Kanab Rutan Fly-In 2018

Fly-ins & Events 16 May 2018
Hello Canard Pilots & Enthusiasts, We had a great time with everyone last year in Kanab, and we are preparing for the Labor Day weekend event again this year. The Rutan Kanab 2018 Fly-in will take place September 1, 2, and 3 ( Saturday, Sunday, and departures on Monday). It’s become popular with a number of people to arrive a day early on Friday, so we have coordinated with the hotel to block the rooms for the nights of Friday Aug. 31st, Saturday and Sunday Sept. 1, and 2nd. If you haven’t been to the Rutan Kanab Fly-in, KKNB is a small town airport. The three main reasons people say...

Torsional wrap on the nose strut

Chapter 13 01 May 2018
I'm replacing the nose strut on my Velocity.  It's a Cozy Mark IV nose strut.  I can't remember how many plies of BID are used to wrap it.  Is it just one ply in each direction so that there are two plies overlapping on the sides?   Doug Holub 2009 Velocity FG w/ electric nose lift

Varieze Canard Bolt Torque and quick disconnect pins

VariEze 28 Apr 2018
Hello All,   I am a new Varieze owner and can find no mention specifically of proper torque settings specifically for the Canard Bolts. This particular aircraft does not have nut plates but rather nylon lock nuts with large area washers.    I am assuming that the 30-70 in/lbs is standard with the only mention in my literature being 3ft/lbs (36 in/lbs) for 1/4in bolts?   I am also desirous of learning about the best quick disconnect keeper for the elevator pushrod retainment. Is the Standard AN3 Bolt and a lock nut the best option?    Thanks for any advice in ad...
