the guys that get to legally get airborne once again!!!

Friends,
I'm interested in hearing the opinions of smart people close to this subject. When the Light Sport changes were made to the FARs a whole new market opened up in GA of relatively high priced heavy ultralights. I was amazed at all the fuss over what amounted to two seat near-ultralight type aircraft that qualified as such being sold at prices higher than many full sized aircraft that did not qualify. 6 digits in some cases!! It seems the main reason for this pricing and fuss was demand from those who found this to be their only option to keep flying because of their FAA medical situation. My last 3 BFRs given were people in exactly this situation. Enter PBRII. Now we have a situation where all those reasonably priced used 172s, Cherokees, Yankees, EZs, and Cozys have new-found market value based on newly-enabled demand. Good if you got one. Bad if your shopping. Really good if your medical situation kept you out of this side of aviation. Think we'll see prices climb? Econ 101. Demand increase without a supply increase. Likewise, do you think that same force will drive the price of those expensive Light Sport planes down?
