Lark life extension by lanebush
I am researching the IS28B2 Lark for our club. From what I can tell these aircraft reach their life limit around 2014. Am I correct in this deduction? The info is pretty scarce. In fact I can not find a copy of EO-24 anywhere on the web. If this is true, is everyone planning to convert to...

Hello: I realise there is no data in N. America yet, (put on a Jamaican accent: "soon come, man!") but has anyone developed a logger which uses FLARM data to generate a tow sheet for club or commercial glider operations? One tech I knew was working on this a few years ago before family...
