Certified logger altitude recording? by [email protected]
How do current certified loggers determine altitude? Being some are plumbed to external pitot/static and some are cockpit pressure only, what differences are expected? Does your mechanical altimeter (especially 57mm size) read close to your "glide caculator" altitude? Are loggers solely...

Pawnee air-oil bear strut pressure by Larry Ruggiero
Yes I know they’re problematic. Just returned our PA 25-235 from its annual, where one of ours was rebuilt (locked solid) and both serviced. Like I assume many of yours are, our Pawnee has no hopper and will never see gross weight again. So should the air side of the struts still be 575psi per...
