Aviation applications for the Droid phone by Bob
I am thinking about a Droid phone update. Are there any aviation applications available for it? I suppose I could access airnav.com or aeroplanner, but there might be something already customized. You people that have one, comments? Bob

Piper yoke pin SB by Mike Noel
I took a quick look at the pin in the forward shaft that connects the u-joint to the t-bar in my 74 Archer. Unfortunately there is no witness hole, so the pin will be pulled to check for the pin to shaft end distance. Has anyone found a witness hole in the shaft? I'm guessing that at some...

Zenith Zodiac 601XL by Mike Noel

Piper Arrow Shoulder Belt Tensioner by John T[_8_]
My partner and I are having a discussion about how the original pilot's shoulder belt tensioner is supposed to work in our 1978 Arrow III. Currently, it always applies tension, which bothers him a bit during long flights. He thinks it should latch or ratchet so that once it finds a position,...

Grumman AA5 series....facts versus fiction question by pgonzalez52
Hi folks, I was in the process of purchasing an AA-5A cheetah this week and spoke with the owner about it. Pictures looked good and the specs were reasonable for the price. Then I inquire about damage and use. NDH, great. But then came the bombshell. I asked and he said that he sees around 112-115...

Cessna 150 Door Latch. by brian whatcott
The exterior door latch paddle is spring loaded to close - it opens in the "suicide" i.e. blow open direction. The two coil springs holding the paddle closed were made of regular steel, so they corrode and finally break. Stainless springs are better. It is a regular performance to remove the...

Has anyone here done this? I am considering the acquisition of a C175a with a runout engine and replacing the engine with an O-300 engine. Is there a kit for doing this? Does the engine mount have to be replaced? I am guessing the airframe is just a C172 airframe. Am I wrong? Does the cowling...

Full-throttle Take Off in Mooney M20J by Evan Salant
I have read conflicting recommendations for take-off power in a M20J. Some people seem to suggest that it's best to reduce MP/RPM to 25/2500 after 500 feet, while others suggest full throttle/2600 until cruise altitude reached. Any thoughts ?
