  1. Congratulations Leo on becoming a Private Pilot. Your hard work paid off.
  2. I'm finding that all of my pictures are too big to post. Do I have a settings problem? I only noticed the problem this week.
  3. ...and isn't that one of the real joys of General Aviation? Its the people.
  4. ยง 91.303 Aerobatic flight. No person may operate an aircraft in aerobatic flight - (a) Over any congested area of a city, town, or settlement; (b) Over an open air assembly of persons; (c) Within the lateral boundaries of the surface areas of Class B, Class C, Class D, or Class E airspace designated for an airport; (d) Within 4 nautical miles of the center line of any Federal airway; (e) Below an altitude of 1,500 feet above the surface; or (f) When flight visibility is less than 3 statute miles. For the purposes of this section, aerobatic flight means an intentional maneuver involving an abrupt change in an aircraft's attitude, an abnormal attitude, or abnormal acceleration, not necessary for normal flight.

  5. Welcome. This is a good place to get an education.
  6. I went through each version of nose strut. Sooo, actually started in 2012. http://lsaeronaut.blogspot.com/2012/11/at-us-sport-aircraft.html. Rubber was done in 2015. Yep. ...and then we get back to faith, confidence and trusting the knowledge of the person doing the work. (Start with the cost of the parts from CAI then add the labor rate of your favorite A&P.)
  7. OK, I know this is dangerous territory but I'll start the discussion. When you see that beautiful picture in the trade paper consider this: I have a 2010 PiperSport. She flies about 100 hours (average) each year. I spend about $1K for my annual (100 hour) inspection. Also, I've had this work done: Rubber $5K Nose Strut $6.2K Main strut $2K BRS $1.5K ADSB $4 to 5K Of all of theses, the Rubber Replacement was the most invasive, most troublesome maintenance I had done (by a major Rotax "Specialist" in central Florida).
  8. Welcome, CoffeeJoe. You're at one of the most informative sites around. You will get a lot of valuable information and a wealth of opinions. Enjoy.

    I have. Fly the airplane. https://lsaeronaut.blogspot.com/2012/09/canopy-latch-handle.html
  10. ...at my age, I get to choose who I fly with. You are NOT the student from hell, you are "a chosen one". Welcome to the group.
  11. I may have mentioned it here but didn't change it out. I was hoping a LOA would allow me to upgrade. I'm averaging just under 200 hours per unit. I agree with the heat/cooling issue.
  12. As I announced my exit from the runway, I was alerted to low voltage. I ordered a new Ducati voltage rectifier from Certus. It would be my 5th replacement since new.
  13. Welcome, Scott. Flying and instructing in a SportCruiser is just so much more fun than flying a Cessna. What would you consider a "good deal"?
