  1. I like it up top. That’s where my airliner has it... and my Mooney is my personal airliner.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The real issue here is you can’t choose a plane very well before you’re a pilot. You may think you’ve figured out your mission or how you’ll use the plane or what limits or characteristics matter to you. But you have no clue. You don’t know what you don’t know. This combined with the fact that training is for wear and tear reasons best done in someone else’s plane, and a good trainer is seldom the best forever plane, it’s best to rent until everyone has passed some checkrides imho.

  3. Lot cheaper than turning an airworthy one into a bar... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Nope, came on a flatbed wings off Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. We don’t pad times, we appropriately set expectations... Atc and weather are legit considerations! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Actually I leave my beacon on and never touch the Nav light switch (in my personal airplane) unless necessary, because they do nothing in daylight except burn out. I said I was surprised they approved it that way. Airplanes are certified with rules to make them reasonably consistent, intuitive, safe and easy to fly. This introduces an odd and really unnecessary quirk to that airframe. That said, it *was* approved and that approval should be respected. But if it were my airplane I’d personally run the wiring if possible for the light separate from the transponder. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Because it isn’t intuitive that your transponder is tied to a lighting switch.... or that you’d have to pull that breaker, or that it’s not on the avionics master and so on... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’m a little surprised they allowed the stc approved way frankly, if that’s how it’s designed... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Also this is global not just FAA... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Is your stratux aircraft installed equipment or portable? Portable doesn’t count I don’t think. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Not sure I’d count portable equipment... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Not sure, but ATC now has changed their tune and now are regularly giving our phone numbers and allowing at all facilities direct contact for getting clearances even at places where they used to insist you contact flight service. And I have heard folks on approach now opening VFR flight plans without pushback... *drum roll* All this makes it seem almost as if they are slowly winding down flight service....

  13. Media easily mixes up was “on a flight from” and “on a trip from”... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
