Re: Brackett BA-154 filter

Paul,

No I do not have 337 on a Brackett BA-154.

Question: What airplane uses a BA-154?
I have looked at Aircraft Spruce, Wicks, Univair, Wag Aero and Chief. Nobody has a BA-154.
I finally downloaded Brackett Aero Filters Inc. Catalog. Not listed.
Help!

Hey Mike,
Hope you have thick skin, because with both a Champ & a Chief your going

Re: Lousy weather

Mike, Don't hit your self too hard. I've been here all winter and I haven't flown my Champ since November. I have flown, but not the Champ. Our runway gets plowed right down to the grass so ski's don't work, and I have about 300 feet to plow by truck or blow by a walk behind blower, which isn't any ...

Re: Headliner & interior

I installed an Airtex Off-White two-way stretch Vinyl headliner in my Champ. I also did the Skylight and the Extended Baggage, so I ordered a Citabria Headliner and an extra yard of headliner material. Being it was one of the first things I put into my Champ, I rolled the fueslage upside down and la...

Re: Strum, Wisconsin

Mike,

Thanks for a very nice fly-in. The pancakes were huge. Filled the whole plate.
Nice weather, smooth flights, and I even sat across from a nice couple that knew some of the same people I do, and we live over 100 miles apart. Small world.
Thanks again, :D

Re: Manufacturing - How'd they Build Our Airplanes?

Mike,

You have seen my Champ, and I did not used an envelope.
I covered the bottom of the fuselage first, and then sewed two pieces
of fabric together and laid the sewn seam on one of the top stringers.
Yes, you can see it, but you almost have to know it's there to see it.

I filled the tanks with auto fuel and a few days later started to do the Annual inspection. I went for parts and it turned into a 80 degree day. The cool fuel expanded, came out of the...
