    The hardest working Bravo in the US?

    My FlightAware history seems to have a 3-day delay. Regardless, I have no problem with family and friends snooping but it would be nice to block everyone else. It’s my understanding that some ADS-B transponders put out an anonymous aircraft identifier for GA ops. My NGT-9000 doesn’t seem to allow this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    M20K down in Spain

    This aircraft seemed to have an active flight history. Interesting track log for this flight - they did a large circle directly over large farm fields before heading directly for the mountains. Must have been IMC. RIP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Taxing around without any cowling installed

    I’ll be pulling it out by hand and then using the fan to move it around the building. I’ll make sure there aren’t any loose parts. I also always wondered if it was appropriate to “power” the plane directly out of the hangar - I guess it isn’t acceptable practice... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Works fine on my iPhone now. Bummer that it took so long. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Is this acceptable practice? I’m fixing on removing all of the cowling and then taxing it around my hangar building to the other side to my A&P’s hangar - about 100 yds of travel. I’m concerned that maybe the cowling has some sort of structural function. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Today's flight for 2018

    Tom I thought the airport was closed until next Tuesday. I was getting ready for departure last week to go there for a medical appointment and I just happened to see the NOTAM that both runways were closed! I'm guessing the shorter one is done now? I need to come out there next week again too. **EDIT** Disregard - I just read your prior comments. I've been away for away and haven't caught up yet!

    Nav light replacement bulb

    C’mon guys let’s consider the totality of the circumstances here. The Whelen LED nav or landing light bulbs are drop-in replacements. They clearly use less energy. They will almost last the lifetime of the aircraft. There is no way the FAA would dare fight this one.

    Got my renewal insurance quote today...

    Well this is obnoxious if Global decides to raise theirs too. Maybe it’s time to quote non-flying insurance instead now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. That’s not an inverter generator and its 25% heavier. Not bad though for a camper. I picked up a dual-fuel 4000 watt for my camper two months ago for $275 shipped to my door.
  10. Found a Sportsman brand 2200-watt inverter generator for $299 too: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Sportsman-2200-Watt-Gasoline-Powered-Recoil-Start-Portable-Digital-Inverter-Generator-with-Parallel-Capability-CARB-Approved/435994295 Found another 2200-watt on Wal-Mart.com's website for $236: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Tailgater-Camping-Special-Energy-Storm-ESi2000i-CA-California-Sales-Compliant-105cc-Gasoline-Powered-Inverter-Generator-light-weight-power-50-State-C/40333201#read-more
  11. ***I have no relation to the seller but this seems like a good deal*** I bid on eBay for a lot of four Regent Survival Systems RSS-303E Universal Life Preserver. I only paid $23 or so shipped and he sent me six of them. All are sealed and good until 2025. He has more auctions: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F222916239244 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Baggage Door Arm / Hinge

    Wait aren’t the hinges like $0.25 worth of stamped steel? If there is this much market demand I’ll have my own hinge assembly pulled off and replicated by the 100’s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. I noticed a smoother ride with my 3x blade after both of my magnetos were replaced (1100HRS or so since last IRAN). Something new it felt like riding in a helicopter before. I bet that mag timing was the biggest factor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
