Hershey bar wing vs composite wing - how much drag? by Nathan Young
I have a Cherokee 180, with the short hershey bar wing. While I love the plane, I always wish it could go a bit faster, or use a bit less fuel to get to my destination. I have followed the composite homebuilding movement for many years, and am amazed at the sleekness of a composite wing. The...

Another who pays question by Viperdoc[_4_]
Had a major radio install on my Baron- a Garmin 530W and 430W. As part of the install the avionics shop moved the radar display. On the trip home (the same trip where in IMC the alternator quit) I turned the radar on, since there were some storms over my home airport as indicated by the...

Electric trim by Bruce McFadden
I have a 1968 PA32-260 which has a PET-1 electric trim. It works well. I am ready to get rid of the bow-tie yokes in favor of new PMA'd yokes from Avion or refurbished yokes from Wentworth. My problem is the trim switch. The design of the current switch will not fit a ram's horn style yoke. ...

Aircraft Insulation by Clay
I am looking into aircraft insulation and saw some photos of a plane with AVSOUND insulation. The material looked very neat. I would like to obtain a sample of the material but have not been able to locate a source.

Annual Off to a Good Start by Jay Honeck
Although I am starting to resent the whole annual inspection process. More on that in a minute. All compressions on our O-540 are 78 or better out of 80, so that's always a relief. The oil filter was clean (as always), and the exhaust system is sound. Those are three big-ticket items off the list...

yet another annual story - day one by Bob Noel
We started the annual on my cherokee 140 today (started with a trip around the pattern). I spent the day opening up the panels, etc, changing the oil filter and such while the two mechanics spent most of their day having fun putting a new fuel bladder in a 402. Compression good (78, 78, 78,...

yet another annual story - day two by Bob Noel
Almost done, a few things left. During the annual, I'm having a new knots-2-U tail beacon installed. (their website says 6.5 hours - ask them for some of what they are smoking). This work took most of today. Otherwise we would have finished today - the benefits of having a simple cherokee. And...

Overlay/Panel Lighting? by Mike Spera
I have a 74 Cherokee 140 that does not have any panel lighting other than the red overhead. The 2 VOR/ILS indicators are internally lit as is the VC compass and clock. These are all running off the one lone factory dimmer. On full, the indicator lights will illuminate the cabin, so I run them...

Glareshield Overhaul? by Mike Spera
After 13 years since recovering, my Cherokee 140 glareshield vinyl has developed a crack that has gotten pretty ugly. I was happy with the original (when the covering was new). I liked the fact that it was solid and could be grabbed as a handhold. I understand that these things have screws...
