Extinguishers


Chris Walterson
 

Any suggestions for placement of the fire extinguishers? The rule say it needs to be accessible by the pilot with his seat belt on.

 My old Cessna  it was behind the seat and you could only reach it if you dislocated your shoulder, so the rules may be open for interpretation.  My biplane it is between my legs on the floor. Also hard to reach.  The only spot I found is on the seat back between the seats.  It would have to be less than 10 inches long. I would like to install it behind the seat back in the storage compartment, but I don't know how that would go over.

 I don't think I would ever let an extinguisher go in flight. I think I would rather be able to see and breath. Hopefully,  I never have to make that choice.

I installed the ELT on the side of the fuselage behind the passenger compartment.

 I also installed a master switch that you reach under the middle console on the seat back to turn off and on.

 I found a Garmin 327 transponder and encoder.  Installed the antenna in the tail cone with a disconnect to remove the tail.

 Waiting for my SDS system to finish the engine and panel and almost ready for paint when the weather improves.

 Still having fun and staying a little bit sane.   Take care------------  Chris

I have mine in the quick-release mount on the back side of the passenger seat back. Could be an issue if the passenger is in the plane, but so far, that has not happened. I can easily tilt that forward in flight and remove it with one hand. I may find a different place for it if I start flying passengers.

Cheers,
Jay

I noticed that Corbin has his between the seats so it is padded by them to an extent.

    Looks like the same extinquisher as mine so going with that for me too.  Jim P also but slightly higher.

Anybody consider installing a horizontal tube in the seat bulkhead between the seats and shoving it in there?

Chris,
We aren't required to carry a F/Extinguisher in Oz .. but a Pilot friend mentioned to me he came across a ... like Mini .. hand held F/Extinguisher .. that sounded good for a/craft use .. its a small hand held unit that is ok for Electrical and Petrol ... has the potential 'early/small' cockpit fire suppression .. with out maybe choking the Cockpit ... he has ordered .. but the suppler is waiting for stock .. im wanting to check it out when he receives his .. but a google search should reveal all ..,
Cheers
Graham

That’s a great idea. We put ours in the cubby above the main wing in the Tri-Q and in the Q200 just between the seats on the bulkhead.
