I'm a 172 owner, but regularly fly in my buddy's Arrow. The 172 has to be the cheapest option because everything is fixed and welded - any aircraft with wobbly prop and retractable must cost more to...

Seeing as we are going down memory lane, Dave......Qatar reminds that I once hired (with instructor) a 172 from Fujairah - which ran on Mogas despite high temperatures (no Avgas in UAE). We went into...

I used to travel all over the world, and always wanted to get time in wherever I was visiting. Simple way was just to go with an instructor. I'd do all the flying and there was no need for paperwork....

Thanks for comments so far. I think I'll need to do it, because of recent problems AH "leaning" and DI deciding to suddenly spin of own accord. Had suction checked and not that, so maybe age is...

Has anyone gone dual G5s (in certified aircraft in UK) and lots of related questions.

Might be time for me to upgrade, as old instruments are getting past it. If anyone has gone dual G5s I'd appreciate info. What was complete cost including necessary extras? Where did you have it done...

Do UFOs have ADS-B out?

Recently upgraded my conspicuity awareness by fitting a SkyEcho 2, and it WiFi's to the phone I run Skydemon on. This Bluetooth's to my new headset, so I get audible warnings from Skydemon about...

My classic (?) Spamcan turned 50 this year, and much of the UK fleet probably isn't far behind! Unaware of any specialist insurers, but it's worth trying several for quotes. I won't promote the...

If you are anywhere near Rochester, Kent....

Never done it here, but at Rochester we have a Husky on floats (appropriately registered G-WATR), that trains would-be float pilots. Whilst Rochester (EGTO) is dry land (except in bad winters), they...

Total Agreement - doesn't work for private owners

The numbers quoted confirm that for a private owner, there is no worthwhile saving. I looked at all this when changing engines and just the cost of installation was unrecoverable for a regular...

Yes, you need to grind it in properly over first few hours, with high power settings, or your future oil consumption will be higher. It's a good time to decide which oil you will use long-term, as if...

Joys of Multigrade

A lot will depend on your operating conditions particularly temperature. Here in Blighty, multi grade 15/50 works well all year round, so no need to mess around when the seasons change. As soon as my...

Arrow probably isn't ELA1?

ELA1 is usually non-complex and 1200kg and below, to be able to apply the MIP/SDMP programme. I'm pretty certain Arrows dont come into this (my buddy's is 1202kg). Is therefore ELA2, so at present...

Makes sense

Thanks for that. Driven by regular vacuum pump rather than venturi. Both instruments are original 1969 fit. Both are quite noisy when gyros are running down, but don't think that's the problem. Need...

Any vacuum instrument experts out there?

Experienced some problems a couple of times. The Artificial Horizon develops a "lean" despite my being straight and level. This eventually corrects itself, but shortly after, the DI started...

Bluetooth yes!

Went this route and just added SkyEcho2 and Skydemon so I can get verbal warnings. Works fine with my phone (Skydemon on that), but is a bit small screen. Tried to do same with Galaxy Note 14.1 2014,...

Maybe try Bangphra?

About 10 years ago I managed to find a school there, not far from Bangkok. Couldn't self-hire but got an instructor to sit with me in a C150. Very interesting field as wires at one end and a mountain...

Check what you are allowed to do.....

There's a definitive list of items the pilot/owner is allowed to do which can be downloaded and used as your "bible" - but this is really stuff you can do during the year and at 50 hour check (you...

Helpful pushers

Many years ago, the donkey stopped and I managed to glide onto the runway at the Bedford MoD station (as it then was). I'd forgotten to do the proper Mayday call, but instead called "engine stopped",...

Correct

Right about the Sensenich. 2000 hours to match the Lycoming. Believe you can make your mind up about SDMP, but when you get to annual, your engineer can disagree and amend when he does the review....

Question Tax payable on used aircraft parts from USA?

I'm sure I've read stuff before, but can you experts confirm if any duty is payable on used aircraft parts (structural brackets, not avionics etc), and what about VAT? I seem to remember buying...

Looked it up!

Wondered if it was a real department and realised you meant Jim Hacker's job. But spookily, Norwegian Government actually has one!

Question What does Ofcom actually do?

Recently, I was naturally delighted to receive my latest demand for for my Aircraft Radio Licence Fee. Whilst it isn't a great deal of money (only 20 for 3 years), I can't help wondering what is the...
