Patrick Romano, who has posted several very good instructional videos in the the knowledge base on this website presented a GREAT program on back country landing approaches at the Montana Aviation Conference...
This is super exciting. The R409 I mean going into a SQ-12. A bad ass motor by ACE Performance. The cylinders are the obvious clue.
Patric thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge. I didn't see any advice on trim settings for a landing approach gone bad. In the almost 500 hours in the C180 with the Pponk engine I've never done a emergency go around. I'm very aware that a full power go around situation is going to produce
Picked these up about six years ago, seller had gotten them from a salvage but didn't know history. You can see the date of manufacture of the components in the pictures (1997/8). I intended to put them...
C170B Pilot sorry I didn't see your post. There is something weird in the Event section where the creator of the event can't see posts if logged in. I keep forgetting to check here while logged out. In answer to your question, no, you don't need to reserve a camping spot. See ya there. :-)
Hey all, I'm looking for a Lycoming O-540 core to use as the basis for my rebuild. Specifically, the B4B5 or close. Been poring over the salvage websites, Ebay, etc. The pickings are slim. I figure it's...
Under "Negotiating Terrain" could you cover the sources of energy, other than engine thrust, that we might utilize in mountain flying? Gravity thrust of altitude can be a useful backup to engine power if we take off toward lower terrain. Gravity thrust of altitude can also be used to prevent load
Looks like good weather coming for Sunday. I am thinking about running over to check out Day Break Sunday morning. I have not been there before, do I need to get prior permission from the owner to land there? Or is he ok with planes just stopping in?
Anyone want to meet up? Perhaps there is a good breakfast spot near there?
I have changed nothing, and for the last 15 hrs or so #1 cyl is getting hotter.
While in cruise EGTs rises to about about 1,600 and CHT rises above 380 then I enrichen it and open a bit cowl flaps to...
bbs428I'm just north of Webb City, Mo. Joplin regional airport (KJLN) is 15 min. away. Building in my 35x70 shop. Just have to finish a 67 mustang convertible that's sucking up floor space and sell it.
The 1994 Speedster was found 20 min. south of me. I pick it up in a few weeks. It's still new and mostly untouched.
I plan to install a 912is or uls. All depends how much I get out of the mustang and if I can actually write a check for the firewall forward without a melt down...! :)
