Re: Diamond Aircraft Owner Census

Done but I wonder how many owners are aware of the survey at all because there's a lot of them out there (especially in Europe) who don't participate at this forum. This is also a big worry for me.. I tried several times to find an easy way to identify European Diamond Owners... but there is just n...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

my 2 cents on the agenda.. - great ideas already in there! - I would remove the topics on Diamond Parts Service in the US... Garmin can not support there.. it's a separate topic, that should be addressed in a separate meeting.. full focus should be on "how to deal with airframes that can live 75year...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Hi Phil, I am also not expecting a solution within the next months.. today our birds still fly ok.. But it is obvious that having no access to LNAV GPS approaches and newer G1000 software will dramatically limit the usage of our planes in the years to come. The life time of planes often ranges from ...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

Would wish, that we could read such messages also for our birds...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Scott I really do appreciate you setting up this petition.. someone had to start something! I was hoping to get a reaction from Diamond on Aero, but as it sounds there is no movement... maybe we should ask ourselfs how to increase the pressure on them... if we would collect some money we could - pla...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

if Diamond does not help... would it be possible to do a STC for the G1000Nxi... paid by the group in this blog.. Do we have an avionic expert with the right background that could estimate the development, certification and Garmin cost? I think we need such an upgrade in 5-10 years to keep the birds...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Hi Scott, some thoughts... 1.) I think you are missing a lot of European DA40's + DA42's in your list... We need to find a way to have them join the petition as well. 2.) Resolving the topic, requires help from DAI.... We need to find the someone with an excellent personal relationship to DAI, that ...

Re: TDI owners: outdated Garmin G1000 software (version 9.05)

We actually also operate a 2007 DA40 with CD155

You can count me twice if da40 also counts...
