AD Post Feed to Twitter

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

It seems that our Blog to Twitter feed has not been working and is a frustrating issue. We are working on fixing it and hope to have it finished soon, however our RSS feed still works great so in the meantime keep up with the latest AD’s and FAA bulletins through our RSS feed. What2fly.com

Houston we fixed the problem!

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Apparently the scroll to ‘Older’ and/or ‘Newer’ post was not working, who knew?! Well not us until now, but it is fixed! I don’t think a lot of people used that, they usually just search for AD’s and stuff, but it works now.  Thanks for not letting us know.  Hey we always welcome feedback and need it as our site continues to grow and with 1,300 + aircraft we want to make sure we have it right.

Please send us your feedback, operating cost info, performance data and even your pics of your favorite plane or home built baby!

Happy Flying!

Operating Cost and Performance Data Updates

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

Over the last several weeks we have been working diligently to add more operating cost data. This is a tedious and time consuming task and we are committing as much time as possible to this task. We have done our best to find the OEM parts when available and if it is not or it is obsolete we had used the closest replacement or STC part for the aircraft.

Many aircraft just don’t have parts for them anymore and the engine may just have to be rebuild by a mechanic and/or STC’d and replaced with something else so for those aircraft we generally will leave the status as updating, because it could be anyone’s guess as to what the actual replacement, overhaul or budget number should be on a 40-50 year old aircraft that has to have its engine rebuilt or overhauled as a ‘one time’ scenario. However, there are usually several other models that are similar to that ‘one plane’ that have the upgraded or STC’d engine, propeller or other parts and you can get a close estimate by reviewing or comparing those models.

Thanks again for using our site we hope it is useful and we hope to be finished by Jan 31, 2011. Happy New Year for What2fly.com! Start your search/comparison Click Here!
