New Home (2020-09-09)
The Bonanza got a new home last week. We moved across the field into the north hangars at Sacramento Executive.
New Tire and Vacuum Pump (2020-09-01)
On Friday, I met an airplane and powerplant mechanic (A&P) friend at the airport to take care of a few maintenance items. I want to be able to do a some of the maintenance on the plane myself, but as an owner, I’m limited to doing “preventative maintenance” tasks (as described in FAR Part 43). For everything else I need to hire an A&P to do it or to supervise me.
Shelter Cove (2020-08-11)
Got two chances this past weekend to put some memorable flights in my logbook.
“The two happiest days in a boat owner’s life: the day you buy the boat, and the day you sell the boat.”
I know enough to know this goes for airplanes too. But I don’t know enough to make that stop me.
