Re: Sedan Shoulder Harnesses Revisited

Hi Doug I am glad, you bring this up, since I hesitate to cut the intact headliner on my Sedan, too. At the same time, I would really like to have shoulder harnesses. The photo in the below link might give you an idea for a totally different solution. If a diagonal belt is good enough for you, an in...

Re: LED or HID Landing & Taxi Lights?

No, Richard, I have not done any modifications to my Whelen LEDs, yet. My complacency is part due to the fact that there was no condensation ever, during the entire summer flying season. It definitely only forms, when the outside temperatures drop. But I am still hoping myself to get some feedback f...

Re: LED or HID Landing & Taxi Lights?

But attention: These are the smaller PAR36 size. Only a larger PAR46 size LED will be a direct replacement without modification of the Sedan's lamp mounts.

Re: N1120H goes back to Canada

Arash

Now that is great news! Thank you for the pictures and update.
How about visiting the new owners and asking them, if they let you try out the Sedan on skis yourself?

Re: Queen of the Berry Patch

Yes, rather a maiden flight on a sunny Spring day than a bent plane, now. Or maybe you could borrow a set of skis from someone?

Len Kahny, 103, Former Aeronca Employee, Passes Away

Dear friends and Aeronca community, Ed Malkowicz, Len Kahny's son-in-law, just sent me the sad news and asked me to share it with you. Len last attended the 2014 Aeronca convention. In Brian Matz's panoramic photo, he can be seen in his wheelchair, front row, center. He was such a gentle, sunny char...

After a lengthy warm up period and some of the normal pretakeoff engine checks, I taxied her about 250 yards from a friends hangar to the A & P wh...
