    Well, now I'm sorry that I asked family for the book and cards for my birthday back in Feb. They'll be obsolete before my plane is finished.

    Just a note that Rotax specifies using a pressure of 6 bar for testing, which equates to 87 psi. This is often missed by mechanics/operators who are used to the Lycoming and Continental world where...

    I don't mean to be critical -- you are of course free to accept sponsorships that make you money -- but since this is basically just a 12-minute advertisement for GoPro, shouldn't it be in the...

    Yes, I know. It was an attempt at humor. Apparently it didn't work.

    I only wish it were so. The beautiful winter days this year have been brutal! My neighbors (PA-12, PA-18 and two C-180s) blast off on flying adventures, while I'm left behind in my garage because...

    Apparently appearance wasn't one of the criteria in the Postal Service's RFQ. I think the Pontiac Aztek and Fiat Multipla just lost lost their shared crown as the ugliest vehicles ever made.
