    30-day VOR check required?

    If you’ve got it on board, why not test it and log it? There’s plenty of time (and VORs in range) to do so in cruise flight. I have that (and “monitor 121.5”) on my cruise checklist for that very reason. Because GPS outages and degradation NEVER happen.

    Today I learned...

    ...that the drink you might be inclined to have to help calm your nerves after you get home from an aircraft accident might cost you your certificates. That's a "single act generally warranting revocation" of all your certificates. Did you know that? Same if you were the flight attendant on an...

    What Ted said! The G5 is more accurate, I think there's a little lead/lag going on with the mechanical ASI. In steady state flight they are close (within a knot or two). I think I found the spot in the video you're talking about at the very end, while decelerating, and the G5 indicates only 2...

    @denverpilot: on the video stuff, this was a rough and dirty off my phone just to share something tonight... didn't even take time to do a voice-over, just used the textual description before the video link to tell the story. I have splitters and tie-ins to the audio system for my GoPros, and...

    R182 and GFC500 STC (finally)

    Yes, very last step after FAA approval of the STC this afternoon was removing the experimental placard and putting my standard category certificate back in the plane. And yes, the yaw damper worked perfectly. I enabled it after flaps/gear up, and that ball stayed DEAD CENTER the rest of the...

    R182 and GFC500 STC (finally)

    I flew Birdie (our TR182) home from Garmin’s Olathe, KS facility today, after they used our airframe to certify the GFC 500. What a rock solid piece of equipment!! Watch this video of my descent into the DFW area. I was cleared to cross FINGR at 6000, then the rest of the SLANT3 arrival...

    In Olathe today for pickup of Birdie. Garmin is wrapping up the paperwork today and doing a final release inspection and cleaning. I’ll fly it home tomorrow (Tuesday July 16) if all goes according to plan. They replaced my old cracking white Cessna POH binder with a new one, too.

    Is the knob split, or lost? Suitable adhesive + small black cable tie tightened around the outside, go fly.

    Just got word that the annual is nearly complete, no major issues found, and they expect to sign it off Monday the 15th. I've called my insurance agent to put the airplane back on my coverage, and have made arrangements to get up to Olathe on Monday afternoon. My wife said I'm levitating...

    SocialBlade is a good site to find some basic metrics on different YT'ers and projected (estimated) earnings. It's NOT 100% accurate. Many of the YT'ers are making much more through merchandise, Patreon, and other monetization methods. One method they recently released (I saw it on a channel...
