    First, the term “missing logs” can imply different things. Is one entire logbook (as in “logbook number three of five”) missing, or is there simply a GAP in time where no logbook entries were made?...

    As Stewart implied, there is simply no direct substitute for Bushwheels.

    The 10 x 10 wheel is approved for 8.50 x 10 or 29 x 11 x 10 tires on the stc. The Desser smooth tire is listed as a “29 x 11 x 10” tire. To me, that constitutes approval. The fact that Desser says...

    Actually, those floats will fly out of the water nicely at 3800. I flew 185s at 3350 on late PeeKay 3500s, and EDO 3430s out of the Fairbanks float pond. Then I was handed the keys to an IO 550 206...
