First plane by fred
I'm a newbie working on getting a PPL. People tell me that if I'm serious about flying, I should seriously look into purchasing a plane - in the long run it'll be cheaper than renting.

fluctuating ammeter, again by texas slacker
For two years I have chased the cause of the famous Cherokee Fluctuating Ammeter. Somewhere in here it became obvious that the problem was load related, ie turning off loads cured the problem for a time. This resulted in changing switches, loads and curses.

Hi Guys, I am in the market for a new hand held GPS. Looking at Garmin, Lowrance and AvMap, but just recently found the AnyWhere Map Software, with using a BlueTooth GPS and Dell Axim Pocket PC. To me it looks like a great combination of screen size, ease of use and "ugradebility". Cost...

Exhaust system on Cessna 172 by Ronnie
Just got the word from the A&P that the exhaust system on my 1976 M model 172 needs overhauling because of cracks and leaks. I'm compemplating replacing it with a Power Flow Systems tuned exhaust rather than having the stock OEM system overhauled. The A&P is guessing the overhaul cost will be...

Jeppesen database subscription for Garmin GNS530W / GNS430W WAAS GPS by jbskies
I just read about the GNS530W Pilot Guide. In page 3, it says: NOTE: The GNS 500W-series units use a different database than in the legacy units. The databases are incompatible between units. The GNS 500W-series units must use a WAAS enabled database. Can anyone who has...
