Is the R44 safer than the R22? by Capt. Doug
Wooduuuward wrote in message I read that the R44 sales have 'taken off'. From frequently browsing the FAA crash reports, the R22 is listed almost every other week there. The R44 is larger, faster and flys higher. Is it safer? i.e.: in the last month: there are four incidents listed for...

Ack! My ACK! by Fastglasair
"Well done, good and faithful servant" Mike, you handled this newsgroup "situation" admirablely in my opinion (no doubt not worth much here). This web board is in desperate need of a modicum of civility (a large dose is probably to much to ask). It goes way beyond normal or reasonable bantering...

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***...

welding rod by Del Rawlins
A while back I posted that after trying E70S-6 filler rod for TIG welding 4130 steel, that I preferred using S-2 although the S-6 worked fine. I had more parts to weld tonight, and at Bruce Frank's suggestion, I first sanded the copper coating off the rod and then wiped it with acetone. It made a...

Anyone still flying gyrocopters? by [email protected]
I flew helos in the Marines, and in the '60s put together a Benson kit. It logged about 220 hours with zero problems, including a highly idiotic trip from the CA coast to Catalina. In 1972, however, my wife-to-be insisted it go before the wedding bells. Are any of these still around? Henry

Powered Parachute Plans by MJC
A friend of mine has a power chute made by one of the most respected companies around. Still, he's crashed it 3 times now. If a well designed power chute is a handful, maybe you might want to reconsider making your own from scratch. Those things look innocent, but they _can_ bite you. MJC "Still...

Murphy Super Rebel: Where are they? by Tim Hickey
For five or six years now I have been waiting to see a number of Super Rebels on the flight line at OSH. But they never seem to show. Do any of you guys have any first hand information about that bird? It has my interest, but I want to wait and see how the real world evaluates it. I have read...

Missing OSH by Morgans
Well, I just got the news today, that I will have to undergo back fusion surgery, and will not be able to go to OSH this year. It breaks my heart, but I am looking forward to some relief of my pain. Drink one for me, gang! -- Jim in NC

Fairing question... by Tina Marie

War Stories: Good degreaser? by B2431
I've heard of them doing up to 150 octane (I don't know how that's chemically possible, but that's what they say) It's not based on the hydrocarbon octane anymore. Most automotive gas pumps have the formula decal. Dan, U. S. Air Force, retired

Airworthiness certification of an experimental by Ace Pilot
Where can I find a fairly detailed explanation of the airworthiness certification of an experimental aircraft? Specifically, I'd like to know if experimentals get certified in a class (land, sea, single engine, multi-engine) or just in category. I'm sure I'll have additional questions, which is why...
