|Today's rains produced a lake outside my hangar.|
As a private pilot, I'm not authorized to perform a lot of maintenance on my airplane. About all I can do is check the oil, add fuel, and replace the landing and taxi lights.
Since today wasn't a good day for flying I figured that I'd perform some maintenance. After having to replace both my landing light and taxi light within the first few months of owning my plane, I decided that next time, I'd use a more expensive LED light.

Replacing the light is fairly simple. Just unscrew about 20 screws to remove the plexiglas covering and drop in the new bulb. After testing it, the final step is to make an entry in the airframe logbook. It couldn't be simpler.
