Default 2350 Report

Flew down to Iowa yesterday to have lunch with a college buddy who is a doctor in Cedar Rapids. Had a great lunch on the tarmac discussing families, covid and the good old days(like 2019). On the way home, I flipped over 2350 hours while cruising over Northern Iowegia.....



Got home, dropped the oil, and here are the details:

Sump screen - 2 chunks of crushable carbon - only ran the safety wire thru my finger twice getting that sucker re-tied down.

Oil filter - Lots of little carbon chunks, little if any metal

Compressions - 78/78/78/76 Cold

Plugs have 50 hours and a nice tan color

Moxie supervised the entire operation.......

It's a well known fact that no passenger has ever remained awake more than 20 minutes in Pete's RV-9. Closing the canopy apparently has the same effect as the sleep pods in the space opera movies. It reflects a high degree of confidence in his pilot skills, or maybe it's just carbon monoxide
