My real name is Joe and I own a Sky Raider 1 ELSA and a Mitchellwing A-10 ultralight. I'm a member of the EAA and USUA and secretary of the Oroville, CA chapter of EAA.

I just completed the LSA Repairman Inspection course with Rainbow Aviation in Corning, CA so (once I personally appear at the local FSDO in Sacramento - what an unnecessary pain)) I can do my own annuals on the Sky Raider. Smile

Welcome to the forum and congrats on finishing you repairman cert course. Just out of curiosity how much does your skyraider weigh and what are you using for power?

3 things that dont matter altitude above you runway behind you and the gas back at the hanger

takeoff is optional landing is mandatory

Fly only in the middle of the air, the edges are identified by buildings trees and houses, and it is much more difficult to fly there.

It is better to be on the ground wishing you were flying then flying and wishing you were on the ground!

Thanks for the props on the Repairman course. It is basically a "pay your money, spend your time and get your cert" operation. All 13 guys passed with no problem.

My Sky Raider weighs in at about 440 lbs with a single carb Rotax DCDI 503 and a 3 blade IVO prop. It also has a BRS. It has tundra tires that also add some weight. I posted a note to the Light Sport section with a link to a photo (couldn't get this forum to post the image directly even tho it claims it is possible.)

Is your SkyRaider the single seat or two seat model?

The SkyRaider 1 is the original single place a/c.
