Cessna landing light switch by [email protected]
I have a C-172B that has the dual landing lights in the wing. The first position on the pull-out light switch turns on only the taxi light (at least I assume it is for taxi as it is aimed so low) and the next position turns on both (landing and taxi). Does anyone know if there is a legal...

Audio panel observation/question by Mike Noel
I have a Garmin SL30 as my nav/com1 and a KY97A as my com2. My audio panel is a King something-or-another with (among others) MIC1, MIC2 and BOTH buttons. MIC1 and MIC2 are mutually exclusive and the BOTH switch works independently. When BOTH is off, MIC1 causes transmission and reception on...

Stop Making Sense by Bret Ludwig
Light aircraft are not a business tool. There is _no such thing_ as a rational purchase of a light airplane. It's a heinously expensive toy that will likely be a financial disaster no matter what. Don't go 95% broke buying an unfulfilling spam can. Buy what you want, which if you have anything but...

Lycoming O-360 ring gear by [email protected]
Hey all. Now that my holiday travels are over, I'm planning to do some maintenance to my Cherokee. The ring gear has gotten chewed up over time, and now will sometimes not disengage while the starter is rolling it over. Worn/broken teeth, etc. I was pretty sure it was a 122-tooth model, but...

IO540 baffle repair by Jim Burns
Last week I found the baffle on our left engine's #6 cylinder had broken the bracket off the bottom of the baffle. The bracket holds a long skinny tension/stabilizer rod between the #6 cylinder baffle and the #2 cylinder baffle. From what I can tell, the bracket simply needs to be rivited back on...

Prop Indexing by Mike Granby
Why are fixed-pitch props on PA-28s indexed to the 10-4 position from the front? a) To help hand propping? b) To minimize vibration? c) To improve performance? My money is on (a) but others disagree.

The big question by Prime
What I want to know is: If I want to have an airshow at my hotel, do I need a 337 to fix the plastic sign on my AOPA plane before or after I pay my taxes? Prime

Resource for choosing a plane? by Douglas Paterson
So, I've decided to go for my first airplane. As I get started looking for "the" airplane, I'm hoping I can find some help here in narrowing my choices. The more I look, the more overwhelmed I get. I'm starting to think that finding & buying the damn thing will be anticlimactic--deciding *what*...

Flight Cheetah FL 210 by O. Sami Saydjari
Does anyone have a PIREP on the Flight Cheetah FL210. We just got one, but it crashed on first use and I have been unable to raise anyone in technical support to explain how to get it up and running. It seems feature rich and all, but reception on first use was poor. How have other people's...

Followup, was: First time instrument failure while in IMC by Jack Allison
Well...it could have been water in the pitot system...and maybe not. After the shop removed the ASI then blew high pressure air through the system, everything works just fine. No identifiable debris from the system though. Before removing the ASI, blowing low pressure air through the system would...

Flying without FAA medical or insurance by Doodybutch
Last year, an acquaintance of mine turned 85 and stopped flying and sold his airplane. He just figured that he had done it long enough and he wasn't as sharp as he used to be. He flew a lot right up until he sold his plane and he was quite experienced. I suspect for private reasons that he had...

Bulb Replacement King KX-170B by Marco Leon
Hi all. One of the lights on my KX-170B is out (NAV side). Has anyone tried replacing this themselves or is it a technician-only task? If yes, then what bulb was used and where did you get one? Any other tips would be appreciated. Thanks, Marco Leon

GPS396 terrain warnings near airports by xyzzy
When I fly with my GPS396, I usually don't put in a flight plan or any direct-tos; I use the panel mounted KLN94 for that. I use the 396 just for weather, terrain, and additional situational awareness. I had never heard the spurious terrain warnings near airports that Dave Butler reported in...
