American Bonanza Society 50th Anniversary Convention

The American Bonanza Society is hosting their annual convention in Wichita on Sept 21-24, 2017. It will be their 50th anniversary and the 70th anniversary of the Bonanza (in production). I thought if Jeb brought the Debbie up, it'd be a good opportunity to try to get persuade Jack to come out and ha...

Re: "Rookery" UCAP425

While most of us are used to a crankshaft with a prop flange, some of the early small Continentals (A65, C90) actually used a taper shaft crank. A taper shaft hub was mounted to the prop, and then slid on to the tape...

UCAP 404-Worsening Conditions

Hey Guys, I just wanted to add another thing about Adrian that didn't come up on the podcast. As I mentioned in the forums, I recently purchased a Debonair. As part of that process, I attended all of the flying and maintenance seminars with regards to Bonanzas that I could get to at Oshkosh last sum...

Re: Video of Dad and Daughter upside down.

I think everyone should be able to set their own level of risk tolerance. Sometimes regulations are put in place to help people appropriately adjust that risk level. Many people feel the same way about low time general aviation pilots flying old airplanes that you feel about this guy flying aerobati...

New Debonair stalking the forums

Hi guys, I just wanted to give a quick intro of myself. I’ve been listening to the podcast for a long time, and lurking in the forums for almost as long. I’ve gotten a lot from the group involved, and thought that I could maybe provide a little more fodder for conversation if nothing else. http://i5...
