    Lets hope I have a similar experience.  Just a ton of variables.

    Turns out that once you obtain a pilot cert, you no longer need a student cert for upgrade training per 61.31 d (2) and 61.56 (g).  So... back to having a green light.  Hopefully all goes well on Monday.

    Transition Sport Pilot to Private Pilot
    Question for those of you who have recently been through this process.  I am scheduled to take my PPL check ride on Monday.  A review of my certs indicates that my temp student cert has recently expired.  I have been flying on a 120 day paper temp student pilot cert.  IACRA indicates they never sent a blue card (student pilot cert) to replace the paper copy as I already have a Sport Pilot cert.  Not sure why that makes sense, and neither does our local FSDO. My PPL will utilize my current SP cert number.
    Kinda in a bind here.  IACRA wont issue a blue card and the FAA is not quite sure how to handle this (kind of a Catch 22).  I don't think I can fly solo until this gets sorted out.  Not sure if I can even do my check ride.
    Any of you run across this before?

    Couple of our Model III with Model IV tail plan, HighWing gear and wide body kit.  Most were taken before the fairings were installed and the Ivo Prop (last pic).

  15. LSaupe added a post in a topic Bi-Annual (Sport Pilot, Private Pilot)   

    Will I then have one cert which indicates PP for Airplane and SP for PPC and WSL?  Or... remain with two separate certificates.

    Bi-Annual (Sport Pilot, Private Pilot)
    Question for you guys.  I current have a sport pilot certificate for airplane, WSL and PPC.  The regs allow that when my bi-annual is due, I can take it in any one of the three categories and I am covered for all three (i.e. you only need one bi-annual and not three).
    I am now training for private pilot in the airplane category.  So... would a bi-annual in an airplane category as a private pilot still cover all three?

    Turbo Prop Avid
    In case you hadn't seen this yet on the Kitfox site.  Neat turbo prop development on an Avid.

    Does the prop then windmill on a glide with engine at idle (or shut down)?

    DUC Propellers
    I see a few birds down at Sun-n-Fun (via video) were fitted with DUC propellers.  Also see the new BeLite Chipper with one mounted on their 912.
    Anyone ever flown one of these?

    Not sure of the negative G's, but cold weather starts, I envision, should not be an issue, as these are sled engines.  I had one and it would fire up easily, even at -10F.  Quite incredible for a 4 stroke.
