  1. Alrighty! Been flying my CTSW for 13 years and never knew that! 😄
  2. What do you mean by mushroom side? Not heard that term before now.
  3. Where are owners mounting their iPad and/or iPhone in the CTSW. I use foreflight as a backup and still have not found a good mount solution that does not block the "glass instruments and Aria 660" on my panel.
  4. To comply with the ADS-B 2020mandate, we are having a Garmin Aera 660 installed to replace our Garmin 496, and a Garmin GTX 345 w/WAAS GPS installed to replace our Garmin GTX330. We have a 2007 CTSW. My avionics shop is unfamiliar with Flight Design, and wants me to ask the Forum if anybody knows (1) what is the best method and (2) what is the best location on our 2007 CTSW, to install the new WAAS GPS antenna, as it needs to be facing up and in clear view of the sky to receive the mandated satellite reception. All thoughts are appreciated. Robin
  5. Robin and John Sullivan from Santa Paula have to cancel the fly-in this year. Work got in the way. Hope to see you all next year.
  6. We made reservations today for the fly-in. We made it to the last 2 and look forward to seeing everyone again this year. John and Robin Sullivan N156CT
  7. Roger: We stopped at Jean about 10:30 AM, and had a long lunch. The California coast was fogged in so we were waiting for it to clear at our home airport. About 1:00 PM, the thunder, lightening and hail started. John Sullivan
  8. "It was either 26 or 27. But even if 2 showed up it was going to be fun. I was hoping to set an all time recorded of CT's on a field and maybe last year at 29 it was, but I wanted at least 40 this year, but it will have to be next year. Next year we will change up the flying a bit so every one that has been there has something new to look forward to. Plus we'll have a co-pilot (ladies only) things to do." See above: Hey Roger - what if the co-pilot is a guy? Can he go to the ladies only thing? Robin Sullivan Lady Pilot
  9. Hi CTers. We had a great time at Page. We stopped at Jean, Nv. for lunch and ended up spending the night there. Were considering the weather when 1/2 inch hail and high winds hit along with thunder and lightning. That finalized our decision to spend the night at the local hotel casino and eat buffet. Got home the next day pretty uneventfully. See ya next year... Robin & John Sullivan
  10. Hi all: We (Robin and John) are flying to Page from the California coast. The last few days we have had morning fog that kept our airport socked in until 9 or 10. So we may get there late afternoon. Don't eat all the food before we get there. John
