      Brilliant work Dave. Really fantastic landing and cool head under pressure. I had a flight where I came very close to running out fo fuel myself. I did a trip 2 up from the dry lake south of Boulder City NV up to Valley of Fire near the north end of Lake Mead and back- all on the NorthWing 12 Gallon tank. On landing I flew past Boulder City airport (where they had fuel) thinking I was fine (my gas gage read 1/4 tank), and landed down at the dry lake again. When I landed my friend and I had an argument about how much fuel I had. I was pretty sure 2 or so gallons, he was pretty sure much less than that. So when I got the trike home we drained the fuel to see how much. The answer was 1/2 gallon. So we came pretty close to a potentially dangerous situation. We spent the rest of the weekend pouring a gallon at a time into my tank, marking each gallon line with a sharpie, and re-calibrating the fuel sender that had been lying to us. Now I also have a fuel flow meter that calculates how much fuel has been used in flight. Knowledge is power!

      One of the things I like about trikes is the exceptional visibility, specially when picking up a field to put it down. I'm also a fixed wing pilot, but prefer flying trikes or anything open cockpit. Too much metal around you (blind spots) when flying GAs. Good job Dave!

      Great job Dave.  Thanks for sharing. Makes us all do a double triple check.

    I think the plugin requires Flash - typically not on most phones.

    We flew at Hušky on annual goulash party. Husky is like a small recreational area where my friend lives and he has his trike there. There is no runway, no airport... a field only

    Well the 2019 NW Trike Fly-in is behind us.  Things went very smoothly (except for our La Grande folks)  and the week was exceptional.  Great company and decent flying!  Actually, I enjoyed the cooler weather and the cloud flying...

I have an active student now and I want finish his training with the old wing because he knows it well. For the other side, we (my colleague from our trike flying school and me) bought used trike in a goood condition. We will use it as a training trike. Wing Quasar CZ15,4, trike Cross 5 Sport (the same type as mine is), R912 80HP.
