  1. Scenarios: 1. We purchased the MLB100 with our Avidyne AXP 322 and IFD 540. 2. Also, we have a GDL39R being used with Garmin Pilot. 3. What we have noticed on the Garmin Pilot with a GDL-39 since around mid-2018, after the update, we now have access and can utilize the new FIS-B weather products are available such as the following: Lightning Turbulence Icing Cloud Tops Graphical AIRMET Center Weather Advisory 4. My question is since MLB unit
  2. I was just checking out AWC, no gloating about our weather here - although I do that a lot with family members that don't live in California! The differences are huge between East and West. Just wondering if anyone has moved from one side of the country to the other and how that impacted your flying?
  3. I'm sure most of you have seen this but for those that haven't : http://hint.fm/wind/index.html
  4. I learned early in my flying experience that weather decision making is an integral part of flying. I also learned in the days before the Internet and online tools, if I relied solely on the briefer's recommendation, I'd probably fly a lot less. As more and more of these online tools became available, supplementing the formal weather briefing with accurate, current and predictive capability became a reality. I thought I would share the tools I am using in addition to the DUATS briefing. I woul love to see what others have found. First up. Skew-ts. If there is a tool that was made for avi
  5. Quick question for the Bahama flyers. My wife and I are scheduled to fly over to Eleuthera on 20 December. Forecast shows 2000 OVC for the entire day. Can anyone tell me what the MVA is? I'll be IFR and I don't have a clue how low they will let me go.
  6. AREA FORECAST (FA) TO BE DISCONTINUED 12/31/2015 Taken from AOPA Pilot Magazine: "...advantages of area forecasts summarize weather by region with a quick overview fronts, lows, highs AND provide cloud layer and cloud top info, and summarize areas or precipitation both current and 6 hour forecast...." '''wants to move to more graphic breifings..." "....opponents of Area Forecast cite high metrorogist workload and other realignments...." I liked using the Area Forecast, particular the cloud layer, cloud ceiling, and top info. Where else can one find the cloud info forecast? example: NC MTNS.
  7. With Florida's rainy season back upon us, I wanted to get some other opinions on what people use as their flying criteria in the summer. The vast majority of my travel is between Orlando and Miami, departing in the morning and coming back in the afternoon. Obviously this return trip puts me in the prime time for afternoon thunderstorms. My travel schedule is very flexible most of the time, so I can adjust my travel days to line up with what the weather is saying and avoid the known bad days. Lately I have developed a rather irrational fear of getting caught up in a thunderstorm and c
  8. I removed the RCA RTA 1001 color radar display and radar assembly from my 1980 M20J. At the time of removal the unit would power up, paint color, and the assembly in the wing was fully functional in its rotation up and down and side to side. I know nothing about radar and do not make any representations as to whether is actually paints the weather accurately. What I will say, is that the former owner of the plane was a lawyer, my boss, and a friend who said he used it all of the time. We removed it to make way for a Garmin 396 with XM and shed 30 lbs.. With all of that said, I am looking
  9. I have a couple of questions for anyone that has Skyradar and use it with WingX. I just got the Skyradar DX Dual band receiver with the AHRS. I am using it for backup weather, traffic and attitude indicator. I already have an MX-20 with a GNS 480 and I get traffic and XM weather on those instruments. I used the Skyradar for the first time today and it appeared to work very well for traffic, weather and with the AHRS. I compared it to my current, attitude, traffic and weather on the MX-20 and 480 and it was pretty much the same except for a few minor differences and that was my question.
  10. I would like to replace the Questair OAT in my window with something easier to read and more accurate. Any suggestions? Is there anything which is FFA-PMA approved?
  11. For Sale: 1 AvMap EKP-IV Handheld GPS with panel mounting kit and all wiring/hardware for connection to aircraft power 1 WxWorx XM Weather Receiver All antenna and applicable cords/connections $1,200 New AvMaps are $1,300. New WxWorx XM Receivers are $600. (per Aircraft Spruce) These will also be listed on Ebay, so highest offer will get it.
  12. One of the best tools I've ever found for planning cross country flights is one that it seems few people know about. Go to weather.aero, where you'll find an experimental adds site from faa / ncar (national center for atmospheric research). The site is good, but check out the flight path tool under desktop apps. It is a java app that works on mac or pc. The brilliance is that it gives you access to the 3 dimensional current/forecast model of the atmosphere. You put in a route of flight, and you can see VERTICAL cross sections as well as an area view for the weather aspect you choose
