WiFi at AirVenture (was:Does your airport WiFi?) by Dave Butler
On a related note: there was a thread here earlier about wireless access at Oshkosh. IIRC the sad conclusion was that there was no access very nearby. I wonder whether anyone has contacted EAA and requested that they get on the stick and provide WiFi on the North 40. Is there any chance EAA would...

will this fly? by Lee Elson
Please excuse the cross post, but the topic might be of interest to several groups. I'm wondering whether providing light aircraft transportation services (people and/or cargo) and consulting to small businesses is likely to be a successful approach to setting up a very small aviation business. In...

winch pull of plane into hanger by [email protected]
I am back to pulling the warrior back into the hanger with a winch. I tried modifying a small briggs and stratton powered "mule" to the cherokee towbar attachment but could not get the control I wanted. So now, I need the experience of anyone else who has rigged up a winch with extended control. ...

Wind/Solar Electrics ??? by RST Engineering
After much thought and ponderance, I've come to the conclusion that to electrify the hangar using Pacific Gas & Electricity (PG&E -- Pigs, Goats, and Elephants) isn't clever. By the time you get them to hang a meter ($5k), trench from the power pole to the end of the row of hangars, conduit romex...

Window seal by Hankal
Just installed new window seals in my Cessna 172. My AP was also involved to make sure they fit properly. Yesterday while at 5500 my wife (copilot) complained about a draft on her face. We determined it came front the front of the widow. I checked today and found a small gap which would let air...

Window trimming techniques by Jim Burns
While our prop is out for some work, we're putting new 1/4" LP Aero side windows in the Aztec. A couple of the windows need to be trimmed to fit properly. What methods have proved to be the most successful? Band saw? cut off wheel? Any others? We need to take about 1/4" to 3/8" off around two...

windows by [email protected]
Warrior Windows. A few weeks ago I asked if anyone has had any experience polishing out damage to plexiglas windows caused by a sloppy painter who got paint stripper on the plastic. No one has so I will answer my own question. No, the penetration is deep enough that the remedy will be...

Windshield cleaning by OSKI 3
I don't know how many folks I have talked to, do NOT know about. Bounty paper towels (MICROWAVE/COOKING). I have used these for 15 years and have not had to replace a windshield yet. These towels are specifically for Microwave use and have No metal recycled crap in them. A lot better than trying...

Windshield Haze by Kyle Boatright
I've noticed that the windscreen and canopy on my RV-6 has developed a haze on its exterior. The history of the canopy is that the canopy was manufactured about 7 years ago, with the airplane first flying about 5 years ago. The airplane has always been hangared (other than the occasional overnight...

Windshield replacement by Jim Burns
When we purchased our Aztec, one of the things that we promised to update/upgrade/replace was the two piece windshield with a new 1/4" one piece. This will raise our compass up and move our OAT gauge to the pilot's side window. Well, today it came and is sitting in my computer room. I've got the...

Windshield sealant by Mike Noel
I need to seal my plexiglass windshield in a few spots and happen to have some GE Silcone II sealant on hand. It is spec'd as low odor but releases methanol and ammonia as it cures. I have seen warnings against using regular silicone sealant since the acetic acid it releases can corrode aluminum,...

windshield wipers by tony roberts
When I was in flight school I asked why GA aircraft don't have windshield wipers and was told that it's because the prop blows the rain off - really - that's what they told me. Now I fly lots in rain. This past 2 weeks I have flown in more rain than I ever wanted to see - and the prop definitely...

Wing covering lifespan? by Michael Horowitz
Over the life of a fabric a/c, it will undoubtedly go thru owners that hanger it, others that tie it down. For the purposes of estimating the cost of said a/c, what is a generally accepted lifespan for a fabric coating? - Mike

Wing Covers Pro/Cons by TF
Just purchased my first plane and have it tied down. It has a canopy cover but no wing covers. Walking around the airport I only notice one other plane with wing covers. I would have thought wing covers would be good protection. During the wnter the rentals would have them to prevent frost...

Wing Root Fairing by Bob Noel
First impressions of adding Knot2U wing root fairings on my Cherokee 140: Nothing clearly different in the handling/performance of the plane. Of course, I hadn't flown the airplane since Nov 05 (surgery) so insert jokes about not remembering much here.. -- Bob Noel Looking for a sig the
