  1. But is there any reason for the GTX345 to not be tray and at least plug compatible with the 330 for the legacy parts of the I/O? Avionics shops must love stuff from Garmin ... keeps the hours up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Keep yourself in VMC. Get the rating. It will save your bacon over and over. Until then...Get a home desktop simulator (x-plane etc). Get your plane. Learn to scan instruments. Learn to execute approaches to mins in turbulence and bad weather. This will help you during your real world training. Then integrate with instructions from ATC on vatsim or pilotedge Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I'm the opposite- after playing with both simulators I found the IFD to be more intuitive for how my brain works. But in the end they're both great. Just a little different. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Great find. I'm glad it worked out for you. Enjoy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Wow. Beautiful work. Who did them? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. On the same thread... does anyone have a picture of a Mooney seat with the seat cover off to see the method of construction? Another with both the seat cover off and the foam off? Depending on whether we are a solid canvas sling, webbing sling, or solid aluminum base, etc , has implications for the selection of an ideal foam type. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I messed up the French seam on my glareshield covering. Fortunately only lost about a 4" strip of the cow hide, but it was after I went through the trouble of tracing a pattern, tacking and blind stitching the whole thing. My little straight stitch antique singers feed wasn't up to the task. The result was a couple of curses, a shopping trip to Ebay where I found a new Sailrite LS-1 for not much more than the knockoffs. Hopefully it's legit and I don't have to invoke the Ebay money back guarantee mantra. I'm really excited to start working with the walking foot. I also think it will fit in my existing table, which is a definite bonus. My wife told her coworked that her husband was super excited about his new sewing machine and of course I was readily made fun of :-) I'll plan a spring time glareshield leather cover, and I'll gather the materials to make new covers and foam for the seats. That will be the last hurdle in my complete DIY interior project. I'm following this as my general guide and the expected result:
  8. I got a mini wave action flying over the Appalachian chain this past weekend. Enjoying a 45 kt quartering tailwind at 9.5 k I was getting consistent oscillations of +/- 500 fpm every 30 seconds or so. Perfectly glass smooth.
  9. Mine is 22 psi on the engine driven pump and 25 on the boost in cruise. On start the boost for prime levels out at about 20. What Clarence said.
  10. What did they do in the shop?
  11. From above. It's a PITA. Whomever repainted your vents decided that too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I like this mental exercise- let's say you provide your friendly FAA inspector with your last engine and airframe entry and documentation of compliance with applicable ADs. You are then proving airworthiness and nothing more is required to be presented, correct? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. So it sounds like if you upgrade your ES no dice. If you buy a used ES, maybe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. @AlexLev why doesn't your ES qualify for the FAA rebate?
