RE: [Dragonflylist] Re: pilots operating handbook
- Hi Owen, Les,
We're getting him hooked up with Bruce Dixon and Wayne Ulvestad out of So.
Dakota. Bruce is very low solo time (if not none yet) in his DF. I also
highly recommended Wayne as he has given quite a bit of training stick time
and has a Mark I to boot. I'm going to try to go over Manhattan in the next
few weeks to help Les give it the once over.
Reagrds, Spud Spornitz

There are (IIRC) DF guys in the Topeka area - I would have thought Spud
or Pat would have given you names by now, maybe they did off line. I
think Bruce Dixon was one. Guys who have flying ships and are on the
DBFN list but not on the internet.
The big thing that they say over and over in the newsletter is: if you
bounce at all, full throttle and go around immediately! Bounces ALWAYS
get worse in the DF and if you don't react right away you will break a
prop or worse.
Of course, I haven't flown one myself so I can't say whether this is
still true with the inboard gear.

- NO, do not try to fly any canard aircraft without some dual time in
same type, anyone can get airborn.
