Stall horn testing

Post by DA40 »

In these Corona times, how do you test the stall horn? I would like to avoid «kissing and sucking» for the test on the rental :lol:

I've used one of these for years ---https://www.sportys.com/pilotshop/stall ... ester.html
Of course handkerchiefs also work well.

The small plastic bellows work great. But you can also use a small piece of clear vinyl tubing, probably about $0.50 per foot at home depot
