    This brings up something I have pondered over the last two years:
    After an overhaul or cylinder change is there any reason to re torque the case/cylinders at 10, 100, or 1000 hours? Should the prop...

    Steve I think this is one of those apples and oranges things. Garmin didn't give me the rebate, the FAA did. Unfortunately that sounds like income to me.

    Any chance you could comment on any changes you noted like trending lower static RPM or even were you noticing "softer" pull through on the prop during the 10-20 hours you have run it? What I am...

    Look at a Piper Apache. They used to claim it increases cooling and provides additional thrust? Really? I think it was the jet age thing sales gimmick. It definitely makes the O320 sound bigger than...

    I use Avare 100% of the time. First used it on my droid phone and then later purchased a $129.00 (on sale) Samsung pad A at Costco. Use that on an old salvaged yoke mount for the bigger screen. All...

    No real world experience here yet. I was thinking of those that might have an older transponder (not fully solid state) and was pointing out that for 1300 more they could get a whole new setup. What...

    One thing to keep in mind is that many of the older transponders use a tube in the final amp and that tube goes bad over time (KT76A?) and for an additional 1000$ you can get the GT335 bundled deal...

    I think all type accepted aircraft have the "twist" and some dihedral. The twist is to cause the wing tips to stall last (lower angle of attack than the rest of the wing) thereby giving some aileron...
