Re: Is this the oldest flying aircraft in Canada?

I have time in two Canadian registered airplanes built in 1929, though like any machine of that age they had both been restored. It would be disappointing to know that was the high score, surely there's something older than 1929 flying in this country. I own the title ,logs and paperwork for a 1917...

Totally a political statement meant to send a message to the US
I doubt our Gov is actually considering this.

Re: to inhibit?

Mineral oil actually sticks to the engine internals (creates a varnish like coating ) and in turn protects the engine if it sits dormant for long periods Detergent oils clean the internal(hence the name) by not sticking to but falling off the internals .

Re: to inhibit?

If your aircraft flies infrequently, you should be using straight mineral oil with Camguard mixed in .
And please ....don't start any of that 'mineral oil is for breaking in an engine only" BS
That is simply not true.
