  2. Safety Thought.. How confident are you that you really do know the actual Empty Weight of your aircraft? Since important calculations and loading decisions originate from this critical weight, its vital to know what it actually is. Is the empty weight in the POH correct? Do you trust that the weight stated at time of CofA must be correct just because it couldn't possibly be wrong, given all the measures in place to prevent any such errors? If you are reading between the lines you may be in for a shock. Trust but Verify.
  3. At risk of being shot down in forum flames.. I'd at least be checking with Jabiru that the 600Kg Fwd limit is not a typo in the POH. If I were a fit trim solo pilot who hadn't have a big breakfast, and found myself in an 'out of fuel' scenario, from my calcs I'd want to see Fwd COG limit not more than 195mm (19.7% MAC) in order to be able to land slowly and safely. I don't know the Jab, and am working from info in POH V4 Feb 20 and guessed the fuel arm, The thread is very interesting, and whatever the answer is, it's a good spot, a great question and a good exercise to go through anyway.

  6. Has anyone made this Skyfox maintenance manual available? I'm looking for a copy. Thanks in advance.
  7. I realise this thread is quite old now, but I was quoted $1300 for a 100 hourly on my LSA one year ago. It ended up costing near 4K. Long story. Since then I've gained L1 and L2 and do 912's by the Maintenance Manual. I'm appalled by the comment that it takes 10 plus 5 plus 30 mins, but I'm probably not allowed to say that. I'll happily spend a whole day on a 912 200 hr service, whilst that may not be cost effective, it's a matter of personal satisfation and a smooth running clean engine at the end of that day. What is a full 912 L2 200 hr service worth these days? My guess, probably ar
