Caution - InterAv "Spike Guard" Capacitor by MikeremlaP
Okay guys, I cut the cap open. See foto at http://www.fotolog.net/palmer_mp/ No foil that I can see. In fact, I'm not sure how this thing works. I thought the idea was to create maximum surface area. I probably should have buzzed the negative terminal to the can to see if

Find A&P/IA's name based on cert number by Chad
In my logs I have an A&P/IA's certificate number, but I can't read his signature so I don't know what the name is, how can I find his name and address? I looked at landings.com and faa.gov but they don't allow you to search on certificate number.

Cessna Glare Shield Cover by Al Gilson
The glare shield in our 64 Skyhawk is original, therefore not the most pristine to look at. Is there a cover available, such as the carpet covers you see for autos/trucks, available for airplanes? Yes, I know I can get a $200+ plastic cover rom Selkirk or others that covers the entire glare...

Voltage Regulator replacement by kontiki
Has anyone replaced their Delco Remy voltage regulator (the old mechanical type for a 50 amp generator) with a new solid state type by Zeftronics? CHief aircraft sells them, just wondering what anyone's experience was. Mine is old, acting up and charging too high. In the old days I guess you could...

I want to buy a plane by year-end but they're not making it easy. by T.Roger
I don't have my ticket yet -- and I'm really committed because I want to buy my own plane to train and fly -- and I want to take advantage of the tax write-off about to expire at year end. I've been at this since August. But, hell, they're not making it easy. All I've asked of Cirrus, Piper and...

337 to install a transponder? by Jay Honeck
I just purchased a Garmin GTX-327 off of Ebay (installed for one day, before the owner decided he REALLY wanted the Mode S GTX-330!), and am lining up installation. I was surprised to hear that a 337 form had to be filed for this installation. It's not a big deal for the avionics shop to do, but...

Cessna 172 with Wild Fuel Gauge Needle by jls
Anybody know the reason for this? The needle on the pilot's side is stable, but the needle on the co-pilot side swings wildly, especially when the tank is full. A float moves the needle around the dial. Why doesn't it stay still and be good like its brother?

Airgizmo and Garmin 496 Install Saga by Marco Leon
Apparently, installation of the Airgizmo panel dock is quite the touchy subject up here in the Northeast. I know this has been a subject of a number of threads but I figured I'd relay my experience so far. Since I would like it integrated with my Garmin 430 and 340 audio panel (for the audio out),...

WAAS upgrade for your G1000? by Dan Luke
From the Cessna Pilots Ass'n avionics forum: "Just talked to Tom Engberg at Cessna about G1000 WAAS upgrade. He said that Cessna was waiting on Garmin to propose an upgrade to the pre 07 G1000s. He also said that it was going to take a change in the GIAs and that would be very expensive. This...

Finding "Neutral" Position on Piper Elevator/Trim Tab by [email protected]
I have a '79 Piper Warrior with a floor-mounted flap lever/trim wheel and cover. The trim wheel has a metal needle pointing to a sticker on the cover to show "neutral". The only reason this matters is that setting the trim wheel/tab to neutral is part of the pre-flight checklist. The plastic...

Flying without FAA medical or insurance by Doodybutch
Last year, an acquaintance of mine turned 85 and stopped flying and sold his airplane. He just figured that he had done it long enough and he wasn't as sharp as he used to be. He flew a lot right up until he sold his plane and he was quite experienced. I suspect for private reasons that he had...

Hangar rent by Kobra
I don't know if this has been covered before, but how much is everyone paying for their hangars and what is provided? Mine is a T-hanger with a dirt floor, free electric and manual doors that are a bear to open and close. The hangar is damp of course, but not too bad. When we first secured it...
