  1. It sure may kill off the King option.... now if either my HSI or flight director go, the choice is easy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Plane and pilot says at 4995 it includes the autopilot adapter... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Depends on where you’re going... only 45 mins to say queens, under an hour to penn station... but importantly low stress trip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah you’re doing something wrong. And Sheltair will drop off and pick up at station which is close by... Train under an hour... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Did you check Sheltair at FRG? The LIRR is pretty fast and direct to Manhattan... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. E170/190 Type Rating... the next step in second career... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. And importantly... “How many times can you use ADAPT? According to AOPA’s guidance on the matter, it’s not likely to be unlimited. The FAA created ADAPT as an interim measure to allow non-conforming aircraft a way to get to a location where they can be equipped and for those aircraft with installed but inoperative ADS-B Out systems to get repair service.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I have a 96. Haven’t found a single gremlin. They are older so be aware of fuel tank sealant state, gear shocks, and know that the original prop is inferior to the later ones... Also the king stuff is great and mine works fine, but eventually it will have to be replaced... I’d love to ditch the vacuum system. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The OP said he wanted an early ovation. The ones who jumped in were those advocating g1000 not the other way around. And there are undeniable gotchas with the factory installed g1000s that you have to know about... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I totally disagree with those saying go with a factory equipped g1000 ovation. The early ovations are steals. And often an awesome blank slate for panel upgrades. I added a top prop to my 1996 R and am very happy. I’m not locked in in any way avionics wise, and still waiting for that dust to settle. It’s a great pick, here is my current panel, I have the taller one and don’t mind it at all, just gives you more room for avionics. Still see fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’ve come to believe the only way to compete is to add a chute. But this would require a wing and gear redesign/beef up for increased load and to keep under the single engine stall speed certification limits. That’s expensive. Us “real pilots” like to er downplay the importance of the chute, but they do sell airplanes and deal with spouse objections. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Let’s also not forget that cars can’t travel long distances direct. Probably subtract 30% for the meandering of roads on a typical trip. Here is an ovation definitely traveling a line a car can’t, while going 230mph or so... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
