A rainy Sunday at CYPQ

October 29, 2017

Checking out if a National 490-C parachute will fit well in the front of the Citabria.

Unfortunately it positions the front pilot too close to the instrument panel.  The parachute should work ok for the rear pilot/passenger though.  Will check it out next flight opportunity.

Gave the engine a run and uncovered a problem with the fuel valve.  Better to find that one on the ground than in the air !  Further investigation and repair planned for tomorrow.

Not much happening today at CYPQ with Seneca College on strike and the poor weather.  The terminal was quiet enough to spend some time reading to learn more about hybrid rocket engine design.
