    ditto here... (ctsw2006) random light (not often) during warm up, unless rpm's are higher. Never seems to happen later in day

  3. ICON Fatal Accident

    Perhaps, we can all agree that the FAA ADM "hazardous attitude" term "macho" applies... perhaps with a bit of impulsivity and invulnerability thrown in....
  4. ICON Fatal Accident

    More video, from prior to the event.... with even more, worse, low-level showboating... More video
  5. ICON Fatal Accident

    Video of crash... plenty of evidence of showboating... but, based on some comments, there "could" have been a control issue... warning rough language
  6. ICON Fatal Accident

    Too little, too late.... Icon's very recently issued "Low altitude flying guidelines", published just over 2 weeks ago: https://www.iconaircraft.com/updates/2017/icon-aircraft-low-altitude-flying-guidelines

  9. US desert October 2017

    It was nice to get some coverage of the event by FD Germany. Hopefully, we can get some of you Euro-fliers over for our next event in mid-Oct 2018. There are a few CTs for rent in the Southwest, or always a few empty seats.

    I found this a while back... http://www.boldmethod.com/learn-to-fly/aerodynamics/slip-skid-stall/
  11. ICON Fatal Accident

    Wow... Icon just announced 30-50% price increases.... $389K loaded, $269K base (and they won't sell any base until at least 2019!)
