    The issue with skis that arenít certified is that both CAR 4 and CAR 3 require skis to be a ďcertified typeĒ. Under the CAR system, that was certified with a type certificate under CAR 15. Today,...

    That would only be if the engine is in the same configuration that it left the factory in. Lots of times, cases and other parts are overhauled and make their way to a different engine. Close review...

    Wide deck serial has the A, so it would get added, and since you changed the engine, I believe the C gets appended as well. I would need to read the SBs to be sure, but I think thatís how it should...

    I use FlyQ, not quite as many bells and whistles as foreflight, but less expensive, and if you are a CFI, great discounts on lifetime subscription.

    If you go with 6Ē wheels, the magnesium Grove will be the lightest. I just got a set of Airframes 6Ē wheels with double puck brakes, and they will add a little over 11 lbs compared to the 4Ē wheels....

    You can do that, but it still doesnít change the 20 lb baggage limit. Donít really see an advantage in making a bigger baggage compartment when still limited to 20 lbs.

    When I flew a King Air, I even did the loading with gear retracted and gear extended. Pretty easy to get out of the envelope when you have a long fuselage!

    I think they used datums ahead of the airplane so it was all positive numbers. I never had any issues multiplying positive and negative numbers together, it's like 7th grade math.

    I can't say about CA taxes, but most states get a listing of all the aircraft registered to an address in the state each month and will try and track you down. If you register it to the OR address,...

    There is only one forward point for the J3, I gave you that in a prior post.

    Your confusion is all based on the datum being used. The TCDS uses the wing leading edge. Everything aft of the LE has...

    I didn't look at the W&B sheet you had, but it all depends on the datum used. The TCDS uses the wing leading edge as the datum.
