    Why I Fly!

    This is one of the reasons why I fly for a hobby instead of going in other directions. This is also why I prefer the mountains to the beach and haven't been to the beach in 10 years. Its why I shower instead of bathe. Its why I buy the small Slurpie at 7/11 instead of the big one. I-95 through...

    Different stick shake / cabin hop

    A few people really helped me at Bensen Days this past year with a stick shake problem that also was causing my stick forces to be extremely high. I'm happy to say that Davey Seace nailed it, and it was insufficient undersling that was solved by moving to the topmost hole in the rotorhead...

    Seat andn saddle tank recommendations

    I'm trying to decide on a lightweight front seat replacement for my drop keel Parson's. I'm removing an un-plumbed, fiberglass seat tank. Since I can't use it for both balance reasons as well as ethanol fuel likely destroying it, I would like to replace it with a comfortable but very lightweight...

After I read it, I gave it to a prospective gyro head so don't have it anymore so that I can see what the issue number was... it was the issue with the...

    Old Benson

    This evening, Airscooter and I were scouting out a possible new airfield a little closer to our homes. I had heard people in our EAA club mention that a Bensen was hidden in the back of one of the open hangars at this field and while we were walking around we found it. I took some photos. It...

    Sport pilot test prep

    Ok... I know there is a search function and I've already used it. But searching for sport pilot on a site about flying is about like searching for the letter "a".

    Proper Terminology

    Something these forums have been lacking that almost all other forums for other interest groups have is a sticky thread that has a key code to terminology commonly used in that field of interest. I know that I regularly have trouble ordering materials out of the various catalogs or web pages...
