Hi Jerry,

Thanks for the information on the VG's. After reading your comments and info from other pilots I will give this serious consideration over the winter.

Thanks!  It's great to find more local Zodiac builders and pilots!

I am looking for some local flying clubs to get more active in the east valley area.  CHD, FFZ, Pegasus...

Any thoughts?

Hello, Jerry

A while back (September?) you got a set of Azusa tires.

How has been your experience so far?

Hi Jerry,

If the camera is mounted on the rudder - are you running a cable all the way from your headset jack, out the canopy and to the camera mounted on the rudder?  Do you have a picture of this set up? Thanks for the info on the polishing.  After the holidays is fine...I am at my hangar a lot during the weekends.  I can also be out there during the week any time with advance notice.  I am lucky enough to work from home and for the most part, set my own hours. I will be gone from Jan 13-19 though on business.  Would love to meet up before then.

Hey Jerry...

Had fun flying to SEZ today.  Was the flight out as uneventful as we hoped?

I reached out to the APA president (Jim Tims)  and he has a Jab 3300 in his plane.

Do you knowthe guys name or contact info in Fountain hills?

I have the same cowl you have and the same problem in the same attitudes. However, the highest temp I seen was 230 but my outside air temp might have been 85. Everything sounds right when comparing our two situations. Thanks for the response.

Jerry - What was the temp when you say "high oil temps"? - Chris

Congratulations on the first flight! I learned a lot from my visit with you last winter and your plane was well done! Have a wonderful time flying off those hours!.

Chandler Arizona Airport Damage

Posted on August 13, 2015 at 6:40pm 3 Comments

On the night of August 11th at about 9:30 PM a strong storm hit the Chandler Airport.  30 planes were damaged or destroyed.  Aircraft parts were littering the ramp.  I saw radios, fiberglass wing tips, seat belts, nose gear with wheel, etc.  One of the flight schools lost all 6 planes that it had stationed at KCHD.  One was thrown about 50 yards and over a fence into the parking lot.

Several of the planes still had the tie down chains attached to their wings.  Either the…
