    The seminars we do are exactly that, hands on to see how the system works. I would simply ask that, before you criticize our system, that you get some training and than make an educated decision if...

    There is the guy you need to learn from. Tutorials and videos don't work - you have to successfully do an entire wing.

    If you cannot do somebody else's wing, then before you cover the entire...

    Me too. Encapsulate that puppy.

    My first recover I was looking for those weird shaped celluloid cutouts that go at the back of the stab - Ken Smith, in 1968, told me to just cut them out of...

    Here is a suggestion from an observer. I know my way around dope and Stits, but have only observed (as the supervising IA) the Stewart system.

    I would recommend a prospective Stewart System user...

    I would use Steve's aluminum ones, or have some cut out of aluminum locally. And plus one on the doilys.

    Every once in a while an inspection plate disappears - especially since we use the 99 cent...

    Sunlight turns Dacron to white dust in very short order. If you park outside, watch out for that. All fabric cracks along stringers. Most of the time it is not a big deal. Gear legs get beat up...

    Easier in Texas.

    I have recounted this before, but I got tagged for carefully flying under class B, and not calling approach control.
    I left one airport - controller told me to contact SoCal. I...

    Looks like a small percentage of the total out there. Haven't we seen about four ADs like this? My crank has a 25 hr. inspection regime.

    What he says. And yeah, we are happily flying in rule airspace with the non-electric J3s. Socal (at least some of them) wants to talk to us even when we are under class B. We don't want to talk to...

    I have a hard time watching when reading is so much faster.

    I assume this is to fix looseness? You guys helped me immensely when I had to tackle one of these. Back then one could buy oversize AN...

    Just so you know - we have two J3s with B&C starters, powered by Odyssey PC545 batteries. We get 50-70 starts between charges for at least the first two years of battery life. No wind generator. ...

    Would need to see that in a regulation. It is true that once a generator is installed and recorded on the engine, that aircraft will always and forever need ADS-B in rule airspace. That does not...

    By the way, we measure toe by simply taking measurements front to back on the tire ridges. Zero is best, but the aircraft tolerates a half inch difference (toe in) on 8:00x6 or 4.

    3/4" toe in...

    Heavy Super Cub on 6:00x6s, used only on pavement for student training. What do you guys think of stock gear legs while I recover the HD legs?

    This one is 1200 empty, almost - in part because...

    Me too. I just found this one in some tools my buddy left me - a complete set. I think the 3/8" drive kills it.

    There are places on those elbows where an open end wrench is easier.

    I just found a Snap-On 6 point socket with integral U joint. 3/8" drive. Doesn't look all that thin-walled. I have been using Thorsen six point 1/4 drive with a speedometer flex cable for years. ...

    Yes, but you need a statement of total time. That first log cannot say "estimated time 1000 hours."

    You are legal with logs that start on Feb 7, 2020, that say "Total time from records 3254...

    Continental is different. They published a service bulletin that clearly states that it has all been approved by the FAA.But in general, I lean in the same direction as Dave - the PA-11 is on the...

    Thanks. I watched the first two minutes; I think he said that they have until 2023 to do this. Too bad somebody hasn't done an article with footnotes since then - I read lots faster than I listen.

    Dan - read that carefully. Article is 2018; author is sure there will be an NPRM in January 2019. We should have bet him.

    Doesn't have to make sense.
    Reminds me of the medical issue - if you have never, ever held an FAA medical you can fly Sport practically forever.
    On the other hand, if you flunked your last medical,...

    Don't know. I use brass nuts and graphite anti seize compound. I snug them up gently on to "no-blow" gaskets. Never have any problems. I machine my own brass nuts, but somehow cannot find my hex...

    I have a J3 and a Super Decathlon. Initial investment total $43,500. Both! But I cheated - bought the J3 in 1962.

    Champs and Citabrias are probably best for dimensionally challenged people. And they are true aviation bargains.
