Re: Check That Control Stick Attachment

The rear stick in the Scout CAN be removed. ACA actually makes a cover to go over the exposed stub that remains. It is not the front seat that is the problem, it is the rear seat.

Re: Full length takeoff

I forget where(australia maybe) the Antonov took out about 150' of chain link fence, and flew with it to afghanistan or something. Great vid A few of the details are a bit different but you may be recalling this one. This was also on landing. https://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20070...

Go big or go home. By 9 of these and watch the mouths drop open. Imagine a 9=plane roll! Bonus capability in the off season.

Re: Just a little miffed - preheating

Agreed. Also, if it is a smaller field, with a single operator on site, I am surprised that the person, if it was indeed their reserved cord, wouldn't just poke their head into the hangar and let you know that they needed "their" cord. I am very proud that aviation seems to be the last bas...

Re: Just a little miffed - preheating

The Director Of Maintenance would be one of the people that Pilot DAR would be there to work with. This does NOT mean that they own, control or even have anything to do with the parking spots or the power cords serving those spots. Perhaps it was his cord, perhaps it was one that belonged to his com...

Mikey McBryan may have to start another YouTube series to pay for the fill up of his DC-3. It's parked there and he is planning to go to Oshkosh.

Re: Howey Bay - Red Lake Fuel options

I've always used Chimo Air in the past but they were taken over by Superior Airways last summer and I have not been there since. I'm sure they can advise you on the availability of fuel. http://superiorairways.com/

Hi Blakey, Trust you are well and keeping busy my friend! So is 122.0 still being commonly used? That’s not the impression I got from the link you provided...
