Re: Garmin refuses to service GIA63W LRUs

Sounds like lawyers got to the engineers. I'm curious about your qualification to make that statement. Only life experience. Engineers that I have met ALWAYS want to solve the problem. I've never met one who said, "No, I can't touch that part, it might allow you to come after me with a liability cl...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

If the company cannot confirm the chain of possession, they are picking up an unknown liability. Sounds like lawyers got to the engineers.

Can you put them in your plane, fly for two years, and then send them in for "repair?"

Re: Good maintenance shops in New England/Northeast US for annual/avionics?

Three Wing did a great job on an oil change (and a few squawks) on a DA40 of mine a decade ago.

I am sad to hear that about Take Flight since I was considering them for an annual on my DA42.

Re: Twin Training Woes

Where are you located? Angel City Flyers and Bay City Flyers were, when I trained, an excellent outfit and had lots of DA42s available. They can knock it out in a week (I believe someone here can attest to that, having grabbed his multi rating at Angel City Flyers this past fall.) LGB and OAK (or th...

Re: da42 lease

If there is a need where you live, shouldn't they tell you what they are willing to pay? Would a small local flight school really use it 500hrs per year? You might want to contact Angel City Flyers (or I guess Bay City Flyers is closer to you) and see what they would offer. They have quite a few DA4...

Re: Seat Belt covers cracked. Where to order replacements?

Do those get replaced during the calendar-limit service on the belts?

Re: Looking to purchase DA62

Another $45 per hour for your engine reserve. Got it.

I suspect if I get a DA62 it will be 150hrs a year. So I'd be good for six years before I had to consider that debate.

Squawk Change

As of January 1st, 2020, you may NOT use the Angel Flight call sign, either in filing a flight plan or communicating with ATC, UNLESS, your ADS-B equipped transponder has been reprogrammed to transmit your NGF flight number for that mission! In most cases, this involves resetting the transmitted ca...
