Thanks @Bell206. The troubling oversight - at least from what I'm seeing and I'm probably in error on this - is that you can't see the actual corrosion, at least in the example Roy gives in that video, with a boroscope. The entire wing must be removed and the plates of aluminum and steel at the...
Roy Williams of Airframe Components gives probably the very best explanation of the mechanical implications and repair of Piper SB 1244B.
Maybe someone can clarify, though, when at minute 3 he is showing some mated aluminum with steel plating which has severely degraded around the area of the...
Searched forum for 'insurance' and specifically for keyword 'seniors' - no results other than a warning to seniors about high rates. Can't say I didn't try.
So here's the question: anyone have some ballpark figures for Piper Cherokee 180 or Piper Arrow 180 hp or similar, low time VFR senior...
Thank you for that added bit of information. The email I received said "general physical" every 4 years and the post here says "cme" every 4 years. If a general physical, when does the clock start ticking for that? At the issuance of the basicmed? If CME - what is that?
thank you. so to be clear, even though prior to basic med I would have needed a medical exam every 2 years, because my 3rd. class medical was issued in 2014 I will only need BasicMed going forward so long as I comply with basicmed flying regulations?
Low time private pilot looking to get back in the game. VFR, single-engine land. Had my last physical 1/2014 and haven't flown since before then. Want to get current and back in the saddle.
Do or don't I need to get a complete physical or will BasicMed fit the bill?
Thanks all for the great suggestions. I did some math and saw that the piper arrow speeds along at 75% Cruise: 161 mph and a PA-28 at 75% Cruise: 142 mph or about 20 miles per hour faster. Flying say for 500 miles one will arrive in 3 hours and 10 minutes the other in 3 hours and 52 minutes...
I'm always amazed at how badly Google searches can turn out.
Can't seem to get a list of 200+ hp fixed gear singles.
Always bringing back articles on everything but what I need.
Anyone have a clue on model/manufacturers of these aircraft less than 90k used?
Thanks so much!
Hello. New to aircraft purchasing and considering a piper 28 series aircraft most probably from the 60's or early 70's.
Call me silly, but I have an unfounded fear of the wings or stabilizer separating in flight from such an ancient aircraft.
During a pre-purchase inspection is there a method...
