    ILS vs LPV

    Yea, also when he flew with a new gtn750, but had no idea how it worked.

    ILS vs LPV

    I generally enjoy the various YouTube flying videos, but I’m not sure I’ve made it through an entire video from Jerry. The constant fumbling just drives me crazy.

    Mooney down in Paramus NJ

    Just saw this plane at Lincoln Park. Noticed it had a very nice paint job. Shame, but plane can be fixed. Good job by the pilot.

    Today's flight for 2018

    Anthony was at 6K heading south to FL. Made no sense to go any higher with the headwind.

    I like getting close to the clouds. You can then really feel the speed.

    KFC150 Glideslope issue

    I had a very similar problem. Intermittent problems are a bitch. In my case it turned out to be a bad contact from the circuit board to the push-in type connector. I don’t believe any electronic product uses this type of connector anymore. You might get away with pulling the kfc150, checking/cleaning the connection.
  7. New video from AVWEB

    CHT fluctuations

    I have exactly the same 5 minute cyl 3 CHT thing. I thought it might be a connector issue, but now I’m thinking it might be inherent in our engine.

  10. I found having FP displayed to be very helpful. Recently performed sid97 fuel flow setup. It’s hard to get good FP settings just doing static run ups. That was a good starting point, but to get actual TO & idle numbers, you need to fly and tweak. Made a big difference.

    Today's flight for 2018

    You know, I’m real sorry I didn’t get the wife to take a video, especially the approach & landing. She actually seemed to be having a great time.
  12. Flew into BLM on Saturday. Was a handful.

    Today's flight for 2018

    Flew West Bound down to NJ on Saturday. 280 @24G35 landing rwy 32 @ KBLM. Stayed low to stay under the N.Y. Bravo, at one point down to 400ft. Forget using a/p as turbulence kept knocking it off. One of the longest hour I’ve had. Still better than 5 hour drive.

    Flap Extension Speeds

    I wonder how many Mooney pilots have taken off or go around, and at some time, forgot to retract TO flaps without bad things happening. I wouldn't make a habit of putting in approach flaps over 110kts though.
  15. Probably can get a better deal in Rifle.
