Need new battery in the Cessna 180

The old one is 6 years old and getting tired (concorde AXC 35) but has been very reliable. Wondering if there is something else out there just as good but lighter and perhaps a bit less expensive? :-)

Thanks

Re: Digital Artificial Horizon

Re: Digital Artificial Horizon

If I wanted to get rid of the vacuum pump, DG and AH altogether, would I need to get two Garmin G5 units (one showing AH and one used as DG) or is one enough toggling back and forth as needed?

Hello there

My aviation medical expires Dec 22 of this year (Private over 40 years old) and I can't get an appointment until January 9th. Any consequences I should know about if I wait until the following month to get it do? I don't fly in the winter.

Re: Digital Artificial Horizon

Can I get the experimental Garmin G5 version instead of the SCT'ed one in my Cessna 180 and restrict the flying to Day VFR only? $ 1000.00 difference between the two versions and exactly the same hardware/software!

Corrosion on floats

Hello folks

Pulled the plane out of the lake for the winter. Looks like there is a bit of corrosion on the floats. What is the best way to scrape it off ? Very light sand paper? What sort of anti corrosion stuff should I apply on the floats after?

Re: YZF Float rating ?

Try the NWT floatplane association. You should be able to google their website. That would be a good start. One of their member might be able to assist.

I am assuming you have tried the commercial pilots with Tindi or summit air?

Should be doable I would think.
