  1. I see this a bit differently. If your physician is willing to sign you off, that is great. If they have any reservations, it will be easier to obtain a 3rd class medical. Like you I was on an SI. When I first went through the SI process, I was asked by the AME to have my primary physician provide a letter indicating my condition was stable. It was an absolute nightmare to get him to provide that in writing. I needed to send him documentation that the final determination of my medical status for my 3rd class medical would be the responsibility of the AME and the FAA before he sent the letter. I am sure he will have similar reservations if not a complete denial of providing this determination under BasicMed. I think this will all come down to what guidance the FAA provides to the physicians. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I'm still trying to figure out what the "butt hole" exam has to do with all this. Other than possibly taking one up the poop chute when paying for an annual or an avionics upgrade. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Nothing like a good Mooney mystery. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  4. They are rare but they exist. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. You might be able to get your cell phone under there to snap some pictures. I wonder if it is to activate the wastegate on a turbocharger at one point. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Very disappointing. Do you think the part about the "anus" exam was thrown in there by the FAA? Sort of like them saying "up your's"? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  7. And I thought it was because he was flying "LOP" -- Lean of Prop. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Being a non /G plane, they will expect you to fly the VOR radials that make up the transition. If you are starting from BSV, it should be an easy transition. I'm willing to bet they will start vectoring you before you need to deal with the cross radial that defines KEATN. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  9. She really didn't mean for it to happen. And she is sorry it did. I have seen these TFRs pop up a few times. We had a thread on them a while back. Can't remember what the root cause was. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. What GPS do you have? On the GTN it is pretty straightforward since the SIDs and STARs are in the database. The only question on the KEATN SIX is the altitude they will expect you to fly. They are showing the the transition min is 3000'. TVT to KCGF is over 70 nm so it is possible they could expect you to fly the 9000' profile for props. What I think you will get is the STAR at the altitude you filed and from KEATN intersection you will get RV to KCGF as indicated in the final line of the verbal description.

  11. I don't anything about this unit but I would try to find someone who installed one before I committed. The FAA opened the door for these AoA indicators and I wonder how much testing was done by the manufacturers. I have the CYA unit and it too requires a calibration and I found I needed to do the calibration a few times to get it correct. As a side note, the CYA is vane based unit and doesn't use a pressure differential. It's actually a small flying wing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. I know exactly what you mean about the camera distorting our pictures. I think you had a setting wrong on your camera. Fixed it for you. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. I see the appeal for Scott to consider the 335. Installed 345s are going for $6,500 to $7,000 around here. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  14. As Don pointed out, the 335 will send the ADS-B out signal. It won't receive any "in" signals. The out signal will trigger the ground stations to send ADS-B back to your plane. Your GDL-39 will receive full TIS-B since you will always be in the hockey puck coverage of your own out signal and it will display on the iPad only. As before, you will always receive weather as FIS-B. The advantage of the 345 is it will display traffic/weather on your certified boxes and the Garmin portables. If that is not important to you, the 335 is a great way to go. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
