  1. The fact they were still able to land the plane after they thought the chute was deployed is pretty impressive.
  2. From the wiki report: "It has been reported that several broken power cables were found in the vicinity and it is believed that the aircraft struck these before crashing and being engulfed in flames. " Now that information certainly could be wrong. It does look like from this snapshot of the video that he made a pronounced turn at this point. Did he catch his landing gear on the wires? Certainly not judging, hope it doesn't read that way.
  3. There’s an article on Kathryns Report as well. Might be duplicate information. CT accident 11/4/2018
  4. Excellent story Andrew! Congratulations on fulfilling a lifelong dream! As to radio work , what helped me was buying a handheld and going to a fairly busy airport and tune in ground, approach, tower, etc. it starts to make more and more sense. There are even some good YouTube videos on radio work.
  5. Incredible. Love the pictures!
  6. Reads like a bunch of cold water being dumped on the earlier reports!
  7. It's unclear if it's 150mph or 150 knots. Pelton is quoted as saying 150mph, but perhaps he meant 150 knots. On Jan. 19, 2019, Pelton said, the FAA will publish a notice of proposed rulemaking that seeks to raise the weight limit for light sport aircraft from the current 1,320 pounds to 3,600 pounds. “That will allow you to fly in a 172, have four seats in the airplane, and fly 150 mph,” said Pelton, who also anticipates a rule change that would allow professional builders to construct experimental amateur-built aircraft.
  8. Good reason to upgrade to a new(er) plane. ?
  9. We were on the grounds the first Sunday and the arrival situation was a giant mess. Glad you were able to avoid that situation.
  10. Of course, fuel injected. Oops! Thanks for the response.
  11. So on a CTLSi, if you have an alternator failure, how much time before the fuel pump stops working?
  12. Is the fuel pump electrical in the CT or is it engine driven?
  13. Are you able to find a shade hangar? That might be a good compromise.
  14. Another vote for windy. I like the longer range ceiling forecast for a x country trip. I also like airnet, and wish it would project out further.
