Re: Austro Engines

Emir/ememic99: Thanks for the information about the differences between TAE 125-01 and 125-02. This was news to me. I looked at the current Continental Diesel offerings (CD-135 and CD-155) and these all show TBR (replacement), not TBO (overhaul). Not sure why... http://www.continentalmotors.aero/die...

Re: Austro Engines

One of the reported differences between the cast iron core/block and the aluminum core/block is that the former can be overhauled and the latter cannot. This is not an issue for typical passenger vehicle automotive applications. Appreciate the history and perspectives of the previous posts on this t...

Re: Fuel Quantity Measuring Device

Has anyone tried (and had success with) the Sporty's "Universal Fuel Gauge"? https://www.sportys.com/pilotshop/unive ... 11-in.html

Re: FAA-Approved Sim for Instrument Currency?

Hi Scott, I'm somewhat new to the forum so am still catching up on the many interesting posts like yours. I faced a similar quandary. I looked at both the Redbird TD2 and the FlyThisSim SD and VX. My interest was in developing and maintaining good buttonology and muscle memory for flying approaches ...

Re: Garmin OnePak vs PilotPak

Rick, thanks for the clear reply, and I apologize for the delay in seeing it and acknowledging it. Your single-month solution for Canada (and any other "non-US" destinations) makes a lot of sense. As to the original topic of this post, I am planning to subscribe to the "United States Standard + Flit...

Re: Path to ADS-B & WAAS for older DA40s

This may a bit off topic (or perhaps has been considered elsewhere): The idea of having 'certified WAAS' installed as part of the requirement for ADS-B out got me wondering if someday it would be possible (as in legal) to hand fly a WAAS approach using Foreflight or a similar app as the display. It'...

Re: Garmin OnePak vs PilotPak

Can someone point me to the differences in map coverage between the "United States" and "Americas" options on the Garmin "One Pak"? I'm interested in knowing what marginal coverage of Canadian airspace (and airports?) is provided in the United States Package. A practical application of this: could I...

Re: GPU for DA40NG

I was considering the same idea. The feedback I got from my Diamond dealer was that typically GPUs end up unused in storage (after initial use). They suggested it's better to start the engine and burn 0.5 GPH JET-A if you want to play with the avionics for an extended period. They also explained tha...
