  1. To me this is very simple, does the STC paperwork say "FAA approved?" If it does, your local FAA guy has no say in the matter. His fight is with the higher-ups. In the meantime, I would install it and turn it on as the STC says. When I was going through upgrade training at my current job, I found a couple of things that seemed strange and probably not the most safe as far as procedures. I asked the FAA guy directly about it, his response? "What does it say on the bottom of the page?" There is no way you can get violated in this. All that being said, It definitely makes sense to have it active anytime the Avionics Master is on. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

  3. You might try The Avionics Place in Rockford, il Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. You might try the 70/50 rule for each departure. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Without knowing all the particulars, is my understanding the FBO has the right to do with what they want on the ramp. I have specifically told them not to touch my plane, and I have come out to find it moved. I politely talked to the FBO and ask them why they moved it and went against my wishes. I explained to them why I did not want the airplane touched due to turn limits. Did they understood, and it is never happened again. Since that time, I make it a point to park in the back so that it doesn't get moved. I specifically ask them to do that. it's a bit of a hassle walking all the way across the ramp, but that's okay with me. My advice is to talk to the FBO, explain your concerns about moving your aircraft without your permission, especially as a Mooney owner, and come up with a solution together.

  6. We normally think of wake turbulence encounters in terms of big jets, but small planes can really pack a punch in the right conditions. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

  14. Sounds like you have it nailed down to the ESG. I just bought a Status ES at KOSH this year for the new plane. please post when you find the resolution! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  15. See if you can plug only power into the 2i. Do not connect the ADSb or gps connections. Connect it up to your iPad and see if it works. When I had my S2 with my esg, it started giving me accuracy >5M. Disconnected from the esg, it was dead on. Never did figure out why it did that. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
