"Speed" tape? by Jay Honeck
At Reno, all the Formula One and Sport class racers had every single non-aerodynamic gap covered with clear tape. Which got me to thinking, there are LOTS of non-aerodynamic gaps on my Pathfinder. The stuff looks like basic, clear packing tape. Anyone used this stuff? Is there any benefit at...

Best sunglasses for flying? by xyzzy
I miscalculated my health benefits. I expected to have to pay cash for my medical and for some diagnostic tests that I needed to have to get the medical, but my HMO ended up picking up all of it. So I have a signficant surplus in my healthcare flexible spending account that I must spend by the end...

Anyone want to talk me out of... by Jon Kraus
buying my first airplane? Better hurry because Monday we have the prebuy inspection to go thru. If that goes well then probably by the end of next week I'll be an airplane owner (co-owner actually). I have really gotten a lot out of this and the Mooney owners news and email groups. It appears...

AOPA financial support for Bush? by Mike Noel
A pilot friend mentioned an alleged conversation he had with Phil Boyer, the president of AOPA. Supposedly he asked if the AOPA would support either presidential candidate and was told that AOPA had already supported George W Bush through political contributions. I can find nothing to back up...

Repairing Fiberglass Wheel Pants, Part II by Jay Honeck
I stopped by the shop this morning, to see how the wheel pants were coming along. What a difference! All of the wowed-out holes have been backed with aluminum that has been riveted to the old fiberglass, and then fiberglassed and filled over and around. High stress areas have been reinforced, and...

In reading the "what oil do you use" thread, a question arose. What do the letters/numbers after the O 360 mean? There have been A2B, A3A,A4A,A4M,A1B6 And C1E6 listed. The curious want to know. Chuck

Garmin 430 VOR reception by Maik
Hi! I have a SL30 and a GNS 430 in my plane. They use the same antenna via a splitter. When I dial in the same VOR in both units the SL30 catches up the radials always between 20 and 50 nautical miles earlier than the GNS 430! (Altitude about 3000 ft, flat area) Is this normal? What is your...

Wax by zatatime
What type of wax do you use on your airplane? I'd like to stay away from the standard "carnuba" type waxes because its a royal pain to buff around all the rivets (its a Cherokee). Any one step polishes out there that don't require the second buffing step? This plane has not been waxed in at...

The cost of war by Jay Honeck
Do you even know what the definition of Fascism is? Do you realize how oxymoronic using the phrase "Islamo-Fascist" makes you appear? Actually, that wonderfully descriptive term was coined (or, at least, repeated here) by this group's very own Don Tabor, DDS. I think is quite nicely sums up...

ROP masking of engine problems by Roger Long
Word was just getting around about a year ago that it is possible to run some carbureted engines lean of peak. It was discovered that using carb heat would improve the mixture distribution. I had a lot of time early in the year to look into this because our O320 H2AD was apart due to premature...
