  1. Congrats! Looks like a lot of great upgrades have already been done. Brian
  2. How was the turbulence with that kind of wind? Was going to go up today, but didn't feel like getting the snot beat out of me. Winds were coming across the peaks at 45G60 knots. Much worse up higher. Brian
  3. Same, but I was posted to Germany for 4 years. Jumped right back in with an instructor and was good to go. Just like riding a bike....getting IFR current again took a little more work though. Brian
  4. They did have to loosen my engine mounts and some other stuff to get the governor out on mine. Damn thing is packed in there and is the single worst item to have fail from a replacement/overhaul perspective IMHO.... Cheers, Brian
  5. These two have nothing to do with each other. I had a leak from my governor on my M20E after it failed and there was no visual up front on the prop of anything going wrong in the back. What would lead you to believe that a leaking prop would be an indication of something failing up stream in the system? Cheers, Brian
  6. Forgot to mention that customer service at Seattle Avionics is really good, so you may have an answer within a couple hours if during normal business hours. May not be a fix just yet, but they've always gotten back to me pretty quick with questions. Brian
  7. That is strange. I was playing with FlyQ a bit last night and it was hit and miss on filing the victor airways in the ICAO flight plan section. On a new plan, the victor airway shows up. Make one change to the route and it reverts back to listing all of the waypoints. I've never used FlyQ to file, usually do that with Fltplan.com since I can see other assigned routes from past flights, etc. I manually enter it into FlyQ after that since it helps me become a little more familiar with the routing. Just my preference on doing it that way though. Cheers, Brian
  8. cnoe, You need one of these. Haven't had an iPad overheat in the cockpit since buying and placing it in operation. http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/pspages/x-nautipda13-19502.php?clickkey=4007009 Cheers, Brian
  9. Don't know his shop, but fly over Yerington a lot. Talk about setting up a business in the middle of nowhere. Yikes! (not really, but it sure seems like it's in the middle of nowhere...) Have you asked him for some references for planes he's done in the Central California area that you can go see? I did that prior to picking my paint shop back in 2010 and spoke with previous customers. I was surprised that I was able to see a good range of aircraft (age wise) since they were painted. Great sign if he's willing to do that. Brian
  10. I used http://www.gcmap.com/, which is the same one @Mooneymite highlighted in his post above. The maps became easier to read if I simply used regional based flights instead of all of them. Wish they could make it bigger, but that's what they give you... I've used the website before and it also has a pretty cool feature for looking at range circles based on endurance and location input. Cheers, Brian
  11. Here's mine. Some smaller airports are missing, but this is probably a good 90% solution... Got a coast-to-coast move coming up in June going Reno, NV to Richmond, VA. Cheers, Brian
  12. Darn it, why didn't I think of that while I was up there last summer. Oh, that's right, the misses was busy dragging us all over Juneau during the short layover, but the glacier was cool. Sounds like that was amazing flight. Did you get to fly over Mendenhall Glacier? Cheers, Brian
  13. KRNO: 11001x150 for 16R/34L or 9000x150 for 16L/34R. Runway 25/07 is the shorty at 6102x150, but rarely gets used. Field elevation is 4,420 msl. Brian
  14. How has he corrupted the system? You and I have the same access to the FAA website and could do the same thing. He choose to make a business out of it. From his website, looks like he's doing pretty well doing his business this way. Brian
  15. Ask Nike how much they shelled out for N1KE.... or N7UP.... If it fits their marketing scheme or image, I'd bet corporations pay for those custom numbers. Brian
