    Wouldn’t, a check ride or dual in a 320 hp twin with retractable gear, constant speed prop and flaps qualify for HP. And complex sign off? Why an extra ride in a school,plane? Ron

    A&P payment

    Take the mechanic for a ride, if you find a problem, you can show it to him, instead of trying to tell him what is wrong. Most of the time, the shop may have the books done, but not the invoice. If you before the test flight, he will just add more for the problem, or??

    Ceiling vent clogged with??

    Something may be accessing the vent channel from inside your plane. Pull the panel down and inspect it. Also, there is a drain line to vent any water from the roof vent over board. Ron
  4. How did Don Maxwell sign off an annual with no prop logs? I know, they used to be in with the engine log books, but that was years ago. This could be a great aircraft, or a giant pile of parts waiting for many more dollars to be put into it? jmho

    Partial panel cover

    Chris. I looked for that piece and never found one, I reinforced it and it cracked again. Plane plastics has the pilot side, did not have the engine side though, check again, maybe now. Ron

    Basic med problem

    My basic med was completed by me personal Doctor. We went through the form, line by line. I was told that they did not have the color test, so She got creative, pointed to a poster and asked what colors I could see. I did the vision test in the hallway with the normal charts. When we had this completed, Her comment was, Is that all, "this was much easier than the Special Issuance crap that we were doing yearly. " I have Kaiser Medical Insurance and the Dr. and I have a 10 year business relationship, so we know each other well. My Special Issuance is for a Heart Attack 10 years ago, and Diabetes is developing. I had a solo vehicle accident and suffered physically from it, I am all better, She did not put any additional restrictions on me flying or driving. I pushed for additional tests, knowing a bad test result could cost me my drivers license and medical. All tests came back that "I was normal." My Dr. is not a fan of flying, Her father flew, and she did not enjoy it. Keep looking, Drs. are out there that will do this for us. I have heard that some local clinic type offices may do it also, the ones that do sports medicals, drivers license medical etc. Ron

    Twin Comanche- Partnership?

    Miller made highly modded Twinky's with IO360's, 200 hp, extended nose, wing baggage compartments etc. Some of these are turbo'ed also. Almost a twin Mooney. Looks like a nice plane. F. Lee Bailey also modded one. Was for sale for close to $500,000 years ago.

    Twin Comanche- Partnership?

    I think that the only time I had 2 engines when I did my training was take and occasional time. Get running right on 2 and the instructor is going to kill an engine. Do it again and again.
  11. I patched mine several times. I have done roofing and this reminds of putting henry's around roof jacks. After several repairs on a 47 year old plane, I had Advanced Aircraft in Troutdale do a complete strip and seal. Money was well spent. As a DIY guy myself, I would not do a strip and seal myself. Some things are better left to the professionals. Ron
  12. Lasar when I talked to Robert about a month ago, did not have a waiting time. Top Gun did tell me if I pushed hard, they could probably get it in earlier.

    IFR training

    Also You need to be able to fly without the autopilot, in case of failure, and just to monitor it for proper function. And yes, the autopilot helps a lot. You can even look down to study an approach plate without the plane wondering off.
  14. Also Try Lowens Mooney Salvage. (Lasar)
