Re: What do you call that switch thingy?

Pretty sure you are looking for a relay, although a transistor has similar functionality as a switch. Typically a relay uses a relatively low voltage (ie 12v) to switch a higher voltage circuit on or off.

Well, I'm looking at an entry level/first airplane. The I would love to be able to afford something with a little more capability like a super decathalon or spitfite but $$$ is a factor! I am a cpl so not for training, more for practice. I have had a great deal of spin training but am nervous about...

Re: Cherokee spins?

Could one potentially "push the paperwork" on a scout, perhaps by somehow certifying it at a lower gw, thus allowing a higher g loading? Or is that a type certificate thing?

Sorry for the naivete! Just learning over here...

Re: Cherokee spins?

I will be attacked for this, but before you do acro in a Citabria, please inspect the wooden spar very, very carefully for cracking, esp around the strut pickup. I strongly recommend replacing the wings with the much more rigid metal wings. It is very difficult to do acro in a Citabria, which is re...

Re: Cherokee spins?

Carb, I'm a little curious why you want an airplane rated for spins. Are you planning on having it for PPL training? I don't really see any other reason to need a plane that is rated for spinning. Don't get me wrong, when (and where) I was doing my PPL, spins weren't considered "OMFG! Spins are kil...

Ok thanks ifp, I was browsing planes for sale and there seemed to be a great deal on a particular Cherokee in Alberta. I don't think I would want to purchase an aircraft that wasn't rated for spins.
