I was just about to pull the trigger on ordering the ElectroAir, when my A&P/IA shared his recent experience: a couple months ago he installed the ElectroAir on two aircraft, a C172 with the O-320 engine and on another for which I'm not sure of the specif...

Re: Essential Bus -- Audio Panel

Thx, Ben. Just what I was looking for. I've been reluctant during flight to turn Master Off and Essential Bus On.
