    Taking the thread a little off topic but I loved the way those 4000's step turned. Felt like you were sitting in your Lazy Boy back home. My CAP's are scarry.

    FAA GA Survey Notices

    I receive these in the mail every year for each aircraft I have registered. I was wondering if the FAA sends these out to every registered aircraft owner or just a sampling, and how many people...

    Back in the 90's I flew a 206 down to Wipline for refurbishing, installation of their copilot door, 4000 amphibs and an IO-550. They told me during flight testing they were able to get their testbed...

    It's also, very noticeable in takeoff distance on floats. And, as you point out, even more noticeable when you're heavy. Haven't tried it but I bet it would fly hundreds of pounds over gross where I...

    They want you to believe it's due to their incompetence. Most of the time it is, but they purposely built that incompetence into the system. It's intentional.

    One of their many "tricks". Three steps backwards, a half step forward (required by an act of Congress). Care to guess how many FAA "working groups" worked on this revised requirement?

    Four year is lightning speed for the FAA. Making thing onerous on users is their intention, especially GA. There is no culpability or responsibility, and they even have many internal "processes" to...

    Was this engine run with a digital six-cylinder EGT/CHT monitor system of some kind or the typical single probe EGT/CHT with an almost impossible to read analog gauge? You think at $11.50 a gallon...

    Hate to have to argue that one in front of an NTSB Judge. Not saying you're wrong. Court doesn't decide right or wrong, it decides guilty or not guilty.

    It's basically not possible for the oil to be "coming" from your muffler without some serious other symptoms. You probably have an oil leak that is working its way to the shroud.

    Anyone ever use those sheet metal dimples similar to the Cessna 170/O-360 Doyne conversion to allow for the added width of the O-360? Probably a little cleaner look than pounding out a dimple.

    You'll find the old A/J exhaust too restrictive for any of the 520 engines. You'll need to open it up to help the engine breathe.

    I've seen that same exact condition occur in an O-470 Continental. Turned out to be a loose carburetor temperature above the venturi of the carb.
