Re: Pre purchase examination scope and detail for DA42 TDI

I would send the logs to the Diamond Factory in London, Ontario. For a few hundred dollars they go through them incredibly carefully and tell you all the things that need to happen. I would also insist on a fresh annual and have it done by someone other than the mechanic that has been working on the...

Re: Leaseback experiences?

I don't have it handy, but I *think* it is with Farmers up in Washington state. It was with Allstate in California, but when we bought the place on San Juan Island the California company wouldn't cover events in Washington, but the Washington company had no problem covering things in California.

Re: Hm, wonder what this would mean?

Re: da42tdi to da42ng transition

That's a really good scenario to practice in a simulator. The Citation accident off of Burke Lakefront airport at Cleveland appears to be because the pilot had 350 hours in a Citation Mustang and only a few dozen in his brand new Citation 3 (I think, might have been a four).

Re: N473DS at KCDW

Brian, Who do you pay for the tie-down? Is that Essex county, or are you dealing with AirBound? (I think they are now charging $45 a night for parking, so for months that I'm going to be there more than a week it would be worth paying for a month...) And you haven't bumped into N473DS?

Re: What comes after a DA40?

"Dec 2, 2015 - The climb burns 32 gallons/214 pounds of fuel..."

Re: icing?
