Re: MSB for 2017-19 fuel tank connection hoses

But now I'm wondering what documentation I need to get from the shop to prove that my hoses are ok and not subject to the AD? I'm wondering the same thing. I haven't changed hoses during the period in question, so there's no record that I changed them since 2007. But is a non-record of change suffi...

Re: Some Great Flying

Peter:

Great photo! Reminds me of yet another reason flying yourself is so much better than taking the airlines at FL 350. Maybe everyone can contribute one of their favorite "low altitude" photos. Below is Meteor Crater in Winslow, AZ a couple of years ago:

Did you not notice that your COM/NAV 2 was INOP? On my (2001) COM/NAV 2, DME, Autopilot (including electric trim) are INOP with the ESS BUS switched ON.

Care to share the Manufacturer/part number/source for the PTT switch? Also, how do you remove it? I'm sure yours won't be the only one to fail...

Re: Plug replacement

Rich:

I installed the Tempest UREM38S fine wire plugs about 300 hours ago. They look new, and all I have to do at annual is pick the occasional lead deposit out of the insulator recess. I have been very happy with them (except for the co$t).

Re: Skybeacon on DA42 NG?

I'm curious as to what was involved in getting the FAA to sign off on that modification. I was originally thinking of doing something similar for my DA40, but ultimately went with the GDL82 instead, mainly because of the rear position light issue.

Re: AOG in Cleveland at Burke Lakefront KBKL

Colin: Not going to help you now, but I carry a few ring terminals and spade lugs in my on-board tool kit. I once had a wire to the alternator break off the ring terminal on the road. Discovered on startup after refueling and no charging. There was no mechanic (or even an open FBO) at the isolated W...

Re: Bird Strike - DA40

As far as the painted sunshield above, mine has something different you might be able to source. Mine has a metal appliqué on the exterior which is perforated. It gives some shade, but allows the occupants to see through it as well: DSCN3408.jpg DSCN1373.jpg It isn't a perfect compromise, but I like...

Re: Storm window seal

My storm windows never had a seal (and they never have leaked). I wonder why they apparently changed the design...
