Re: Confusing Clearance

Hi Chris, yes the original clearance specifically said V39. So when I spoke with clearance I pointed that out. I wonder if I had asked for PWL direct GDM if that would have resolved it for them. The clearance guy who was extremely competent, nice and helpful had to keep putting me on hold to speak w...

Confusing Clearance

So yesterday I got this clearance: KOQN MXE PTW FJC V149 LAAYK T216 IGN PWL GDM V106 MHT KLWM If you look at it in ForeFlight, you will see V39 shows an error between PWL and GDM. The G1000 also would not take it. Now there is a route from PWL on V39-93 to CTR V39 to GDM, but again the G1000 just re...

Re: Nickels and dimes

Dan... each to their own I guess. And I have to say, I feel for all the Boeing employees who have either lost their jobs or at high risk, at no fault of their own but due to poor company leadership. And now with CV-19 the aviation industry is in even greater distress. So, not so sure giving a few bu...

Re: Nickels and dimes

Perhaps not a popular thing to say, but when I saw some folks on forums talking about CV-19 to try and squeeze vendors to save a month or two on subscriptions such as FF I thought that was a little opportunistic and cheap. Sure, many of us have not been flying as much... but every single person who ...

Re: Well, that works

Hey, mine went off after landing at OshKosh and they had to try and find the plane between... well a lot of other planes. That was also quite a bit of fun...

Absolutely no idea how it activated to this day.

Re: Finally the Launch??

Dan, pricing of course will be interesting. I think a few folks have opined that the price will land somewhere between the DA42 and DA62. If that is the case, we are looking at US$1.2m'ish with the usual options on top of a base price... I think people purchase a twin for different reasons to a sing...

Re: Finally the Launch??

I read on COPA today that apparently the cat is out of the bag and Cirrus are currently testing a SR22 with Autoland.

Re: Finally the Launch??

Nearly half of my DA62 customers migrated from a Cirrus. One even survived a Cirrus 'chute pull when his engine failed, although his wife broke multiple ribs when the SR22 fell out of the treetops where it initially came down. That is what I would have expected, but let's see how many Cirrus owners...

Re: Finally the Launch??

Dave I agree with you that the spin characteristics of the Diamond will not require a chute. However, in this class of plane it is much more of a cross country, true IFR machine. If I were over mountains and outside glide distance of a field, having that chute would be kinda helpful in the unlikely ...
