  1. Give the folks at PS Engineering a call. I'm sure they would help you. It http://www.ps-engineering.com/images/Contact.gif Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  3. Dan - thanks for sharing. I think many owners get lulled into believing they know their plane well enough that a checklist becomes a secondary activity. I have been in planes where the pilot walks through the checklist and misses items on it. And some of those items would have been critical depending on the nature of the flight. I subscribe to the flow method of pointing and/or touching everything on the panel backed up with a checklist. Even then a distraction could raise havoc. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  4. I thought I would start this thread to capture resources needed for the ADS-B mandate: Interactive site that shows the ADS-B coverage by type: https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/programs/adsb/ICM/ Link to an interactive Google Earth site that allows you to search for airports to show whether ADS-B out is required (also helped validate why active traffic is not such a bad thing - check out the video): https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/equipadsb/airspace/ The flight test requirements (section 4.3): https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/AC_20-165B.pdf The FAA's rebate program website: https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/equipadsb/rebate/ Hope this helps.

  6. Interesting solution. The only reservation I would have is if who is installing them and have there been any issues? They aren't a known name but I do like the approach they are taking. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  8. You forgot what my day job is. I just need to make a phone call and you'll have all kinds of new friends. 🤣 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  10. Hey! Stop cutting in line! I'm after Matt! You have a cowl, I have a gaping hole! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Howdy -- my plane is in for annual and my Ameri-King 451 has failed. I noticed there is an FAA action against Ameri-King which specifically talks about removing them when found! What options are out there. I believe mine is not a 406 version. Any recommendations? http://www.faa.gov/aircraft/safety/programs/sups/upn/media/2016/UPN_2016-2013NM460018.pdf http://avstop.com/march_2016/faa_issues_public_notification_against_ameri_king_corp.htm

  16. You have an engine analyzer? And if you do is it a JPI? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  17. Just finishing up another avionics upgrade and have some items available. Airspeed Indicator. From a 1975 F model. Unit was overhauled and refaced by Mid-Continent in November 2012. What makes this ASI unique is the knots and MPH are reversed. $250 Altimeter. United Instruments P/N LA-71-11. -1,000' to 20,000'. Works but should be overhauled because it seems to be sticking a little. $50 Attitude Indicator. Sigma Tek Model 5000B-36. Works great. $750. Garmin GTX-327 Transponder with rack. $500. Vacuum gauge. UMA Model 3-200-12. 3 years old. $50. Complete and working instrument cluster from 1975F. Set up for 54.7 gallon bladder system (fuel gauge label can be removed to restore to 64 gallon). $125 Single probe Alcor EGT gauge and probe. Working condition. $25 Free to a good home. Left, center and right hand panels. Set up for this: Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  18. Thought I would share some first impressions (and I mean first impressions) of the new ADS-B hardware. For those with the Aspen setup, the L-3 9000+ is a great addition. I literally was just taking off and turning crosswind when I got a traffic alert from a guy entering the extended downwind without talking! The L-3 will display on both the Aspen, PFD and MFD, the L-3 display and on the GTN. Here is a shot of traffic data on the Aspens: A little while later, I got a traffic alert and took this shot (I had passed by him and he made a turn towards me. He was slower but I already had visually seen him). This is the traffic being shown on the L-3 display and the GTN. I will do more write-ups on the traffic and weather on a later post. The Flightstream 510 is a pretty neat piece of hardware. When you pair it with the WiFi, it will do a database comparison and automatically update. Once it completes that, it switches to Bluetooth and then allow you to manage the flight plans between your iPad and the GTN. And in honor of Stinky Pants, I am going to do an ADS-B checkout flight by flying completely around Philly. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  20. I agree with Bob until you mentioned the Turbo. Not sure if that changes anything. I always thought you want to run a cooler plug with them. Are cylinder temps an issue on your plane? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  24. Wait until I post the pictures of what that MFD is doing with the ADS-B input. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
