    2694New wing for the XT-912…

    This morning was cold and we heard an engine fire up. We all looked out from the briefing room to see Ken taxi by in his XT-912, but something was different? The wing was missing. Never mind Ken was flapping his arms and as we know if you have a powerful engine a brick will fly.

    Flying the Tanarg ES

    Friday, March 27th, 2015

    Lou Toucan number three…

    P1050065Roy’s wife Lou arrived with Roy and the first thing she said was “I fly real aircraft”. We didn’t quit know what Lou meant. As you know all flying machines are real aircraft. Lou had some misguided idea that a Trike was not a real aircraft. It came the time for Lou to have her first flight in a Tanarg. We were up for half an hour, and Lou was flying from the front seat. We did turns and climbing and descending and Lou’s major scary one the dreaded STALL. We arrived back on the runway with a very light touch down. Now Lou knows what a real aircraft flies like. Well done Lou. By the way Lou will be back soon to do her endorsement.
