NTC aircraft type ratings

Hi

Does anyone know where I can find the type rating codes for NTCA aircraft. I am specifically looking for the Aerotrike, Pegasus Quantum and Air Creation designation codes.

I.E. Windlass is Z127

Re: Aircraft canopy

Thanks. I bought the Naxel from Maisey's plastics and cut the windshield from that. Much better than perspex but still has a bit of wave when looked through obliquely. Not as good as the American product but locally obtainable :)

Aircraft canopy

Does anyone know where a good quality canopy can be made locally out of Lexan or Nalex? Need it for a Waaiex. It is the rear bubble part. It would have to be formed.

Re: Am i going mad!!!!!

Thanks

Re: Lexan or perspex windshield needed

Hey Duck If you had to sit in a Waiex you will see that you have to peer over the dashboard and not being able to see the runway in a taildragger at high speed is very disconcerting. You will K (**) K yourself! The angle of the windscreen is very shallow as you can just peer over the dashboard when ...

Re: Lexan or perspex windshield needed

Hi Mogas

Thanks for the reply.

Yes it's formed out of a flat sheet. Are there thicker sheets available such as 3 mm? If you have a chance over the weekend please have a look through it at a very flat angle if possible and see if there is any distortion.

Thanks

Re: Throttle cable stuck in flight

Just a comment. Would it not be better to squirt graphite powder into the splitter and cables rather than oil them? Oil tends to attract dust which may aggravate the problem.
