    Airplane For Sale Glass Goose amphibian for sale

    Forgot to ask, where is the aircraft located and do the wings disassemble from the fuselage for transport? Is there a cowling fiberglass andassembly that go over the engine assembly and does the project come with the original plans/reference material.

    Airplane For Sale Glass Goose amphibian for sale

    Might be interested in it. I will contact you. Would you be able to part / sell it without the engine assembly. I do not see if you had a prop available with that assembly.

    In with a bang, out with a whimper

    I love the brochures on MVP and of course Icon. Camping and fishing appeals to a lot of us. The problem was IMHO you are trying to market to 20-40 year olds who are trying to start a family buy house, sports car, motorcycle etc. if you are not priced in a catagory of less than 50k for your...

    How Airlines Quietly Became Banks

    I think it was from Montreal to Vancouver as I have never been overseas as an adult. Flew from NY to LA a few times but don't remember double aisles. Now a days they all go to hubs and wussy airlines cancel when weather goes slightly bad. What is the use of being able to fly to CAT 1 or 2...

    Finding airport for ground/taxi testing

    In most of the posts I might have missed do you already have an N#. I know your aircraft hasn't been inspected yet but If you look into it further possibly the EAA and also with less skin in the game AOPA would be most helpful. Can an airport taking public/FAA funding deny you access to the...

    Mazda 13b w/ Tracy Redrive

    Thank you Charlie.I am familiar with their site. I hope I can modify the one currently on the FWF package I got without redesigning/purchasing one. Hopefully can just rearrange some tubing angle to fit the Cozy firewall and clear things, and then onto a new prop and modify the cooling rads to...
