Burping The Rotax 912 Sport Aviation / Experimenter "Technically Speaking" Article July 2017

Burping The Rotax 912 If you’re interested in a spirited discussion, or a heated argument, I would recommend that you bring up the subject of burping the Rotax 912 engine at your next EAA meeting. Let’s start off with the definition of burping. When we talk about burping the Rotax 9 series engines (912, 912S, 912IS, and 914) we are essentially talking about the method by which we remove all of the oil from the crankcase of the engine and …

July 19, 2017:  Off to Oshkosh The voyage to Oshkosh begins. The 4300 mile round trip journey, has in the past, always been quite eventful. There is always something that goes wrong.

Although the weather for Oshkosh this year looks to be about as good as we’ve ever seen, the weather along the way looks as though it’s going to …

57-80-10 Large Gap Seal

The gap seal system that we have developed for the EMG-6 electric motor glider is a substantial improvement over the traditional gap seal system used on most ultralights. The most common gap seal type system involves sewing a tab with Velcro onto the trailing edge of the wing and having a tab with the reverse Velcro sewn onto the leading-edge of the aileron. This is a great job at preventing the airflow from transitioning from the high-pressure lower surface of …

The Invasion of the Drones

The Invasion of the Drones Like it or not drone technology is not only here to stay, we are confident that in the very near future, the infiltration of drone technology will completely revolutionize how we even think about the term “experimental aircraft.” It wasn’t many years ago, that those of us involved in the RC (radio control) model aircraft industry, started tinkering around with some of the new, electric powered, micro helicopters. With the advent of the new lithium …

Part 107: The Toddler in the FARs, Sport Aviation / Experimenter "Technically Speaking" Article April 2017

Part 107: The Toddler in the FARs “Technically Speaking” Article April 2017 The new 14 CFR Part 107 regulation governs small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) or drones. A UAS by definition is an aircraft without a human pilot onboard and is controlled by an operator on the ground. Part 107 is one of the youngest regulations within the FARs. In preparation for this article we contacted the FAA’s UAS division. We had a bit of an advantage, since Earl Lawrence, …

    By Carol Carpenter   The thing about life with Brian is that everything happens “suddenly.” There was no discussion leading up to Brian setting up the EMG for me to fly this evening . . .so I did not have time anticipated the event.
