    Just had Arian fix a static leak on my CTsw. Afterwards, wide open throttle at 1000’ was 124 knots indicated.

    She won’t start?

    I had the same problem. For me, it just turned out to be the battery. Odessey battery was about 6 years old if I remember correctly.

    E-scooter for the last mile

    Ed, will it fit in the baggage of a CTsw?

    Airventure 2018

    Oh wow. You just can’t imagine how easy it was on Saturday. There was radio silence for 5 minutes at a time with no arrivals at noon. Crowds were light and on Sunday, I could see the expo buildings and visit anyone without 6-deep crowds of people. I think i lucked out. A perfect two-day visit during our NY to Seattle adventure.

    Airventure 2018

    Anyone make it to Oshkosh this year? I hadn’t been since 2002 and wow, it’s changed! For the better. The night airshow is spectacular. Flying in was surprisingly easy with plenty of spots available. Leaving Monday morning. New York to Seattle via Oshkosh.

    Handiflight around the world with 2 CTLS

    I’m excited to see the progress. They aren’t trying to go the shortest route, either. Amazing.

    Nice! I have the black and grey version of the Jubilee scheme.

    Thanks for the video, AG. Now I have to check out Goodspeed. Lets meet up for lunch! Now, to the most important question... What color did you go with!? Kent

    Hi AG! Hope to fly with you in the area. I’m in Poughkeepsie and have a CTsw. The only bike that might fit would be a Brompton, but I still don’t think even that will fit. I could be wrong though. Look at Fisher’s Island just south of Groton. What a perfect place to take the CT and have a beach picnic. Congrats! Kent

    Loud Periodic Creak While Taxiing

    When you apply a small amount of brakes, does the rattle immediately stop? That’s what I had. Annoying, but I lived with it until Arian put a stop to the issue.
