That's ridiculous!

I have had a great interaction with Tracey Martin at Aviation Insurance Resources (https://air-pros.com/).

WANTED: Hangar to share at KAWO, KBLI, KBVS or nearby areas

I just acquired an RV-12 and right now she is tied down at AWO.

Ideally I'd like to keep it there, but as we know, hangar space is tough to find! BLI and BVS are possibilities as well.

If anyone...

Ben Barron connected me with David Cowan. I spoke with David at length yesterday, and it looks like things will work out.

Thanks for the ideas. Unfortunately, my situation is a bit more complicated. If you read my original post, I haven't flown in 20 years, so I have no way to get myself and the airplane to Mike.

Thanks Stitch462.

At this point Boise would also be doable- their operation looks pretty respectable from a quick look at the website.

I did find a couple more local people, but they are retired...

Rich,

Good point. I looked at the pressure vs flow graph for the Facet Cube pump, and at 5 PSI, it can maintain about 8 GPH so one would have to control the return flow rate through any additional...

I'm looking at an RV-12, but so far can't find a mechanic that is comfortable inspecting an LSA with a Rotax. I'm finding most A&P's almost hangup when I mention the RRRRR... Rotax word!
