  1. By far the nicest C I have seen . Beautiful airplane , says alot about the owner. I love the late model versions. The panel is so much nicer than the older style. Just a quick glance at controller will show the price is not out of line.
  2. Amazing , what caught my eye was the price. 272 k is much better than 800 k . I guess that's what has happened to the value of the dollar . In 2006 I bought a loaded up 4 door Duramax Silverado. Now that same truck is 30 K more . Now that M 20 is worth what ? 3/4 the purchase price . And the Vette is worth not that much . Love this thread , and all of the cars .
  3. Mike , and his brother Mark are awesome. They are both adrenaline junkies just like myself. They are an inspiration to me in both aviation and in my small business. I have been watching the channel religiously. Scrappy is going to be Nasty. But i am really waiting to see the new race plane that is replacing Turbulence. He has the new turbine in a glass case to admire. I need a new Hot Rod .
  4. Sounds like an Awesome trip Bob . I wish I was going to be in Idaho Falls to introduce myself and put eyes on that Beautiful E . If the weather is nice you might consider the short hop over to KDIJ . Driggs is my favorite side of the Tetons .
  5. The Cherokee that I did my flight training in was painfully slow . I never wanted anything to do with a brand P after that 25 hour treat.
  6. Very sad to read this . Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends. This is a horrific accident , this outcome is probably a blessing considering how it could of turned out . Thank God for the witness who helped him out of the plane .
  7. That's just it , that E turns into a Forever plane after you dump 60 into the panel. My airplane addiction is terrible.
  8. Thanks for all of the information. I start adding up all of the upgrades I will want in an E , and then I look at the cost of a K . Or even the FIKI Bravo that All American has right now . I could end up with 150 K in a short body really quick . Decisions, decisions. But that is a whole other topic.
  9. The 337 is an interesting twin. It just seems like alot of 414 's and piston twins down latley. My CFI started out in a 414 at his day job. He was happy when they upgraded. He now flies a very late model king air and a CJ4 . I am always begging for rides in both of those . At least in the 337 with an engine out it would still want to go straight ahead. I really hate reading about GA fatalities.
  10. The display that Garmin had to show off the G3X touch was really cool. It is hard not wanting that panel. GFC 500 for short body planes is unavailable correct? Is there a garmin unit that is available now?
  11. Wow , I thought Garmin would be the big number . I was reading about the GFC 500 here , it sounds amazing.
  12. I have been looking at airplanes and alot of the ones I like do not have an autopilot system. I am looking for ballpark numbers for what would be available for an E . What can a guy get done with out waiting forever waiting for the Tru Track stc? Would it be better to do it with a panel all at once ? My primary mission will be commuting 450 miles on a regular basis . I know I don't want to hand fly it over and over . What would the GFC 500 cost if they get it approved for the short bodies ? S Tec options ? Thanks
  13. Very sad sad situation. The Duke video was enough to keep me from wanting a ride in a piston twin . King Air , sure. Piston twin , not so much. Be safe out there Aviators.
  14. Weather is one of my favorite parts of Aviation. It reminds me I will always be a student.
