    I’m somewhat surprised to hear that from you. You never have trouble with fuel moving from one tank to the other when parking on an...

    It is what it is, whether it makes sense or not. And like I alluded to in post #2, if the searey in question is an LSA, a private...

    Why does it seem odd? Seaplane training and the checkride really doesn’t cover things that would be involved with operating an...

    There are plenty of super cubs on amphibious floats that are not complex.

    Amphibious has no bearing on whether or not a complex endorsement is required when operating a seaplane. Hint: a Cessna 180 on straight...

    You're right, it is not applicable. But the inner diameter of a 150hp crank will rust the same as it will if it is a 160hp. Piper's SB...

  11. mondtster liked Stewartb's post in the thread 76 182P O-470 Lifter and Cam Corrosion Concern.

    Last one I got a few years back was $5000ish.

    That was my point. The claim I was quoting was that the requirements would be in the oplims. They aren’t, or at least haven’t been on...

    And a proficiency check. And an endorsement.
