  1. The thing that makes these sort of sites scams is that you spend just as much time answering the questions to them as you would directly to the federal site. If you do not answer any questions, then they are really scams, since the information may not be accurate.
  2. The estimate I received to install a GNX-375 was for $11,000 total with a flat fee of $3400 for labor. I suspect that does not necessarily mean 34 hours @ $100/hr.
  3. For actual test prep, the Sheppard Air downloads are good. They are not much more expensive than other companies books, and they also guarantee you to get at least a 90% on your test. My kids used the ASA videos, (about 15 years ago), in lieu of Ground School, and they were successful.
  4. I know a few IAs. You can PM me with more details.
  5. Patience for what? It all depends... I have patience for ignorance, I have none for stupidity. I have patience for weather, I have none for lack of fuel. I have patience for lack of skill, I have none for lack of trying. I have patience for someone with manners, I have none for the impertinent. I have patience for error, I have none for incompetence.
  6. No. I print them with ABS, paint them, and laser cut the lettering.
  7. I have a variety of covers. Let me know what you want/need.
  8. It is 3-D printable, if you have all of the broken pieces, (or if you can find a CAD file). Be advised, though, that if you have to do it that way, it may cost up to $150-$200.
  9. http://ufopilots.org/ My dad has been a member of this organization for about 8 years. He told me a doctor ran a survey of the members a few years ago, and most responded. (I suppose most are also retired with enough free time to complete a survey.) The results? The ONLY commonality, (considering life-styles, socioeconomics, heredity, location, etc.), was that they each have a few drinks before dinner. So have a guilt-free dose of health food tonight.
  10. Actually, it has been better around here lately. The local approach and tower personnel use lots of trainees, since it is never that busy here. Without the students, the pros are the only ones working.
  11. My first airplane was a 1/3 share of a Cessna P-172. I sold my share for what I paid for it after 2 years. My family of four could fly it to the Midwest once a year to visit families, including all the fixed costs, for the price of four airline tickets to the vicinity. Any other flying I did was the price of auto gas, (STC for that), and a modest sum we chipped in per hour. These days, unfortunately, the price is somewhat higher than that. For my 1/2 share of my 201, this year was about $4000 plus gas for around 125 hours of flying.
  12. I have not installed a JPI, yet, but I have the same transducer they use and a totalizer. After running several hundred gallons through it, I can say the flow meter is, (was, unfortunately, see my latest thread), within 1% accuracy.
  13. My Mooney just finished its annual, but when I started it, the Fuel Flow read zero. I took it back to my mechanic, but we could not find anything obviously wrong, (i.e. loose wire, plug not attached, etc.). He said it was fine during their last test run. Has this ever happened to you? Any suggestions?
  14. If someone can send me a CAD file of the E-T-A switch cover, and if there is enough interest, I can/will make them.
