Re: "I'm Just Sayin'" UCAP #215

The issue with chains is that they have no flexibility. In gusty weather, when the plane gets to rockin' (insert bumper sticke...

Re: Episode #152 "Dave Needs NyQuil"

It seems to me that the more eyes inspecting an aircraft (owner and IA, or A&P and IA) that more discrepancies would be found. Just my two cents... Couldn't agree more - just don't call it an annual. People take the whole supervision thing to the other extreme and get their IA buddies to pencil...
