Re: NG vs XLS

I looked an a new NG vs a used Lycoming. I liked a lot of things about the NG. Decision for me came down to two things. 1. Service concerns: nobody close to me has worked on an Austro. Mine wasn’t going to be their first. 2. Maintenance costs: The Lycoming costs over time are well known. The Austro ...

Re: Quick Tip: Aeronautical Map with AutoHighlight in ForeFlight

Nice video. Definitely some good points there. ForeFlight, like the G100, or any other software usually has many ways to do the same thing. It’s really up to the user/pilot to figure out which method works for their flow. That flow might be different for route planning vs. en route situational aware...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

The problem is why does DAI control what's in your airplane, when most other aircraft owners are free to decide what to put in their airplane? Why does DAI grant Garmin a monopoly on Diamond aircraft, to the detriment of their owners? I understand what's in that for Garmin. I don't understand what'...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

Since it's going to be via video conferencing, couldn't we all join in to listen in? Clearly we don't all need to be able to speak.

Re: Maintaining proficiency in these times

I would think it is perfectly fine to go fly and practice. There is less traffic currently. If you're worried about it, I would suggest calling the airport controllers and just politely asking.

Re: DA40 vs. Cirrus SR20

Bought my 2011 DA40 XLS 18m ago. Couldn't be happier with it. Meets my needs perfectly. I've only been flying for 3yrs so safety, benign flight characteristics, and a forgiving design were really important factors to me as I started on this journey of flying and plane ownership. I bought the DA40 an...

Re: Good news and bad news at S39

Not sure what the airport plans are...but placing a voice recorded note about the frequency change on the local weather frequency could help.
