    First of all, the plane I'm flying is a Citabria, instead of a Cub, so my airspeeds are probably considerably higher than yours...

    Buddy of mine dearly loved his Rockwell Commander 114. He had lavished all kinds of time and attention on it, making it cosmetically perfect, and modifying it to perfectly suit him. The interior...

    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.

    The most fun-to-fly helicopter I've ever flown was the...

    If it's like most airplane locks, you probably could have used a rusty screwdriver to unlock it... Kinda like my John Deere tractor - any key for any JD since about 1950 will fit right in and turn...

    Hell, if I still weighed what I did in high school, I'd be proud of it, too! (Though my numbers would be a...

    I've owned a 7ECA with the O-200 for three years now. I bought it to have to fly while building the Bearhawk Patrol, and because it was light enough that I could fit my oversized butt and a 200-lb...

    Don't think there's much of a performance difference, but the fine wires are FAR more resistant to lead fouling, and should last easily 3X as long as the massive electrode plugs. There was a recent...
