  1. Cutting Holes in a Fastbo Panel

    I want to cut a 2 1/4" hole in a Fastbo Instrument panel. Any good tips to do this without damaging the panel?
  2. Back of seat strap

    I had this problem for some time. Someone finally pointed out to me that the straps were installed backwards, such that when leaning back in the seat the buckle was pinched between the seat and back "wall". Switched them around and haven't had a problem since even though I no long put a knot in. Don't recall exactly how they are positioned now, but if you need one I can take a photo and post it.
  3. Garmin 496 to 696

    The GDL 39 manual (page 3-5) shows the bare wire to just the GDL 39 has the orange wire as part of its bundle. I ASSUME it would also be the same with the wire harness you show above. Sorry but that is the best information I could find.

  5. Garmin SL40 - Setting up the squelch.

    Do you have the SL40 Installation Manual? If so, this is found on the bottom of page 12. If you don't have this I can copy it and post here.

  7. Let's talk about grounds. Again.

    Good information and photo. Thanks for sharing.
  8. BRS 1350HS Rocket Kit

    Hey Al, did you need an appointment to bring the chute and take a tour or can you just drop by?
  9. New panel insert

    Translated it says: "Currently Unavailable".
  10. Neuform 1500 Hour Extension SB TM-17-01

    I had found the same thing a while ago, but was waiting for the new SB to come out. Finally wrote an email to them several weeks ago but have not received a reply. My interpretation of the advanced notice is that there are currently no time limits until the new SB is released and specifies them.

  14. I attended this course several years ago. I found the instructors to be very informed, professional and dedicated to their students. We were given ample opportunity to discuss issues with them and I found them open to updating their information if something new was available. At no point did I feel they were giving an absolute "This is the way it is and will never change" position. What I got is that it is your responsibility to learn what is needed to both be safe and legal. They provided sources we would need to go to find the information to make the best decision to meet those ends. As you read through this site you will find many instances where there are different interpretations of "the right way" to do things. It is up to us as repairmen, owners, and pilots to ask questions and learn what is needed. As Keith says in the posting above "We are free to disagree and doing so in a polite and cordial manner will make for a more pleasant exchange of ideas and opinions."
  15. BRS removal

    This is from page 72 of the Owner's Manual: NOTE: Hand-Packed softpacks (currently the Model 600 only) do not necessarily need to be returned to the factory for routine service. They can be inspected and repacked by certified FAA riggers familiar with round emergency parachutes. Instructions are available from BRS. Our CTs do not have the Model 600 installed. Not sure if this is the current advice. My manual is BPS P/N 020002-01 Revision A.
