Air scoop popping open at high speed by Matt Herron Jr.
This weekend I did a high speed run to test some new seals I had installed on the rudder for vibration. VNE is 147 Kts in the Ventus, and so I only took it up to 130 kts IAS (yes I was only at 2000 ft MSL, so altitude was not a factor). At that speed the air scoop on the sliding canopy window...

finding canopy leaks by Matt Herron Jr.
After a recent canopy replacement (keep it latched on the ground if you don't have your hand on it!) I was dismayed to find that there were significant leaks while flying that caused both wind noise and a lot of unwanted cold air in the cockpit, due to the frame being a bit "sprung" after the...

The clubs in the southwest have a clear advantage and will always win OLC. Should there be a handicap system like we have for our gliders based on geographic location?
