Transparent draught excluders

Recommended Posts

My CTsw had the access openings overhead in the cockpit taped over to prevent draughts when I bought it.The tape eventually fell off so I made transparent covers out of poly carbonate.

The  picture gives all the info, if  any one wishes to copy . The clips are from aircraft aluminium which has enough spring to hold them in place . they allow me to check the connections with a torch without removing them. If I do need to remove them, they come off & are replaced easily.Although it would be better to have one of the clips fitted to a square on the bolt so it could be turned to fit & remove. The spring clips are serving  the purpose for now.

As far as being none approved , I dont think there is any difference to  the tape that was used previously. The advantage is they allow for easy visual inspection.

Nice John.

For those who speak the American version of John's language: The "draught" he speaks of is a "draft" - the air flow through the control linkage access holes in the cockpit. And the "torch" he refers to is actually a "flashlight". I know this stuff because my daughter lives in Brisbane.

Thanks for the translation Mike, do you think I confused many?

Me also, but just for a moment. When I looked where you were located I figured it out pretty quick. I have heard those terms before.
