  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Also this is global not just FAA... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Is your stratux aircraft installed equipment or portable? Portable doesn’t count I don’t think. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Not sure I’d count portable equipment... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. 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....

  8. Media easily mixes up was “on a flight from” and “on a trip from”... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Do you have position only flights turned on? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. If you have to ditch without engine power you need to carry enough extra speed to be able to level off and control how you put it down. That’s why given the video it’s odd he’d say or think he stalled it in from ten feet... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Or not great situational awareness in the flare? Who knows Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Also not sure why he repeatedly said he stalled it in from 5-10 feet. He most certainly didn’t a stall from any height to touch down and continue forward as far as he did smoothly... imho Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Um not even life vests over water??? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’d be annoyed. I’ve had my nose gear truss bent by folks who didn’t know about Mooney tow limits... might go have a chat with the manager... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
