Owen, a friend of yours?

Interesting article on homemade parts ("owner supplied"), which apparently are OK as long as you don't sell them.

Interesting article on homemade parts ("owner supplied"), which apparently are OK as long as you don't sell them.

A&P/IA Kristin Winter explains FAR 21.9 and Advisory Circular No. 23-27 for owners who are looking to keep their aircraft maintenance costs in line. THE FAA keeps an iron grip on the supply of approved replacement parts for Type Certificated aircraft. Replacement parts generally must come from t...

What’s it doing now?!!!

With all the new gee whiz electronics in our club's planes, its important to keep looking out the widows; not at the cartoons as Joe would say. Here's a nice little read from our friends at the FAA on the topic.

General information

It was a group of Civil Air Patrol members who founded the Congressional Flying Club in the late 1940's. (To this day, the flying club continues to be associated with the Civil Air Patrol through the Montgomery Senior Squadron at Montgomery County Airpark.) When Congressional Airport was closed to make way for the shopping center in 1956, the Congressional Flying Club and Civil Air Patrol squadron moved out to Davis Airport in Laytonsville Maryland (W50). A few years later, they moved to the new Montgomery County Airpark where the club and CAP squadron still thrive today. Today the Congressional Flying Club and Montgomery Senior Squadron are still very active and vibrant organizations. Many members participate in the monthly fly-ins to interesting destinations. The majority of the club's planes make the annual journey to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the mecca of American General Aviation, for the AirVenture air show. And you can always find a quorum of members after our weekly meetings at a designated restaurant sharing the infamous "there I was at 12,000 feet" hangar stories.

Attention, CFC members! I have a used Flight Gear bag from Sporty's Pilot Shop that I no longer use -- it's free to a good home, but you have to pick it up. The bag is bright red; it's 20+ years old but in good condition. I will be in Hagerstown temporarily starting Monday, January 13. First to PM me gets the bag.
