Had a great day today with the Jetmach.
Weather was a bit off and wind was 15mph gusting to 25mph.[&o]
This plane took it in its stride, no problem at all.
As this is a sports/trainer I am using this model to teach a guy from our club who wants to get into jets. He has not that long ago passed his ‘A’ test. (basic solo qualification here in the UK)
He is on the buddy lead and today he was flying all the flight apart from the landing.
It was too blustery and turbulent to do his first turbine landing, so that was down to me.
Unfortunately I got less flying time but lots of landings!
This really is a good trainer in the broadest sense of the word, but when you open the tap….it really does go!
No video or pics today, as I say weather and light was naf.

Hi Paul

I have a Jetmach 44, flew several times.
You told here the thrust line is altered to lower the back of engine, 3 degree.
I noticed the engine mount is installed as positive degree to centerline of fuselage.
Do you mean that 'to lower the back of engine' is to set as more positive angle or to down the nose of engine forward?

The back of the engine needs to go down, or the front come up.
The result is the same.

Paul, thanks for your reply
Engine mount has positive angle already, so you mean it needs some alteration to set more positive angle as going the back of engine down?

Check with the manufacturer, they may have changed the model to incorporate my recommendations.
