    For us in rural Alska, as Mark says, it is going to be an insane improvement. Like 100 times faster, or more. And less that 1/4 the cost, if cost is as they claim it will be.

    Yes, that would be nice. But OAS seems to have fully transitioned to only super-duper-certificated airplanes and processes. They will not consider anything that is not fully documented via STC at...

    That seems like a lot of work to salvage a $30 part instead of just replacing it. Somebody glued and taped a broken wing bow when they recovered my wings. I got to replace it a few years ago when it...

    Depends on the floats and water rudders. The Aerocet floats have small water rudders that are completely inadequate to manage once the wind starts gettting above 25 knots. A bunch of the private...

    Might need to clean primer nozzle. Sounds like primer is not actually getting sufficient fuel into the cylinder.

    Kansas City Area alert

    I am headed down to visit my jet pilot brother the week of April 27. Even though he flies jets, he still remembers how to fly. He taught me to fly when I bought an airplane, and a couple summers ago,...

    I will also add, have never flown a beaver without the tip tanks. Didn't know they existed. We don't use our tip tanks too often, but it is a huge bonus to have the option to do so.

    There are operators who swear by the upper air induction for float operations on beavers because water spray does not get pushed in there. However, I can tell you that I fly a float-equipped beaver...

    That looks like a great plane, Steve. With that engine and the older model, it is going to have some fuel limitations, I assume? Seems like those older models perform great, and I love the manual...

    They had already been through that when I started flying them, and apparently they grounded them all and then swapped out for a different carburetor. Whatever that carb is, it has apparently worked,...

    Useful load on floats is always the issue for training. It is a lot easier to make the training profile work with a 2000lb PA18 than with a PA12. At least that is my impression from poking through...

    Every pilot has to answer liability questions for themselves. For me, I got the insurance and I train people so long as their airplane is airworthy.
