    The Federal Aviation Administration's annual Aerospace Forecast predicts a gradual increase in general aviation hours flown overall, but piston-single aircraft are expected to decline about 0.8% annually in fleet size and hours flown over the next two decades.

    Hope they are wrong. That's 16% in 20 years. Probably aren't any more accurate than the weather guessers.

    A question...I only have about 3/16" clearance between the front inside corner of my fuel tank and the fuel tank access panel at the top of the front spar. I have adjusted the tank down as far as I can without it hitting the skin stiffeners on the bottom. If I had only made the front of the tank a 1/4" shorter. Does anyone see a problem with that hitting the spar and rubbing? The tank is PDT (pretty damn tight).

    If the tank is PDT it is unlikely to chafe on the spar. To alleviate any doubt you could insert a piece of felt or other anti chafe materiel for piece of mind. 3/16" is a lot.

    Half inch would make me happy. I can put some rubber stuff I got for the straps all along the spar edge...that will make me comfortable but short of happy. I'm thinking immobile is better than large clearance gaps, but both are better I think. Hopefully, the next wing will have greater clearance although the tanks are very much the same size as are the spars...we'll see.
