What is this called & where can I get one?

I use a large screw driver and a nylon dog leash.

By the way, these retraints are required at our club. One of the best and simplest safety rules around in my opinion.

Another Avistar Select question...

No air filter is included or needed.

Enjoy the plane. It's a good one. It's what I learned on and I still enjoy flying it from time to time.

Good Luck
