Economic Way to Transport your Jet

Hi Guys

This was last Saturday on our flying field at the end of the day when everyone packed up their stuff and went home.

As 99% of all people there have cars to transport their Jet, we have a small exception to present you guys.

It is very economic and also good for a small training and endurance exercise

ENJOY

Another way of going home, part 1 (2 min 54 sec)


Another way of going home part.2 (1 min 15 sec)


Regards

My planes are always transported to the field with the wings on. If they don't fit in the Yukon, they are strapped to the roof.

This procudure is often very time consuming and only really allows one large plane at a time to be transported to the field.

The trip home is often much easier. LOL The parts are more compact.

Hahaha See the thing is...he does not even need to fasten the jet on the bike trailer LOL!

He just marked on that special foam piece the lines of the jet for the correct CG and puts the jet on those marks and rides it home, lol.

Crazy times

Hihi, I was thinking the same. Then you can breath in and out some fresh air...only downside is, since he rides it so slow..it will take you ages to get to your destination, of course that is if time is of the essence.

My one way trip is 40 miles. However the trip home seems to go much faster, no worries about damage to the planes.....ha ha ha ha

PS, I use lots of pillows in the Yukon. Pillows don't move and usually the plane gets snagged so it won't move. It won't move even when I slam on the brakes to avoid rear ending the slow poke in front of me.

Tam showed me the trick of using pillows, but, sometimes they also come in handy for him when he sleeps at the shop.

I'd caution against this strategy! I saw a guy do this years ago with a Byron P51D to go a few miles to the field. Only to arrive and find that the wingtips were now touching each other above the canopy!
