    J5 is the answer that you seek. A wide cub you can fly from the front. Wish I could find a good one.

    Reading glasses and taking off in the Sun

    I use these when flying. Dewalt bifocal, tinted safety glasses they are like $12 on Amazon. If I don't need the sun glasses I use regular readers.

    This awesome airplane is not right for you if you need to see the logbooks

    It is a simple thing to scan or even take a picture of any relevant log book pages. I scanned my logs as soon as I bought the plane so if they were ever lost I had a back up. I have the logs back to '57 and it took maybe 1/2 hour to scan on the copier in my office. New entries get scanned as...

    What attributes do you think new MOSAIC compliant LSA aircraft should have to return General Aviation to 10,000 aircraft sales per year?

    Can we please work on getting an simple 4 or 6 cylinder 145-150HP engine overhaul under 20K before we start working on this? I have a '57 172 that needs an overhaul for reasons. The current debate with me and my co-owner is do we sell it off for parts or spend 33 grand to get an o-300 overhaul?

    Private Pilot Training Timeline Question

    I live in the north and did my training over a full year. It was just the way it worked out. I didn't feel the need to fly twice a week although I know some people do.

    What do you consider life changing money

    No amount of money would "change my life". I am not money motivated. I am extremely frugal. More money would allow me to retire earlier. As has been said to me the free time means more than the money. With a lot more money I could be generous to a lot of people. I would really enjoy giving...

    Is Dan Gryder the biggest tool on aviation youtube?

    Courts should rely on official correspondence using the USPS. I realize this is 2023 but you need real acknowledgment of receipt. I get tons of email. I get tons of spam. I get tons of vendor email. Most I delete without opening. Some I open realize what they are and delete them...

    OSH - T-6 goes into Lake Winnebago Saturday 7/29 morning

    I did say, "accepting a little bounce on the landing." When I looked at her landing it wasn't pretty but I have seen far worse hec I have made far worse. Some airplanes are worse for PIO I have heard some Mooneys for example. I was a passenger in one that got pretty sketchy pretty fast.
