    Today's flight for 2018

    Had a fantastic time flying into Oshkosh with the Mooney Caravan. Left Thursday. Departed 27 and flew runway heading for a few miles before ATC turned me east and basically took me over the airport. Here is a pic just before entering the cloud deck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Seat rails

    I'm 6'2" and had 3" rudder pedal extensions in my J and could not even get my legs under the panel with them installed. Took them out and it is perfect. Still on the last hole though. I do have long legs.

    I'm back!

    Just had a 530W and Garmin 345 Adsb installed. During the test flight parts of the engine monitor stopped working - it the primary (read only) engine gauges so they are required. So, the airplane is grounded until it gets back. A 2 week job into it’s 7 the week. Sorry. Just venting a little. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I found my first airplane

    My first airplane crashed killing the student pilot onboard. Looked it up a few years after we sold it. I was pretty bummed that it had crashed, but was even more sad that a young student pilot lost her life in it - very tragic. She hit the top of a truck while landing at an unfamiliar airport. The highway passed pretty close to the end of the runway and she mis-judged her landing angle.

    Avionics upgrade

    You are correct, it is the AOPA give-a-way airplane from 2000. I like the avionics a lot less than I thought I would. I am comfortable with the 430/530 GPS's and have a 530 to put in. The MX20 has a lot of lines in it and I don't find it useful. I was looking at the PS7000 audio panel as it is supposed to be a drop in replacement for the SL15. This piece is more of a want than a need because after all it is only an audio panel, but I really don't like it that much, but it works. I was planning to pull the GX60 as I wouldn't need it but pulling it leaves empty panel space and if I can't get much resale for it, I might as well keep it for redundancy. The PS 7000 also has 3 com inputs so it should work for this scenario. Any idea how much the GX60 is worth if I pull it?

    Avionics upgrade

    I am planning a panel upgrade. Currently i have a whole stack of UPS avionics consisting of SL15 audio panel, MX20 display, SL30 nav/com, GX60 GPS, SL70 transponder. I am planning to replace the MX20 with a Garmin GNS 530W and replacing the transponder with a Garmin GTX 345 to comply with ADSB. I am considering replacing the audio panel with a PS Engineering 7000BT. Should i remove the GX60 GPS or keep it as a back up / 3rd com? Is there any value in the avionics i am removing?
