    I am headed to Michigan August 2nd.  Will drive down and take a look.  Can you measure the wings and tell me length?  Also center to center measurement for spars.  I want to see if it will fit an AVID C Model.  I believe Catalina wings are longer.  Personal message me and I will give you my phone number.
    Thanks

    Are these wings longer than the wings for an AVID C Model?  Will the spars line up for a C Model?

    LOL.  That would not be a good time if I was there.  It happened a couple days before I arrived.  I was the first one there and walked up to the cabin.  The hair stood up on the back of my neck because all I had at the time was bear spray.  We spotted the grizzly later on the side of the mountain looking straight at us.  A little erie to say the least.

    VG's on the flaperon
    Good Morning,
    Wondering if anyone has tried VG's on the flaperon and if any benefit resulted.  I am not an aero expert so this may be a dumb suggestion to start with. Just a thought.

    Mountain Flying Alaska Mens Retreat
    Had a good time this year at Men's Retreat.  A grizzly broke into the cabin.  Saw lots of caribou, moose, and the grizzly.  The video is 11 minutes with a landing at gold mine at the end.

    GDL Safety
    I have a Garmin 795 with GDL installed in aircraft.  If another aircraft has a GDL installed their position will show up on my 795.  Last week I was flying around Mat-su valley and my 795 alerts me that an aircraft is headed towards me at 90 degrees.  I looked to my left and lo their it was.  I adjusted altitude and continued on my merry way and it passed underneath me. Personally I think all aircraft should be equipped with this type of safety feature.  Sometimes its impossible to see another aircraft in vicinity.  600 to 800 bucks for a GDL is cheap safety.

    20 Mile Runway
    In the Matsu Valley we have a 20 mile abandoned railroad construction that stretches through pristine wilderness for about 20 miles.  Great for practicing take off and landing's without interruptions.  Great place to see moose and the occasional bear.

    Whats the differences you see that make the AVID more fun.  I have considered going to larger bush plane but have no experience in one.
