Bulb Replacement King KX-170B by Marco Leon
Hi all. One of the lights on my KX-170B is out (NAV side). Has anyone tried replacing this themselves or is it a technician-only task? If yes, then what bulb was used and where did you get one? Any other tips would be appreciated. Thanks, Marco Leon

GPS396 terrain warnings near airports by xyzzy
When I fly with my GPS396, I usually don't put in a flight plan or any direct-tos; I use the panel mounted KLN94 for that. I use the 396 just for weather, terrain, and additional situational awareness. I had never heard the spurious terrain warnings near airports that Dave Butler reported in...

Dawley Aviation PIREP, or: Atlas is BACK by Jay Honeck
We were grounded last week, after discovering a cracked exhaust pipe and rotted muffler baffles during routine maintenance. Amazingly, we discovered that Dawley Aviation (*the* exhaust repair station in the Midwest, and the place my A&P recommended) is located in Burlington, WI -- literally on the...

Garmin 480 versus 530 by Paul Tomblin
Our club is examining the question of putting one of these on one or two of our planes. I'm a big fan of the 480 based on what I've read, but the A&P who does all our work has disparaging things to say about them and really pushes the 430/530 based on reliability and also about how much easier the...

The Gyro House by Jonathan Goodish
Does anyone have experience with The Gyro House in Auburn, CA? I ordered two factory-new Sigma-Tek vac gyros from them recently, with air freight. When I ordered them, I mentioned repeatedly that I was looking for factory new gyros and preferred that the gyros be no more than 30-60 days old. The...

LASAR ignitions by Nathan Young
The left mag on my Cherokee went bad. For some time, I have been considering replacing the Bendix mags with the Unison Lasar system, so perhaps this is the time to do it. Is anyone on the NG flying with a LASAR ignition? If so, I would appreciate your comments. Have you experienced any quirks...

Wind/Solar Electrics ??? by RST Engineering
After much thought and ponderance, I've come to the conclusion that to electrify the hangar using Pacific Gas & Electricity (PG&E -- Pigs, Goats, and Elephants) isn't clever. By the time you get them to hang a meter ($5k), trench from the power pole to the end of the row of hangars, conduit romex...

GPS altitude discrepancies by Pablo
I've been using a Garmin GPS396 unit for a couple of months now. I am amazed at the accuracy of the elevation information. It always seems to be within a few feet of the listed airport's elevation, for example. I took it up in my old Cessna 170. The elevation at the airport was right on. At...

Disc brakes sticking by John Clonts
My brakes have been dragging ever since I got our Cessna 210 back from annual last month. They had replaced the pads and repacked the bearings. At first I thought it was just because of the new pads, and it should "wear in" after a few takeoffs/landings/taxis. But last night I jacked up each and...

toy question for a ique 3600a by N12477psf
Hey, I've had this 3600a for a while now and I'm pretty happy with it. I'm trying to figure out how to track a radial inbound. Getting a direct path to the VOR is so biggy but I'd like to get this to simulate a radial for me if possible. Anyone have any ideas?

Learning piston engine basics by [email protected]
Is there a good place on the web that describes the basics and terminology of piston engines? I understand the basic concepts, but some of the terms I read, like journals and bosses, etc., are a bit beyond me and I'd like to get a little bit better knowledge of the concepts. I'm definitely not...

Showing metal at 1,100 hours by Maule Driver
I've put over 1,000 of the 1,100 hours on this new O-360-C4f. Changed the oil religiously. I didn't baby the engine but didn't abuse it either. Always hangered etc. My last oil analysis showed a doubling of iron 47.9ppm to 101.0ppm with 36 hours on the oil. Everything else normal. We did the...
