N5524H Back in Service
The 182 is finally back in service.  Ithas flown approximately 10 hoursthrough the break-in and willcontinue to need breaking in.The aircraft is consuming about 1 to2 quarts of oil per 5 hours of flyingand needs to be monitored closelyby all pilots.  The oil that is beingused is a
Mineral Oil, 20W 50
andALL pilots need to watch thisclosely.  DO NOT put standard oil inthe engine until break-in iscomplete.  The lack of, or thesignificant decline in, oilconsumption usually verifies break-in completion.Please, when purchasing gasoline,order 2 quarts of mineral oil so thatwe will have ample supply to get usthrough.
Tighten That Pattern
When I learned to fly in 1973, I wastaught to fly nice square tightpatterns at ALL airports, controlledand especially uncontrolled fields.Now some 29 years later, I noticehow pilots seem to be capable of screwing up pattern flying withoutany federal assistance at all and theproblem seems to be getting worseevery year. Some pilots I guess getcomplacent about leaving, entering,navigating through, and finallylanding with good judgement.Bluntly, tight patterns are moreefficient and, by degree, safer because aircraft on the ground canactually see airplanes in the patternrather than guessing where they arebased on vague radio calls.Try these idea’s next time you flyyour proficiency flight:1. Enter the airport traffic pattern
AT
not above or below the TPA.2. Keep your downwind leg within¼ mile of the intended runway.3. Apply carb heat, pull the power to idle and start the turn to basewhen your downwind intersectsa 45 degree line from therunway numbers or the point of intended touchdown.4. Make note of your DG and keepyour pattern square

DO:
Keep the pattern as tight aspractical. Airspeed is critical.
Use every turn from downwindto base as an airspeed controlexercise.
Truly learn to spot land withoutpower.
DON’T:
Always drag it in from a mile out.
Be intimidated by patternbullies.
Make a fool of yourself onUnicom by calling out vaguepositions.
Aircraft Rental Rates Modified

Common SenseLeaning Guidelines
Part 2 in a series
2Lt. Jeff Huber, Aircraft Manager 
Peak EGT
Peak EGT occurs when air and fuelare present in precisely the correctchemical balance. The greatest heatrelease occurs at this mixturesetting, and as a result CHT is proneto be high.The power delivered to thecrankshaft is less than at peak-power EGT, because the amount of gas involved in combustion is lessand combustion is shifted late.The chief advantage of operating atpeak EGT is increased fueleconomy. Specific fuel consumption(lbs/hr/hp) at peak EGT is on theorder of 20% lower than at bestpower.A secondary benefit of peak EGTcombustion is that it leaves very fewcombustion by-products. The oilremains uncontaminated for alonger 
 
period and the combustionchamber, including spark plugs, willtend to stay cleaner, longer.Unfortunately, exhaust systemtemperatures as a whole are high,and detonation protection is at it’slowest at peak EGT.  Both factorscan be important for high outputengines.When in doubt, use the new engineanalyzer, and all should go well.
Fly Safely!
  
Group 5 Web Site
2Lt. Steve Taylor, Public AffairsOfficer 
If you haven’t had a chance to lookthrough the Group 5 web site, you’remissing out on a useful “resource”for yourself.There are several CAP web sitesavailable to us with many resourcesin each.  Although useful, this canbe very overwhelming, particularlyfor new members, when trying toquickly locate forms, information, or events.I have attempted to consolidate theaccess links to many of the moreregularly used features of thesesites in an area called the“Resources” page on the currentGroup 5 web site.This feature will be called “Member Resources” on the new site, due outin late January.This page is designed to save youvaluable time on the web by
