    So if I’m headed at something I don’t like, how is going in backwards going to help? Better braking? Not trying to be a smart aleck, just curious for what I’m missing. Thanks

    Forgive my ignorance here, but could someone enlighten me as to how quickly one of those heaters as stewartb posted would warm an engine from say 0* to say 30-40*F ?? I’m wrestling with the flame vs...

    My wife was pregnant with our first when I learned to fly. Doc didn’t quite know how to respond when we asked all the ‘noise’ questions, but did a little homework. I don’t remember when our ears...

    Probably tight, as I have a Stinson and a NorthStar in 50x40. Very hard to get around.

    As a reference, my hangar is 50’ wide and 40’ deep. Two planes will just barely fit. Stinson and NorthStar. I don’t think they would without the extra width.

    Funny thing - had an instructor type state that if your plane didn’t posses a beacon, it had to have strobes. And apparently they had to be on. I still don’t know if that’s accurate. So another...

    I agree with KJC. My plane is a NorthStar, and it doesn’t have the spring assistance on the elevator. It’s heavy all the time while landing, but it still works as designed.

    Are you saying you can’t arrest your descent at all? Or that you’ve run out of elevator authority? Cause a three point done right is ‘out of elevator’ also. Just needs to be at 6” height or so. No...

    So this isn’t worth the electrons it took to read, but I lean from the second it’s running. I richen it up to do my checks, but the first ‘check’ for me is to re-lean it to rpm drop. Then start my...

    As to KevinJ’s point - there is likely to be a diminished test ‘pilot’ pool. Could halt the process all together!

    Much like when you show up in court to discuss your ticket the nice officer wrote for driving ’insert your favorite offense’.
    Mostly formality because the officer is always right.

    I too use an ‘unofficial’ rwy next to the paved one. A bit different than most - our airport isn’t terribly busy except for a flight school. I spend a lot of time with a shovel. I have a very...

    Please do! I’m intrigued with this as I first installed the ASA separator. It helped with the wipe-up, but hasn’t totally eliminated it. (Lyc-0360 that doesn’t like anything above 6 qts).

    ^^^^^I went to the webpage and then their menu. Look up downloads, and you can get their schematic. Short answer is - yes.

    Having zero experience with bears, and wishing to keep it that way, those of you who have: will the sound of a gun going off close range have any effect on them? Such as in an encounter?
