Re: Grande Canyon Corridors - GPS Waypoints

That’s my neighborhood. There are 4 distinct VFR altitudes through the corridors. Easterly and westerly Cruise altitudes. Stay on them. It’s also important to use the altimeter reading from the designated airport because that’s where they expect you to be. Mike (and others), if I'm transiting the G...

Re: Best sun shade for DA40?

I plan to use them only on cross-country trips that I expect to be hot. This is the same conclusion I've come to. They make a big difference in both temperature & sun exposure on long trips and waiting in the departure "conga line". (And I have air conditioning in my plane.) My PIREP is the same as...

Re: PIREP: Garmin G1000 NXI PC Trainer v20.81

Rick, thanks for the note. Yes, the keyboard does work as it has in the prior versions, with a set of keyboard shortcuts. Unfortunately these do not include the ability to type in waypoint names into the panel. That still needs to be done with the FMS knob (although there are KB shortcuts that make ...

Re: Embarrassed but Alive

The age-old recommendation on engines is to keep the CHT changes to less than 50°F per minute to avoid "shock cooling," but people will argue back and forth on this and I am sure that the diesel crowd will have additional thoughts. The Austro engines are liquid-cooled and shock cooling isn't really...

Re: ILS and LPV for supplemental visual approach guidance

Scott, thanks! You are correct, you have to activate the post-FAF leg you're going to intercept and be within about 3.5 miles cross-track error of the intercept before the GP will show up. I tested this on the Garmin G1000 PC trainer, and will also flight check it next time I'm flying. A-VTF-noGP.pn...

ILS and LPV for supplemental visual approach guidance

When flying VFR (or a visual approach) into a new airport (especially when there are parallel runways or at night), I like to tune in the ILS and use the LOC/GS for supplemental lateral & vertical guidance - when these are available. I've looked into doing the same thing with the LPV GP capabilities...

Re: Quick Tip: Aeronautical Map with AutoHighlight in ForeFlight

North up here, too, on FF and the MFD. Any PFD maps are HDG/TRK up. This post got me wondering why this is my preference. Yes, I started with paper maps, and the initial moving maps didn't handle rotated maps particularly well. (My first was AnywhereMap running on a Dell Axim PDA.). What I realized ...
