Right, Vern. I have twice as many wings…for redundancy!  What you cannot see, but you can hear in the controller’s voice, is that we were doing side by side takeoffs from the intersection, (where I was) …AND… simultaneously from the threshold on the north end of 18. This is why you hear him occasionally say “…you have traffic coming up behind you!” in an insistent voice once he has cleared an intersection takeoff!

 

Cheers,

Jay

Hi Sam,

 

18 departures are side by side on the main runway only. If you line up on the left side of runway, then is 150 is your heading below 500 AGL to 5 miles, then you are on your own. Right side stays runway heading to 5 miles. Unfortunately, I was going off the left side and wanting to fly west after 5 miles, so I was pretty vigilant. The incoming planes are 1800 or 2300 MSL depending on speed, so I stayed at 2000 MSL flying west. RVSM anyone?

 

Cheers,

Jay

Fun departures.

 

It seems most of the time I've had departures on 36L, which calls for a right turn before you get to the tower.  Then follow the lake shoreline below 500 feet until five miles south, then you're on your own. They want you at or below 500 feet to stay below any arriving aircraft.

Hey Mike,

I don't have great pics or diagrams yet.  My avionics guy has had a couple of delays.  One was a new baby and, before that, he had to quarantine for testing positive for Covid.  He is back now and has mounted my Vertical Power unit, the Garmin GTR 20 remote comm, and my OAT probe.  He has all the wiring and harnesses complete so I am hoping progress speeds up soon.  He has the ability to cut the panel himself but I haven't seen a diagram just yet.  Once we know where everything will be mounted he will update the wiring diagram.

Subject: [Q-List] OSH Report
Returned back home this morning after a very enjoyable visit to Oshkosh 2021. There was a lot of pent up energy after last year’s cancelled version, so lots of airplanes (I think the field filled up by late Sunday), and lots of people attending. There was a notable absence of international people this year, and with the exception of a few intrepid Canadians, I did not see international planes or companies. The Germans flew a big Nato Airbus A400 transport in, but that was it. Only 3 of the 4 large exhibit halls were open, and there were fewer rows in the ones that were open than in past years. It was hot and very humid most of the week, with lots of smoke from Canadian wildfires making for almost IFR haze. I had that all the way home. We had the requisite OSH thunderstorms, which pretty much came at night, but not too soggy on the field, and no damage.
 
Since I flew my Tri-Q2 in for the first time I went very early, the Thursday before, so as to avoid the traffic. I came in maybe 1 hour after the field opened with pink shirt controllers. The traffic was still the conga line even then, but I had a couple miles of spacing. Nevertheless there is always something. There was an RV in front of me as we were landing on 18. The basic idea is to fly downwind to remain short of the tower (blue dot) then turn base and final to land. I hear on the tower frequency “Are you going to call my base?” coming from the RV in front of me. No answer, so the next thing I see is he has made a 180 and is flying back towards me on downwind. I know there is no one close behind me so I made a sharp descending left 360 and when I am able to see him again, he has found the base, and I have spacing, so I continue the downwind, base and land on 18. The tower said nothing to either one of us during this, so I guess they did not see it or thought “no harm, no foul”. Shortly after touching down, I hear the controller say “welcome to Sun and Fun” and then catch himself and correct to Oshkosh. Oh well, I guess we were all finding our sea legs. My landing pattern looked like this on Flightaware.
I had a buddy texting me asking why I did a snap roll on downwind. These Quickies can make a tight turn!
 
I camped in homebuilt camping for the first time. It is a little noisier than other places I have camped on the field in the past, but there was a lot of good conversation and camaraderie. I was surrounded by RV’s and for most of the week I had the only Quickie of any flavor on the field. Matthew Curcio from California came through for one day flying his Q200 and had his new bride with him, and that was the only other Q to show. He says they have a house near John Wayne airport and he commutes with his Q200 to Mojave to work every day. He said he put 1200 hours on it in the last two years. Jerry and Nancy Marstall drove in with their motorhome, so we palled around a bit during the week. Keith Welsh probably thought I was stalking him, since I kept running into him all over the place.
 
When I pulled in on Thursday, the coordinator of the homebuilt showcase asked me if I wanted to fly in the air show on Tuesday. I said yes and after some paperwork and a briefing which included all the “bigs” in the airshow world, I felt pretty pumped to fly my little Quickie in the big show! We fly a take off pass along the crowd, then another pass at 500 and then land on the parallel. It was a blast. Found a video online that includes the whole show, but if you hit the link below it should start in the middle with my take off roll (if not, go to 2:00:46 and start). I has only my takeoff pass, but is a good look. So lots of people along the flight line got to ask each other “What is that thing???”
 
 
Had a Quickie get together at the Homebuilder back porch on Wednesday morning and had a good crowd of the about 7-8 of the regulars and a few others who were curious about the type (airplane that is). The only other one that flew a homebuilt in was Keith Welsh but he scooted in in his Thorp T-18. We all chatted for an hour or so and then wandered off to see all of the rest of the goodies.
 
I had my Q judged and made it pretty far into the competition, since I had a visit late in the week with a couple golf carts full of judges who pawed over it for 15 minutes or so while I talked as fast as I could. i had total of 13 judges initials on my prop card, but I did not walk away with any hardware. Was a good experience though.
 
My other flights to and from were typical cross country flights.  I managed to have gusty cross winds on almost all landings, so I got better at that. My engine is much peppier when I am not flying at 6000’ DA and higher that is the norm out here. I got off shorter, climbed faster and burned lots more fuel! I don’t see how you people can breathe down there near sea level!
 
Coming and going, I flew 1100 miles each way, at MSL cruising altitudes from below 2000’ to 12500’ and my little Q averaged 160 mph TAS on less than 7 gph (better at higher altitude), so am very happy with that. Great little airplanes, these Q’s. Good cross country platforms and fun to fly. You Just don’t have much cargo space 😊, but we have UPS for that.

Re: OSH Report

Jay Scheevel
 

Oh Yeah.  Forgot to mention, if you back the video up a few minutes from where I have it que’ed up you can watch the Yak 110 (two Yak 55’s strapped together with a J33 on a pod in the center..he kept all four main gear and both tail wheels). That guy is crazy-nuts!  But it is entertaining. We were all lined up 200 yards inside the crowd line, waiting to fly our part, so it was a thrill watching him that closely. He was way to close to the ground for some of the stuff he was doing, but I guess that’s why they call it a waiver. Anyway, add that to my official report.

 

Cheers,

Jay

I camped in homebuilt camping for the first time. It is a little noisier than other places I have camped on the field in the past, but there was a lot of good conversation and camaraderie. I was surrounded by RV’s and for most of the week I had the only Quickie of any flavor on the field. Matthew Curcio from California came through for one day flying his Q200 and had his new bride with him, and that was the only other Q to show. He says they have a house near John Wayne airport and he commutes with his Q200 to Mojave to work every day. He said he put 1200 hours on it in the last two years. Jerry and Nancy Marstall drove in with their motorhome, so we palled around a bit during the week. Keith Welsh probably thought I was stalking him, since I kept running into him all over the place.

 

When I pulled in on Thursday, the coordinator of the homebuilt showcase asked me if I wanted to fly in the air show on Tuesday. I said yes and after some paperwork and a briefing which included all the “bigs” in the airshow world, I felt pretty pumped to fly my little Quickie in the big show! We fly a take off pass along the crowd, then another pass at 500 and then land on the parallel. It was a blast. Found a video online that includes the whole show, but if you hit the link below it should start in the middle with my take off roll (if not, go to 2:00:46 and start). I has only my takeoff pass, but is a good look. So lots of people along the flight line got to ask each other “What is that thing???”

 

 

Had a Quickie get together at the Homebuilder back porch on Wednesday morning and had a good crowd of the about 7-8 of the regulars and a few others who were curious about the type (airplane that is). The only other one that flew a homebuilt in was Keith Welsh but he scooted in in his Thorp T-18. We all chatted for an hour or so and then wandered off to see all of the rest of the goodies.

 

I had my Q judged and made it pretty far into the competition, since I had a visit late in the week with a couple golf carts full of judges who pawed over it for 15 minutes or so while I talked as fast as I could. i had total of 13 judges initials on my prop card, but I did not walk away with any hardware. Was a good experience though.

 

My other flights to and from were typical cross country flights.  I managed to have gusty cross winds on almost all landings, so I got better at that. My engine is much peppier when I am not flying at 6000’ DA and higher that is the norm out here. I got off shorter, climbed faster and burned lots more fuel! I don’t see how you people can breathe down there near sea level!

 

Coming and going, I flew 1100 miles each way, at MSL cruising altitudes from below 2000’ to 12500’ and my little Q averaged 160 mph TAS on less than 7 gph (better at higher altitude), so am very happy with that. Great little airplanes, these Q’s. Good cross country platforms and fun to fly. You Just don’t have much cargo space 😊, but we have UPS for that.

 

Cheers,

Delighted with your Osh report. I used to write my editorials in a fun readable way and you just did it !

Makes me almost feel I was with you at Osh and gives me a treat for all the stuff I wrote.

Thanks for taking the time,

J.

Subject: [Q-List] OSH Report

Returned back home this morning after a very enjoyable visit to Oshkosh 2021. There was a lot of pent up energy after last year’s cancelled version, so lots of airplanes (I think the field filled up by late Sunday), and lots of people attending. There was a notable absence of international people this year, and with the exception of a few intrepid Canadians, I did not see international planes or companies. The Germans flew a big Nato Airbus A400 transport in, but that was it. Only 3 of the 4 large exhibit halls were open, and there were fewer rows in the ones that were open than in past years. It was hot and very humid most of the week, with lots of smoke from Canadian wildfires making for almost IFR haze. I had that all the way home. We had the requisite OSH thunderstorms, which pretty much came at night, but not too soggy on the field, and no damage.

 

Since I flew my Tri-Q2 in for the first time I went very early, the Thursday before, so as to avoid the traffic. I came in maybe 1 hour after the field opened with pink shirt controllers. The traffic was still the conga line even then, but I had a couple miles of spacing. Nevertheless there is always something. There was an RV in front of me as we were landing on 18. The basic idea is to fly downwind to remain short of the tower (blue dot) then turn base and final to land. I hear on the tower frequency “Are you going to call my base?” coming from the RV in front of me. No answer, so the next thing I see is he has made a 180 and is flying back towards me on downwind. I know there is no one close behind me so I made a sharp descending left 360 and when I am able to see him again, he has found the base, and I have spacing, so I continue the downwind, base and land on 18. The tower said nothing to either one of us during this, so I guess they did not see it or thought “no harm, no foul”. Shortly after touching down, I hear the controller say “welcome to Sun and Fun” and then catch himself and correct to Oshkosh. Oh well, I guess we were all finding our sea legs. My landing pattern looked like this on Flightaware.
