    For those that need another unique aircraft in their stable. Get your own Twin Champ for $35k.

    And at a not-so-local airport, apparently the locals think it's a Supercub Fly-in.

    The Lancer is not a converted anything. It has it's own type certificate http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library/rgMakeModel.nsf/0/bead91c1f5a947968525672e00466554/$FILE/A3ce.PDF
    and was built to be a low cost multi-engine trainer. There is an STC to convert the engines to 0-320s. I used to think that it would be fun to change the engines and put it on floats.

    Meanwhile, in Italy, where Marco Bulgheroni has been leading the charge, it sure looks like they would fit right in with us here in the states. Proof that flying off-airport is still a universal language.

    The older, bolder generation did it all before us. A couple of bicycles hanging from wings captured the attention of thousands. A pit bike hung on the side, or a dirt bike slung underneath gets discussed for days by us, and shocks the general aviation community.

    And yet, a farmer somewhere probably needed to feed the heifers in the dead of winter and came up with a better solution. No fuss, no issues, just got the job done.
    Kudos to Mr. Dunn of Maine for posting the photo.

    This is a funny article by Kevin Garrison -

    Link:
    https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/oh-iv...dUAK4vnr4HPMrQ

    Copied and Pasted :

    Oh, I've Flown Over the Desert in a Plane With No Mags....

    • Published on January 28, 2019

    The whole concept of a light sport aircraft is a strange thing. I understand that the Federal Aviation Administration wanted to begin a new class of aircraft that people could fly without having a third class medical, but the rules seem a little arbitrary to me.
    For example, where did they come up with that 1,320 max gross weight? It is pretty clear that they set the gross weight limit so low that your average sport pilot would not be allowed to fly a Cessna 150, 172 or Cherokee. He or she would have to either fly an airplane like a Champ (which is likely sixty or more years old) or shell out over a hundred grand for a new light sport airplane. In other words, the government pretty much made the whole thing too expensive from the beginning. They were clearly working for the aircraft manufacturers in this case, not the pilots.

    I have been flying the Champ as a light sport airplane for a while now and really enjoy every minute of it. For one thing, it takes me back to my younger days. I flew Champs a lot when I was a teen-aged line boy. Second, there is nothing more fun than flying a champ with the window open and the door off on a warm day.

    I recently thought I would move up and fly another kind of light sport airplane. This is the kind that has the bubble canopy, the high-tech instrument panel and (oh my gawd) the Rotax engine.

    I am sure that some of you out there in reader land just love the Rotax engine. You, of course, are idiots.

    The Rotax is the devil and represents everything evil about aviation today.

    First of all, the damn thing doesn’t have magnetos – it has some weird-assed European electronic ignition system. I just can’t trust an airplane that doesn’t have mags. It just ain’t natural.
    Next, in order to check the stupid thing you have to remove the entire top of the cowling. To check the oil requires that you turn the prop about fifty times to “burp” the engine. Excuse me? Wasn’t moving the prop considered dangerous? They even want you to rotate the prop in the regular direction. (about seventy five revolutions) Having no mags and no impulse couplers, this is perfectly safe with a Rotax – how about when the Light sport pilots move on to Champs? It’ll be “finger losing time” at the old Aeronca hangar.

    Finally, this engine-related spawn of Satan runs at about fifty gazillion RPM. Hell, if you get below 2,000 RPM they get all upset because you are FUBARing the gear box. Which leads to the incredulous question: The DAMN THING HAS a GEAR BOX???

    Once I climbed into the little bubble canopied POS to go flying, I noticed that there was no airflow in the cockpit during taxi. It was hotter than the surface of Spock’s home planet. We finally got it into the air only to learn that it only had a 10 knot crosswind limitation and flew like a short-coupled, under-powered, un-stable and much harder to fly version of the 1972 American Yankee, which at least had a normal engine.

    I am going back to my champs and cubs, thank you very much. The future may belong to these overpriced, hard to fly pieces of crap, but I won’t be piloting them. Mo-bettah they are flown by thirteen year olds from the ground using radio control boxes.

    I found an airplane designed by someone other than just an engineer.

    Who knew that wheels up in an A-10 simply made it a Taildragger and seems field repairable.

    The Gatling gun barrels, on the other hand, seem to have gotten a little close to its target.

    Eddie?

    Not familiar with this one. Got any details?

    Yes, the wheels do not completely retract.

    Did some research. The jet landed at Edwards AFB circa 2008. Serious gun malfunction. Nose gear questionable. Landed gear up.

    Better photo in the link. The flight lead landed on the dry lake bed runway. Shut down Edwards for a day.

    Funniest thread I've seen in awhile.

    If you're on Facebook, go ready Kyle Irvings post in Taildragger pilots united. The responses are classic. The FAA has redistributed airplane ownership....

    Awhile back on cable there was a show where actual WWII bombadiers tried to hit a target in the desert. Might have been 909. The conclusion was that currency is everything.
    What's a go-around?
