  1. I might take you up on that ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. This is very helpful. And I agree, I actually have a little 100 mile trip I do between KOFK and KLNK that I fly very regularly. The original reason we got stuck was I made a no go call on marginal vfr with icing. My intention was to slowly increase what I’m comfortable with on that little well known route /frequencies/approaches. Unfortunately my first actual instrument was inadvertent going from klcg to KOLV on our way back from a trip to Florida KTIX ....nothing like your first single pilot IMC trip being with your pregnant wife on Friday the 13th during world apocalypse to make you thi
  3. So I suppose if we had a discussion board for weather I’d post the flight and my info. Newly instrument rated pilot with 2 hours of actual IMC single pilot. 700 hour pilot, 30 years old. 250 in the Mooney bravo. TKS but not certified, inadvertent Icing only. GTN 750 with G5 HSI and KFC150 autopilot Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’ll kick it off with a discussion about this flight, good weather at departure and destination. Low IFR and weather system enroute. Looking to make this trip within the next few days, not gonna experiment with it this morning....but hopefully before we get some sort of domestic travel ban (hopefully doesn’t happen).

  5. Hahah I haven’t heard that one! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yah, I just want to find that sweet spot where we get utility out of the plane and don’t add unnecessary risk or stress. There seems to be a pretty good gap in how we communicate about weather for some reason though. People have either been through it and know what they are comfortable with or they are newbies like me.

  7. Hey all. Just a thought, I finally got my instrument rating after 12 years with just the VFR ticket. While go / no go decisions are always on the pilot, would anyone find it helpful to post routes past present or future and discuss different weather conditions and what to expect/ or what was experienced. Seems like “stay out of the yellow” or “green takes the bugs off, yellow takes the paint off, red takes the wings off” are some of the old sayings we get. I think it would be more interesting for some of us new to IMC to have a hypothetical go/no go and why message board or a place for tho
  8. First of all I can’t imagine the pain family and friends are going through right now. Just wondering if this is a reminder that we are ultimately the pilots and can say “Unable” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. There’s the answer we are looking for! Thanks Mike! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yah, have done a few 600 NM flights in the mid teens with cannulas and I feel like that’s Probably ultimately where what I’m doing will land but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I wouldn’t want to try a high altitude flight like that at some point...but agree would have to check 02 obsessively.

  12. Yah....absolutely getting utility out of this airplane haha makes me feel like I’m majorly underutilizing my plane. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Anyone know the owner of 82CG? Saw him “fly over” on flight radar 24...wondering what he uses for a mask 25k feet for 4 hours sounds like a feat to me But I haven’t tried it so maybe I’m overthinking the comfort level. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Awesome, thanks for sharing! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Ok thanks, annual is in 3 weeks. Get the plugs checked first and maybe have them take a closer look. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
