    Fabric Life and Recover- So confused.

    Think about buying a car, the day it leaves the dealers lot, it takes a huge depreciation hit, then the value declines much more slowly as it is used. At some point that car has a number of major...

    A good inspector should be able to give you an idea of overall condition, but there are areas that you cant see without removing the fabric. I would never give top dollar for an airplane with 35 year...

    Just a quick look at the number of ADs issued on a given design can be a clue to the robustness of the design. Compare either PA-18s, PA-20s, and PA-22s to PA-28s. I think you could add all the ADs...

    First time buyer. Help/Prebuy?

    As an A&P, I would never sign off on a pre buy inspection. For starters, there is no such thing legally. The FAA only recognizes Annual Inspections, 100 hour inspections (both are the same except for...

    Registration does not include the “X”, that is only permitted to be displayed per 14CFR45.22. I’m surprised that the GDL-82 let you input an NX as the registration. That should have caused a red flag...

  17. Determining Best Glide Airspeed for Your Super Cub

    It’s really pretty simple, min sink speed is Vx, best glide is Vy. That being said, best glide will never result in going the farthest distance. For that, you need to understand “speed to fly”. If...
