Re: Nose Gear Retraction Alarm

Larry <gentlebaer@...>
 

Hello David:
Thanks for the suggestion, I will definately take a look at the
system you suggested. I might add that the system I suggested not only warns you that the gear is not down but also automatically puts the gear down for you. Again you can set this up at any speed you feel comfortable with, mine is set at 87 MPH. Fortunately I have not needed it but I'm hopeful that it will be there if I do......
Happy Flying and Many Good Landings,
Larry

Canard Parts Supplier threatened by Insurance Co.

C. W. Wright <wright@...>
 

I received a phone call today from a company which coats things with
teflon. They asked me to remove references to their company found at:

http://www.canard.com/cp/cp58/cp58-19.html

The reason they wanted their company name removed was because their
Insurance company had discovered them listed on the above site, and was
quite un-happy that they might provide such a service. I go the
impression the Insurance company was threatening to cancel their
insurance if they continued "holding out" such an Ad. for services.

What I find interesting is that it appears insurance companies are
"researching" their clients these days by seeing if they are listed any
where on the internet, and if so, what activities they are involved in.

At least one canard owner has had his aircraft insurance canceled after
the insurance company took a look at his web site. If you are up for
renewal, it might be a good idea to do a search on yourself and your
N-number and make sure any web pages they reference you or your-plane
would be acceptable to an insurance underwriter. I suspect they do the
"search" when you're up for renewal.

Safe Flights!

Re: HSI VOR Glideslope

C. W. Wright <wright@...>
 

I am thinking of replacing my DG with an HSI so I can have glide slope
information. Obviously it is difficult to find space to install an
additional
indicator, but, does anyone have any recommendations or possibly know of an
alternative to an HSI.

The coolest HSI around can be found on a Garmin-195 gps. For most flying,
it's better than a panel mount because:

1) No gyros to fail,
2) Provides flight track info rather than heading which permits perfect
cross-track management,
3) Doesn't cost a fortune to buy,
4) Doesn't cost a fortune to fix when it breaks.
5) If you run it on ship power normally, it will operate on it's
own internal batteries for hours should you have problems with
ship power.

I have the 295 and the 195. In my opinion, the 295 isn't worth the extra
couple hundred bucks.

Re: Greetings you FAA mavens

Wayne G. Walker <walker@...>
 

Hi Dave, Don and All:

I recently went through a fairly comprehensive examination of this very
issue -- can a friend lease me his Long-EZ, if not on an hourly basis, on a
lease-purchase or conditional sales contract basis?

There isn't much I could find in the FAR's except for the following
definition:
"Commercial operator" means a person who, for compensation or hire, engages
in the carriage by aircraft in air commerce of persons or property, other
than as an air carrier or foreign air carrier or under the authority of Part
375 of this title. Where it is doubtful that an operation is for
"compensation or hire", the test applied is whether the carriage by air is
merely incidental to the person's other business or is, in itself, a major
enterprise for profit.

That, coupled with the general prohibition for using experimentals for
compensation or hire, didn't seem to exclude our contemplated lease
purchase.

So, just to be sure, we contacted Avemco. The agent checked with his
supervisor. They didn't see any problem as long as we sent Avemco a copy of
the lease for their files.

That was good, but I decided to check further. So we called the Van Nuys
office of the FAA. One of the information specialists took my call. He did
a little research and got back to me. "No problem," he said.
Are you sure? I asked.
"Of, course. Such a lease is incidental and not the primary business of the
lessor."
"What if I give him money?" I asked.
"We don't want to hear about it," he replied.
"Will you put all of this in writing?" I asked.
"No."

Hmm...

In the end, we decided to hold off on the lease. My personal opinion is a
lease purchase would be all right, but an occasional lease with some
specified hourly rate, might not. Better still would be a conditional sales
contract with all respsonsibility for insurance held by the purchaser. But
in any event, if there is a claim under the insurance policy, I am confident
there would be a legal challenge instigated by the insurer.

I also decided that before going down either of these paths, I would want to
see written confirmation from an attorney at FAA headquarters, as well as
from the insurer, agreeing to the coverage regardless of how any FAA agent
interpreted the regs.

Regards,
Wayn "Luke" Walker

Dear Friends,

Our Hovercraft is now past the half way point and it's time to install the electrical wiring. We are using the Subaru Lexus engine, and we have the battery way up front, 13ft ahead of the engine. Is this similar to the Long? What is the lightest size battery cable we can use to safely start the engine, and to save weight? I can E-mail an in flight picture to anyone who wants one.

I'm putting the finishing touches on a Cozy III and should have my airworthiness inspection in a few weeks. I want the IFR certification so what do I have to do? Is it just get the pitot static test and transponder check? And should this be done prior to the airworthiness inspection?

Thanks in advance...tim

Superfil

Gabrielson, Jeff <jeff.gabrielson@...>
 

I am in the process of refinishing the nose of my Long ez after a gear
colapse on landing. Fortunatly I was only going about 5 kts when this
happened. I am using Superfil for some final touch up work and my question
is....can Superfil be applied during humid conditions such as light to
moderate rain (outside of my hangar), I have never used it other than dry
conditions. And what about painting directly over Superfil, is that
acceptable as a tempory small area or do I need to use a primer. I am
planning on painting the whole airplane in the next year.

Thanks

<< The only issue is if there is a desire to fly IFR using GPS. >>

In my experience with 2 approach certified GPS's in my defiant, there is no
approval procedure for experimentals. My first one a Allied Signal 89b a FAA
official wanted to put me back into the 25 mile radius test flight circle for
25 hours, because THAT WAS THE ONLY APPROVAL PROCEDURE AVAILABLE FOR
EXPERIMENTALS. This had nothing to do with whether the 25 hours had any
effect on the performance of the unit. This was cleared up by a friend in the
FAA who simple wrote a letter approving the installation. On the second
installation, I simply told the avionics shop that I would take care of the
approval. I made a log entry in the log book, and that was finished. Am I
legal? Duh.... the unit keeps getting me to the ground and I back it up with
the "approved" unit. Sometimes, it is not possible to dot all the "i" and
cross all the "t" . At some point after yo have made some efforts, just make
sure you are safe, and go fly. John Steichen n27ez

Re: IFR Certifiacation For Homebuilt

Tim,

Actually, IFR certification is up to the discretion of the local FSDO. Each
one has a fair degree of lattitude, so you had best check with your local
group. For instance, if you want an IFR approval for a GPS, there is special
paperwork to be completed and submitted to the Seattle FSDo, but I know that
Atlanta doesn't require it.

BTW, the Seattle checks are mostly for the EMI problem I spoke about in the
posts last week about VOR problems.

Tim,

If the plane is equipped to fly IFR, then just do it. You need the transponder and pitot system checked every 2 years anyway (or, at least the xpdr).

The only issue is if there is a desire to fly IFR using GPS. Then, as the manufacturer you can do that too. But as a precaution, I had the FSDO come out and look it over.

Re: Greetings you FAA mavens

David A Froble
 

Ok, I'm not an attorney.

If you notified the insurance company, in writing, certified mail, etc, of
exactly what you were doing, and then they took your money, they have
ipmplicitly accepted the situation.

If you notify the FAA, in writing, certified mail, etc, of exactly what you were
doing, and what date you planned to commence doing so, and specifically asked in
writing for them to notify you if there would be any problem, and they didn't
notify you about any problem, then they have implicitly not disappproved of the
idea. You would have to have given them reasonable time to respond. (Note the
possibility of them responding negatively, after something occurs.)

What is not prohibited, is allowed. Until you go to court. Then each side
argues their case, and a decision is made. Still, if you have to engage an
attorney, you lose, regardless of the outcome.

Were justice to prevail, the above actions would be very strong arguments in any
legal proceedings. The burden of proof of wrongdoing should be squarely on the
shoulders of the other side. Note that Bob Hoover seemed to have the arguments
on his side, and the FAA deemed itself above the law.

First, I'd check all this with an attorney.

Second, what makes you think there's anything that an insurance company or the
FAA would not challenge, should they get the idea to do so, regardless of
anything they previously agreed to?

Wayne and Canardians...

Would you like to the canard-aviator's list to permit email attachments? <<
I'm not sure that everyone knows what they would include...they are probably thinking advertisements or viruses (I noticed a 'No' in the vote).

Allowing attachments (or using HTML) would permit you to include a picture or drawing of what you are talking about...no more need for those ASCII drawings that we are all so familiar with that turn out differently on everyones machine because of different fonts.

You could include pictures of the planes, avionics, etc, whatever you are talking about, not to mention shared files and databases.

I've been involved in several other email groups that do allow attachments...they make a big difference in clarifying a statement or request.

I voted yes...Wayne should turn on that feature. Once you've had it for awhile, you won't be able to live without it.

Re: IFR Certifiacation For Homebuilt

Dale Martin <niceez@...>
 

Tim,
Not necessary to do this now...... Only before your ready to fly it IFR
which will be somewhere at the end of your test period. Just make sure you
type into your "Testing Phase" the need to fly IFR approaches to insure the
Instruments required for IFR flight perform safely and accurately. You will
not require a second crewmember to do this as it should be done in VFR
conditions so you can verify your positions on the O, M, I makers and
glideslope for approach. The checkouts of the Altimeter, Transponder and
pitot static system should be done by you and a qualified avionics shop and
entered in your aircraft logbook....
Go fly your plane and get familiar with it and then once everything performs
to VFR spec's...... Then work on the IFR stuff. 40 hours goes really slow.
