Another AirBus-320 question by pintlar
I have seen reported that the AirBus-320 has a glide ratio of 1:15. That was what our pilots told us the wings on Cessna 180-182 (L-19)'s glide ratio was. It does not seem consistent that a swept, thin airfoil, wing would have the same glide ratio as the Cessna. It is correct the AB-320 has a...

Building Airplanes... by Richard[_8_]
I've been sailing now for 5 or 6 years. Boats are fun, and the girls come along! But I've been getting the itch to build another flying machine. Maybe the YB-1 Stealth Biplane? Or a WW-I sorta replica. One more time? Before I'm too old to cut the aluminum?

RV7 and GNS430W by StephenW
Hello, I am planning to install a GNS430W with CDI (GAR GI-106A). My question is, is there a switch that needs to also be installed to select the mode of the CDI? From LOC/GS to GPS. Or is this included in the GNS430W? Thanks

Nice static port for RVs and other homebuilts by Bug Dout
I'm building an RV-9A and finally installed the static ports today. Vans provides a pair, one for each fuselage side, made from a couple of pull rivits: Remove the stem and voila, instant static port. They seem to work well but nobody likes the look. SafeAir provides a nice kit with CNC machined...

I picked up an old Narco Com IIA radio. I'd like to wire it up at home in the garage so I can listen to the traffic and approach control flying overhead. I've searched the internet high and low looking for documentation that would identify the connections on the back. I can't find any, not...

Experiences with vendors by Bug Dout
Van's Air Force (VAF) is probably the largest homebuilding site on the Web. But it's devoted to Vans Aircraft homebuilts (the RV series). Worse--for the purpose of this post--it actively deletes negative posts about vendors. So you get all the praises of good vendors, but negative comments are...

Group Activity by Wayne Paul
I have been off this group for over a year. Previously this was a very active group; however, there has been very few messages since I returned. It may be due to my service provider, or maybe with the passing of a few key members the overall activity has significantly diminished. The main...

Any cool new amphibs at OSH? by GuppyPilot[_2_]

Filament wound airfoils. (again) by [email protected]
Howdy, I was channel surfing the other day, and caught a glimpse of how they make rotor blades for the Hind MI-8 helicopter on RT. (Russian News) Very Interesting. They use small sections of metal (aluminum?) honeycomb cut to the shape of the airfoil, align it them with the spar on the leading and...
