As early in the morning as I can possibly do it. Lots of planned diversions, which have happened on occasion.
Colin, exactly! When I was based in Truckee and Carson City, and traveling out of the area... my rule was to be back home, landed, in the hangar by 1pm.
Thanks!

A little IMC on climbout and then VFR to intercept Interstate 80 for a crossing of the northern Sierra Nevada. What are your strategies for crossin...

Re: IFR Van Nuys for Jack to Demo BATD (Full ATC)

Wayne, on your flight to Van Nuys it looked like you #3 EGT was much higher than the others even prior to the takeoff roll, any ideas why? And then on your departure that was not an issue. Just curious if you saw that as well and if so is that something normal? Andrew, good catch. Only on this flig...

Re: IFR Van Nuys for Jack to Demo BATD (Full ATC)

I bought the BATD and expect delivery in about 10 days. The BATD is about procedure practice, checklist integration, etc. The G1000 panel and simulation is close enough to my DA40NG and I'm not concerned that the IAS and throttle settings are not a perfect match my plane. Currency by flying approac...

IFR Van Nuys for Jack to Demo BATD (Full ATC)

413SRJdK6aA More fun in the marine layer, landing historic Van Nuys 16R, and time on an FAA-approved Basic Aviation Training Device. My good friend Jack, and SR22T pilot, is looking to purchase either a BATD (log-able for currency, but limited to generic aircraft) -or- a high-end Home Simulator (no...

I love your videos Wayne.
"it's a SoCal problem" :lol:
LOL... I should have been more diplomatic and said "it's MY SoCal problem"... 3 times mis-stating Woodside (OSI) as Oceanside (OCN)... well, OSI looks like OceanSIde doesn't it? :lol:

IFR Big Sur Routing to Santa Barbara (Full ATC)


This was a fun flight... starting with the always-interesting San Carlos departure, a Big Sur offshore routing, and a slowed-down ILS approach into Santa Barbara. What would be your engine-out strategy when offshore a rugged coast?

Re: Red X's on PFD....

In support of Russ's points, I've flown my 2008 DA40 just over 2000 tach hours in the past 5 years that I've owned her... I've only had the following G1000 issues: -- HDG red Xs -- 4 times for ~10 seconds each over the past year -- I believe the magnetometer needs to be recalibrated, and this is on ...

Nice video Wayne. The Spirit of San Lusis is one of my favorite restaurants to visit along with the Waypoint Cafe at CMA.
Thanks, Don. Agreed, although the Waypoint can be super busy.
