  3. I'll get you one shortly...
  4. I have also found KDAY to be very good for customs and there is no landing fee.
  5. I've cleared at KBUF many times and it has always gone smoothly. 100LL is expensive and there is a $5 landing fee that you pay at the FBO.
  6. 201er, if a controller says "keep your speed up" without giving a specific number, they just want you to go as fast as you can safely can. If that will be much below your filed cruise speed, it might not hurt to tell the controller what speed you will do, so that they know what to expect. I don't know what the rules are in the US, but in Canada, the lowest speed we can legally issue a jet is 160kts and when using speed control for approach sequence, that is normally the speed we give to jets and turboprops to the FAF. So if you have a piston doing 90kts on the approach with other aircraft following, you need a LOT of extra room. If you can do 150kts or better until past the FAF, you'll fit in just fine, but at least for me, that is only reasonable/safe if I'll be in VMC when the time comes to slow down. Pet peeves as a controller: 1. Pilots not listening. Everyone misses a call here and there (me included), that's not the end of the world, but if I need to call someone multiple times and and it's the same every time I transmit to you, I'll get annoyed. 2. If I've vectored you off course and then tell you direct XYZ and you turn to re-intercept the original magenta line instead of entering a direct to from your present position. The most common occurrence of this for me is VFRs going from CYTZ to CYKF, we have them follow the Lake Ontario shoreline until they are clear of the arrival/departure area for CYYZ and then tell them direct CYKF. If they turn to go back to the magenta line from CYTZ to CYKF they end up heading at YYZ arrivals or departures.
  7. If you look closely, you can probably see Clarence's shop.
  8. I've had my instrument rating for almost 6 years and been a Mooney owner for almost 2 years. I truly believe that the instrument rating is the best, most useful rating you can get - unless you have no interest in travelling with your airplane and if that's the case, why bother having a Mooney. You really can't beat taking off on a dreary overcast day and breaking out on top into glorious sunshine. I don't think that'll ever get old for me. The furthest trip I've done so far was 1,000nm (to Florida) and I've done many other 600-800nm trips.
  9. My J is my first airplane, I've had her for 1.6 years and logged 170 hours so far. I still get excited every time I go out to the hangar, even if I'm not going flying.
  10. I pasted the same link in a second time and it worked! Go figure?
  11. How do I embed the video on the page??? Can't get it to work?
  12. Thanks for everyone's help! The bulb is the GE 330, I got one and tried it in a few different sockets but it doesn't work, so there is a bigger problem. Perhaps I'll wait for the annual and let Clarence fix it.
  13. I've emailed the previous owner to find out if there is a reason there are no bulbs... as people have mentioned, there may be a reason. Where would I find that LED strip that Tom posted? That looks like a possible easy solution.
  14. I would pull one to find out, but there are none. Perhaps I'll get a 330 and see if it fits/works.
