RVTalk #18 Andrew Sugg from Baylor University delivers
RVTalk #18. A group at Baylor University wants to build a RV-8
and use it with the
for Air Science in (among other stuff) various research capacities.
The biggie there is
Dr. Max Shauck,
a proponent of using ethanol fuel in aircraft for air sampling. As you probably know, I'm a '87 grad of BU, so I'm glad to help spread
this info for 'em. Go Bears! dr
RVTalk #17 (8min
.9MB) Eustace recently interviewed a RV pilot that took off without
latching his 9A slider canopy, and the distraction led to a
non-standard, hard landing and accident. The pilot attempted to to
hold on to the canopy latch while landing. The pilot agreed to sit
down to an interview with Eustace so that others could benefit from the
experience. Thanks to Eustace for presenting to me the idea and
for Jim for being so forthcoming. It's my hope that you go away from this after listening remembering
that: a) use the checklist (if it's a mental one say it
out loud) b) fly the plane if something unusual happens c) non-trainer aircraft do not handle hard
landings as well as training aircraft d) expect an inverted aircraft on the ground to
be pretty hard to egress from e) the cockpit enclosure should protect you in a
roll over event
