    Short / soft field

    Rich: Never have a problem taking off we are 320ft amsl and even with little wind 2 adults and fuel the ground roll is usually around 500 to 650 feet, sometimes in winter when ground is wet I use 30 degrees of flap instead of 15. Lawrence

    Short / soft field

    My strip at the moment is only 300 meters of which in one direction on landing 50 meters is unusable due to trees so down to 250 Meters so I always land with 40 degrees of flap but you do need to follow Dicks advice above, Go around and 40 degrees of flap is no problem, I’ve just purchased the rest of the field my strip is in so I’m now able increase the length to 500 meters which will make landings easier.

    carburetor heat on landing checklist

    CTs in the UK aren't fitted with a Carb heat probably more to do with trying to keep the weight down to 450Kg rather than them not being required, In 15years of flying Cts over here I have never experienced Carb Icing, only once have I had a rough running engine on climb out and that we suspect was due to fuel line vapour locks caused by there being no fuel return line back to the fuel tanks.
  4. Snoopyeagle, I'm interested in getting another SL40 for my CTSW as a backup radio.  Not sure how much you want for the radio and then how much shipping would be to ship the U.S.  Let's see what the bottom line will be for me and I might buy this from you.  It is easiest for me to just use normal email over internet.   reh3335@yahoo.com

    Map storage

    The Ex Uk importer of Cts has a template of some kind of door pockets and his airstrip is 1 mile from mine so I will obtain them and try to put some pictures on here of what they are as I want some mine as well

    Garmin SL40 problem

    I pulled out a SL-40 Last week from my CTSW because here in the UK we all have to have 8.33Khz spacing and I installed a Icom 220 and agree with Ctfarmer it does look and feel a lot more robust, I haven't flown it yet but my iPad is plugged in via a USB port next to the radio so I will listen out for the squelch problem. I now do have a working Garmin SL-40 if anyone wants one as it is of no use to anyone in Europe now.

    GARMIN SL40 RADIO

    I have a CTSW here in the UK and due to a new EU ruling we are all having to install new Radios with 8.33kHZ spacing, I have a Garmin SL40 in perfect working order which I am now going to have to remove, so if anyone wants a Garmin SL 40 I will have one shortly available, although I am in the UK I will be in Florida at Marco Island and Kissimmee from the 18th August for 18 days so I could take with me and send from their if required . I will need to keep the tray as this is required for the new Icom A220T to slot into

    Having trouble getting in her!

    I'm 6ft 7" tall and owned a Ct for 15 years in the UK and have no problem flying it, getting in is easiest by putting your backside into the seat first and then lift your legs in
