Re: Flush door handles

'Canopy release from outside.'
By all means you could add that to your Requirements list.

At the time I did consider adding it.
With my arrangement it just means running a second cable in parallel with the GIB release cable outside with a pull ring and annotation (including indication how to release the safety catch.).
But I decided not to bother with that.

I just have the standard canopy hinge-pin pull loops on the basis that if things got that bad wrecking the canopy would be no big deal.

Good set of design specs. I would add one more...To be easily understood by an un-initiated observer from the outside needing to open your canopy in an emergency. To me, that was the initial promise of the Hendricks lock.

Ron makes some good points.

A Requirement is needed before designing anything.
For the Vari Eze /Long Eze canopy latch/lock system.
An example that is probably incomplete/can be improved:-

Latch
Secure canopy for flight - unaffected by in-flight vibration.
Operable with arm/hand strength of a teenage girl.
To be 'security locked' from outside without use of a 'door'.
Security lock will not 'over centre' the latch mechanism.
Security key lock to be flush with outside fuselage.
Latch to include a micro switch for the Eze warning system
Must be able to be opened by GIB.
Independent of safety catch.

Safety Catch
Independent from Latch.
Automatically engages when canopy is closed.
Can be reached/released by pilot and GIB
