    I heard you can pick now, NYC, Chicago, and even free one way flights out of the country when you want to leave. Free housing and room is actually a law in NYC, if someone doesn’t have housing and asks for it, the law states that the city must provide. Chicago will give you a free hotel room...

    For Sale: Aircraft Piper Turbo Twin Comanche, Covington, GA

    I got a quote for 200k hull $8314, however the insurer is requiring special approval and price justification to insure at that hull value. The insurer alternatively recommended to insure it for 115k for $5796 with a $2500 deductible in motion / $250 not in motion.

    Fighter Pilot looking for advice on the GA world

    Kind of luck of the draw too, do a good prebuy and hope for the best. Spend what you want to on your airplane, plan 10k per year for your first and second year maintenance, plus parking and insurance. You’ll either get a little better (less $$) or have to buy a new engine (50-60k).

    Piper Arrow Panel Lights Changeout PA28R

    True, I never thought about that. Sometimes I have random radio issues but usually only after flying through rain. Connected to the LED’s? I’m not sure then…

    Piper Arrow Panel Lights Changeout PA28R

    There’s no issue with the rheostat, it dims very low to very bright, I do not set it to full brightness, and it gets very dim so there is a wide range of brightness available under the original rheostat.

    I’m thankful for what I’ve learned and accomplished so far, for flying, for this forum and the people I’ve met here, for those in my life and for my good health thus far in life.

    Piper Arrow Panel Lights Changeout PA28R

    The dimmer switch is the rheostat that you roll up/down, typical to those in the PA28’s. I just used the one that was already there, which I’m thinking is the original one as I’ve seen it in a few PA28’s already.

    Failed my first opportunity to solo

    I had no idea when I was going to solo, my instructor just said I’m gonna get out now and you go do 3 take offs and landings by yourself. I think this worked better compared to setting up expectations. Weather changes quickly and you really want to do this on a perfect day when the airplane...

    Piper Arrow Panel Lights Changeout PA28R

    It might, just try it with one gauge first to see how you like the results. I’m quite happy with it as is, I think over time maybe one of the lightbulbs was acting funny too, I think I pushed on the panel cover while in flight and then it was ok. You don’t want it too bright at night either as...
