    When I was a young/poor aviator in Alaska we used to use skateboards with Teflon bolted/laminated to the bottom, then retro-fitted of course.
    Now you can buy used snowboards very inexpensively and they  make great skis...  Ron

    Thanks for your advice.  I'm going to resist the urge to teach myself!  Do you know of an instructor near Florence Oregon?  It's central oregon coast.  Ron

    First Flight in Avid / Speeds/ Temps???
    Hi, I just bought an Avid Mark IV with a 582 and am about to make take my first flight.  I've been doing a lot of taxiing since I don't have any tail-wheel time and am comfortable so far.  
    Can anyone tell me what the operating temps should read, CH and water temp?  Also What should my approach speed be for landing and flare?  What is the stall speed?
    The previous owner said he flew by "feel" and never looked at the gauges.  
    Thanks
