I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Quick question. if I were to bring my wild thing, while on the tow who would be on the sticks? Me as a student or the supervisor/instructor? what's the score with insurance?

You can treat it like a normal flight Marty. You can be on the sticks of the Wildthing, with someone supervising. The tug pilot would be flying the tug, obviously. Insurance wise, it is all covered, so long as you have someone supervising.

Anyway, you should be good to go for your A test at teh weekend, right? I've got an airframe under construction that you can fly for it Smile

I always find razor wire is a bit fine for removing those stubborn bits of glass from between one's teeth....

Anyone using a Flair type nose release (bowden cable or piano wire with a ball on the end) will need to bring their own to attach to the towline, I have a towline but over the years seem to have lost ownership of all mine.


If you ain't got a release to suit your system then you won't get a tow

After what's been a basically crap day today I went down to the field this evening to help Rich check out his Wilga for tow duties tomorrow. All went well and the wind dropped to nothing and the sun adorned the field. We sat having a coffee chewing the fat and both regretting that we neither of us had a foamy with us to take advantage of the conditions. Things look good foe tomorrow Aerotow 2010 - August 14th/15th - Page 3 Afro10
