Re: How to value a DA20

The quickest way to never have a shot at this plane is to offer them 25K. Even if it needs an engine, that’s like 24K installed.. The plane is worth between 65-75 with a new engine.

Re: Grease coming from Hartzell Prop

I had this happen on a Hartzell.. It’s either the seal or the hub typically.. If it was just overserviced with grease it would stop after a flight or two.. Such a PITA!

Re: Theoretical Situation: Forced approach and Nose over

It's the "just above the water surface" that I'm assuming I can't rely on being able to judge properly, thereby running the risk of hitting the water with too much forward speed. Maybe way too much. So sometime on the way down I'm slowing to just above stall and don't worry about vertical speed at ...

Re: Theoretical Situation: Forced approach and Nose over

Still not sure I follow ya, but I will say this.. We practiced this a lot when I flew P-3’s and the Navy has done extensive research into how to successfully ditch a plane. Wings level, minimum rate of descent of slowest practical speed, without stalling, are what they came up with. Granted in this ...

Re: Theoretical Situation: Forced approach and Nose over

The key to doing this successfully would be absolute minimum airspeed and rate of descent , wings level, when the gear hits the water. I would do it in a normal landing attitude. I think the airplane would be less likely to flip nose over, then cartwheel, if you landed in a bank with one gear grabb...
