Quick tip for those with small airplanes that have no tie-down rings (and here at Oshkosh, we proved last weekend that EVERYTHING needs to be tied down!). This is how Sonex secures their little jets – a ratchet strap all the way around the wing, secured to the ground anchor. The nose gear was secured to the anchor with a shorter strap, wrapped around the strut. Store that one away for later.
