    Airplane Taxes

    Fortunately, New York is tax free. At least for the airplane.

    Circuit Breaker labeled ADI, what is it?

    Yep, that’s what I still have in mine. Works great.

    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.

    Hi Sandpiper, Yes, my grandpa was Noel Wien. I was pretty sad too! I ended up flying for Era before moving south. Living in NY now. Kent

    Amazingly it was my daughter’s idea to do the trip. Twist my arm! Can’t believe it went off without a hitch. And then there was this bonus:

    Flight Design has a new section of their website called ‘Stories.’ I wrote about our New York to Seattle trip here. https://flightdesign.com/stories The flight home was done solo in a day and a half. 18 hours of flying, 96 gallons of fuel. Both trips were a blast.

    Pattern speeds/power settings

    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?

    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.

    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.

    bought one, delivery in the Fall...

    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

    I think I saw them in stock at Flight Design USA.

    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.

    Loud Periodic Creak While Taxiing

    I had the rattling brakes as well. Arian at FDUSA changed them out (not sure which type) and now they’re very quiet.
