    Your CFI should sign off your flight review in your logbook and his. The only takeoff and
    landing requirements are for passenger currency, although a flight review during which you
    didn't log any take...

    I don't see a certificate number on the glue on sheet. I see a serial number for the engine.

    He did not include his certificate number, so it probably won't fly with the FAA as a logbook

    That sounds like the kind of thing I'd go look at a '46 J3 for.

    I like these photos because they were taken in the winter of 1945. The Battle of the Bulge
    winter. 43rd MR&RS was the squadron that serviced 3rd Army L birds. By 1945 all the bomber

    Originals come up so infrequently that it's hard to set a price. I have seen them go in the
    $200-$250 range. Closer to $150 if they are missing parts like the brace or the extender. The
    problem is fin...

    I sent him info about the Cub Club prints, as well as an E&M Manual and some photos. Should get
    him started anyway.

    If you fly because you love it, speed doesn't matter. Time matters. I would rather spend an
    hour going 70 miles than half the time going twice as fast.

    Thanks Glenn, I couldn't say.

Dear AOP,
Quick question...
L-4 being advertised on TAP and Barnstormers.
Serial number 9400 N9095C
Seller says the AAF number is 43-539,
however Joe Baughter's list does not show 539.
It is painted as a NE-1 and broker makes reference
that it could have Naval history.
Looking for a suggestion on my next step to
try and authenticate.
(the selling broker is on the Reno Air Museum
Board of Directors. You would think he would
have this groundwork all done).
Thanks for any assistance.
and a Memorial Day "thank you for your service"!

Joe Baugher only has what records he can find or can get from current owners. It was my understanding that all Navy NE-1s were stock J3s. It is possible that the owner was in the Navy or just wanted to paint the airplane as a Navy bird. I would get the fuselage frame number from him and then go to Clyde Smith for the build sheet. That will tell you what it really is. Don't assume anything and treat him like a used car salesman.
