    Eddie I have those seats in my 180 and have used them quite a bit. We used to put a car seat in the back seat and I felt like the car seat fit on the original seats better. Now, my wife rides back...

    I have two nav radios in my Cessna. I fly IFR but almost never use the nav radios. It’s all GPS. I suppose I keep them in case the GPS ever quit and I still wanted IFR capability.

    Even if there is a MOA where you want to fly, you do not need ATC permission to fly through it under VFR. Highly, highly recommended but not required.

    I would also recommend that you squawk 1200...

    Back in the day when I was flying C-130s during the Iraq war, comm was very difficult around the major bases because the Army put jammers on their vehicles to disrupt radio-detonated IEDs. I imagine...

    The other thing that this discussion brings to mind is the importance of flying these airplanes by feel more than by numbers. Climb out at 65 might work fine one day. On another day it might be way...

    I did know that there was a strip there but wasn't aware that it had it's own identifier. I suppose the reason it isn't on the chart is because it isn't public use. In that case I go back to my...

    Problem resolved. My IA forgot to plug the primer hole of the new cylinder. This caused the roughness. It also made the engine idle higher (800 instead of the 500 that had been normal) and reduced...
