In Your Own Words

A new engine brings performance beyond all expectations
By Deborah A. McFarland
From The Southern Aviator, Jan 2003

It's hard to pinpoint when and why I decided Lester needed an overhaul.  His annual inspection detected goo compressions.  He maintained great oil pressure and my records indicated modest oil consumption.  But a C-85 with more than 3,000 hours since new and 1,900 SMOH lacks something vital to pilots who like shorter fields or who need to haul weight:  performance.

   The hot, humid days of summer, with Boonie as my passenger, left me more times than not chanting, "I think I can.  I think I can," as we wallowed off the runway.  And subconsciously I avoided some of our favorite haunts in favor of locations with longer runways or no obstacles.
   In all fairness, the performance of my C-85 was not bad when compaired to other airplanes.  But I don't fly other airplanes.  I fly a Luscombe 8E and I wanted to leap over tall buildings in a single bound.
