    It seems to be documented reasonably well in the installation manual. My understanding is that the magnetometer is an optional device internal to the AV-30. The magnetometer usage options are...

    I recently had a long discussion with my IA about the scope of an AD on PA-28 wing spar inspection (2020-24-05). The AD calls out specific paragraphs of the Piper SB but my IA insisted all the SB...

    That's why I keep the early "unrepairable" KX-170B that I have. It even has proper all metal tuning knobs instead of the later plastic ones that split. It's a valuable source of parts, including...

    Bristol does make hex keys as well. Anyone's hex key with fit anyone else's hex screw but, if it's a Bristol spline screw, the tool choices are more limited. I'm sure we all improvise at times. I...

    Bristol spline is very different from Hex and an Allen key is not the proper tool. Bristol spline grub screws are used on some Bendix/King products such as the knobs on the KX-170B. Some of these...

    Doesn't happen with mine. Why can't you tighten the lap strap to prevent that?

    Off about 6 am on Saturday to head South to give a flight review. Cool enough to need a light jacket. It was 102 deg F soon after noon. I miss the winter already.

    I decoded my prop part number index as "0 and 180 degrees, non-counter bored holes, R flange". Earlier I posted an image of how the prop stopped.

    What is bothering me about this indexing...

    If 9-3 is one available position then 11-5 is possible but not 10-4. 6 bolt mounting only allows rotation in 60 degree (2 hour) increments. Doesn't the availability of the availability of 9-3...

    CubCafters four point inertia real shoulder harness work fine in my FX-3. I would, perhaps, prefer a 5 point harness but no immediate plans to change.

    With any harness the fit is more important...

    What is the condition at which this position is measured? Is it where the prop usually stops? I have not attempted to measure mine but I estimate it stops at 10-4. Trailblazer carbon CS prop on an...

    Well the problem with this check list is that it seems to allow flying with head stowed. I prefer:

    Cranium - extract from rectum
    Fly - like you stole it
    Land - like you own it

    I was away at the hangar and missed most of the action.
