Re: AOG in Cleveland at Burke Lakefront KBKL

The Rock and roll Hall of Fame was open, but we didn't go. The submarine was there, but sure did not look like they were accepting visitors.

CAM145.com took care of it in the morning and I think it was fixed before 9am. Great job. No idea what the cost is yet.

AOG in Cleveland at Burke Lakefront KBKL

A tiny tiny white wire snapped off the spade plug connect of the starter solenoid. I re-stripped it with my Leatherman, but I couldn't figure out how to get it back onto the spade and re-crimped. So these guys are meant to take a look tomorrow morning: http://cam145.com/ Unless someone else has a Fr...

Re: Major Engine Overhaul

I would suggest Dave Seastead at KFTW. The shop is Premiere. My guess is that Peter is correct, you won't need an overhaul, but I felt much better after Dave had gone through my engine carefully. New eyes help a lot and I am not sure you can find someone with the depth of knowledge on a DA40 fleet. ...

Re: New Forum - Approaches / FBOs

Both Boston and New York controllers *talk* really fast, although New York is a little faster.

Re: New Forum - Approaches / FBOs

I fly both every year. The SoCal TRACON is nowhere near as busy as the stuff in the triangle of JFK EWR and LGA. I think NorCal is actually sometimes more pinched than SoCal when you get between the mountains, some fog, some low clouds and they have SFO, OAK and San Jose arrivals to figure out. LAX ...

Re: New Forum - Approaches / FBOs

I am sure I have flown into HND more than two dozen times now. For a while it was the Milk Run for me. There was no real FBO when I was there, it is just the City of Henderson operating a fuel truck and a little lobby. It took about half a dozen flights before I understood the various routes the app...

Re: Aeroleds Landing/Taxi Lights

Have you flown at night yet? Can you tell the difference? (Regular to halogen was a HUGE difference for me on our DA40.) Much lower draw on the electrical system?

Re: Embarrassed but Alive

I do not. The only time I use prop drag is on short final if I have made a miscalculation or been slam-dunked by the controllers. Then it is a poor man's speed brake.

Re: DA40NG loss of turbo charger boost

A fellow in the hangar across from my tie down at KSMO had a C182. He flew back and forth to the Bay area since he was a doctor. After one of his annuals the intake manifold hose came loose, resulting in total power loss. He was almost to Van Nuys when it happened and he just landed on the I-405 nor...
