The shielding & cradle mechanism / structure to support the fragile balsa glider under a helicopter was truly impressive.

The autopilot board looks like an APM 2.8

Formula 1 of the SKY – Video share of the month

This months video share is brought to you by Stefan Langer’s YouTube channel For more sail plane content make sure to check it out.

Very impressive video of sail planes flying over the mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina with Aeroklub Livno hosing the event. It’s amazing to see how long these machines can stay in the air with no motor.

In high school I got the opportunity to take some glider lessons in a Schweizer SGS 2-33 in Boulder Colorado. I would recommend getting a few training flights in gliders if your working on your private pilots license & up. It’s a valuable experience to see what an aircraft is like with no engine adding massive competence to powered aircraft engine out procedures. If your in the Boulder area the current company doing glider training is called Mile High Gliding.

Carbon tips and tricks video from Mike Patey – Video share of the month

 

This video is brought to you by Mike Patey’s YouTube Channel.

Most famous for his Draco bush plane (a highly modified PZL-104 Wilga)

It’s always cool to see other composite fabricators methods for making parts. Big takeaway I got from this video is a method for making a joggle

  • “paper toweling” the cowl split line
  • putting release tape on the throw away part
  • build up the joggle area
  • cure & dremel cut the remaining ligaments of the  finished part allowing it to be cut free.

Mike is certainly an excellent role model  when it comes to business & aviation and his content is something I enjoy normalizing to.

Airliner methods can help save lives in GA – Video share of the month

A very informative video from Steve Thorne @ Flight Chops YouTube channel on key differences between Airliner (commercial) flight practices vs. General Aviation.

A key take away is Airline pilots focus on the MINIMUM maneuvering speed that also gives them coverage for 30º banked turns. According to the instructor / FAA this is typically 40% above the stall speed.

General Aviation Pilots usually associated maneuvering speed as a MAXIMUM to avoid structural issues in gusty conditions.

Lots of other good in sights in the video as well.
