Software to write to PCMCIA datacards? by Charles[_1_]
I'd like to update the database for my Apollo GX55 GPS. $120 for the raw data is bad enough, but Jeppesen also wants $150 for a writer. The datacard is a PCMCIA card, so wouldn't it be possible to work with it with a plain old laptop or a $10 reader from Best Buy? I'm wondering if someone has...

Oversized bolts by Kjell Sivertsen
Over some time the bolt holes in the link between the horizontal stabilizer and the trim mechanism have been elongated. To get rid of the play, I consider installing an oversized bolt. The original bolt is an AN5-7. I am confused about the designation on oversized bolts. Can anyone help ? Thank...

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...

Importing Canadian aircraft into US by Shad
I see this subject was discussed on the list back in '99, but I was wondering what people have been doing lately. I am purchasing a Canadian registered 206 and am importing it into the US. The aircraft just had an annual, but the owner doesn't have insurance on it, so the option of having him fly...

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...

MX385 Radio removal by Marty from Florida
Hey everyone. I had a radio guy adjust my sidetone from the radio, and he messed it up. No longer is the sidetone faint, it is now completely dead. My question to the group is, what exactly do I need to remove the radio and adjust the sidetone. I have a single hole in the lower center of the...

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...

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 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),...

Throttle or Prop control first after takeoff by cyberflyrg
We are having a argument about what is better to do after takeoff. Some mechanics say pull power back first after takeoff and then adjust prop speed after, my mechanic says prop speed back first and then manifold pressure after that. What the "right" thing to do that will not damage the prop...

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...
