FS: DC One-X Headset

This was my wife's headset. I bought it after completing my PPL Feb 2020. The ANC failed to turn on about 3-4 months ago. We sent it back to DC and it was overhauled. In the meantime, she bought...

As a Psychiatrist, I have to ask:
What does the PTSD button do? What does that acronym stand for in your plane?

I don't have one, but I have flown in an 8 with this prop. Guy that owned it said he paid $800 for the prop used, which was the obvious buy. It was also powered by an overhauled O-320 that sounded...

In the same spirit, if someone wanted to start rewriting the build manuals for the -7, -8, -9 to match the layout of the build manuals for the new planes, that'd be killer.

I would sell it as well, outright.

If it has some sentimental value, consider selling a 49% share with the option to buy out when you get home and provision for full insurance. Your buyer really...

I started our 7A project 2 months after arriving at Sheppard AFB. I know I'll be here for 4 years (medical corps), and I'll be punching out as soon as they let me. We don't have any kids (yet), and...

RAmen.

I had figured the CFSM had gone by the wayside. I'm happy to be proven wrong.

I bought Isham's set off planetools, and am really glad I did. The DRDT-2 is a must-have, as well as the pneumatic squeezer. I opted for the middle of the road drill upgrade, and love my drill. ...

1166 out of 10779 RVs completed are RV-9s according to https://www.vansaircraft.com/first-flights/
