  1. I hope Parker has the good sense to ignore this p*ssing contest... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. We prayed for the best even as we feared this would happen. Now praying for Jenny and her family.
  3. Hum, so far we hear we can land in 4000' and <1500' (half of 2890'). I'm thinking that more data are needed!
  4. Bravo/Ovation owners: I wonder what you consider a minimum runway length in a long body? (I was looking at visiting Annapolis MD yesterday. Several airports with 2500' runways are more convenient than BFW. I'm fine with 2500' in my E.)
  5. Don, seems to me that’s gilding the lily. (Myself, I make do with just 3 - 750, 696, GP on IPad.) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. +1 for Triad. Solid, experienced engine shop that stands behind their work. I have about 500 hours on the IO360 they “overhauled” and I’m very satisfied. @AGL Aviation sends them a lot of work. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Jon, it’s 7 years old, I got it from PFS when I swapped to their exhaust. I’ll take pics tomorrow. You might discuss with Lynn for details about Bracket. I no longer have ram air with new cowl but it was worth 1.1” MAP before and I used it whenever I got too high to get the HP I wanted. I would not be concerned about dust unless there’s something like a forest fire going on. I would close it if flying through clouds. KP, I’d be glad to pass it on to you, I’ve got my money’s worth.

  8. Jon, before I got the SabreCowl I had a Challenger. Reusable, 100 hour service involves cleaning, re-oiling. Air flow gain vs. original. I think I still have it if you’re interested. My new cowl uses the same technology but a different size. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Don't be sorry, no skin off my nose. I posted the reformat instruction including the reassurance that it would do no harm because I'm sure a lot of pilots are hesitant to reformat a Garmin card. But as in your case it is often the only fix that will work. I reformatted a $1000+ FS 510 card.
  10. I am reminded again that it’s usually not what I don’t know that gets me in trouble... it’s what I do know that ain’t so.[emoji6] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Hum, that advice sounds familiar... [emoji6] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. KMRN, municipally owned equally by 2 counties and their county seat cities. 5500' well maintained runway. I pay $250 for a substantial, nearly new, metal T Hanger, concrete, electric bi-fold door, lights and power including 230V for my compressor is included. There is also a "community" hangar, open on ramp side, which houses about 10 planes and an "corporate" hangar, two doors, insulated, that's somewhat larger. Both are cheaper than the private Ts.
  13. I was charged for 36 hours for the installation of my EDM 930. It was part of a complete panel redo so the shop saved some time vs. a stand alone installation. As I recall their normal charge is 40 hours. You might call @AGL for a quote even if you’re not in the East. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Kris, you're no doubt correct, I was going on my memory, not a very reliable resource.
  15. FWIW, the O&N/Griggs bladder cells used in Mooneys are quite heavy rubber - heavier than other brands use I'm told. (The 64 gallon version in my E cost me ~35# useful load.) But I suppose there would be some advantage in a crash landing.
