    I’m going Elsa and need direction please!

    Thanks Andy that makes me feel better. Have a quick recovery from your shoulder surgery. Tore my rotator cup six years ago. Had the micro surgery. Never looked back. Do the exercises they give you and you will get that arm over your head in eight weeks to the day. My doctor said don’t lift anything more than a glass of brandy. He is a fellow Irishman.

    While taking the LSRM course another student from Florida who works on many FDs made that assertion. He informed us that a Taxiing Plane Rear Ended a CTSW. He also stated that FD would not supply the needed parts to effect the repairs. Those are the only details I have. I understand Support means being able to supply replacement parts, such as a Rudder and Elevator.

    I may have post in the wrong place first. But here goes again, hoping for better luck Hi Andy I have read many of your informative posts on CTFlier. Due to FD no longer supporting the CTSW, I am also at a point where I would like to take my CTSW to ESLA. I understand you done well on your Operating Limitations etc. Perhaps you could send me a copy of yours and any tips you may have for me. I live near ILM in NC so I guess one would have to use a DAR in this area. Last Friday I earned my LSRM-A license at Blue Ridge Community College VA. We met Edsel Ford (no kidding) there, when he addressed our class. He is the FAAs top guru on SLSAs and ELSAs. He is the one I understand who writes the rules. He informed us that if one took an SLSA to ELSA and at a later time when you were selling it you can return it to SLSA by a simple endorsement if everything was returned to original SLSA standards. That was news to me. Thanks in advance Oliver Downey LSRM-A Odowneyeng@gmail.com (516) 817-4299

    LSRM-A. Brcc VA

    Having worked in shops on many different aircraft over the years I decided to go to Blue Ridge Community College. On Friday 29 June I successfully completed the 120 Hour (3 week) LSRM-A course given at Blue Ridge Community College, Weyers Cave Virginia. Fred Dyen is the Professor instructing the course. In my opinion he is one of the best at his game. I learned a lot from him. We had eleven well prepared people, including a husband and wife team take the class. If you are interested in taking this course be prepared to do some cramming like we did in University. We got together after dinner each evening in study groups at Shenandoah Valley Airport terminal. Airport Managment was supportive. In addition to exams there are also projects to turn in. Don’t worry it is all good stuff and we’ll worth the expense and effort. If you are thinking about taking the course I can try and answer any questions. Having passed the course the FAA will give you the LSRM-A license which allows one to sign off an Annual Condition Inspection for hire on an SLSA or ELSA. If you don’t have good experience. I would highly recommend working alongside a real Mechanic to build the necessary experience. Declaring an Aircraft AIRWORTHY is not to be taken lightly. Remember your ticket is only a license to learn. Oliver Downey LSRM-A Wilmington NC 516-817-4299

    CTSW Service Bulletins

    Thank You I just sent them an email

    CTSW Service Bulletins

    I am at Blue Ridge Community College taking the LSRM-A course. It is going good, lots of studying. I would like to find the Service Bulletin List for the CTSW aircraft ONLY. I got the Rotax SBs without problem. The Flight Design web pages were useless. I found a couple, but I am sure there must be many since 2006 perhaps someone can email the list or point me to a site that will actually work. Thanks for the Help Oliver Downey

    Door Lever Guide Plate

    Low volts/high amps

    Loosen up and clean the Shunt, lube with Vaseline and retighten shunt located behind left side of panel. Worked for me 2006 CTSW

    CHT/EGT Sensor

    That solution worked for me recently. While at it, clean the voltage Regulator and secure with two wire ties. It is a matter of time before that beggar acts up too. Roger you are the man with the Midas touch.

    Rotax 912iS versus the 914 Turbo - Which One?

    I prefer a supercharger over a turbocharger anyday . Turbo exhaust failure makes for a great blow torch. I have seen some scary holes burned through fancy tight cowls. In my opinion as an engineer the supercharger is safer and for that reason even with the parasitic power draw. We have been conned into the cheap bolt on turbo extra power. Just my 5cents worth. Keep the greasy side down

    Welcome!

    Thanks for this site. It is a treasure chest of information. Live long and die Happy Oliver
  16. Good catch Roger. Looks like a bloody hedgehog died in the system.

    High current alarms

    I had same problem. Went blue in the face trying many suggestions to no avail. Replaced puny little Capacitor with a proper 100,000 micro Capacitor. Problem solved. They are cheap enough.

    What I learned after my first LSRM course session

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. I live in Wilmington, NC and would like to take an LSRM course that allowes me to do condition inspections. Alass I can not find course being offered. I have worked many years with repair shops under their licenses. I will travel if need be. Again thanks for suggestions. Oliver

    Charging system & Dynon questions

    I found three 1 amp fuses behind EFIS on the electric Shunt. One had a cracked glass. Replaced and Rewired big new Capacitor. I then went flying and bingo no Alarms. So now ATC does not see my Altitude. I guess that will be a visit to the Avionics Shop. Regards keep the blue side up

    Thanks Roger, I am now waiting for parts needed to satisfy Annual Inspection

    Charging system & Dynon questions

    I have also been having the Hi Currant Alarm on 2006 CTSW. I Installed 100,000 mkf. Capacitor, New Battery and checked all connectors to no avail. So here is the low down, the problem also occurred with Engine off and Avionics On. I tapped the screen with finger and Amps returned to correct readings with various connected loads, verified with AmpMeter. This I replicated many times. I removed the D120, cleaned rear connector blocks. This tells me the problem lies in the D120 itself. I started doing the Annual inspection and will post flight results next week. I will be specific with my report in order that it may be helpful to my fellow Pilots Thanks Oliver
  22. I tested my LED landing light both forward and reverse polarity. Worked each way. I still get low voltage alarm as I clear the runway. My solution is to keep the rpm a tad high. The original reason for the LED landing light was to resolve this problem. Before I used to get the alarm on final. Wondering if there is a regulator problem?

    Thank you all for your responses. They were very helpful. By the way, I installed the Freeflight ADS-B out-in system. I am pleased with the setup.

    Desser 10350-4 6 PLY

    I am waiting on a new heavier nose wheel from Matco. Using 4.00-4-8ply from Dresser. 6ply could not be found. Is there any way to use a tow bar on my 2006 CTSW? The fairing screws to axle are about 1/4". Not suitable for tow bar. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks Oliver
