  1. I was taught how to apply aircraft fabric by a fellow who built TBMs on Long Island, NY during the start of the war. He later flew in the South Pacific and visited Sydney and Townsville for leave. He passed recently and he had two pieces of advice that I take to heart: 1) airplanes will kill you if you give them half a chance, 2) cherish every moment. Simple.

    Tell us about your last flight

    I just buzz around the mountains east of San Diego with my buddies for one hour then we return home for some fuel and ice cream. Flight of four, three F-18s and my RV-3.
  3. I think they should send me one and I'll guarantee a satisfactory design that even one will love. It will be great. DT

    Tell us about your last flight

    Last flight was a test run over the Laguna Mountains in Southern CA to test a carb issue. RV-3 with 150hp climbs at 1500'fpm from 6500 to 9500'. What a plane.
  5. Agreed, will appeal to the youngsters who will be dissing us bluehairs in no time.
  6. Wings magically grow when you least expect it.

    Wiring an instrument panel

    AC 43.13 from the FAA, use aviation ring terminals, and a computer to generate small wiring labels attached with clear heat shrink.

    Gympie ERSA changes (Aug 16 2018)

    It is a shame. I was there a year ago looking at the hangar homes and was pleased. But with the landing and movement fee in Australia it looks like I should just stay in California. Oz needs to encourage GA, it is the perfect country for it and there would be plenty of money from fuel taxes, etc. Time for a revolution I'd say.

    Who’s going to Oshkosh 2018?

    Since my wife is Australian and I am keen on living there (just need to convince her) I will offer three USS Midway passes if anyone stops by San Diego. Well, actually I will take you on board since I am a volunteer and get to bring three people on board at one time.

    Who’s going to Oshkosh 2018?

    You could visit the Harley Museum in Milwaukee, WI. Not far from Oshkosh.
  12. Buy a partial RV kit and save lots of time and money. Do you like to fly or build? Now is the time to decide.

    Ryan Sport Trainer

    A friend of mine will probably sell his real Ryan based in Southern CA. He is past flying but loves his Ryan. The plane is in great shape but will need an annual. Interested contact me.
