  1. Line guys at my FBO accidentally damaged my nose wheel pant, and now they get to replace it. Where does one get a replacement? Direct from Flight Design? I emailed FD USA and they said they would contact FD, however the response time is pretty sluggish so far so I’m wondering if anyone is aware of any other avenues? Thanks

    Where’s a good place to buy spare tires and tubes for the CT?

    Got a part number or something for that tube? I looked around the desser site but wasn’t sure how to find it.

    This is what I have right?
  7. Ok so I have the old Marc brake system. Recently had a caliper replaced. Now when I get on the brakes I’m getting pretty heavy shuddering. I’ve got the mechanic looking at it but does anyone more familiar with these have any insight as to the cause? Thanks

    Brakes shaking

    If it was fluid that had contaminated pads would burnishing pads also potentially alleviate?

    Brakes shaking

    All these things were checked and not a factor - anyone have any other ideas what is causing this? Shuddering increases the harder brakes are applied.

    Thanks guys. The brake pads are not new just one caliper was replaced
  12. Where would I get some replacement bolts for the bolts that secure the wheel pants? I need both the ones on the inside and main one on the outside.

    Tire pressure

    Manual says 28psi. At this pressure tires sag a little at the bottom. Is this the right pressure?

    Replacement screws/bolts

    Thanks Tom. The link to the big one is the general page for socket head screws, can you help me identify the right type and size?

  17. I’m in Nashville, with the plane based at MQY. Get in touch if you want to arrange something.
  18. What do you guys use to affix/display your certificate? Anyone found a good size sleeve or something along those lines?

    Flaps for Landing

    Not sure why but my smoothest feeling landings are at 0 flaps and a bit faster.

    Where to get extra keys

    As far as I know, you need to call Flight Design. The door lock may require replacing the lock itself if you don’t have any keys for it. I was curious about this earlier in the year and went to various hardware departments (home depot, ace hardware) and they were unable to make copies of the keys.

    Any CTLSs near Tuscaloosa, AL?

    I’m in Nashville, should you want to come this far.
  22. Baggage in the CTLS baggage compartment needs to be secured, but what connections are in there to tie something down with some bungee cords or something like that? I didn’t see any obvious connection points.
