    One of my PPG buddies had "HI FLYR" as his license plate. I've also seen "PPGER". I got my last medical from a doc whose plate is "FAA AME".

    My Hatz is safe, I think it's pretty cool, but "practical transportation" it certainly is not. But if I was looking for practical transportation I wouldn't be looking at a 152 either.

    The old "control zone" became class D airspace. Class E surface airspace just extends the cloud and visibility requirements to the surface, instead of the looser requirements of class G.

    I too used an Icom (A24) with headset and stick mounted PTT in two airplanes. In my current plane I'm using a Becker 2301 (mounts in a 2" hole) that I bought used on eBay.

    If it's GPS derived, it's not airspeed at all, it's groundspeed. As melann pointed out 91.205 doesn't apply to experimentals so it's not actually required, but you really do want a real airspeed...

    What I meant is that the smaller pulley is counterbored so the flange sits inside the pulley. That counterbore (or so it appears) is already larger than the required taper for the larger hub, if so...
