  1. I am 6'2" tall. No problem with the leg room. The back seat is really (super) cramped. Pretty much just for carrying all your stuff. The Super 21 is current from the standpoint of speed and fuel consumption. Pretty amazing. Don't shy away from earlier models with the manual J bar. I love that KISS principle landing gear. Same goes the manual flaps. All in all I a really happy with the old girl. The one thing you must put in is a magneto booster. It has completely changed the airplane for me. Hope this helps.
  2. Currently in PG. Flying home to Kelowna tomorrow. Two hours wheels up to wheels down.
  3. Yep. Fly Rocky Mountain House and then on from there! Good spot. (can't imagine what our American Cousins are thinking reading this)
  4. GLJA, I've got to ask where in Alberta do you live? Sounds like a great spot! I'm just trying to get retired so I can do more hunting etc. I'm even happy just hunting swamp donkey! Gosh, this one way back in O3.
  5. Thanks for the honesty on that. Nonetheless a great photo. There is nothing like sheep hunting. Well, maybe goat. But it's great. Need to get in condition to do that again. When I did it more than 15 years ago I had to put on 10 pounds for the hunt. I've got that part already covered!
  6. Nice Full Curl. And on a bow. I have nothing but respect for that! I've gone for Dall before in North Western B.C.. What a great weight loss program!!!!
  7. Thanks Carusoam. Yes my CHT is always below 380. Usually around 340.
  8. Okay, but I don't want to burn a valve. So even if the temp isn't exact where "about" should it be? Ive been flying with EGT of around 1440 F.
  9. I only monitor EGT/CHT off one cylinder. Therefore run rich of peak. What is the ideal EGT/CHT? I find I'm richer that the book says.
  10. Sorry about the slow reply here. Hector has suggested something that I think has great merit. I will open the inspection panel and see if fuel is leaking along the main spar. A little fuel along a greater area would evaporate it without notice. Good suggestion!
  11. Thanks, all good things to look for. To answer a couple questions; the airplane is outside. It appears to have lost a gallon or more over a week. The fuel loss appears to be both tanks. Thing is I don't see any blue stains. On the airplane or ground.
  12. My fuel level slowly but most definitely goes down as the airplane sits. I've looked for a leak but have found no evidence. Suggestions?
  13. i have a Brittain system in my 64 M20E. Seems to work fine as long as there isn't a lot of crosswind to fight. I assume the vacuum system in the limiting factor. When the system is working well. I find myself flying with my hand on the trim to maintain altitude. So really you can't call it a true autopilot. It simply help maintain a heading.
  14. Carusoam; I'm located in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. In Canada a Night Rating is just that, a Rating. Looking forward to doing it. I would think a beacon is necessary in Canada. Our reg's usually ensure the most expensive possible rules.
