Main Discussion / Tech Talk:
Larry brought in a Bleriot aircraft prop that was hand carved. Made from a single piece of pine rather than laminated as we typically see today.
Larry also brought in a rib off a 1929 Fairchild constructed of Spruce with mahogany plywood and assembled with glue and brass nails. Some manufacturers pulled the nails, or staples, but others, obviously, left them in. The Hughes H-4 (Spruce Goose) had them pulled once the glue cured the to save weight.
Someone landed a Piper Arrow on International drive. The plane had obviously been set outside a hanger for years at Luck field.
We discussed the MB airshow schedule, content, and arrangements.
Discussed an ADS-B wing mounted system (replaces the wingtip lights) - called sky beacon by uAvionix
LSA rules update allows operation into controlled airports, operate reconfigurable gear (land to sea), and the logbook is now your license with DL as medical in the plane.
Discussed the requirements for getting certified or type rated in a jet (ie. SubSonex)
McCulloch gyrocopter type cert story and the changes in DARs since those days.
Some people have been able to get the TSA approved South Carolina drivers license.
Discussed travel restrictions and peculiarity of international travel and how much information about you is loaded in their databases.
