  2. All, For those of you that display your aircraft and receive Tax Exemption please know that your local Assessor should be sending you your usual form along with instructions to still maintain your exempt status this this COVID period. I’m in Ventura and I’ve also seen San Diego Assessors supplied information to aid you to keep this status since all Airshows and gatherings were cancelled or not scheduled. stay safe chris Nehus

  4. Chris - What a great welcoming message! I am really excited to join the “Ryan Ranks” and plug away on my project! I will certainly take you up on the offer of advice and free airplane parts! (Maybe I imagined that 2nd offer?! 🙂 ) If your warm note is any indicator of the type of people who associate with the -22, then I have joined a quality group to be sure! Thank so much, and...MERRY CHRISTMAS! Rico PS - That pic is breath-taking!
  5. Welcome Rico, You can find a bunch of good info within this site to aid your project. I’ve had my PT22 for 30 plus years and it was a project much like yours. It took two years of steady work to return her to flying condition and I’ve really never stoped improving her to this day. I am happy to help answer your maintenance questions when you get stuck. Parts are getting hard to come by, but if you really need it we will do our best to support you. These aircraft are a labor of love, it takes many hours to complete a project like your. I find it helps to set goals for yourself and look at it as a lot of smaller projects. Best Chris Nehus, N53271 Camarillo, CA KCMA cnehus@verizon.net Ryanpt22@gmail.com 818-825-4252 cell
  6. Greetings! My name is Rico Jaeger. I'm in Wausau, WI (AUW) and recently purchased a collection of Ryan parts from a party in NC. The negotiations began over a year ago - with a deal struck soon thereafter. But C19 delayed the retrieval. So finally, over Thanksgiving weekend, I made the 2500 mile round trip and 4-hour pack-up (in 56 hours!) to collect my prize! The seller was extremely gracious with his time and materials in assisting with the loading, and I'm happy to say it arrived back in Central WI with nary a scratch! (Despite some of the roughest, toughest "warzone" roads I have EVER driven in IL and OH!) The project is better than many that I have started with, however - everything except the stub wings is in-need of partial / complete rebuild. I have prior experience with similar airframes (PT-26 / Stearman) but those had thorough government documentation. I am struggling to find drawings. (I've had several people suggest San Diego Air & Space, but they charge $15 / page and there are hundreds of pages.) I am also in-need of some parts, paperwork and CONSIDERABLE technical guidance in "Getting My Ryan Flyin'!" If you feel like earning your angel's wings, I can be reached directly at: Rocknpilot@hotmail.com / 715.529.7426. I look very forward to "meeting" you all and pushing forward on this exciting project! (Mostly after our 7-month Winter! :-/) THANK YOU!
  7. Terry and Kent in GA hold the STC. I believe the emails in the attached are correct.
  8. Am looking for a contact for the Ryan Ranger STC.
  9. Down to my last one 11/06/2020....$250.00 plus 8.30 ship chris Nehus
  10. update: they are all sold! Chris. I have a few flap actuator pawls which are the same as original Ryan units. These were made to the exact specifications, And material from the original Ryan drawing. I’ve installed one on my aircraft and it works great, my flaps have never worked this good! They are now reliable for the first time after 30+ years. I now get all 6 pumps of flaps each and every time, even at max flap speed of 100 MPH. These are not cheep, poor quality, soft, incorrect material units. They were manufactured by an Aerospace machinist to exact tolerance. This is a high ware item, everyone should have a spare. I will NOT be making more....when they are gone that’s it! I kept 3 spares for myself so I don’t have to go thru this again. Chris Nehus Ryanpt22@gmail.com cnehus@verizon.net
  11. Order has been placed two weeks ago....delivery expected within two weeks. I have 2 or 3 pawls still available at the direct cost pricing of 195.00 each. Once delivered cost will be 300.00 each. Email me if interested, cnehus@verizon.net or Ryanpt22@gmail.com
  12. all sold out! I’m working on getting some c1651 flap pawls made. Don’t know cost yet...the more we order the cheeper they get. If your flaps won’t extend in flight , it’s most likely this pawl is worn. Let me know if interested. ********pricing is 195.00 per unit with a minimum production run of 20 which is my cost. If interested let me know soon. If you miss this preorder price offer and I tie up my funds pricing will be 300.00 per unit. ******** This is a high wear item, I’m keeping 3 for myself. Units will be manufactured to original Ryan specification from original Ryan drawing.******* chris nehus cnehus@verizon.net

  14. Hello all, I am a new joiner. Not lucky enough to own an ST, yet, but unlucky enough to be rebuilding a Menasco. We are nearing the end of this long drawn out journey and we are getting down the nitty gritty. My engine is a hybrid race motor that was factory assembled with a mixed bag of B-4, B-6, and C-4 parts and there in lies the problem. I am looking for a picture or a factory drawing of the early style two hole exhaust gasket. We have reproduced all of the other gaskets, but we don’t know what the thickness and or composition of the exhaust was. I’m also looking for various other trinkets that we can make, but originals would be nice. My Menasco has a 4.5” bore, so if anybody has some strange looking cylinder parts laying around that are Menasco but don’t have a 4.75” bore, then I would be extremely happy to talk with you. We have already exhausted the “normal” source for Menasco parts so we are looking elsewhere. Thanks in advance for your help. Karl, Mike, and Ike
  15. Hi, do you still have the stainless steel flying wires and are they in mint condition? Thanks a lot Rolf luftakrobat@icloud.com

    Gone West

    It is with the greatest sorrow that I need to post this. My long time friend who I thought of as my Father, Angelo Regina passed away today. He was a long time Ryan owner who stuck with me, looking out for me no matter what stupid thing I did. Me made me a better person, and Pilot. He flew 747 for Tigers and later Federal Express, but loved his PT22. Angelo befriended me when I was a young man with fours hours of Ryan time under my belt. We all met at Santa Paula Airport for the flight to the Annual Ryan Reunion flight to Paso Robles. Back then. It was a meeting of 15 to 25 Ryan’s for a weekend of fun and food. I was the youngest and newest member and many did not give me the time of day as they had seen “ my type “ come and go. Angelo took me under his wing from that day on. We became Father and Son, where you found one of us the other was by his side. We shared his hanger at Camarillo Airport where we enjoyed our aircraft and each other for the past 20 plus years and were family. Angelo is one of the most giving persons I have ever had the pleasure of being part of my life. Most did not get to known him as I did....he put up a bit of a front with strangers. He always told me to “ Watch out for the winnies, they will kill you! “. My first real exposure to formation flight was under his watchful eye, flying his wing. He would look over and give me a grin as his finger would signal me to get closer and closer followed by a smile of confidence. He had great pride in me and I the greatest respect for him. He held on to his Ryan until a couple of months ago. I had the pleasure of delivering it for him to his Brother Pete Regina at Van Nuys who shipped it to Germany for its next adventure. This bond between us would have never transpired if not for the Ryan PT22 and two men, their love of aviation, adventure, food, and friendship. Angelo will alway be my instructor in my front seat along for every flight. My Weight and Balance as been amended to reflect this change. We will both be looking out for the winnies! I promised Angelo years ago when the time came I would spread his ashes, anyone interested in joining let me know and I will update you when details develop. chris nehus cnehus@verizon.net N53271
