    Those guys aren’t who they are because they’re successful, they’re successful because of who they are. Big difference.

    Those ribs and slats are incredible.

    Not a YouTube watcher but this clip got my attention. Interesting that flap and slat actuation is connected. The next big thing? Time will tell but nobody will know until somebody dreams it up and...

    I wonder how the wing loading and power loading compare to an average Cub? Probably closer than not. I hope he enjoys it.

    I don't see anything to criticize. It isn't my cup of tea but I have great respect for the imagination and determination it took to be sitting where it is today. I'm sure there were failures and...

    Scrappy at OshKosh?

    I read on another forum that Mike Patey and Scrappy arrived at Osh yesterday. Is that true? Is it flying? Has anything been said about what it weighs? I'm not a Youtube follower so I don't stay up to...

    The application states what browsers are supported. Chrome is one of them. The only hitch in the process was that the N number needed to be selected from their drop-down. From there the rest of the...

    When I got a ferry permit last year this policy was in place but when I called FSDO they were willing to adapt the process between the form and the phone. Being a creature of habit I called to do it...

    Ferry Permits 2021

    I said I’d provide a pirep so here it is. I filed the new electronic request for a special flight permit at about 2:00 today and by 4:00 I had an email from FSDO saying I need to add a copy of a...

    To help you with the reluctance about a homebuilt? The airframe, spars, ribs, pulleys, cables, wires, etc on the Legend are 12 years old. Many parts of a J-3 may be approaching 80 years old. Legend...

    Don’t fear experimental. A factory built Legend or Sport Cub is newer and safer than 99% of the equivalent original Cubs you’ll find. A properly assembled homebuilt kit plane is right there as well....

    4-place Supercub would be choice #1. Not cheap but nothing worth having is. Aeronca Sedans work well but for teaching? No flaps. You’ll get some resistance to that. And they’re old. Guys that can fly...

    Exhaust leaks leave streaks of gray-white soot but nothing clumpy. Lots of guys use a dab of RTV to hold exhaust gaskets in place for assembly. I don’t but I know good mechanics that do. I prefer...

    It sounds like your declared value got their attention. When I insured my -12 a couple of years before yours they never batted an eye, but my value reflected market value, not my actual cost....

    If you use a plastic container, or ANY collection container, choose one with a standard bung and wrap a rag around the bung-drain hose to keep fumes in the container. They’ll be too rich to ignite.
