  • geekxx created a new forum topic Carbon Cub in Seattle?
    So, I think I've decided to sell my 1/2 share of a Mooney and get a real airplane. The Mooney (M20K 252, with Encore upgrade), is an absolutely wonderful airplane, and served me well when I was commuting...

  • Some random thoughts: I think anyone who has flown "within" the mountains has been delighted by a different, up close and personal, perspective. For the uninitiated, it can be pretty daunting and intimidating--or as a friend of mine (a relatively low time private pilot) said the first time I took

    Yesterday was a damn perfect day to fly, so I headed up to New Hampster to hit Alton Bay. The community owes a huge debt to the volunteers that keep the runway open. Was a fantastic day of flying... 120969737
  • premium ethanol free mogas in the 8.5:1 experimental io360d on a 1 hour test flight in level cruise at 24 squared full throttle at 5000ft, switching tanks to the mogas yields about a 10 degree increase in egt and zero notable increase in cht.
    I'm confused as to why vapor lock would be an issue unless it's 100 degrees in Texas at high altitudes, or after shut down on the ground.?

Full flaps trim, which I also used on all approaches, was the same as cruise trim in Cessnas and I didn't make long climbs or descents anyway. Pipers don't work out as well but have smaller flaps. The mai

  • I actually fly my approaches at neutral trim and just muscle my way through the approach. That is pretty close to takeoff trim in most planes and that basically takes care of the go around problem. I actually do it out of habit because it gives me a little more surface area on the elevator in the
