  1. New Member Introduction

    I'll trade 1-for-1 rides! I have a J model based out of Ogden, and haven't been in a Citabria since my TW endorsement. I'll follow-up with a PM as well.
  2. Where to send magnetos for service?

    I had my dual-mag overhauled by Aircraft Accessories during the last annual. Approximately 30 hours later and no complaints...price was 'reasonable' compared to some other shops quoted.

    I would like to be added..
  4. New Listing

    I cannot agree more with this. My seller was outstanding thru the process. Six months after I bought my airplane he shipped a box of miscellaneous parts (oil filter, spark plug, personalized check list, hand-held mic) to me he found while cleaning his hangar. He could have just thrown them away....
  5. WTB Tachometer

    I put in a P-1000 about two months ago. Really impressed with it, easy to read and mag-checks are a no brainer. I know there is some discussion on this board about the RPM level where it starts 'timing' engine hours, but that was minimal in my decision. It may be a factor in yours.
  6. Why is this happening?

    I had no idea this was such a common issue. This should be accounted for on every price list of "how much does an airplane cost?". I had to do the kitchen first, by the way...but then got into a great '88 J.
  7. Density Altitude T/O Proceedures

    I would concur with Vance above. Run-up to 2000 RPM, lean to peak, then 1 turn rich on the knob. Forget summer, I took off from Evanston, WY last Saturday at 0730, OAT was 10C, DA 7900'
  8. New Mooney!

    Steve, Any chance you can send me the DXF file?
  9. Commercial or IR first (Will do both)?

    Thanks for all the replies. I don't know why, but I thought there would be less agreement on the issue.
  10. I'm curious on which one people feel gives a better understanding of your airplane. I have about 20 hours in my Mooney, and can't say that I'm 'comfortable' with it yet. Knowing that an instrument rating will help with 'precision' while a commercial rating pushes the pilot/airplane unit towards the edges of the envelope; which one would you conquer first? The current plan is to get both...but looking for input.
