    It should be a simple approval, shouldn't it? Bigger and 40# heavier than 3000s but functionally the same. Get ready to have your CG on the forward limit or forward of it. You'll need ballast in the...

    If memory serves I have two friends whose former PA-12s used the Nelson STC. Does anyone know what mount they used? Did Nelson fabricate a mount for the STC? Finding the paper seems secondary to...

    Honestly I’m not concerned with top speed or drag from slats. After talking to several experienced slat guys I used Backcountry’s advice and mounted my slats flush with the bottom of the wing. With...

    The cooler doesn't block any air. There's a baffle behind the cooler to prevent air from going down in front of #5. The cooling of #5 comes from the pressure cowl doing it's job. Ram air to an...

    It'd be interesting to see how a Whirl Wind compares. You can try my 200A while it's off. Maybe not the best match for a 360, though.

    Like most businesses I'm struggling to find new hires. A buddy sums it up well. The guys you want are already working. The guys not working? You don't want to hire them.
