Re: Flight simulator software for Cessna 172 question

A year or so ago, a nice young man (pre-PPL) asked me to fly with him - his regular instructor was out of town. So, I showed up for the flight with my paperwork, which consisted to 2 blank sheets of 8.5x11 paper, which I proceeded to cover the entire left side of the dashboard, by pushing the paper ...

Re: Aeroshell 100 vs w100

If you're going to live with a radial engine, order a 55 gal drum of W120 (I am not a fan of the ubiquitous 25w60 multi-vis for radials) which you will measure oil for (and add) in units of gallons ... And also order a 55 gal drum of mineral spirits and some bales of rags so that you can remove the ...

Re: FAA bans Thunderbirds to fly supersonic at Airventure

I'm pretty sure that supersonic flight has been 'streng verboten' at air shows since the beginning If memory serves, sonic booms (resulting from supersonic flight) were common events in the USA in the 1950's (including at airshows). Some time after that, the FAA banned supersonic flight over the 48...

Re: Aeroshell 100 vs 100W

100 is mineral (break-in) oil.

W100 is (normal) ashless dispersant summer weight oil.

NB W100 is equivalent in viscosity to SAE 50W. The
location of W matters.
