  1. We just spoke with Shana at Mooney and she said that Mooney was in between website providers.

  3. From https://www.aviationconsumer.com/uncategorized/ppl-training-courses-sportys-mzeroa-top/: An Easy Win Of the courses we reviewed, our top pick is the $199 Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course. Its content is engaging, intuitive, highly portable and provides the greatest number of study options for all aspects of initial training. MzeroA gets an honorable mention for its unique approach to learning, its robust content and its interactive style.

  6. Hey Dave, the NTSB report came in on the Michael Graver incident. No surprise, they ruled it spacial disorientation. Toxicology came back normal as well as aircraft systems that were able to be tested.

    These type of incidents hurt because he had so much experience in actual conditions

  7. Question 1 is an interesting one: 14CFR61.129 (a) (4) starts: (4) Ten hours of solo flight time in a single engine airplane or 10 hours of flight time performing the duties of pilot in command in a single engine airplane with an authorized instructor on board... and 14CFR61.129 (a) (4) (ii) states: (ii) 5 hours in night VFR conditions with 10 takeoffs and 10 landings (with each landing involving a flight in the traffic pattern) at an airport with an operating control tower. The FAA doesn’t define “performing the duties of pilot in command with an authorized instructor on board” per se. There is an FAA legal interpretation of 61.129 which states in part https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/agc/practice_areas/regulations/interpretations/data/interps/2014/kuhn - (2014) legal interpretation.pdf: The second question concerns how the pilot performing the duties of PIC with an authorized instructor may log flight time. Because this flight time is a substitute for solo flight time, the pilot is not receiving instruction and therefore cannot log this time as dual instruction received. The pilot can log the time to meet the requirements of § 61.129(a)(4) and log total flight time. Section 61.51 (e) prescribes the requirements for logging PIC time. The pilot could log PIC time under § 61.51(e)(l)(i) if the pilot has a private pilot certificate with the appropriate ratings for the aircraft. Otherwise, the pilot cannot log PIC time. The question answered appears to be the corollary to the one posed by Adam (@avwilson52). Flight time with an authorized instructor as a substitute for solo flight time can’t be logged as dual instruction. This implies (although not specifically states) that flight time logged as dual instruction given can’t be used as a substitute for solo flight (with an instructor). Mark (@midlifeflyer) has expertise with this and can provide a more complete answer. Solo time logged during private pilot training can be used towards the commercial requirements as applicable. Note the requirement for 10 night takeoffs and landings (with each landing involving a flight in the traffic pattern) at an airport with an operating control tower. Question 2: Short answer, if you have an instrument rating that qualifies. Question 3: 14CFR61.129 (a) (3) starts: (3) 20 hours of training on the areas of operation listed in § 61.127(b)(1) of this part that includes at least— and 14CFR61.129 (a) (3) (iv) states: (iv) One 2-hour cross country flight in a single engine airplane in nighttime conditions that consists of a total straight-line distance of more than 100 nautical miles from the original point of departure; Taken together, the night flight must have been with an instructor, lasted longer than 2 hours and more than 100 nm total straight line distance from the original point of departure. If your private training had a flight like that, you can use it. Extra question: A cross country lasts as long as it lasts – a day, week, month, whatever. So a trip from GA to the Bahamas with a week vacation there counts, as long as it meets the other requirements.
  8. We stayed in town; Eric and Paul graciously provided us the use of a car. We live in south Florida; it’s a testament to the experience, their expertise and hospitality that we’ll be going there again for our annual. At our first annual, they found an unrecognized issue that had been missed by several visits to at least two other MSCs.
  9. We’ve had good experiences with Eric and Paul at Oasis Aviation (Weep No More) in Wilmar, MN. They are a Mooney Service Center, very knowledgeable and great guys. They’ve encouraged us to participate (get in their way?) as much as we’ve wanted, and have taught us tons about our Mooney. We’d highly recommend going out there.
  10. Well, it seems as if we have the Lavazza “backup espresso machine model.” It’s 15 bar pressure and uses Lavazza Crema e Aroma cartridges.
  11. Thanks Nick, you’re too kind. We ran Mark’s (@midlifeflyer) example of the RNAV (GPS) Y RWY 21L at KPDK on the G1000 PC simulator (v14.01). This approach has LNAV/VNAV, LNAV and circling minimums (minima?); there is no LPV. It annunciated terminal (TERM) mode outside LOGEC; it annunciated L/VNAV from LOGEC to KOVEY and continued to follow the glide path past KOVEY
  12. We had the pleasure of meeting Brahim (@Ibra) and Alexandra this morning before their flight to the Bahamas. Bon voyage!
