What We're Talking About On EuroGA >>

Why can't engines be internally inspected with an endoscope?

It seems that most can’t.

Some Lyco variants (which don’t have a combined dipstick + filler hole) can reportedly be inspected in so far as one can see some cam lobe(s), just about.

But it seems a dumb design. It would be so easy to have a screw-in inspection plug somewhere, or several of them.

Pulling cylinders to check the camshaft is ridiculous.

Does mountain flying get any more hardcore than that?

As the title says: Have you ever seen anything more impressive than that in mountain flying?

Watch the following video and see when you recognise the “strip”. (It’s actually an official USFS landing strip in Idaho — apparently still maintained, but reserved for emergencies only).



Too bad they didn’t post a video of the takeoff! (The other three vids on his Vimeo account are also not bad.)

P.s.: The guy in the video also offers flight training, see http://www.techflying.com.

You will find that they rarely answer emails. And the more south in Europe you will go on your trips, the greater chance of no answers due to bad English. Brush up on your VFR skills - you can almo...

The constant wear ones are the ones to have comfortable and not cumbersome. As in Switlik brand. Plus it doesnt scare everybody.
