Re: Hey Doc

Thanks Dave. He is already talking to an AME. It's surely possible for 3rd class. Need a monocular vision test. For 2nd and 1st one need a checkride with FAA.

Hey Doc

Asking for a potential foreign student pilot. Is it possible to get a 3rd class medical having only 10% on one eye? The second eye is 100. Heard elsewhere on a professional pilot board there was a precedent a pilot flew with one eye. Would be glad to hear from a doctor is it possible and how to proc...

Re: 2018 Flying Stats

Very nice 2018 report Bruce. As I always say it's not about the hours flown it's about the destinations visited and people met. It looks like you had an impressive geography covered with your RV. I am standing at 813 enjoyable hours this past year. The little RV is approaching 5K mark she is getting...

Re: Planning a 2019 US tour. Anyone up for a visitor?

Капитан good plan! If wx doesn't allow you to reach Bruce go to KIPL. A motel right by the ramp just punch the gate code in. A Mexican cantina is in the building say hi to Mama Rosa the owner and chef. Affordable California at its best. Stop by Vegas too. https://i447.photobucket.com/albums/qq197/N6...

RV Mini Series by Restless Crow Studios

My good buddy Wade and I flew from Portland OR to Palmer Alaska early June 2018. Wade started composing episodes on YouTube. Please take a look. I wish I knew which camera he chose for the cut I would keep my mouth shut :grin: Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfgIessgvJw&app=desktop

Re: RV-9A annual condition inspection writeup

Bruceman nice documenting! Love the borescope pictures. I did my condition within three days before the Aleutian Campaign. 30+ hours later somewhere in Yukon I pull carb heat on a runup and cable came right off. My ottopilot made a fun video while we were fixing it :lol:

Worn baffle

Just discovered a worn baffle on cylinder #4. It passed previous condition inspection and now couple hundred hours later I have this. How would you fix it? To replace the whole baffle is a PITA the oil cooler sits on it. Would be a patch a good idea in this highly vibratory corner? http://i447.photo...
