About 80% of general aviation aircraft fly using Lycoming engines. Clearing the trees at the end of the runway. Leaving 4500ft for 6500ft. Maintaining airflow and generating lift across the wings. All are impossible without a reliable engine. Lycoming powers my training aircraft and so fuels my quest for a private pilot certificate. This blog is a record of my thoughts and experiences on life, flight, and learning.

Changed my timing belt for the 2nd time. The ATQ/AHQ engine on this 2000 B5 Passat V6 is definitely showing its age, because I replaced a lot of bolts that I didn't replace the last time around. Here's to hoping that the Green Stickermobile makes it another 80,000miles! Back off, Obama! This is one clunker that's going to keep on clunking!
