    Yep - I've been checking my plug resistance for several years now. My mechanic (who used to exclusively use Champion plugs) "resisted" (pardon the pun) doing the ohm testing until I showed him a...

    From everything I've read, Web is 100% correct (as usual). For experimental aircraft, the GPS vendor must state that their product meets the performance required by Part 91.227 (thus meeting the...

    The little Grumman AA-1C was a hoot to fly. Super-responsive – you think "bank left" and it banked. Sweetest-flying airplane I ever flew.
