Re: ZU-ENN "Extreme Makeover"

Peter I like your new cowl, wonder if the Rotex 912 with exhaust will fit inside.
My cowl is to small to fit a decent exhaust sistem. My 912 sound like a VW engin, becauce I could not fit a big enough silencer.

Russell did you make a mould of the new Jabiru cowl?

Re: Whisper Gathering & Fly-In

I am in. ZU EID wanted to fly to Paradize Beach long time ago, but the date (during December) was out, due to family stuff.

I will put in leave for the three days, it will be a good idea to held the flyin during one of the two weekends ( 1-3 May will fit me)

Cheers

Re: Whisper for sale.

What is the possibility to give us photos and the performance details of your aircraft?
Cruising speed, climb rate, fuel consumption etc. Maybe I can find a buyer amongst our Flying club members.
Cheers.

Re: Tanqua Fly In - June 13th/15th

The Tanqua fly in was grate, and so was all the people that attended the Fly in. Peter it was nice meeting you, and yes I think we must buy a Vario and start using the Whispers for gliding. The express has also a good glide ratio. Must admit I am a bit afraid flying close to the mountains. But will ...

Re: Tanqua Fly In - June 13th/15th

Hi Peter, I am going as well. Not sure which whisper to use. Do you now if a long wing whisper will fit. I asked Morne but have not received an answer yet. There is a long mountain ridge to the north of Tanqua (Nieuwoudtville), and if the conditions is OK we can go mountain soaring. See you there. J...
