  1. It's cold, Mooneys heaters

    Clarence usually brags about his eight cylinder Comanche, since he forgot to do that in this thread and since I've had a few winter time rides in it, I can tell you that it has no trouble pumping out heat.
  2. Dynon Certified thread

    From Dynon's certified Skyview FAQ's, in answer to the question "Do I need to install the full system?" Their answer is: "Dynon will have a variety of system configurations available to tailor an installation to your aircraft. This may include omitting some products that you choose to not install." Hopefully this will be true...
  3. Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas Clarence, see you next week. And Merry Christmas to the rest of MS.
  4. Introductory Light Jet flight?

    If you'd like to log an hour or two in a jet warbird, go see Larry in Santa Fe, NM at http://www.jetwarbird.com/. I flew an hour in the L-39, it was awesome (but not cheap)!
  5. Mine burns a quart every 4 hours. Cylinders have been borescoped showing no issues, compressions are good, oil analysis also good, it just seems to be what the engine consumes. Engine has 1,100 his since new and I've had it for the last 250 hours.
  6. Should you happen to depart CYSN after FSS hours (they close at 9:00PM local), London FSS has an RCO on the field so you can reach them on 126.7 and they will relay an IFR clearance for you.
  7. Change in fuel pressure

    Oddly enough, I had forgotten about this. My fuel pressure readings have remained consistent ever since and I completely forgot about it when the annual came around, so I didn't have it checked.

    Me too please!

  11. Canada Pilots?

    I'll get you one shortly...
  12. KBUF for Customs clearance

    I have also found KDAY to be very good for customs and there is no landing fee.
  13. KBUF for Customs clearance

    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.
  14. Me and my J on Flight Chops

    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.

    If you look closely, you can probably see Clarence's shop.
