Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up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Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up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Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up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Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up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 ...

Leaking NLG Damper

Hi, have a leaking NLG Damper on our DA42. Damper is only 3 years old... Does anyone have experience how to fix the damper quickly and in a cost efficient way (three years back it was quite costly..) Any ideas why a relatively new Damper starts to leak? Dirt? hard landing? or just bad luck? thx Hans
