    Gold Seal IFR course- anything else needed?

    Wait, nobody has mentioned the "S" word yet? Other than that, time, money, patience, diligence. What I think would have helped here, focus on links for known power settings and IFR practice patterns. You can do these right now, on your own...

    Remote sign offs?

    And if some letter of understanding could be issued by the FAA, wouldn't exactly this sort of thing help GA?

    Remote sign offs?

    An example right now that I am dealing with: My alternator needs replacing along with the wire that runs from the alternator to the battery (really somewhere near the firewall, not the battery directly). Under direction of an AP, I've ordered the correct wire, connections, silicone rubber...

    Remote sign offs?

    Seems someone should ask the FAA to weigh in on this. MDs can do zoom consults, triage, prescribe remotely. They can make a decision on what needs to be done in person. In the modern world, seems like a mechanic could do the same. If I ever get my IA, will ask for FAA opinion as I build out...

    Remote sign offs?

    In this digital world, is it possible to perform work supervised by an A/P or IA on video or live feed that they can view and approve/sign off work? Why is this not being done in some fashion?

    Air-to-Air Cessna TTx

    Does anyone know how the interior is in a Ttx compared to a vans or cirrus? Width for feel and headroom?

    Electrical gremlins

    New alternator came today, hoping the shop can get a wired made for me. I feel a bit foolish after a chance encounter. I was looking for the wire to go directly to the battery proper, not anywhere else. The route looked like it would be convoluted and difficult so I did not look very hard...

    On the oil leak, was at G3X pressure sensor fittings. Did not note any thread sealant, hopefully now fixed.

    Might not be in that. These are new baffles on new Airplanes 180HP, likely as installed from Airplanes. 62848 is the number requested though.

    I thought the windshield was supposed to float? Wouldn't that be adhering surfaces? My read of things is felt is what gets used upfront, that stuff on the side winders.

    Thanks, he was complimentary also, but those comments don't make good copy or help me to learn.

    Interesting! It was not presented that way. Is the orange baffling material sufficient for fire?

    Thanks. I'm gonna clean it up a bit today and see if the color persists. My concern right now is to safely get in the air again shortly, happy to leave some of this for June with the shop that installed the engine.

    Thanks. Which sealant specifically though? He thought it could be a moisture issue.

    I'm not sure. I think the airflow comes in, goes through the engine, then exits down low. IF some was able to come up, not sure the impact, but the flow through the engine would likely be the same, especially with new good baffle. material behind the engine in contact with the top cowling. It...

    Thanks. I think he suggested the sealant go over top. But I've never heard of such a screw backing out.

    Yeah, it really would have been better if the paint shop did that, especially since I told them to do anything best needed to be done during painting. I'd bought the Vans aircraft practice kits but never bought tools, now I think I will. Had a class with EAA that we changed and did not attend.

    Oh, I get that! I was amazed at the things he noticed that I and others had not. Kind of like healthcare, where an experienced set of eyes sees things that new people can't pick up on Or an experienced seamstress seeing issues with the handwork of another.
