  1. The FlightStream only uses the WiFi for database uploads and once you connect to Garmin Pilot, it switches to Bluetooth so you can do flight plan adjustments on the iPad (or GTN) and port it over to the opposite device. If you are seriously considering the FS510, I would give it a big thumb’s up just for the database downloads. Since I have multiple displays for showing ADS-B In stuff (Aspens, Garmin 650 and the Lynx), I typically don’t use my primary iPad to connect to the Lynx. I will use my FltPln Go app on my cell phone and connect to the Lynx as a backup. Sent from my iPad using Tapat
  2. I do wonder why they didn't try to put it down on the road.
  3. My Lynx WiFi has worked fine since it was installed. If I have any complaint, it is soooo fast to connect that it beats out the Garmin Wifi connection. I had to set the Wifi "ask to join" setting on my iPad to "on" to allow me to connect to the FlightStream 510 first.
  4. I find that 0.9% Argon and a touch of carbon dioxide added to the nitrogen/oxygen add a special flavor. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I actually conducted an unscientific study when I replaced one tube with a Michelin AIrstop in 2016 and the other main had a Goodyear installed. I found the Michelin required air once a year while the Goodyear was topped off at least 4 times every year. I switched all over to new Michelin Airstops at my recent annual (along within Michelin Air tires). They are noticeably smoother than my previous tires.
  6. The insurance clause calls out the PIC requirement in my policy. If I use a SP who is Basic Med, he/she will need to act as PIC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. One thing to keep in mind. If the person acting as safety pilot is decided to act in the capacity of PIC, they may be legal from an FAA perspective, but may not meet the requirements of your insurance policy's open pilot clause.

  9. Dev - if you’re still using Ben, my plane will be out there around November 8th. Ben can swap your 500 over to see if it is box related. I suspect that the issue is the communication. I have the Lynx act as the control head for the WX-500 and it can do the self tests to determine if it is working correctly. I have it connected to my Aspens and GTN 650 as well.

  10. Correct! In the later years Mooneys, like my 75, they moved the switch to the throttle. My guess it is the map light. That is where mine is located. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. The MVA for our area is 2200'. The approach for RWY24 is currently close to the MDA for the terminating VOR approach. Our runway 6 never had an approach and the 365 MDA will be great to have. Our 24 runway has some obstacles in the approach path so I am not surprised to see a higher MDA.
  12. NOTE: For some reason, Tapatalk loaded these in reverse order. For my first post, start at the bottom and work up from the approach plate. Same for the second post. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  14. I thought I would share the following. My airport (N57) was serviced by a VOR approach that was NA’d this year. The FAA has agreed to develop two GPS approaches. I signed up for the FAA notifications to receive the details of the TERPS development. Thought I would share this so you can get an idea of what is involved in developing an approach. You will note that the LPV version is not depicted on the preliminary chart. We have been informed that LPV approaches are added after the others are implemented. Our belief this is due to the additional development and flight testing required to meet t
  15. Tim - a lot will depend if they have him on blood thinners and the cause for the clotting. If he is on or will be on Coumadin, they require a stable blood INR test for a period of time. Most of the challenge with clotting is knowing the cause. Since they know the cause, it should be easier to approve. If he has to go on a thinner, Xarelto is approved after 2 weeks of showing stability. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
