What We're Talking About On EuroGA
That time of year again here so what do others use to remove bug squash that is easy and not harmful to the paint work?
Today I‘m flying the Bonanza with a portable Oxygen system using the Oxyfly.
What I don’t like so much is, that all the oxygen hosepipes are also portable, so they are running through the cabin.
Now I‘m making up my mind if there is a possibility to retrofit the hosepipe system only to have a certified hosepipe system with one entry point where I can attach the Oxyfly to the hosepipes and four exit point for each seat.
The Oxyfly can not be certified, it has to stay manually removeable.
The "Mk 1 Eyeball" is PROB99 an old Royal Air Force expression, for keeping a lookout.
Often, I see a target on the TCAS at about 1 mile, my level (which means plus or minus 200ft, assuming his transponder is in spec; I know mine is spot on), and in the front i.e. 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock.

I‘m getting 5 1/2 hrs endurance out of it, with an hour reserve that’s 4 1/2 hours. That‘s 720NM @ N0160. My bladder gives up before ;)
It's selecting the wrong GIZMO (the one in New South Wales, Australia). Most software that is faced with two or more waypoints with the same name gives you the option of selecting which waypoint y...
Any retractable, wouldn't you keep the gear retracted and pull the prop full backward ?
Should give you VSIs around 700-900.
If i lower the gear and leave the prop in cruise, the ...
Maybe this has been explained before, but how can a country officially decine such a safety requirement ?
I guess ICAO can't give a fine to the UK but isn't it some kind of l...
Nothing is too nerdy
I would add the diode anyway. Safety always comes first; if you lose electrics while flying you will wish you did it.
Regarding post #1, the blog on their RV build is here. Jwoolard is still "out there"; whether he is still flying anything I have no idea.
