    If I don't have to worry about corrosion I am not too worried about it.

    But if you have an...

    Are there any VW engine pilots/builders/mechanics around Atlanta (I sleep in the Class B of ATL) willing to talk me through the VW airplane engines, and possible share some knowledge in person?

    I have sleep apnea and a 3rd class. The important question is, are you being treated for sleep apnea. For me, all I had to do was show my treatment records and a note from a doctor saying that I...

    This. In my eyes, every year you apply for a new medical, is another chance for the FAA to deny it. The first time you encounter a tough medical, switch to BasicMed, then if you no longer qualify...

    I would love to find plans for the DA-11, but my research suggests plans were never sold. What similar all-metal, high speed (90+ kt), low operating cost single seaters would be comparable to the...

    What can be done on a LODA?

    I have been reading a lot about EAB airplanes recently, with the long term intention of building my own. One of the subjects that I find confusing is the LODA (Letter of Deviation Authority).

  13. How long did it take you to define your "mission"?

    I am in the process of finishing my PPL, with around 80 hours. After I finish my PPL, I plan to go for my instrument and commercial.

    I'm 31, and only recently have I come to realize that 12 year...
  14. Where to find information about the Zenith 601HD?

    The Zenith Builder Forums are closed to anyone who is not building or currently owns a Zenith, and zenithowner.com does not appear to have much activity, so I am looking for alternatives.

    I am...

    The CX-5 is specifically designed around an 85HP Revmaster, that is why I specifically mentioned that one. But I would consider any VW if it had advantages over the Revmaster. (I do not plan on...
  16. VW Aircraft engines - Tell me about your experiences

    I think I have found the airplane I want to build, but what is keeping me from pulling the trigger is the engine.

    After a bit of reading, no plane has caught my attention like the Thatcher CX-5. ...

    I would wait, but there is some risk.

    The only thing that I could predict to cause the price of ADS-B to go up would be Garmin successfully getting an injunction against uAvionics. The odds of...

    Thanks for all of the help, after some time to think about it, my complex dreams will have to wait a few years. Its back to looking for a good Grumman AA1/A/B/C.
  22. Is this a terrible mistake? Buying a dream plane as a first plane.

    I may have a chance to buy a dream plane as my first plane, but I am worried that I'm not viewing this objectively.
