NG40 here in 30 or so days..what extra do I need to purchase?

Thank you forum members for all of the great feedback from the NG vs DA thread. The next question is " What accessories should we order?" For instance, Bruce cover when traveling (if no hanger is available), seat covers-what kind?, moveable sun shade?, etc etc. Is there a company that caters to DA40...

Re: NG40 VS IO-360 real user pros and cons appreciated

Well, looks like it's a done deal, series number 40.NC035 just was born. Next step is to arrange for a factory tour, hop in and fly to KCEU :) It will be interesting to find out just what it's like to live with a NG. Maybe I'll start a blog or thread on this so others will be enlightened. Thank you ...

Re: NG40 VS IO-360 real user pros and cons appreciated

CFI Dave thanks for the input. Finally got back from the St. Pete Grand Prix. Any car guys on here, I highly recommend it. Now for the NG. I cannot imagine an easier, more competent aircraft to fly. Much less vibration, noise, and ease of operation. Just super stupid simple. Check out the videos on ...

Re: NG40 VS IO-360 real user pros and cons appreciated

Speaking of Diamond's customer service, every time I needed to talk to the factory they have been very helpful and I never have had any issues. I have near 2000 hours logged in Diamonds and been very pleased with my planes. That said, I prefer the Lycoming engine as it has an excellent safety recor...

NG40 VS IO-360 real user pros and cons appreciated

So, seriously considering a NG and I'd really like to hear from real world experience. I tried to do a search on this forum as I thought surely much had been discussed here, and only found a few threads. Pros and cons would be appreciated. As for the NG, it gets checks for simplicity, Jet-A, fuel ec...

Re: Anyone Know N384CA

Juan, why not have the sales agent send you the latest W&B document which should be in the aircraft documents at all times (Such a modification definitely requires re-weighing so they must have done it). You will see the empty weight and the remaining useful load. You can then compare this to other...

Re: Anyone Know N384CA

The interior looks sharp. It's done by a guy in the U.K.. A word of warning. The company in the UK is called Custom Aircraft Trimmers and the MD is Jason Cooper. They have extorted money from me in a very ugly way. I had to keep quiet until now because of court proceedings. I have filed and won a c...
