This information is not kept in a centralized public database. Manufacturers will also be unlikely to be able to answer such a query because they don't normally keep track of the transactions in which the ownership of the engine changes hands, except maybe indirectly if the engine has been under a continuous maintenance contract with them. I also doubt they ...

The analytical formula for the stagnation pressure is : Stagnation Pressure (P) = Static Pressure (pst) + 1/2density v^2 for incompressible flow. The point where the fluid is in rest is the point where stagnation pressure = static pressure (P =pst), because the kinetic energy of the fluid is 0. For compressible flows you can calculate the ratio of Stagnation/...

That's where they fit! On both the original 172 and the Piper designs the "center console" area is where the flap bar is mounted, thus preventing the throttle from going there. The C172 has since moved to electric flaps but did not relocate the throttle in the process. Piper has retained that flap bar on its PA-28 series it still produces to this ...

No need for the usual floats. Floats obviously add both weight and drag so it is beneficial to fly without them. With the fuselage sailing like a ship, they are not required. There are some under the wings but tiny. They do not support the full weight of the aircraft. But floats also keep the aircraft in expected orientation, raised above the water, same as ...
