Re: SureFly Electronic Ignition

I'm curious if anyone else has experienced any problems? Response to my experience has been lacking here. Rich, you may be the only DA40 owner on this Forum who has a SureFly installed. He's.... not. It sounds like we have the same problem right now. I'm guessing you're the "composite plane having ...

I bet anyone that wanted a seat removed could have that done. It's not unheard of.

Are you going to retrieve your 42?

Re: Next Generation G1000

The February 2017 issue of Flying magazine provides some additional information about the G1000 NXi. In the King Air, it mentions that the only hardware needed to upgrade a previous G1000 installation to NXi is replacement of the PFD/MFD screens and a keypad (plus new software), all of which it cla...

The nag messages for this are back while using a mobile browser. They're... super annoying and the site probably shouldn't be advertising for them.

Governor repair / overhaul

Does anyone have information on typical costs to inspect and then repair or overhaul the Hartzell propellor governor? Quote's getting put together and sent over tomorrow, hoping to get some information on shops and rates to make the best decision.

Re: Your guesstimate: TKS for DA40

Antoine, You might want to look here as well: C300/350/400 and apparently soon sr20/22? All electric, so just need that extra alternator instead of a tank of goop. Honestly I'd also have concerns of being underpowered in general, let alone...

Re: AirVenture 2016 Oshkosh

Confirmed, Diamond has a really nice setup at Oshkosh this year. And the major plus (for me, anyways) is that folks working the area will actually talk to you... I guess I don't look the part enough for the other manufacturers. :scream:

Make sure to stop by and see the latest DA42 SB.

Re: Garmin G5 to be available for certified aircraft

I saw it today. Seemed nice. Would be interesting to do a side-by-side of the Sandia, Dynon, and the Garmin. Personal pet peeve on all of them, not flush mount on the panel. :)

Not sure I'd want to pay the mid-cont premium just to have that though...

Re: Looking for recommendations South-East US

Not sure what exactly you're looking for, but Tangier Island (KTGI) is a local favorite in Virginia. It's a step back into the past to say the least. I'd also try to drop by First Flight (KFFA) (make sure you're brushed up on direct x-wind of the oceans), as well as Ocracoke Island (W95). Elizabeth ...
