Educating The DAR

The DAR came out on Saturday, was pretty funny…

He had a lot of questions – Is this a kit? What is this made of? Why do the rudders only go outwards and are independent? Why are they parked nose down? What are the control surfaces on the canard called? Why does the canard have an airfoil shape? When is the airbrake used? Why the big things on the ends of the wings? How does the rotary engine work? etc. etc.

So I answered all his questions, thinking he was just quizzing me.

Turns out he really didn’t know! He had never seen a canard aircraft up-close, never seen a composite aircraft, and never seen a rotary engine. When I talked to him again tonight, he had done some research on LongEZs and rotaries, and had a lot more questions.

Nice guy, though, and I passed!

Onward and upward!
