Culver General Discussion / Display Your Actual Name on the Forum
« on: January 04, 2012, 08:06:40 PM »
It has been suggested that this forum will be a lot more beneficial to everyone, if we use our actual name for the displayed name.  We will all profit if the Culver community is one where everyone knows one another.  While you cannot change your username, the name you display on the forum can be edited under: Profile-Account Settings-Name

Culver General Discussion / Landing gear-down lights
« on: January 04, 2012, 04:34:21 PM »
Does anyone have an approved 337 form and drawings for gear-down lights for a Cadet?  A number of Cadets have lights on the panel to indicate that the gear is locked in the down position.  I think this is a very valuable addition that would be of great benefit to all Cadets. 

Documentation / Certificate of Airworthiness

Have you checked out your Certificate of Airworthiness?  Prior to about 1956, the FAA issued a new C of A at the annual inspection each year.  At that point they transitioned to having IA's do the inspections and made the C of A's a permanent document.  When this program was first implemented, the existing form ACA-1362 was modified by crossing out the word EXPIRE and adding the wording "REMAIN IN EFFECT AS LONG AS THE AIRCRAFT IS MAINTAINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH PART 43".   This form is no longer legal.  Your FSDO will exchange it for the current form 8100-2.  I've placed an example on the Culver Cadet home page.

The problem comes when your form ACA-1362 C of A is missing.  The odds are really good that there is no evidence that the modified form ACA-1362 was ever issued.  If you can't prove that the aircraft ever had a permanent C of A issued, the FAA wil require a new Conformity Inspection and Application for Airworthiness.  Depending on the workload of your local FAA Inspector, you may have to pay to have an FAA Designee do the work.

If anyone has an issue with their C of A, give me a call and I'll relate my experiences.
