    I dunno. I got my first airplane ride (client of my father's at Transcaribean) way before I could consider starting flight lessons. I didn't sit in another light plane until college (the...

    I've not got a hat from them. Even if they did, it probably wouldn't fit. Most of my Volunteer hats from EAA don't fit either.

    AOPA Forums History

    AOPA just announced due to "security reasons" that they are shutting down their forums in favor of facebook and their other site (which is even worse than the aborted Oshoksh365 thing). Of course,...

    Sam, those are only the specimen limitations. The limitations are what the inspector puts on your actual aircraft.

    The price isn't determined by the raw material as Randy says. In fact, that's not even how regular restaurants run. You price things so that you maximize your profit not based on any particular...

    Yeah, and I can tell you who they were marketing to. When our company sold, I'd often be in the CEO's office answering questions. He was all hot to trot on an Eclipse.

    Except while some of the ideas were spiffy, they still needed someone other than Jim to fix defects in the design.

    I liken it to when my in laws used to work for Hugo Gernsback. He'd come up...

    I wouldn't call it a "marketing disaster." It was a unqualified disaster. The real issue was not having engines available and the ensuing Bede bankruptcy. The design had significant aerodynamic...

    If this had been an actual formation flight, they'd have managed better (such is certainly *NOT* prohibited in the airshow). The problem was they were just two close together P-51's with inadequate...

    This is all part of the "no plane left behind" policy. By next year, the EAA wants to not turn away any aircraft (or at least...

    By private land, it means land the EAA bought I suspect, but yes, the ultralight runway is being moved across Knapp.

    There's never been a large number of SX300's at Oshkosh because there just weren't that many kits made. The existing ones are probably declining by attrition.

    Not many planes came to Oshkosh in...
