100LL is a misnomer... it is not low lead. Aviation fuel contains enough Tetraethyl Lead (and then some) to prevent detonation. Detonation would be as Elon Musk saysÖ rapid unscheduled disassembly. Aircraft engines are built very light-weight and barely remain in one piece as it is. In addition, the high lead content is bad for the 9-series gearbox slipper clutch.

It's compact and quite usable. You can also print it from the PDF to that size or another percentage if you like, of course. The old/original binder style is no longer available.

I'll post a couple of photos of the new style book soon.
Greg,


Were you able to get a picture of the new format POH? Is it now available?

Thanks,

Harry Burnette

Iíve seen it, and itís not possible to replace individual pages when revisions are published. Definitely a step in the wrong direction from my perspective.

I agree with Bob Y. The previous format was much nicer and fits the original binder well.

I ended up getting an A5 soft-sided binder, dividers and punch. Printed it two sided A5 reduced to 95% on 1/2 sheets (8.5 X 5.5) and it worked pretty well for me. Still larger than the previous version, but at least it can be updated now.
