  1. Actually we have the peterson footage from the 60’s regarding bigfoot. Wich would make the LOA more elusive.
  2. I was hoping youd say that. You personally know how bad i want to get my hands on a real czaw.
  3. Still have to buy tooling to do your own maintenance. Jacks. Torque wrenches. Spring scales ( that should be calibrated) extra cost. Protractor for control deflection. Grease and gun. Oil filter wrench and cutter. Safety wire and pliers. Screw gun, light , inspection mirror,place to put your greasy oily rags and gloves. Special tooling from rotax. Computer or printer or ipad because you have to have documentation while doing the work. Compression tester. Purge fixtures for oil. Maybe even a solvent tank. A 10x magnify glass. Magnet for oil filter particles. Torque stripe. A contraption for the fuel tightness check. (Regulated). Sounds like a smal fbo in the long run. And those are just off the top of my head.
  4. Thats great to hear shawnM and ronnin5573, sounds like you two are on top of things, lately i have ran across sellers who just dont know, or their pockets are that deep.
  5. What is the going cost for an A&P in this category. I gaurantee what the company is charging you we mechanics dont see that. I would guess the average mechanic makes $15-25hr. I know some companies charge as high as $80-95
  6. Absolutely! One page. ( front and back) I already thought about the first 10 lines im going to write. It will be one to hang on the wall!!! Lol
  7. Anybody have a plane i can wash and wax? Im getting bored
  8. From 2015 till today. What was the longest period the motor was not cranked? With only 40 some hours there are some gaps. My opinion = get a pre buy inspection done by a neutral party. Lsrm, A&P, an owner operator who is familiar with rotax and czeck sport airframes. Check the logbooks, factory paperwork, maintenance records. Make sure its up to date with the ICA. What SB’s and SA’s have been complied with. And when and by who. Again just my thoughts. And also AD’s. I found two already
  9. Excellent advice shawnM. He is spot on with this. Keep your records, review them. Some areas on the checklists are fill in the blanks, you need to know this information. They tell a story, especially to me. They help me pinpoint a pattern or trouble areas. Plus you paid for this service. It holds the mechanic to his word if he initials each item. I personally would get a binder and keep every one. You can look back on them and create a chart. For example- Two annuals ago you started loosing compression in cyl#2, well now say it is really low. We can pretty much connect the dots here with the road map on the likely hood of what needs to be done.
