    Handiflight around the world with 2 CTLS

    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.

    Runway 05 approach. Very sad.

    There’s an article on Kathryns Report as well. Might be duplicate information. CT accident 11/4/2018

    New CT In The Skies Over CT (as in Connecticut)

    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.

    LSA Proposed Rulemaking - Jan. 2019

    Reads like a bunch of cold water being dumped on the earlier reports!

    LSA Proposed Rulemaking - Jan. 2019

    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.

    Rotax Upgrade to iS?

    Good reason to upgrade to a new(er) plane. ?

    We were on the grounds the first Sunday and the arrival situation was a giant mess. Glad you were able to avoid that situation.

    Shedding Electrical Load in a CTLSi

    Of course, fuel injected. Oops! Thanks for the response.

    Shedding Electrical Load in a CTLSi

    So on a CTLSi, if you have an alternator failure, how much time before the fuel pump stops working?

    Shedding Electrical Load in a CTLSi

    Is the fuel pump electrical in the CT or is it engine driven?

    Financial Ownership Maintenance Schedule

    Are you able to find a shade hangar? That might be a good compromise.

    Favorite weather app for planning?

    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.

    C4 project is alive!

    I think the 915 could be a great option for that aircraft.
