    Sort of nebulous - doesn't say five days a week, eight hours a day. If interpreted as "full time" it would be more onerous than the IA requirement of "actively engaged" -

    There is a conversion service letter that states it (the service letter) is FAA approved. Not sure it covers that exact conversion. I'll try to dig it up.

    With Web on this - there are all kinds of interconnected adjustments. Big pain in the neck even with factory cowls.

    I think the answer is you must have permission of the owner to use an STC. Sometimes the owner will say “use my products and you may use the STC.” See the Stitts or Cooper manuals.

    It is not as ugly as a Tri-Pacer.
    I too thought the Pacer was not really all that attractive, but then Don Lee showed me how to fly a good 160 Pacer on skis - I remain forever impressed.

    My SL-40 ran for decades with zero problems. It has a superb RF Section. But it was in my J3 - really difficult to use memory functions, and lousy internal intercom. Unfortunately, I sold it last...

    I had a 20 hour solo pilot survive a total engine failure over the freeway. All it takes is a little training and some awareness.

    Interesting read. He did not address an aircraft with strobes only. I guess Mark has to fix his flasher?

    Well, Callie Graphics has done amazing things for me, both with that bear and with some pretty creative model train stuff. Kind of block out what you want and see if she can do it.
