  1. Yes, we went into Waukegan. The fuel and fees were much less than PWK. And the meeting location was equidistant. Chicago approach was great and the vfr route was easy to negotiate. Less complicated and busy than Charlotte or Atlanta airspace.
  2. The coastal route was great! Thanks to everyone for the input!
  3. Removed and replaced with a blank piece. I could not accept an inop equipment in my plane !
  4. Some good advice here. I think if I was alone, I would fly along the coast one way and direct the other. The VFR route under class B does have a lot of pluses. Not sure it is any safer than direct (with altitude), but my passenger may feel safer seeing land and the sights should be nice on a nice day. Thanks Anthony for setting the stage, you are the best. Rent a car and drive - I thought this was an aviation group I will be flying into Toledo from F00 or TKI. Hope for some good weather next week!
  5. Hey - take a look at my post. PM if you want any info. Mine was an Ovation, but it may get you started. One thing to note - the internal g3x nav is not suitable for any serious navigation. So, you need 2 nav sources for any serious IFR.
  6. Hi Guys, sorry I have been absent for a little while! Did you miss me? Looking for some advice on a flight plan for next week. Leaving Toledo headed up to North Chicago (PWK or UGN). VFR if weather allows. Direct route takes me right over Lake Michigan. What would y'all do: 1. Direct? 2. Direct to Musky then V526 and turn into PWK when north of Chicago? 3. Follow the southern coast and come up the eastern shore below class B? 4. File IFR and let them tell me where to go? 5. V228 then turn into PWK 6. Something else? I am not nervous about busy a
  7. My Avionics shop forwarded me this service bulletin a few days ago and I wanted to pass along my experience. After the installation of the G3 touch - we spent months trouble shooting the stock fuel sensor. It was total trash and I could not rely on fuel amount except when full. After a lot of back and forth with Garmin and wasted fuel and labor, we were informed that the stock sensors were not compatible with the G3 Touch. We installed CiES senders which cost me a few unexpected AMU's. Everything is perfect now and I am satisfied with the outcome, except the burn of spending money we had not e

  9. I get the same treatment as Hank. Nello on the north side, hefin on the west or sinca to the south. Occasionally, i can get cleared through bravo on request and below 7000 on the outer rings.
  10. I’ve gone a different route for a lot less. I’ll let you know how it works out.
  11. I looked at my invoice and am not sure I can even tell you how much of it is for the G3X and how much for other items. Guessing $15k if I would have just done the G3X. But that includes a completely new panel. You can read about my install here.
  12. Congratulations! Yours and mine were probably on the assembly line together - hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
  13. I started flying when the kids were 6-9. I kept up with our family's total weight over the years in a spreadsheet. Early on, the total weight for all five of us was under 600 lbs. Now it is 1042lbs with new daughter in law. No more Mooney family flying for us! For a brief time when we were 600-800lbs, the B36 worked out well. But eventually we out grew that and they got busy. Most of my flying was by myself and I told the B36 for the Ovation. Now it is just my wife and I going to visit the kids. I even took out one back seat so the golf clubs fit better. Baron, TBM or Pilatus is the onl
