    Non-owned (renters) coverage isn't usually tied to any particular aircraft. It just states a maximum value of coverage and that you have to have no interest in the plane.

    My wife had the N number on her plates. Why she asked? What was your plate # before (no idea). What is it now? She also had a "I'd rather be flying my Navion" frame.

    Eh, what USN markings on the mags? The data plates and part numbers look to be standard (for the era) Bendix (commercial) parts. As I said, looks like Lawrance, but I don't see anything in google...

    Eh? Which of the Power of the Past pictures is supposed to match this. The Lawrance 2cyls come close but none of the ones pictured have the same kind of case.

    Worth the risk of what? Risk of death of the crew? They chose to do so. Risk of loss of the airframe? I'm of the mind of Scott Crossfield: "Put one in a museum and recycle the rest into...

    An SF2 mag fits with the two cylinder engine. Do you see mounting pads on the engine for them.

    Nope, but given two cyls and the odd crank fitting, I'm guessing it's an APU part.

    OK, you've got a marginal amount of fuel to make the legs involved. The longest leg is going to be right at 500nm. At 110 knots, you are going to suffer a lot in a headwind.

    I'm not reading that he wants to fly the Sinus from France to here, just that he wants to fly at Airventure (either in another plane or have his transported by other means). Perhaps if the snipes...

    Yep, miisses a good chunk of HBC/HBP in addition to the south VAC/GAC areas. It also doesn't cover the new rotorcraft area.

    The med support outside the forum was counterproductive to me. Eh? Their forums are more active than this board. The major difference is you never see an AOPA staffer on the boards there. ...

    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.

    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.
