Re: Champ wing tanks

Lifting a full tank and reinstalling it every time you fuel up I would think would be as dangerous if not more than fueling from an approved container. I agree you should do some more checking with the airport. The reason I did the modification was not to be able to take the tank in and out all the ...

Re: Champ wing tanks

I would imagine that they could be rigged in that way. If you can carry filled tanks to your plane, why could you not bring filled legal fuel containers to it and dump the fuel in? It would seem an easier fix. When my wing tank in my 7CCM started acting up, I had it removed and repaired. When it was...

Re: Determining Champ Value

Who will be showing it for you? If it was mine, I would get it back in annual and then determine the value.

Re: Convert Champ to Sport Pilot

It would be nice if the FAA would get their act together and set some guidelines that are well defined and easily understood. Now that BasicMed is available (though for many not easy to accomplish) I think some of the pressure has been taken off. My Chief came from the Factory as an 11AC. Put in a D...

Re: Convert Champ to Sport Pilot

ICON got an exemption in MGW in return for ICON adding Anti-Spin equipment to the ICON. Having flown one, I have no interest in one of those at any price.

Re: Convert Champ to Sport Pilot

If you haven't already, get yourself a copy of the FAA CD for your plane (a great $10.00 investment) and see what documents are already on file for your plane. A 7EC is a problem, where the 7DC and the optional MGW increase is the one thing that usually screwed up those planes for being Light Sport....

Re: New member

Hey Benjamin, Welcome to the Forum. I had my 7CCM on EDO 1400s and than with the STC on 1320s, which turned out to be a super combination, but I had the best overall performance with 1400s on my Chief with the Don's Dream machine engine. www.SeaplanePilot.com is coming back on line and there are man...
