    Mounting of GPS antenna for ADSB in.

    I put my GPS on the glare shield and it works just great. Almost anywhere in the A/C would work fine, Composit is transparent for GPS (and most else)

    Newbie needs advice please

    i've had my SW for 5 yrs now (Sundowner and Skyhawk before) and I love it. Fla to NY and back a number of times, no problem. Being retired no IFR is no problem. Just a night in a nice hotel, only happend once. My only gripe is the lack of a shelf behind the occupants. For charts, reference books, water bottle, snack etc. etc.

  4. Congrats. I've been flying an SW for a little over 5 yrs. I like it as well or better than my previous machines. (Sundowner, 172 and 182) Good Luck and have FUN !

    Too Old To Fly

    It's not just fly or not. At 80 yrs of age, I decided that IFR, complex and high cross winds were not too smart. Now at 85 I am confident and careful and happy in an LSA. Including cross country from Fla to NY and back. Be careful and realistic.

    Filtering Bullsh*t

    could not agree more. But the noise does make the experience a bit of a pain in the neck.

    Nice set up
  14. I helped my landings (runway alignment)by putting a short yellow piece of tape on the mushroom, aligned with the A/C center line and directly in front of me. The problem is made worse by the fact that we sit slightly turned to the right by the narrowing of the body, (rudder pedals closer to the center line than our butt) After a few years we do not need the "yellow crutch" anymore.
