I am just happy to have some insurance to keep the airport happy.  Maybe the
airports and insurance carriers are working together.

Alan, I just got the DVD pack. It is wonderful. It made me feel like I

was there. Your production is fantastic. I can't imagine the hours it

took to put this all together.



For those who haven't ordered theirs yet, it is certainly worth the

price of admission. Some really good flying shots and lots of

"discussion".

Great job Alan,

Hey All,
I know this isn't "Quickie" related, but I'm just finishing up a really great book that my wife bought me for Christmas. It's about a guy going from cow puncher in the early American West, to flying over the trenches in WWI. First as an observer, and finally as a pilot.

He is credited with 23 confirmed kills, including 1 he shot down on his first time flying as an observer. What I found most incredible about that is that he was attached (as a buck private) to a Unit of Army Truck Drivers earlier that morning!

His first hand account of breaking wild horses is pretty incredible also, and made me literally laugh out loud in several places. A lot of his stories reminded me of how I was as a young man.

He died in 1970, and his memoires weren't published until 2000! What an incredible treasure. I wish he were still around to talk to.

Here's a link to the book on Amazon in case you're interested:

I decide to stay near the west coast of FL and am showing 90 NMI from the launch pad, but the air is clear blue, perfect. Then I hear that they got a 1 minute window to get off hold...

I get the camcorder ready 3 2 1 and a few seconds later the shuttle pops out of the Haze and cloud layer.

Hi Guys,

Dr. Steve's wife has decided to sell Steve's airplane.  Brad Baerg and myself
are helping her sell it.  I've posted it with a few pictures on quickheads.com. 
If anyone is interested shoot me or Brad an email direct.  It's a very nice
flying Q2 that has a new Revmaster on it (less than 100 hours since new).  Very
nice panel.  $15000.00

I'll also be posting Dr. Steve's Jabiru 3300.  Comes complete with all
accessories and has less than 200 hours on it.  It did have a significant prop
strike and will need dismantle/inspect.  Asking $8000.00

Thanks

Note 1: I love my Q.
The mission today was for the wife and I to meet two other airplanes in
Ocala FL for Lunch. That's about 45 min as the Q flies from home base. The
wind showed 10 knots on my nose, no problem. As we were taxing out I see my
buddy coming back in his Lightning..(http://www.flylightning.net/). I
found out later that his carb heat control wire broke and the knob came out
in his hand... never a good sign. Oh well now there is still one friend to
meet there. He's flying from ZPH in his RV6a. Off from PIE we stayed low
going North, like 400 feet over Tampa bay and up the canal to Lake Tarpon
where we started a climb to our cruising altitude of 3000 feet +-500 feet +-
20 degrees of heading, hey no reason to work hard at holding a heading.
Turned on some Jos Stone from the MP3 player and we droned on. Ocala has
always had lots of private jets and it's only recently got a control tower.
They had me report a 3 mile base for 36 with two other airplanes inbound
somewhere... I followed the Cessna on 2 mile final and made an ok landing,
not a squeaker but didn't bounce back up in the air. A 1940 Howard pulled in
and parked next to us. Nice guy. He said it goes 170 mph. I said wow, I'm
doing 170 at 5 GPH, he looked like he almost had a stroke cause he uses more
like 36 GPH! See note 1 above.

It was getting toward 1 pm and my RV6a buddy hadn't shown yet. He's always
late anyway. This time I told him 11:30 knowing we'd be there at 12:00. So
we had lunch and made it back out to the plane. We taxied to the end of 36
in Ocala and there's my buddy #2 for the airport. At least he made it a
little after 1pm. The tower had me take off before him as a small blimp was
slowly flying over the airport. Really wanted to ask permission to buzz the
blimp but I doubted they have my sense of humor so I refrained...

Next week is the George Read Memorial flyin at Twelve Oaks, a 2600' grass
strip. Years ago I made it in there with George in the right seat, somewhat
scary. George test flew the Q200 that I built. He passed away a few years
ago. Now the trees on the end are taller and the runway has several sand
pits. Not Q capable. I buzzed the field and my friend Gary came out waving
his arms wildly to say Hi. He knew I wasn't landing, just saying Hi.

As we climbed back to the crazy high altitude of 3000 feet the smoke and
haze was pretty bad. We Floridians get spoiled with the normal 20 mile+ vis
but today at times was pretty bad. Put the Jos Stone back on and we droned
into the haze. Will all my new fangled EFIS and moving map a little haze is
no problem. Back in the old days I remember a trip to the Keys when the the
sky, water, everything was the same gray haze, no horizon what so ever...
and I turned back. Now I'm much more capable with all this electronics as
long as it keeps working!

Back in the Tampa area the tower tells me to do a left downwind for 36R.
I'm close in downwind ready to turn base when a Coast Guard C130 calls ready
for take off. The tower tells him to hold short for landing traffic (me).
He's burning all that JetA and I'm paying for it so I keep it in close, real
close. No final at all, just a swooping left turn right over the numbers...
If the C130 was looking out their window they were probably jealous that I
could do that... no in after thought they probably like being able to get
up, stretch their legs, and get a cup of coffee while flying...

Another ok, not a squeaker landing and we taxi back to the hangar, one more
successful mission. Probably put 1.5 hours on the clock, don't really care
cause I'm not paying $160 an hour. See Note 1 above.

Re: First Flight soon

Martin Skiby
 

Great advise Rick, I always called several other builders in the area and handed them all a yellow note pad. They all walked around and took notes on things that they saw. I would then address everyting on each list prior to being ready. The more eyes on the project the better. The advise on the audience is right on. Just a few people for support and that is all you need. Call it off if you are not comfortable. In our case we have had a test pilot avaialble that has done several first flights in just about everything. It was nice hading it over to him for the first flight and evauation. I am sure you will be just fine and I am really excited for you.

Have fun and enjoy the results of your hard work.

Rick, The bulkheads are in and we are mounting the canopy next week. Also we will be cutting the foam and completing the wings also.

Thanks again for the great work,

That said, it is a good idea to have a couple knowledgeable people around.
We always have at least three people pre-flight without talking to each
other just to try to catch anything out. If not unanimous to "go" we ask
the pilot to delay.

I like to hang a digital voice recorder (video would be ok too) on the

This is an exciting time that you are approaching. Just a few thoughts about
that first flight.

Double check everything on the plane the day before.
Pick a day when the wind is calm.
Fire retardant flight suit is good and available at the surplus store.
Caffeine, if you use it should be held to a min. on flight day.
If you don't feel 100% physically and mentally, postpone.
Let the airplane fly off the runway, the Q tends to jump off the runway.
Orbit the field at about 3000 ft AGL, find your pitch-buck speed with the engine
at idle so you have a feel for when the plane quits flying.
There are hundreds of other things that we can all think of but the bottom line
is take your time and you will have many great flights to follow.

I wish I lived closer, I would come up and make sure you got plenty of stick
time.
