    I used to fly a 150 hp PA-12 with stock tail feathers. Elevator was a little heavy but not uncomfortable. I don’t remember what STC was used for the engine installation.

    14CFR43 Appendix E covers altimeter calibration. Every time you get your 91.411 and 91.413 check done, you should get a copy of the altimeter calibration error table. I can’t say I’ve ever seen an...

    I live just outside FDK. Don’t have an airplane available, but if you have one you need to be checked out in I could be available.

    I use TData Avant to do my AD searches. You can try using the RGL, but so many ADs reference manufacturers Service Bulletins, and without access to them you are dead in the water. There are a number...

    Recurrent airworthiness I’d done by a DART (FSDO) initial airworthiness is done by DARF (MIDO). If the initial airworthiness has already been done, then the conformity is having anA&P do a 100 hr...
  12. Transport Canada version of FAA Registration Branch?

    Unless it went to the Canadian military, it should have an Export C of A from the US. A Recurrent Certification is much easier than an Original. As for TCCA keeping records like FAA AFS-750, I don’t...

    The biggest issue, assuming that it was US manufactured, and you are bringing it back to the US will be if they have a copy of the original US Export Airworthiness Certificate. That document is key...

    I think the issue here is, yes you can tow with a 105 special with the O235. Can it be done efficiently? Not really! A 150 SuperCub from close to sea level can do about 6 rows an hour to 2000’ ago. A...

    Skywagon, I have little faith in the current stock of FAA inspectors and engineers. Each time the ACO assigns me a new advisor, I have to educate them that CAR 4A and CAR 4 predate CAR 3. Since my...

    I towed for many years with a PA-18A-150 with a 150 engine. We had a club that had 2-33s, an Lark IS28B2, lots of glass gliders. The Super Cub worked well for all of them. Our stanby tow plane was a...

    I've seen 65HP J3s tow gliders. Not very well, and a light glider, but they can tow. A PA-18-105 Special should do OK as long as it is sea level and with modest weight gliders, perhaps nothing more...

    CAR 4 allows uncertified propellers on “light airplanes”. CAR4 also defines “light Airplane as being under 1000 lbs gross weight. So, given that, CAR 4 would require a certified prop on a J3.
