Re: Speed Sensor Assembly - help

STATUS OF DISCOVERY AVIATION

I just have one question for those in the know here. If the Plane Certificate is surrendered or lost by Discovery...does that mean all of our planes become unflyable ( not legally flyable) or do we simply continue to operate as before .....and have to scrounge up parts...??

Re: Fuel pressure issues causing Fadec Warning

I have found that what happens is the 10 micron filter slowly becomes clogged.....it has no visible dirt etc...but simply clogs over time. It takes about 300 flight hours usually to have this happen.
