We often refer to incidence angles, CG location, and control travels with respect to our pattern airplanes, but just how accurate are the numbers? Does it even matter? We each may have different criteria for making these measurements. Sometimes it’s just for initial set-up to the designer’s specs, or maybe for future reference as we […]

Another One in the Books

Hard to believe Bryan and I just finished our 4th visit to the World Championship. It was a great event. The Swiss really outdid themselves with the organization and execution, truly world class.

Bryan and I had a flight delayed out of New Orleans for a maintenance issue so we missed our connecting flight to Zurich. We arrived in Atlanta last night, […]

That’s part of competition, always striving to make yourself better, always looking for that next little leg up. Bryan and I never stop pushing for better. You have to […]
