    3D Printed (FDM) Cabin Plugs

    I’d pay $80.

    Baggage space CTLS

    On a CTsw, it's tough. I managed with a smaller roll-aboard once and then switched to some nice LL Bean duffle bags.

    Anyone have a CT here in Utah?

    Hi Andreas, Sure hope you find someone to fly with. I’d love to, but I’m a ways away from you (New York). Two things you might want to pass on to any instructor you fly with: Flight Training Supplement: http://documents.flightdesignusa.com/flight_training_supplement.pdf Aircraft Operating Instructions: http://documents.flightdesignusa.com/SW-POH.pdf Great reading. Don’t give up, it’s an amazing airplane with fantastic performance and efficiency. Kent

    First Passenger... new pilot, new plane

    That’s fantastic! I was just there a few days ago for lunch. Love the pic! Kent

    do I need to filter mogas?

    Hi EFB. I also get 94UL from there. Nice people. But it has been hard to pass up the ethanol free fuel for under $3 in my area at the local gas station. (To find ethanol free fuel, use the app PureGas)
  6. Thanks AG! That was when I was doing the 2 hours of familiarization flying before I could take anyone with me for insurance purposes. Funny thing... I don’t think I’ve ever been able to land that well since! Kent
  7. I have been using PlanePerfect cleaning supplies. Their belly cleaner is absolutely amazing. Just spray on and wipe off like it’s dust. It used to be a chore. https://planeperfect.us/products/bbb

    Decals & Pin-striping

    I think so. It was a year ago, and I had the annual done as well, so it all mixes together.

    Decals & Pin-striping

    Mine was $1700 for the removal and reapplication.

    Decals & Pin-striping

    It was a sign shop that did the work. They do mostly cars and vans. Came out absolutely perfect. I had them do the N-numbers black with a silver shadow to match the scheme. Really like how that turned out.

    Decals & Pin-striping

    I had the cowling repainted due to some chipped paint. But the old scheme had three stripes that would need to be replaced. Rather than try try to match those up, I asked Arian about doing the new scheme. Kent

    Decals & Pin-striping

    Yep, Buckaroo that’s mine! They buffed out the white and there is NO difference in the areas that had the old decals. So happy with the results and Flight Design USA’s Tom and Arian.

    CTSW flying @ 22 below zero!

    500fpm, 60 knots, 15 degrees flaps

    Or even try midfield for idle. For me, any later and I have to extend downwind farther than I’d like.
