Re: Saab Safir to sell: HB-DBL, s/n 439, TAH~4800, TSO~500.

Hello Mangotango! A *bird* that wants to go home? A lady...! ;) And honestly, to me, there's no "unfortunately" about sweden. As a matter of fact, I've heard of two or three planes (not Safir's, though) that went so sweden and the dealings with the new owners as well as the swedish authorities were ...

Re: Fuel tanks on Safirs that were ferried to Ethiopia

Might be a bit late, but nevertheless... If I remember right, those planes were a batch of 12 aircrafts that were quite special. Saab had already switched to manufacturing of the C-model and already had a batch of wings, but still B-fuselages. Practical as they are, they simply fitted a valve in the...

Re: Saab Safir to sell: HB-DBL, s/n 439, TAH~4800, TSO~500.

I've had a meeting with my co-owner and we went over the "final-figures"... It appears the math of our expenses for the restoration was quite on the conservative side... We are looking for 70'000€ as a start for negotiations, and we're open for suggestions! I hope we'll see it flying again soon, eve...

Saab Safir to sell: HB-DBL, s/n 439, TAH~4800, TSO~500.

Hello everybody! Sorry for my absence here! My priorities in life have changed, which drove me away from flightsim-business to other things. Like flying rc-helicopters, preferrably turbine-driven ones... ;) As my friends priorities have changed even more - moving his home further away from airport, ...

Just for information... It appears the HB-DBL will not be able to participate in the fly-in. We had the engine to get repaired (chips in oil due to corrosion on tappets due to non-conserved storage before we took over the baby over...) and pulled on our financial side. Furthermore, I had some change...

Hello Thomas! Maybe a little late, but nevertheless... The following comes from the austrian's aerobatic-education-guide to the Safir-D. For a looping, you need to dive first. Approximately 20° Nose down. At 140KIAS you enter the looping, which will result in around 3,2g. On top, you must push the s...

Franco,

Please be more specific: Which D-Version?

In the DBL, you switch the Nav On by:
- Switching Battery and Alternator on.
- Making sure the NAV-CB is in.
- Switching the Nav on by selecting that little switch on top of the tuning-knob. Same with the Comm, by the way...

Heya, Per! Saab 91D Safir GTX... :D Seriously, yes, we thought about experimental and also historic. But those two categories are not really defined in the same manner in different countries...

Hello Dave, It is indeed not strange, but really genius... Maybe it still requires a mechanic which preps the aircraft, but having the cowl flaps adjustable on ground means that you can adjust to the current OAT. Since normally you have *roughly* the same degration of temperature with increasing alt...

franco, That point has also been risen during beta-test.

Sjoerd,

The HB-DBL bears as one of few - if not even the only one - a 3-bladed propeller, together with a different engine.
Because of this, slip-stream-effects from prop-wash are very different, also trim behaving differently in reallife.

Cheers,

Daniel

First movie... ;)

Hello, fellow Safir enthusiasts! Today, I've met only with a collegue of mine on a flightsim server, because he asked me to talk to him about the Safir, getting some information and critique across, since he has to review it... Well, one word lead to the other, and soon, I had another friend of mine...
