    I never did understand that rabbit thing but the bowline has to be one the easiest knots to tie and one of the most useful. I probably learned it in the Boy Scouts but it wasn't until I was rock...

    The routing diagram was taken from the FX-3 AFM. I assume it would also be included in earlier Carbon Cub manuals. That's the way my sling seat is fitted so not much doubt it will fit. It's the...

    The way the seat support straps are secured is almost identical to the way seat belts are attached in many type certificated gliders. Did any that have loosened or detached have the strap routed...

    My only experience with brazing anything on an aircraft was the repair of the air box of an Aeronca 11-BC Chief. The spindle and the bearing doublers were totally shot. I unbrazed the flap valve...

    Under what circumstances would adding a non structural support tab be considered to be a structural repair? I don't see that the quoted para is equivalent to "43.13 sez don't braze to structure."

    Ok, thanks. I should have read the service memo before posting. Now I have read it I see that it is not expected to give full spar strength as it can only be applied outboard of the lift strut.

    I don't see anything there that would have prevented my fitting owner produced brake pads without approved drawings. What specifically would have made that illegal or not airworthy?

    I agree that partial fuel could be an aggravating factor. Under hard braking all the fuel that would have been at the back of the tanks in 3 point attitude will move to the front of the tanks. This...

    What do you suppose would be the answer if, as I proposed, the aircraft with the large tires was subject to the same deceleration as the aircraft with the small tires?
