    Drone strike The video of a drone strike on a M20 wing is scary interesting. I wonder what would happen if it hit the leading edge where the gas tank is located? I also wonder if tks would have helped lessen the damage. Norm

    XE Vision Landing Lamps Installed

    John If I recall correctly both Phil and Joe were involved. But I do know I am really pleased with these lights and fly with them turned on frequently in high traffic areas.

    Presidential TFR

    It was raining in VFR conditions on Saturday so I went flying to wash the bugs off and exercise my TKS. I was monitoring Guard on 121.5 since I knew the Prez was in the area. Next thing I hear was Guard calling for an aircraft over Bedminster x radial and miles from Soleberg and X radial/milage from xxx....No reply....After a bit I hear radio announcement " Aircraft over xxx "You are being intercepted by US fighters" I think the pilot was most likely forced down at Sky Manor and that the pilot has permanent brown stains in his shorts.

    Thanks, In the past (1980's ) I used Air Tex for an interior kit for my old Arrow and was very pleased with them. I called them about my headliner and they don't do headliner installs. I think I'm going to stop over at Sure Flight and see if they are interested in doing a small job like this on my Mooney. They did a great job on my panel revamp.

    Was it difficult to get the fibereglass headliner out?

    The headliner in my 95 Ovation is starting to come loose and hang down in the back seat area. I might be just glued on? Does anyone know of a shop in eastern Pa/NJ that could repair it. ? Norm N995K

    Iced up antennas?

    Yesterday I lost both weathers (fisb and XM) on the Garmin 650 & 750. There was substantial icing conditions. Do any radio experts on this list know if iced up antennas could have caused that issue?

    TKS Pumps and Filter & Iced up LED landing lamps

    I'm going to try it on my next trip to Chicago. I always hit shitty weather on that trip. I'm thinking Rain-X isn't going to be helpful after flying thru several hours of wet weather and would like to myself proved wrong. Thanks for sharing.
  11. I got the high pressure warning on a flight about a month ago. On the ground with the engine off I could also hear a bearing squealing on pump one. I figure if one was going the other one wasn't too far behind and had both my TKS pumps overhauled and the filter replaced. Cav Ice Protection gave me a quick turnaround on the rebuild and their service was excellent. I asked how often I should replace the filter and they suggested I change it every two annuals if I fly in actual conditions often. Last year I had LED landing and Taxi Lamps installed. They don't create enough heat to melt the ice of them. They were iced up upon arrival and landing and the reflections from the ice was highly annoying to the point where I almost decided to land without them.

    2005 Ovation 2 - Oil leak

    Plus one on this ->After every flight unless i park on the ramp away from the home base i always open my oil filler/dipstick and leave it up a couple inches and the moisture can escape while the engine is warm this greatly reduces condesate in the CC and oil.
