Re: Another fatal DA2 crash

Horrible. My thoughts go out to the families. As Dave says, it looks like a flat crash attitude. Moreover, it may have been with no forward speed because -if I'm not mistaken- these metal posts behind the wings are from the vines, and they seem have not even be touched, nor the terrain behind the ai...

Re: Need new Centurion engines... 2.0 or 2.0s?

EASA published its opinion back in 2016 and...

Re: Need new Centurion engines... 2.0 or 2.0s?

This has recently been announced, which is a shame because it would have meant that you would at least have had the choice to continue to fly with your existing 2.0 engines 'on-condition'. Have a look at post 18 and 25 for some performance data of the 2.0S engine: https://www.euroga.org/forums/maint...

Very nice Dave..
Good to see some traction of the DA62 in North America. Maybe you could keep us posted on the sales numbers if company policy allows you?

Re: fuel flow discrepancy

Mike, That confuses me.. See my above table. If you see 5.8 on the display, and the actual FF as per the book is 6.2 at 80% (which is known to be an accurate value) than there should be a significant difference between what the totaliser says and what would actually be in your tank after a flight.

Re: Color Me Blue

Just to make sure, I guess it won't harm to ask the TKS system manufacturer.
