    What Did You Do To Save General Aviation Today?

    This is the Pacific Island I was deemed "stranded on" by the young HBA flyer VB in one of our past exchanges. That is Cocos Island, in the lower left. Our local flight school out for fun. The south and east corner of Guam is our Practice Area. Pago Bay is ahead about due east of PGUM. I...

    The lack of portability ( hi hangar costs ) killed ULs imop

    FROM LATEST KITPLANES WEEKLY Unfortunate oversight. However, clearly Badland Aircraft confirms Dan Johnson's comment (POST #9 in this thread) indicating FAR103 manufacturers are far from having been "killed". For those that don't know, Chris Deuel picked up the Kitfox Lite design and has...

    Six Subaru Powered Airplanes

    Gosh yes.... One such engine even had all of NINE miles on the odometer. Link just below. Damaged on the ship. Some have a few hundred. Buyers can see photos of the vehicle. Or buy a brand new Honda if they want to pay extra. Buying a newly assembled engine does have risks...

    So I though I would buy some books from the EAA.... silly me

    I exchanged emails with those membership folks who tried to get me to reverse my membership cancellation. I explained how several times my inquiries, on what were for me reasonably important matters, not frivolous or time wasting issues, were just ghosted. No reply. No interest. Happened...

    Chas7711... look at the OP #1 post just before yours. There is a link there with this all caps statement.... "AIRFRAME / DETAILS ON MODIFICATIONS / COMPLETE PHOTOS at this link". There are 18 photos shown in a zip file at that other thread. That thread also has some good feedback on what...

    KOLB Mark III Project - Phoenix AZ $8500

    My profuse apologies. Seems so many years "stranded on a Pacific Island" has led to me suffering from serious loss of social skills. Happy B'Day.

    Just Aircraft 103 Solo?

    Pretty Clear for those who read the article from Dan Johnson just posted. “Our 103 Solo is manufactured by Top Rudder Aircraft LLC, not Just Aircraft LLC,” explained associate Amy Minnich. (If her name sound familiar, her parents — Steve and Debbie Minnich — run Evektor dealership, Dreams Come...

    Just Aircraft 103 Solo?

    My thoughts exactly. Merlin Lite Part 103 is even more. With the coming changes for Light Sport aircraft, there should be lots of options in this price range. I hope there is a buyer's market in LSA soon. BUT, that said, for some the lack of FAA oversight for Part 103 is worth the...
