Don't forget to do an AOA crosscheck against Airspeed indication entering the pattern

I would suggest everyone who uses AOA during their flying crosscheck the AOA indication versus a known airspeed on downwind before betting their lives on that indicator. AOA indicators are VERY...

I recently installed one of these in my 8 wing. No trimming was necessary and I would be hesitant to trim anything without Garmin’s approval.

Tie down knots

My father, an old sailor from the Navy, taught me you could bet your life on a rolling hitch. He also braided rope matts and did some unbelievable splicing of ropes on themselves. I glazed over when...

Cleaveland C Frame

I will put in a good word for Cleaveland Aircraft Tools. The service after the sale is wonderful at Cleaveland. I had a Cleaveland C Frame with which I was breaking off #40 dimple dies. I talked to ...
