  1. The ENAC, responsible for all flight rules including VFR, has banned all VFR flights, local, regional or (inter-)national, to prevent people (even if they fly single) to meet others on or outside of their airport of departure and so to spread the virus. It is even forbidden at the moment for everyone without a very strict and documented necessity, to move (afoot, by car or otherwise) from one city or community to another (even if that could be just 2 miles along the road). Heavy fines, and even imprisonment could be the consequence. Food can only be purchased inside your community, and only if
  2. Sorry for any mistakes, but in my nautical experience the rule means that for any 60 units (km, Nm, miles) that you fly with 1 degree off course, you are then 1 unit off course. So after 30 units flying, you are 0.5 unit off course. Please correct me if I’m wrong. At sea (and flying) without straight visible lines the ‘normal’ accuracy of hand steering is +/- 5 degrees, nowadays easily corrected by electronics/ gps. Greetings from Italy
  3. Well, here we go again. The Halley KFT (check on Google) from Hungary produces the Apollo DeltaJet 2 (and other), using NEW BMW 1200 GS engines , engine specific Trijekt electronics and a gearbox made by German Take-Off GmbH. Mine has now some 230 hours, I had it just maintained and checked (new oil, plugs, filters + gas cable adjust per vacuometer). There's no carburettor hassle. I don't know exactly how many they have produced since 1996, but it must be hundreds (before 2010 they used the BMW1150), mostly sold in Europe, including Russia. (BTW the REVO looks like a copy of the Deltajet
  4. Don't know if anyone is still interested in the original question; my Apollo DeltaJet 2 with BMW 1200 GS engine, TakeOff reduction and Trijekt engine management /electronic injection has of course different characteristics from a Rotax 912/ 4 cylinder, or the 914, but is a jewel to fly with low vibration and low consumption (8-10 ltr/hr at 90-100 km/h). Propellor kicks in from 2000 revs. Downside (?): it only has one magneto, but so far that does the job. Can recommend the combination even if the total weight is on the higher side. Needs a good, around, airflow (oil and air cooled, with oil r
  5. Did you try to put on a ferrite on both ends?
  6. Ryanair's, Micheal O'Leary, arrives in a hotel in Dublin, he goes to the bar and asks for a pint of draught Guinness. The barman nodded and said, "That will be one Euro please, Mr. O'Leary." Somewhat taken aback, O'Leary replied, "That's very cheap," and handed over his money. "Well, we try to stay ahead of the competition," said the barman, "and we are serving free pints every Wednesday evening from 6 until 8 p.m. We have the cheapest beer in Ireland." "That is a remarkable value," comments Michael. "I see you don't seem to have a glass, so you'll probably need one of ours. That w
