Re: Looking for a loaner/rental Propeller

What is the general guidance for when to do a prop overhaul? We are now at the stage where it is advised, but there are no issues, so how long should one leave this... or just get it done? Appreciate comments and advice.

Re: winter baffles & CHT Temps

Steven, for what's its worth, when I lived in Tampa I never installed the winter kit. Just does not get cold enough. I would not use it.

Now in Boston... it's a different matter!

Re: Your Broker / Dealer / Consultant Experience

Jonathan,

There are quite a few posts relating to the usefulness and people's experiences of using brokers on the forum, you just need to search. I don't have the time right now to connect the links for you. I have experience working with both Lifestyle and Premier so PM me if you wish.

Re: Another safe year for Diamonds

Check out this video... for those of us thinking about moving from a DA40 to Cirrus SRxx or potentially a DA42/62, not so sure a Cirrus would have been so forgiving in this situation:

Alton Bay, NH

Anyone done Alton Bay (B18) in a DA40?

I am hoping to do it first time this winter season with an instructor in a C172/182 if the ice gets thick enough, and then if no high snow banks take the DA40 up from Boston.

Any advice appreciated!

Re: New Nose Wheel Fin

Paul, not sure if you have flown the av gas DA40? If you have, how would you compare the noise from the vents when opened, between the two planes? When I flew the NG, the weather was cold so there was no need to open the vents but I should have... was having too much fun at the time doing other stuf...
