      Afternoon winter flight with Albuquerque's Sandia Mountains in the background.

    We met twice. I dont see a problem in why we couldnt meet again. Yes BRS is a choice and I would like to have it on board in future. In Australia ours trike doesnt have the BRS too :)

    Joz. Brs is a personal choice for sure. Your a great pilot i personally believe in flying with one. But one thing a pilot shouldnt do is use it for an exscuse to ignore all the other common sense aspects to flight. Flying where you most...

    If I felt the need of to buy the BRS I will find a way to have it. But as you said it is a sport. I can fly whenever I want. If something seems to me bad I wont start. Then I have not need to have BRS. Better for me is really good equipments and...

    Understand totally. I too have to pinch on everything . Now i need a new sail . Ive had to push off some matinance and i feel like a bit guilty for my own set of rules. I also feel that one of the biggest safety aspects of flying risks is...

    Guys, I agree too. However I havent a BRS. Not for reason I wouldnt want one, I want it! But its too expensive for me... As Rizzy said I know my limits and I usually dont fly in bad weather. When I was crazy boy, I was in terrible situation twice...

    I agree guys. I have a BRS and really value the potential for security. Hope I never need it ...

    Ahhh one of my best memories of all the fly ins is seeing you enjoying your bike rides. Around dusk when the air is settled and everyone is settled in after the thrill of flying during the day.  Kinda like watching barn swallows dance around....

    I agree with you, the chances of a failure of a well maintained machine is remote. The other thing would be a possibility of a mid air collision. If one survived the collision but didn't have a BRS to deploy. That might ruin the day. I guess it...

    Riz iam pretty well convinced on the issue of a brs being worth it . Iam also always open minded and looking for other safety aspects that could quite pissably make a crash more survivable .thought of and not thought of. Even if its a better pre...

    I would say, it's better to have it then not. My first flight instructor Robert Hendrix used to hold record for successful BRS deployment at the lowest altitude. He told me that at take off in a fixed wing ultralight, the yoke broke and he deployed...

    Damien, thanks for posting this. This is an excellent tool. I borrowed it from one of my pilot friend and despite not being good at using tools, I was able to change all three tires on my Northwing Navajo with ease. I changed them from fat tries to...

  • white eagle posted on white eagle's message board
    Well these long winter months i seem to do alot of thinking and less flying (sucks) but i would just like to add a little discussion on a much controversial discussed topic . Brs or hand held chute safety as oposed to not needed and useless...

    I got this tool from Harbor Freight for $36 with a 20% off coupon. I have to say, it worked really great to rotate this Trike tire on the rim for even wear. I read the manual and looked at videos on youtube on how to use it and it was a very easy...

      Damien excellent.  Didnt even know they had that at harbor frieght. Got to get one for my trikes and my roto tiller with a bad tire. Thanks.

           Another very usefull tool  i recently found was a  very inexspencive boroscope that hooks into your smart phone. I think i paid like 20 dollars for it new on line. I was skeptical  but after recieving it i think its the most useful tool i have for inspecting my bolts tubing , rings pistons  cylinders  carborator.  Inside tubing and places hiden by fabric. It has  a magnet for picking up things and a led light on the 3/8 of an inch camera. So much better than spending $200 on a pro boroscope. 

          When my grandkids are here i can entertain  them by showing them there tonsils? Works great

      Damien, thanks for posting this. This is an excellent tool. I borrowed it from one of my pilot friend and despite not being good at using tools, I was able to change all three tires on my Northwing Navajo with ease. I changed them from fat tries to 6 ply aircraft tires.

      Befor this, I once had Les Schwab do it for me. Second time when I went there and they asked what it was used for and I told them for an Ultralight plane, they refused to do it.
