King versus Icom by Paul
I have an older plane---1946. When it was time for a radio upgrade I bought a solid USA made product--- a King KY97A. I'm an A&P and was asked to install an Icom A200 in a friends Cherokee. Surprise they're the same radio!!! I thought the pin out and knob arrangement seemed familiar. Sure enough...

Bendix AD 76-07-12 by Jonathan Goodish
I have a Bendix starter switch installed in my PA-28-181, and as far as I can tell it is original. The aircraft was built in 1977 so it's close enough to the effective date of the AD to make me want to investigate whether the switch is affected by the AD or not. I read the AD and I cannot figure...

Removeable tie down stakes - recommendations by Maule Driver
Thanks for all the feedback to my 6/20 post where I asked for recommendations for portable tiedown stakes. I decided to buy "The Claw" from Hunting Solutions in Pearl MS.681-932-5832. The set received a good review in the latest issue of Aviation Consumer. It seemed to address most of the...

That's life... by Ross Richardson
Where else would one be happy to pay $65.00 for a used $15.00 part because Cessna wants $275.00 for a new one. (a rheostat to dim the instrument lights) If I had an experimental I could install that $15.00 part.

Early Bonanza or Apache? by Brinks
We've been out shopping for an early model Bonanza, and in the process I went and looked at an Apache that happened to be at the same airport as the Bo I was looking at. The guy selling it was thinking that the Apache was probably as inexpensive to own as the Bonanza. Here's his reasons: 1)...

insurance: vote with your $ by misha
How many of you would dare to own a new a/c without having a full hull value coverage? After being hit with a $15K premium with a $10K deductable, I have decided to vote with my hard earned cash against the outrage and to only get the mandatory liability and not-in-motion. After all, my...

Ack! My ACK! by MikeremlaP
Am wondering if there's a design flaw in the ACK E-01 ELT or just an anomaly? Our unit went off by itself today because the battery in the remote panel mount indicator died, triggering the ELT, and I'd like to know if anyone else has had this happen? If a dying battery in the remote ***always***...
