    I walked the tie down area at the Aviat plant Sunday, after breakfast across the street, probably saw that particular plane. When I saw the picture, that terrain looked real familiar. Good on the...

    Like looking for landing areas near where I can get mogas, avoiding pavement is a complicating factor in my flying too, as I like babying my Airsreaks. I have embraced these two factors though, as...

    With my 29" Airstreaks, and my wheel skis, I deal with this every spring and fall. Before I discovered the "round rod thru the bearing hole, and tap the rim half and it will fall right out" method, I...

    I made a few years ago, none since, as the state of the art, multiple cameras as you say, maybe a drone also, sound tracks, and fancy editing make it beyond what I want to mess with. I am thankful...

    I came up with my setup for my particular needs, though only in the lower 48. I burn mogas exclusively, so I can't land at the nearest airport and taxi up to the fuel island and just swipe my credit...

    And way better resale value/appreciation.
    I never thought, years ago, it would piss me off, to be referred to as rich!

    I stole the 12 VDC air compressor out of my Prius ( don't laugh, last fill-up was 58+ mpg) and bought a large patch kit from NAPA (BIG patches). 10 ounces, all up.

    When asked how much my experimental RANS S-7S costs, by non pilots, I tell them, "about what a new pickup costs." I've been using that benchmark for over 20 years and it's still accurate. Both...

    I see no real speed difference between taking the 29" Airstreaks off, and putting the Datum's on, slow as ever.

    Nothing like talking ski flying, when it's going to hit mid 90's here today!
