Flymall April 2017 Newsletter

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

Welcome to our April 2017 Newsletter.

We have a very nice Cessna 182 for sale. Click here for details.

Lot’s of women aviators in the news this month.

We start with one of Harry’s students, Francesca D.  Harry arranged for a friend to take her flying in his 1930’s Davis open cockpit aircraft at W73.


This picture says it all. This was taken just after she landed. Needless to say she had a great time.



Click here for Harry’s Flickr set with all of the pictures and video from the day with Francesca at the Mid Atlantic Soaring Center.

Here is Harry’s YouTube video with all of the pictures and video from the day at the Mid Atlantic Soaring Center.

Our next female aviator in the news is Lin Caywood.

Volunteer Pilot Malinda Caywood also helped our PAL, patient Ronnie get to treatment from his home in North Carolina to Cancer Treatment Center of America. It sometimes take more than one leg to get from point A to point B and we are grateful for her!

Thanks Malinda!

Harry sold Lin this wonderful Cessna 182 pictured below.  This was the last plane Harry sold as a Cessna dealer.



A Facebook find. Imagine waking up in the morning to find a Rolls Royce in your pool.



Harry is always on the lookout for rare and unusual vehicles (especially 3 wheelers). Here is a Facebook find.  A very rare Lamborghini 1C roadable crawler. It has 3 wheels plus tracks.


More women aviators in the news.  Congratulations to Sugarloaf member Brenda Tibbs ! Brenda is the recipient of an Amelia Earhart Scholarship!!!!!


Brenda was also named AOPA’s best flight instructor. Brenda is the owner of Bravo Aviation based at the Frederick Municipal Airport.  Harry is a long time friend of Brenda and he has helped her and her customers over the years.  Glad to see that she is doing great in her new business.




The Flymall team was at the annual Antique Tractor and Steam Engine Show in Derwood Maryland.  Harry has done a few appraisals on some of the vehicles (classic cars & antique tractors) in the show.  Click here for information on our appraisals. 

All data from Harry’s appraisals is entered into the Market Watch section of our site. This is a searchable database designed by Harry.  Posted here is actual sale prices, appraised values, asking price, etc. The database is searchable by any combination of Make, Model, and Year.

To view examples of appraisals that Harry has done, visit our newsletter section and search for appraisal. A few examples are posted here as well.

Instrument Checkride April 2017 KTHV

Sunday, April 30th, 2017


Asked about basic instrument knowledge, started from the ACS. Such as

  • Minimum fuel required
  • Minimum equipment
  • Currency vs. Proficiency
  • Lost Comms
  • Accepting clearance and comply

He also asked these questions from a scenario perspective instead of directly.

For example, minimum takeoff in IMC for part 91 None, so instead show your personal minimums.

“If weather is below instrument approach minimums at the airport I am taking off from, I won’t go. “


The Oral was relaxed. He also taught me somethings.

Not many G1000 questions. Mostly questions about pitot-static system, instruments. Vacuum system, Icing.



ILS 08 KCXY. Missed: L 290, 3,000ft, then Direct HAR
