    How interesting. So the “insurance demands it” seemingly doesn’t apply if the airplane is too heavy to move by hand. Hard to guess why it’s so important an issue with the 172s but not with the...

    Bob— back to the original problem. Maybe I missed it, but is there an explanation for towing the school airplanes out of their parking spots instead of taxiing out? Are they parked on a hill and...

    My old E model burns a half gph more than my ‘12 yet trues out at 175mph up at altitude. Yeah it’s cramped but fine for two people, or three with minimal bags. Nice airplane. Haven’t tried...

    This is the subject matter I couldn’t recall above. Thanks! I thought Schiff wrote about it but I guess it was someone else.

    SJ, I remember an article I read by Barry Schiff a few years back (I’ve googled but can’t find it now) discussing this very topic. He related some research done, based on an airspeed just slightly...

    My J16 is going on 11 years old. Am curious how you figured the CCA of your battery--did you use a newer style resistance tester? I bought one for my cars and am trying to figure out if it's...

    Gordon you are the smartest guy I know, but the 1930's are calling and they want their venturi back. Come and join me in the 1960s---put a vacuum pump on that bad boy. Then when the 1960s call you...

    Thanks for these Steve. The same thing happened with my 12 in approximately the same spot. We fabricated doublers that (hopefully) accomplish the same thing. I like your method. Will take some...

    For me Charlie, the best reason to change to Supercub gear is that you can remove the bungee truss thingies from underneath the seat. Then you can install a Supercub seat and slide it back if you're...

    Airline and business aviation are clearly overrepresented on the board. Those interests will vote as a bloc. And I would also ask---where's the congressional oversight? The DOT isn't Congress. We...

    I feel strongly against this for a number of reasons, but the one that hits home the most involves a simple comparison with Europe or Canada. How's the GA industry doing over there, at the level we...

    Thanks Web.

    Also, I just called the contact number of the 406test website. They said its proprietary and in the case of aircraft, only works for Artex ELTs.

    This has been an interesting thread. If I had easy enough access to an avionics shop and the test equipment such as Web's I would go there and derive great comfort from actual confirmation.

    I have been wondering about these for awhile. How does an airplane engine compare with a car engine in terms of compression / energy required to turn it over? I have no idea.

    Wouldn't it just be easier to take the airplane experimental and then do whatever you need to do for the fuel tanks? Won't you still have all the same limitations of a J-5 no matter what you do? ...
