    Oshkosh Memories

    Little Scrapper came up with a great idea to help us all cope with the cancellation of Oshkosh this year. Post photos, memories of past visits and whatever else you can think of to allow for the type of online healing only this hallowed place can give :cool: I'll start us off: Last year(2019)...

    Oshkosh 2020 Cancelled

    The title says it all unfortunately. Here's the Twitter post: Oshkosh 2020 Cancelled Give the link some time as EAA's site is obviously getting hammered right now....I myself had kept up a little hope of this happening, thankfully the cabin I set up for this moved my reservation to next year...

    Sun N Fun Home Edition

    A decent idea more aimed at making them some cash(donation button front and center), but some nice stuff being uploaded to it like interviews and air show stuff and the like. Worth a look at least. Sun N Fun Home Edition

    Airline Bailout done and done.... Lets try and do this without any politics, or at least as little as possible. I'm only interested in who got the lions share and how it can, if at all, benefit GA. Doesn't look like anything went our way though.

    Virtual Fly In's

    Good idea! May be the only way for something like this to happen for the foreseeable future unfortunately. I'd advise against Zoom though, it's getting a deserved reputation for being a security nightmare. Lot's of better ones out there. Virtual Fly In, Kitplanes article

    No one can explain WHY planes fly...

    Very interesting article, if a bit long winded. I wonder if we'll ever come to a right proper conclusion... https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/no-one-can-explain-why-planes-stay-in-the-air/?utm_source=digg&utm_medium=email

    Why so expensive??

    While I was looking through my recommended YouTube video list, I came across a tour shop of Adventura showcasing their wares. It showed what went into building one of their amphibious 2 seaters....and the thing that struck me the most was that it didn't look like much more than aluminum tubes...

    Can a Challenger/Excalibur have folding wings?

    I've been told the wings are removable, but can they or have they ever incorporated a "swing wing" type of folding mechanism? I can share a hanger where I'm moving to and I'm looking into any type of lower cost aircraft that can do this. I have currently found quite a few Challengers I can get...

    VW Engine Maintenance

    While I see tons of info regarding how to choose, build and install VW engines on this forum I'd love to know how to do basic/advanced maintenance on them. I know no one who has one so I can't ask there. This is an engine I've long admired but simply don't know what to expect to have to do, at...

    What's the easiest plans/kits built sheet metal plane for the massively inexperienced

    Seriously, I'm ok with my hands, but never even tried to do anything on a scale this huge before. I have a two car garage at my disposal and can get whatever tools I need. I'm literally starting from scratch here. I'm a student LSA pilot, btw, 51 y.o., so I know this limits me a bit, and I'm...
