    There are some pretty clear requirements for registration numbers in the FAR. There's an AC explaining it as well. Reading through that, as long as your N number meets the requirements (3" Roman...

    Kind of a leap of faith for me. I've seen pictures but never an actual airplane. I love the looks, but really have no idea if it's going to be as ncie as I hope it will be. If not... bigger...

    If you want all wood, not welded steel fuselage and wood wings, your selection is somewhat limited. If you want two seats -- either tandem or side by side -- your selection is reduced even further. ...

    And fair warning: DOn't expect perfection. Even the best plans are not 100.0% complete and accurate. There is always something the builder will need to figure out. Always.

    I would second the recommendation in the other iteration of this discussion for Dawn, or some cheap shampoo - both with a soft bristle brush for washing cars. Both will cut oil, grease and grime...

    I saw that listing, actually. I'd have bit, if I didn't like sleeping indoors and staying married so much.

    The price of a "new family car" also covers a lot of ground. One model of 4-door sedan alone runs $16K to $40K depending on trim level. It's not even slightly difficult to spend well over that. ...

    With a few reservations. If you think of "middle class" being in the $40K to $122K income range, then "middle class" covers a whole lot of territory -- and of course income is less than half the...

    While a HE loan may be risky if you do it wrong, it it isn't the wrong answer in all cases. For example, if you have the assets, but you have money in investments earning you more than the loan...

    Airplane finance companies seem to be for people buying really, really expensive airplanes. If you're on a budget, you will very likely find much better options on your own. That was my experience....

    Are you talking about Great Plains Aircraft Supply (http://www.greatplainsas.com)? If so... the original owner died a few years back. I recall hearing that the company has changed hands once or...

    Easy peasy, Ron. Microswitch to disable it above whatever throttle position you want. We're not really talking about a complex system here; just a thermostatically controlled heater for the...

    Personally... if I were doing it, I'd think about an electric heater strip wrapped around the carb throat, with an automatic thermostatic control. Then you have carb heat, when it's needed, without...

    I think there are a number of one- and two-seat, electric multirotor aircraft under development. I saw a couple at Oshkosh two years ago, in fact, and have seen videos of a German-built...

    Sure, except that a substantial percentage of the traffic arriving won't be ADS-B equipped, and I'd bet a fair number will be using anonymous mode with no tail number. Then there are the guys who...
