    My guess is some guys never look at SB’s. Others think it’s too much trouble and would rather wait until something shows up as a symptom. The reason I’m aware of it is that a good friend A&P owns a...

    Long shot, but you could have an exhaust valve hanging intermittently. Has the Lycoming valve guide SB been done ever? I think it’s recommended every 400 hrs.

    Agreed. It appears they have other airports here on LI as customers. I did once get an erroneous landing fee bill from FRG which is about 20 miles from me.

    I changed this post after I read the website of the company that sends the bills. Apparently it’s totally automated which guarantees a certain error level. More or less than human input? Who knows.
