Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Dear all, This thread is very interesting. I learned a lot by Reading this thread and other avionics threads on the pilotsofamerica forums. I am currently looking at avilution.com. An open and upgradable system. Not certified and won’t be for the near future. Does not lock you to a single hardware v...

Re: A&P/IA Recommendation Seattle/North

I'm from the East coast, so I do not have first hand knowledge of mechanics in your area. The Canadian Aircraft registry lists all canadian owners of DA20-A1: https://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/saf-sec-sur/2/ccarcs-riacc/RchSimpRes.aspx?cn=%7c%7c&mn=DA20A1%7c&sn=%7c%7c&on=%7c%7c&m=%7c%7c This one in particula...

Re: Landing gear vibration

Hi Derek, Thanks for the quick response. My mechanic says the airplane is still safe to fly so I'll be able to travel to the Bagotville QC airshow to see an F35 up close. The price of parts is higher on these metric birds. I want a better panel, and I'm not sure it makes sense to plunk 50k$ in avion...

Landing gear vibration

Taking off I notice a vibration coming from the front landing gear. My mechanic says when he lowers the tail he can wiggle the front landing gear leg quite a bit. He's supposed to call Diamond in London but that might take weeks as he is in the habit of taking his sweet time doing things. Has anyone...

Re: The ‘other’ ADS-B

Is this logic correct, or am I missing something? Lou your logic is correct. One data point is that in Canada the General Aviation fleet is old. Planes are 50 years old on average I believe.

Thanks Pascal. Any idea which adsb out unit is better? Does the garmin one do anything else?
I believe both do the job just fine. But for some reason avionics shops here are mostly Garmin. Therefore, that’s what they want to install since they are familiar with those.

Re: ForeFlight content pack - New York Scenic

Mark, thanks a lot for the pack. I will play with it over the weekend. Being from Montreal, I would be very interested in the Saranac lake / Lake Placid and Champlain Lake region. Thanks!

Re: SoCal VFR into IMC

If I was to commit suicide but wanting to make it appear like an accident so my family gets the life insurance, this is one way to do it.

I have always wondered how many crashes are really a suicide.
