When I got my glider rating, my instructor gave me a package of one of them so I would have the manufacturer and part number of the external catheter with the least adhesive (I can post it if anyone wants to know). I find the seats in the glider too uncomfortable to fly more than 3 hours, so I've not had use for it.I can't remember if I had ever mentioned (here on HBA) an old story from my soaring days, about a nurse who told me she had something they used in hospitals called an "external urinary catheter". She said that using one of those, attaching it to a tube under my clothes, and then having a collection bag attached to the hose down by my ankle, would allow me to fly safely for many hours.
It was something like a triple thickness condom, with an instrument fitting sized hose barb on the end of it to attach the tube. I was all set to use this setup at a regional sailplane contest, somewhere around 1984 or so, and I went into the bathroom after the pilots meeting to install it. When I opened the package, I got scared to death, because the first thing I saw was a big roll of double-sided tape!
Doing inventory pictures for a company with locations over the eastern half of the U.S.Pops
Was this one of your mapping type contracts? Part 91 operation?
Interesting.Doing inventory pictures for a company with locations over the eastern half of the U.S.
Also doing the mapping contracts were about the same amount of flying each day. Only difference is flying a grid in a location instead of long cross country flights. All Part 91
Added-- Also a lot of work for large engineering companies of their projects over the U.S. Advertising Companies, etc.
Lots of different work.
There is FB group. The designer died and the family have killed the design. A couple of guys are working on clearing up a few things in the plans and eventually making the a very slight different set of plans available under another name. Best place to get a set of BK 1 plans is from someone on the FB group.
Crew leaves sign blocking urinal: MX, PLEASE JUST PISS DIRECTLY ON THE GROUND. PEE STINKS UP THE PLANE AND FREEZES/BREAKS THE DRAIN IN WINTER. ANYWAY, YOU ARENT FOOLING ANYONE. THX.Mechanics working on the plane in the yard (gravel) would use it occasionally, when they did it in the winter it would freeze up and split the aluminum tube, then it peed inside.
Ah those mechanics have sense of humors that are not to be tested by intelligent pilots. I mean there is no telling what they would do in response to such a sign, it may involve all pilots and they may track down the "guilty party".Crew leaves sign blocking urinal: MX, PLEASE JUST PISS DIRECTLY ON THE GROUND.
