  In Memory of John Uptigrove
Posted by: marcher07 - 07-16-2019, 02:31 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

One year ago today our esteemed colleague John Uptigrove flew his last mission.  Since his passing, many of us have felt the loss of a good-hearted man.  His family, friends and our crew have shared a few sorrowful moments and many happy memories of John over the past year, through which we remember him fondly.  As time passes, we will always think of him, having the dark moments of grief outshined by the joyful memories of his friendship.

Just picked up a new Mosquito for my wife and me both but I have no idea about it. Where can I take training, and what kind of safety need to take?
Thoughts, please?

I wish to know if there is a way to retrieve the hours ran from a 2009 model " Air " . bird has a " tiny tact " with 6 hours showing on it, this I find very hard to believe for that old of an engine, meters are round style but I have no
name yet. Is there a way to pull this up ( history )? Have been told by owner, bird has been stored inside all
of its life, looks good in photo, but 6 hr.s ? Also wish to know what maintenance required ( every 100 hr or ???
would a log book be required on it or is this something just left up to the owner ( I intend to ask him about it and
would like to know if he tells me the truth ). Were All those models in kit form ?

  Throttle cable and correlator rigging
Posted by: Eblezien - 07-02-2019, 03:44 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

Can someone please explain how the XE285 throttle cable is supposed to be rigged.  From what I understand it's a single cable setup that goes from the throttle grip to the correlator and then to the throttle body(s).  Is the middle portion of the cable (from correlator to the bulkhead thru fitting) not sheathed?  The manual doesn't really explain this in too much detail.  Does anyone have the concern that wear from the correlator ferrule might cause the cable to break?

  XE airframe kit BOM

Does anyone have a bill of materials for the XE airframe kit?  I am looking at a used kit and want to make sure everything is there.  Also, are there any major differences in the airframe kit between the different models?

Hey Gang,

I was talking to a fellow Mosquito pilot today and he has me thinking. How many of you are planning on going to AirVenture this year? It might be nice to gather the Mosquito Nation at one of the worlds biggest aircraft conventions. I have not been there since 1977.  Who is going?

I have recently passed and acquired enough certification to be a legit pilot (hooray!) So I was an entry level pilot with enough training I believe. I recently applied on a helicopter tours company for the pilot position and I actually passed but I am unsure if I should go through with my application. I know I'm a newbie but what is the usual rate for the newbie pilot.? I have no idea so I dont know if the salary was a good deal or not. Can I have some idea about the salary range?
