Rigging Zulu Hotel

Post by Charles Petersen » Thu May 30, 2019 3:12 pm

Today my weather forecast suggests rain Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

I'd very much like to get ZH rigged so I can add some labels to the instrument panel and update the FLARM software. So I am hoping for some volunteers (it is a K-21 after all), to utilize the Saturday morning window of opportunity, if the rain follows the predicted timetable.

That means it will have to fit into the hangar, but I assume there's room as UZS is, I believe, gone to XU Aviation.

I also have the belts to reinstall in the DG 500. The outside weather shouldn't affect that job.

A couple more and we're good.

Interesting fact: Eagle Sport Aviation, the aero club of the Embry Riddell Aerospace University, has a K-21 that they keep in the trailer, and reg for each day of flying, and then de-rig again at day's end.

And we can't even get bugs washed and batteries on charge reliably :(
