  1. Damn, Paul @gsxrpilot, that's a fresh perspective indeed!
  2. Some would argue that the prices are already so depressed that it will not make much difference. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  3. I've always used either KPDK or KFTY. Both are relatively GA friendly.
  4. @wcb, I said 2 PM because only the real pros drink during the day!
  5. This thread reminds me of a bunch of drunk old men at a bar in New Orleans at 2 pm on a Thursday, each pontificating over how to save the world from the younger a good way, of course :-).
  6. I think the answer is "yes - conditional on your area FSDO doing a field approval"... @philiplane am I correct?
  7. This document might be a place to start...
  8. Here's a wild idea: Crowdfund a group of investors to buy Mooney (both owners and others with thick stomach linings). Keep the minimum high enough (50K?) to allow for an incentive to Mooney owners who invest - all parts and labor at cost plus 15 or 20%, modest discount (5-10%) on a new Mooney. Appoint a board to run the company in a manner that places current owners' needs at a high priority and allows for innovative exploration of new revenue opportunities (builder assist, re-start of the M10, streamlining manufacturing where feasible, etc. I nominate @mike_elliott to represent the owners! From my post, you can see why I should keep my day job :-). Alex
  9. This is my Battery Minder for the Bravo. I've only owned the plane for 18 months but the logs show the batteries lasting for 6 years on average. They are both Gill. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  10. @FloridaMan would you please share your list of parts you purchased? I was just talking with my wife about buying critical items if the factory reopens briefly... Others, what would you include in your factory only critical parts list? Alex Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  11. I really like having my EDM 830 on the pilots side. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  12. I've not heard anything. On what do you base your concern?
  13. @Marauder, mine was originally scheduled for September also. I purchased April 5th. Perhaps yours is soon to arrive. Did you purchase the exchange/swap option?
  14. You are so right on the options being confusing! Aspen offers an integration between the Garmin GDL-88 and GTX-345. I have the former so that's what I am doing. I actually prefer XM Weather and I display that on my iPad in Foreflight. The ADS-B integration from the GDL-88 to the Aspen is for me more about having the traffic displayed on the PFD window. Here's the Aspen price list for hints on what is possible... Here's Aspen's promo page regarding ADS-B... Here's another Aspen Hazard Avoidance option... I hope this helps. Safe Flying, Alex
