    Usually got sloshed out with water & dishwashing detergent,

    Insurance is wierd.
    When I got my first taildragger (C170), I had maybe 300 hours in C150s & 152s.
    So they wanted me to get a 5 hour 170 checkout.
    No problem, I was (sort of) safe after those 5...

    All (but one) of the airline guys I know are GA pilots, who fly a lot--

    About 15 years ago, Maule introduced their M4-180V--
    a round-tailed, 2 seat (side by side) taildragger.

    A few years ago, I noticed a kind of ticking sound in my 180.
    Eventually I looked up into the (dual) exhausts--
