    My Skywagon has a fuel step, a grab handle on top of the boot cowl, and a foot plate on the strut to maintain balance. It's the best fuel step arrangement I know of since it doesn't use the tire. In...

    The left side fuel step is an excellent add. My current gear uses long steps on both sides offset forward to serve as fuel steps on both sides. I prefer the fuel step. If I was doing Airframes gear...

    You mean air guides don't admit to operating their Cubs with unapproved mods on their wings? Who knew? ;)

    Atlee Dodge has long steps and fueling steps that clamp on. I haven't seen many Cubs with covered gear so I have no advice for slicing the fabric to install the clamps.

    Are we limited to airports? Fly around the valley a bit and look at 90% of the private strips. At Wolf Lake the prevailing wind is 45* from the primary and crosswind runways. And I've observed some...

    PS- if you find a used GDL39? No ADHRS, unless it's specifically a GDL39-3D. The current models in the -50 series all have ADHRS.

    The GDL will also provide ADHRS info. Synthetic vision becomes a useful screen. And if you carry a smart phone the Garmin Pilot app will make your phone as functional as your GPS.

    Narrow. Lined by tall trees. Vicious turbulence. Add a slick or loose surface for even more excitement. The same problems await you when taking off. We can make several attempts to land. We usually...

    Mounted 35s weigh 68# each. Talk about spin-up factor, but even at that it's no big deal. 26" Goodyears are a total non-event. In a crosswind tall tires add to the excitement. More height, more...
