  7. Hello, i have been few times in Croatia : Pula, Split, Brac, Dubrovnik,... very easy flying with ATC and GA friendly for both IFR VFR also on the ground. I have seen sarakevo is now open for Ga (was not few years ago). This country is not un EU you should check the rules for importing your plane. As general rule in Europe EU you will have to pay for import taxes 20% of the value of the plane. You may keep US registrations using trustee company. As average also fuel cost is 2x the cost of US. Also to check for AVGAS availability in Sarajevo is indicated no AVGAS if you are a « visitor ».

  12. Hello on a flight from Marseille France to San Lluis Menorca under IFR FLIGHT : the ALT voltage red lamp Went ON and ALT FIELD breaker engaged. Tried to push the breaker it did pop out immediately. I decided to divert to LFMP Perpignan where i landed without problem. On the ground went to repair station we found the battery power connector was lose we tighten it properly and the problem seemed to be fixed. Made a new flight plan and when for refueling after few minutes same issue came back. I do believe the voltage regulator failed after testing again no more voltage was supplied. Anybody had
  13. Yes the two altimeters are mandatory in europe for IFR CERTIFICATION of the airplane
  14. I have installed new radios GTN750 plus Audio GMA35c it a big difference compared to previous GNS430. The main reason was to get WAAS capability for GNNS approach in Europe many airports no longer have ILS and GNNS allows you to fly to more locations. I found the new GTN750 much more user friendly easy to enter frequencies enter routes load approaches... and the GMA35c is so much improvement in sound quality and you can isolate the pilot from passengers also connect your phone via BLE and listen to music in the air. Philip
  15. You can get the replacement at Mouser electronics cost below 10$ per part. I suggest you buy two just in case of issue during mounting. Easy to replace need to be soldered with iron. Philip
