    Seems to be under control now. But might get a second wave around July.

    The last pandemic was two years, 2009-2010. Gathering 650,000 from around the world might be a concern to the locals.
    I would vote for a bigger event in 2021 but with distancing rules if possible.

    That lack of transportation between Oshkosh and Milwaukee is why EAA should look at some options for the Airventure week.
    I wasted untold hours researching and finding a new bus service in 2019. I...
  5. That's why flying direct to Mikwaukee is the...

    That's why flying direct to Mikwaukee is the cheapest, fastest and best option for me from Seattle, and maybe most of the country.
    It's too bad EAA doesn't help much (or any) promote transportation...

    I don't think many can find a direct airline flight to Appleton. It usually takes an extra connection to Appleton (sometimes 4 hour wait) and many more hours to actually get to Airventure.

    Yeah, I think access gates is 24hrs if you have a wristband to show the gate volunteer. Access gates are everywhere but wristbands are not available at these locations.

    Airline to Milwaukee is much cheaper. Too bad there is no frequent bus service to Oshkosh during Airventure week.
    The Lamers morning only bus service is rather useless.
    I tried to use the new...

    Then I think EAA needs to bypass the FAA and go to a higher level, like Senator Inhofe, the President and others.
    It's supposed to be "We The People", not "We The Governed". You have my permission.

    If you have a wristband for several days or the weekly wristband then walk past the ticket office and enter at 5am or whatever.
    The action starts early.

    I think cold dry air in winter or airline cabins can compromise the body mucus defense and allows virus entry.

    A derelict is much easier to restore than a crash. I have done both and both have all the parts. I don't like to mess with one missing parts, however.
    Of course, I grew up in Alaska where everyone...

    The Equipment List is issued by Piper with the original Weight and Balance form and should be transferred with the aircraft papers. http://twisted-wrench.com/files/W_and_B_-_Equipment_List.pdf

    My "bivy tent" was $22 at Walmart.com. Weighs 3 pounds. I pack it up each day so it won't blow away. Works as a bivy sack if poles are not used for whatever reason (paved ramp)
    84" long. I prefer a...

    I caught a cold from the airline travel to Airventure in 2019. It wasn't a pleasant week. Then a second cold after the flight home.
    Didnt get a flight reservation for this year. It's getting to be...

    That's because the cost and hassle of General Aviation has exceeded the value.

    Restoring an airplane is mostly labor. If you do all the work with no concern for your time the cost of parts is minimal. Even an overhaul or partial engine repair can be done with a mechanic...

    I thought ADS-B could relay to other aircraft and then to ATC or something for mountain coverage without radar, like they did in Alaska.
  21. Why would the controller terminate radar service?...

    Why would the controller terminate radar service? ADS-B works where the radar doesn't.

    That operation was part 135 and was required to be VFR. How would a ground proximity warning system work for low level VFR?
    It would obviously be yelling "pull up... pull up... pull up for the...

    My plane was tied about 1/2 mile from the ocean for about 30 years. I don't see any difference with corrosion if it gets flown often.

    My variable pitch Hoffmann prop has fiber nuts. (1/2", I think.)
    I saw a charred wood prop that was loose.
