    DooMaw - building a STOL

    Still flying Mark, I think during the week YCAB would have to be one of the most deserted airfields except for those helicopters. They must be nice folk though as they always give me a radio check.

    Float Amphibious LSA Hire

    So my perfect day would be a fly on floats in AM and a kite surf PM Basically flying and kite surfing are a perfect match, except a bad float landing is a whole lot worse than a bad kite jump, but you still gotta get the flare right in both.

    Single Seat Commuter

    Jack, I know of 2 kestrels that may be of interest and fit your criteria, similar to mine (photo) but on wheels. PM me if interested.
  13. Before you attempt to fly it. The wings don't appear to have any where enough tension in them. The skin should be drum tight i.e. no wrinkles as depicted in the photo. Happy flying.

    Trailerable aircraft

    Mick as a rule one float must be able to displace the mtow of the aircraft i.e. if mtow 300kg you will need 300litres per float. A set of floats for the above ac gets reasonable expensive. For materials alone I would say approx $3,000 and thats not the support structure.
