    When testing for certification what's typically the flight program? How do they determine limits like CG and control behavior? I assume those were Aviat's goals given the recorded flight history of...

    Yes. Which is why a rubber hose slowly rolled up to create pitot pressure is safe. If it won't hold pressure find the leak with soapy water sprayed on the tune and connections.

    +3" for skis and prop tip clearance - w/31's not so much. If I recall correctly from my former planes the +3" is gear leg length not the overall height change (is ~+1.5"). Plus it's a longer torque...

    Try soaking some Aerokroil or Mouse Milk on the valves. See if it makes any difference. Not a permanent fix however if a reamer is needed.
