    We hear this often from planes in the pattern at mountain strips. Pilots either forget to lean or insist on full rich at high DAs.

    Check all grounds associated with the system. Weird problems like this often due to grounding, and here you’re switching grounded leads on and off.

    Most likely calling over Jackson Peak (there's a fire lookout there), a few miles southwest of Warm Springs airstrip. Hope he made it.

    Same in the paperwork that came with my adapter, but I noticed that the latest version of installation instructions dropped the text explicitly requiring Champion. Maybe this was to allow Tempest?

    I think it's been mentioned elsewhere, but if you're looking for breakfast on Sunday morning, the IAA is holding the annual Father's Day breakfast at Garden Valley (U88 ), 7:30 to 10:30

    May and June have been cool and wet.

    I'd bring some skeeter spray (although we had no skeeters at Big Creek this week).

    Importantly: do tick checks early and often. They're rampant this year.

    Flight Aware shows N101DQ flying from Bozeman to Atlanta on May 12, departed at 3:05 MT. Looks like the track is credible.

    Can't speak to the PA12, but on my PA 18, adding VGs and big tires made it virtually impossible to get into a 3-point attitude at VG-assisted touchdown speeds. Adding an elevator gap seal fixed it. ...

    Is your point that the prop is indexed at 9-3, rather than the typical 10-4?

    We have the same indexing on an O-360 in an RV4 with a constant speed Whirlwind prop. The WW prop manual says to index...

    There is a lot of discussion above of the FAA definition of "established airport". Apparently, there isn't one. Is there an FAA (not MTV) document or interpretation that uses "established airport"?
