    I did a lot of glider towing with a 150hp SuperCub. Field elevation was only about 400’ msl. My technique was to lean in the climb at about 1500’ and leave the mixture there all day (unless...

    The requirements of 61.73 are having been a military pilot with specific background/experience. I don’t think that applies in this case.

    You can always land diagonal on the runway, or if it is blowing strong enough, across the runway.

    My dad always said if it’s blowing crosswind strong enough that you aren’t comfortable, find...

    No reason you can’t take multiple rides together. I did commercial multi engine, Instrument Airplane and Instrument Instructor all in the same ride.

    I don’t think there is any requirement to get a lesser certificate. If you meet the experience requirements and pass the written and practical test you should get the certificate. Question is, what...

    Towed gliders for years with a PA-18A-150. Likely over 12,000 tows. I think every landing was full flaps in all wind conditions all the way to about 28 kt crosswind. Every landing was 3 or 2 point...

    Unless the replacement is PMA’d for the PA-22 and is installed the same way. PMA is a design approval, manufacturing approval and installation approval.

    Read Part 43 Appendix A Paragraph (a)(1)(xii). One could make a point that moving the cooler is a change to the basic design of the oil and/or cooling system. Using the flow chart in AC 43-210A, one...

    Certainly better than not having some level of privacy. I just believe you should be able to turn it off “legally” when not in rule airspace.

  13. Runup magneto drop: Owners Handbook vs Lycoming Operating Manual

    Seems like the DER pilot didn’t have a test plan that was designed to show compliance to the regulations! The test plan should have only had test points that were required to meet specific regulatory...

    Based on my observations on both FlyQ and ForeFlight, even in Anonymous mode, the ADSB still spits out your N# and ICAO code for about the first 5 minutes of flight. Anyone that wants to follow the...

    Go fly

    I used to go under the bridges going up the Hudson years ago. Wouldn't even consider it today with the number of cameras out there.

    If you read Part 45, it clearly states the “C”, “R”, “L” or “X” are not part of the registration. I think having an NX in the ADSB output string is a little different than a fictitious (or someone...

    I often wonder what would be worse, getting caught based on ADSB for flying to low, or getting caught with the wrong N# programmed into your ADSB unit?

    I fixed the master switch after shut down, leave the strobe switch on all the time. If you get out and you see flashes, you left the master on!

    Check to see if you have a buy back option, if you don’t, and they total it, it goes to auction.

    From what I’ve seen, most of the time the ALJ finds exactly as the FAA alleges. They rubber stamp anything FAA says.
