N5167A


N5167A is currently owned by Larry Church of New Mexico.  He has about 70 hours on the aircraft and has most of the bugs worked out now.  He did install a streerable tailwheel for ground handling purposes.   Larry confesses that his former partner/ builder did the work..."kind of like flying a snowplow."  Of course we believe him.

Cruise is about 80 MPHIAS and stalls below 40.  With the AS needle below the "40" mark, actual stall is pretty low.    The power-off stall is just a "big mush" but the the vertical speed in the downward direction is high.
