Not getting rid of me so easily

Recommended Posts

I was very fortunate. One of my worst days somehow turned into one of my best???

The mission to replace my beloved but somewhat beat to death CTSW is going well.  Expecting to be back in the air in 3-4 weeks.

Relieved here in Tucson.  Must have periodic pictures of the mountains.

good to hear Duane,  

With an April break from mountain flying I am turning my attention to editing.  This metamorphic rock that's always shadowed in Convict Canyon is my nemisis.

Does that mean another CT, or something else?

it does, another CTSW.  I still prefer low wings and want more speed but the CTSW checks more boxes than anything else.

I bought my 07 CTSW almost 3 years ago not knowing anything about LSA airplanes. Turns out to be the best num nuts purchase I’ve ever made! This forum has made the difference between a bad experience and an awesome one! Thanks everyone!

I am quite excited about the 07 SW replacement because it upgrades so many things from my old bird.  I like everything from the graphics on down.  It falls short on Skyview but otherwise quite sweet.

I'm sensitive to the bittersweet occasion for the member selling to me and it doesn't seem the time to be bragging on it.

Hi Ed,

What was your flap setting when the wind pushed you over?

-6 with a tailwind and gusts were cross to quartering.

The gust lifted my tail near the end of the taxiway.  I used throttle to regain directional control and was unable to stop.  Attempting to stop / turn at the end caused the nose wheel collapse and nose over.
