Hello all, sad news,

Larry Koutz's wife called me a little while ago and told me she found him unconscious
and bleeding in the yard. She does not know what he was doing exactly, but speculates
he was trying to pull roots from a recently felled tree.

We were to depart for Sun N Fun tomorrow moring. He is still unconscious at this time,
and is being transferred from Valdosta to Savannah. That is all I know.

I am afraid there is nothing that I can do for him at this point.

please keep him in your prayers.

You may know that Larry has a Q200, and a running corvair engine that he was about to
install.

Terry, his wife, told me she would try to keep me updated. I gave her my cell number.
Contact me via email if you need an update.

Mike,

I realize you fully understand how to fly your airplane, know its
idiosyncrasies, yada yada yada, like the rest of us but stalling
your plane at 200 feet over the runway seems a little strange. I've
never felt a need to stall my plane (in the air)to land. Rarely do I
even need to slip it. Would you expand on this a little more cause I
don't want some new Q pilot practicing the maneuver and pickin his
ass out of the weeds.

Regards,

JP Q200 N46JP

Brief flight report of my own, since I have been barely flying this year.
Yesterday, flew to Waukegan in northern Illinois to visit my dear old mom.
Little over two hours up. Had a headwind and could only do 135 kts.
Overcast about 2,000 ft.

Coming home today, there was a nasty line of T-storms in a diagonal slash
across Illinois. Figured I'd better get an early start, as FSS is calling
for even more convective activity after the first line passes. I decided to
fly down along Lake Michigan and be on the east side of Chicago to delay
meeting the storms. I planned as going as far south as I could, then
landing somewhere until it blew over. To keep out of the Class B airspace
you have to stay at 1,100 AGL or lower. This means, as you pass downtown
Chicago you can look horizontally into the windows of the John Hancock
Building and the Sears Tower. Next thing you pass is the tragic landfill
formerly known as Meigs Field (Mayor Daley is a dirty bastard).

The ceiling was about 2,500 so I trudged along wondering how far south I
would get before the storms intersected with my path. I called Flight Watch
and they suggested I stop in Lafayette, Indiana. Headwinds kept me down to
120 kts. They said the tops were 55,000 ft. and were moving at NE at 40
kts.

Well, I beat the storms to Lafayette area, so I could keep moving and I
kept trudging south. Now close to Terre Haute, IN the sky was blue/black
with interesting cloud formations spitting sparks. But I could see a
lighter sky to the south. Another call to Flight Watch told me if I went a
little farther south I could get around it all. As I passed through a bit
of heavy rain, just before breaking in to the clear, I felt something sharp
on my right knee. What the hell is that?

I was getting an electric shock from the corner of my instrument panel.
Passing through the rain was generating LOTS of static. As soon as I broke
out, the shocks stopped.

After that, it was an uneventful hour home. I have made that trip in less
than two hours when the weather was in my favor; today it took 2:45. Glad I
build in good fuel capacity.

Days like today make flying fun! It's a great plane and it still gives me
great pleasure. Keep sanding; and don't try this at home!

Flight report

Mike Dwyer <mdwyer@...>
 

Hey keep those flight reports coming! Sams was shocking!

Mine is boring, but... On Saturday the wife and I flew from PIE to Lakeland FL LAL for lunch. 85F light wind 30 mi vis, a good day to have finished all that sanding and actually have a flying plane. My plan was to throttle back to 155 mph and lean it out and see how little gas I can use. Sun N Fun starts on Wednesday and to me it was just another weekend but hey the tower there was busy. Lots of stuff coming in for the air show and all the tents and stuff look to be all setup. I made a crappy landing at Lakeland. They were doing right turns and it's impossible to keep the airport in sight when it's below you to the right. You kinda have to guess when to turn base.

I was too high and too fast. Hate that. I pulled her up into a stall and started sinking, still too high, one more... Now I need power! Oh well it wasn't pretty but I didn't bust it. You ever hear - a good landing is one where the pilot walks away... and a great landing is where you can use the airplane again... so it was actually a great landing but kinda embarrassing if you ask me... Early in my Q flying I would have gone around on an approach like that but I got 20 years in this thing... I should have gone around!

Had a nice grouper lunch and headed back to PIE around the north side of the Tampa Class B. I'm 10 mi NW and ready to call in when a Lady pilot in a Cessna with a slightly similar N number calls in 10 mi NW! Where is that Cessna? I'm at 2600' and it turns out the Cessna was around 1000. I never saw her but I'm sure I zoomed over her... Planes in metropolitan areas that are under you are virtually invsiable. I called in 9.6 miles out and the tower gave me a left downwind to 35R which she answered for me. After a few confusing exchanges the tower nicely explained that we were both in the same area and that this is for the experimental... We worked it out but I must confess that I was laughing each time she took my call! I did my long landing and pulled off right at my hangar where I planned.

Nice trip, beautiful day, keep sanding. PS used 5 gal auto gas for about 1:20 flight.

Mike Q200 (plan to buzz into Sun N Fun on Saturday only).


Re: Traveling Bird

Sam Hoskins <shoskins@...>
 

As I re-read my post, I see I may have given the wrong impression. I did
NOT fly into the T-storm when I was near Terra Haute, IN; it was about 10
miles away, off to my right.

Re: Vortex Generators

Keith Welsh <kfly@...>
 

Hi Ryan:

"Is anyone flying a Q1 or Q2 with Vortex Generators ?"

Perhaps a little late to respond to your question but yes I have been for several years now and heavily recommend them. I wouldn't suggest flying a GU canard w/o them. You'll notice improvement in all aspects of flight. Don't get me wrong, the GU is a fine airfoil and the VG's make it a superior airfoil. It is gentler in the pitch buck realm and responsive at low speeds not to mention it handles rain, dirt and bugs with no worries.
A good all around wing.
Cleaning around them is a pain in the a-- though and is my only complaint.

Jan-------- The Q1 is a nice little airplane. With the 503 Rotax it's a great airplane with a limited range. These airplanes are very light and are a bit of a handfull if you are not a seasoned flier.
The price of used Quickies varies alot. Make sure it has flown before or you may be buying someones troubles. I've been trying to sell my Super Quickie for awhile and have had to turn down two offers from fellows with 80 hrs in a C-150. I feel it is a bit beyong their ability. I' ve only flown the Quickie with the 52 hp , and although I let my wife fly the Turbocharged Subaru Dragonfly, I'm a bit leary of letting her go in the Quickie.

Spring Fling Tandem Wing Fly-in

Keith Welsh <kfly@...>
 

Hello everyone:

My thanks to Humble for getting the word out for me regarding the upcoming Spring Fling at the Casey, IL Municipal Airport June 2-3rd. As Doug mentioned my computer was down and is working pretty good now.

I would like to extend an invitation for you all to attend the spring edition of the Quickie / Dragonfly flyin. I apologize for the late notice but we had been trying to work with airport in Mattoon where we have held the event in the past. Due to a change in management the FBO manager was not willing to make any kind of guarantee on the availability of the hangar we had used in the past thus eliminating the airport from consideration.

This years event will be held at a very nice and easy to get to, both by land and air, airport not far from Mattoon. Sandy and Howie, the FBO owner operators, are excited to host us for the weekend and have promised anything we will need. The Casey runway is 4/22, 4000' X 75'. The town is a population of 2900 and will make for a very nice setting for a quiet and fun filled weekend. We plan to take you all to a nice restaurant not far from the airport on Friday evening called Richards Farm which is a converted barn. Come as you are dress is welcomed. Saturday we plan to fix burgers at the airport with pizza for the evening meal at the airport as well. With the usual hang around the hotel lobby till midnight the norm at most flyin's I thought this might make for an evening of getting the most from the weekend for everyone. And I'm very happy have Sam Hoskins agree to give what should prove to be a very beneficial demonstration on Conducting the Quickie Condition Inspection.

If you have any questions please send a message or call 217-826-2967 or my cell at 812-230-2355.

Thanks and I'll look forward to seeing you in June.
Keith Welsh
