Vibration Monitor (Hyde, Wanttaja?) by RST Engineering
Necessity, as they say, is a mother. I am in the process of reinventing a square wheel called a vibration monitor. The electronics is relatively trivial IF the input and output parameters are known. What we know is that the engine is going to have a fundamental frequency at cruise RPM. Let's...

Turbine air start -- too cold? by Juan Jimenez
The engine on my homebuilt aircraft is a small French turbine, a Microturbo 022 Couguar (one version behind the TRS-18-046). It starts using good ol' air impingement, which the manual specs out to 145 psi, 1.21 lbs volume. Now, I always had problems motoring the engine to a high enough RPM where...

FAR:Safety Pilot & High Performance/Complex? by Jim

UK planning to evict N-registered aircraft by Juan Jimenez
