Re: Tail documents

Thanks for sharing, Joe. Regardless of bias as it relates to the CT model, this information is enlightening towards understanding design philosophies and aerodynamic behaviours.

Re: vortex generators

@Gfarley08 or anyone else having installed VGs. Can you please offer guidance on how far back from the leading edge you chose to install them? Stoll-Speed suggests 10%-12%of the chord line. I have the Micro VG kit which provides a ruler but it was designed for planes that they’ve STC’d. They’ve sugg...

Re: Legacy nose gear collapsing - other misc tips

$2700. Well worth it and highly recommended. The old one will literally snap. You’ll find preemptively replacing it will be cheaper than suffering a bent prop and ending going through a sudden stoppage inspection!

Re: Increased MGW

Thanks for sharing the attachment. Is there an archive of these newsletters somewhere? I'd be interesting in learning more. I purchased a POH from Darrell Peterson but it's rather generic. Historical details like this can lend insight into certain problems the S90 faced or other options available to...

Increased MGW

Good morning. I read this sentence in another post "increased gross weight of 3200lb up from 2895lb only came with the upgrade from the fiberglass main gear." Can anyone shed some light on this? I have an S90 but didn't build it; I'm the 3rd owner. The data plate indicates MGW is 2895#. The previous...

Re: Tire pressure

After digging around, I found the following.

Nose wheel -- 50 psi
Mains -- 42 psi

I hope this helps the next person scouring for such information.

Tire pressure

Hi guys,

Any recommendations on tire pressure for nose wheel and mains? I checked the POH and the conditional inspection docs, but I haven’t had success finding this. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
Roger

Re: Buying my 1st express.

I've got a Series 90 Express with an IO-360. I rarely carry full inboard and outboard tanks; full inboard alone gives me 50 G. Flying with another pilot, we typically cross the fence at 90 KTS for stability, slow to 75-80 KTS right before runway threshold and flare at 70-75 KTS. My plane becomes inc...
