Opinions on Cessna 340, 414 and 421 by john szpara
I'm considering buying a plane, and have decided to go with a twin. I understand that there will be more maintenance costs over a single, but I like the safety margin of the second engine. I also like the idea of pressurization, because we have some high mountains out here on the west coast. It...

Continental O-300 longevity by Mel
Can an 0-300 last a long time? I just bought into a C-172 with an O-300, approx 700 SMOH. It is down for an annual and we have discovered #2 and #4 cylinders have sticky valves. One of the valves will need to be replaced. Surely there is a time-tested set of techniques somewhere on how...

Any DA40 owners here ? Assume one flies 100-150 hours/year, how much is the annual cost associated with owning a new DA40 ? What about a 5-6 years 2nd hand one ? I don't own business and have no way of writting off any of the costs.

Aero Commander 100 Darter by Lou
Can anyone tell me why I keep seeing these planes selling for what seems like a great price? Every once in a while someone advertises this brand and model, but different planes for the same price as most Cessna 150's. Why? What is the problem with these planes? Lou

Continental E-225-4 question by Jim Carter[_1_]
TTE: 2135 SMOH: 1316 STOH: 16 I realize this is an OLD engine model that will probably have to be switched to an IO-470 or IO-520, but given these numbers and if it has had no really long periods of idle time, would you be worried beyond reasonable doubt about getting another 300 to...

Cessna 172N with 0-320-H2AD by Paul
I am looking for an a/c, my first, to complete my training and to use for recreational flying. I am looking at 172s and a book I recently acquired (The Cessna 172 by Bill Clarke) suggests that this engine is to be avoided. I saw an ad in Trade-A-Plane by Factory Engines and the prices for factory...

PA28: Difference in constant speed prop vs fixed pitch by Nathan Young
I have a PA28-180 with a fixed 60inch pitch prop. I have always wondered how much faster it would be if it had a constant speed prop. I'm hoping someone with a PA28-235 (which has a constant speed prop) could look up their speed for a reduced power setting, for example 57% which would correspond...
