    Garmin files suit against uAvionix

    I have always held Garmin in hight esteem. I hope the CEO steps out of his Ivory Tower and have his a... kissing lawyers do something good to protect the companies image. Getting a patent is a matter of having high priced lawyers have their way with underpaid self serving people at the patent office. Garmin should be bigger than this. Just saying!

    FAA Action Against Sensenich

    Think Flint Michigan and it’s water issues. The leaders and their managers told their customers “TRUST US” Let’s have faith in their nice Lawyers. Were Sesenich serious they would never have allowed even part of their name to be used after spinning off that station. Its like a backyard mechanic Calling himself Lycomming. Note,The CEO of Sensenich did not put his name to the NOTICE. Sorry how do I figure, which is the real Sensenich
  4. My CFII is retired from the FAA. He explained the issues of giving Check Rides in Planes other than those from his own school. (1) If he gave a check ride in a students plane and then at a later date the student had an accident. He would be one of the first to be contacted by FAA. He would be asked to explain if and how he checked that planes paperwork for all ADs compliance and inspections done and if they were up to date. If he missed something he is in for a hefty fine. (2) Last mechanic to work on it, would be next to have his feet put to the fire For him it is better to go with a known in house Aircraft. He enjoys flying my CTSW He has no more issues with LSAs than certified aircraft. If individual cracked up his own plane later, the CFII is off the hook. That has happened I know. He can say I gave the review or check ride in my own plane, End of Questioning. And that my friends is how it was explained to me.
  5. Just take check ride in a Skyhawks. No shortage of examiners. I take my Flight Reviews in Local schools Skyhawks for that reason. good luck Keep the greasy side down

    Wonderful flying up North. Many airfields have restaurants which are lacking in NC. Flew many a night flight into Godspeed CT and Fishers Island. Made me change to Boom Beam Landing Lights. Good Luck AG Keep the greasy side down

    I’m going Elsa and need direction please!

    Thanks Andy that makes me feel better. Have a quick recovery from your shoulder surgery. Tore my rotator cup six years ago. Had the micro surgery. Never looked back. Do the exercises they give you and you will get that arm over your head in eight weeks to the day. My doctor said don’t lift anything more than a glass of brandy. He is a fellow Irishman.

    I’m going Elsa and need direction please!

    While taking the LSRM course another student from Florida who works on many FDs made that assertion. He informed us that a Taxiing Plane Rear Ended a CTSW. He also stated that FD would not supply the needed parts to effect the repairs. Those are the only details I have. I understand Support means being able to supply replacement parts, such as a Rudder and Elevator.

    I may have post in the wrong place first. But here goes again, hoping for better luck Hi Andy I have read many of your informative posts on CTFlier. Due to FD no longer supporting the CTSW, I am also at a point where I would like to take my CTSW to ESLA. I understand you done well on your Operating Limitations etc. Perhaps you could send me a copy of yours and any tips you may have for me. I live near ILM in NC so I guess one would have to use a DAR in this area. Last Friday I earned my LSRM-A license at Blue Ridge Community College VA. We met Edsel Ford (no kidding) there, when he addressed our class. He is the FAAs top guru on SLSAs and ELSAs. He is the one I understand who writes the rules. He informed us that if one took an SLSA to ELSA and at a later time when you were selling it you can return it to SLSA by a simple endorsement if everything was returned to original SLSA standards. That was news to me. Thanks in advance Oliver Downey LSRM-A Odowneyeng@gmail.com (516) 817-4299

    LSRM-A. Brcc VA

    Having worked in shops on many different aircraft over the years I decided to go to Blue Ridge Community College. On Friday 29 June I successfully completed the 120 Hour (3 week) LSRM-A course given at Blue Ridge Community College, Weyers Cave Virginia. Fred Dyen is the Professor instructing the course. In my opinion he is one of the best at his game. I learned a lot from him. We had eleven well prepared people, including a husband and wife team take the class. If you are interested in taking this course be prepared to do some cramming like we did in University. We got together after dinner each evening in study groups at Shenandoah Valley Airport terminal. Airport Managment was supportive. In addition to exams there are also projects to turn in. Don’t worry it is all good stuff and we’ll worth the expense and effort. If you are thinking about taking the course I can try and answer any questions. Having passed the course the FAA will give you the LSRM-A license which allows one to sign off an Annual Condition Inspection for hire on an SLSA or ELSA. If you don’t have good experience. I would highly recommend working alongside a real Mechanic to build the necessary experience. Declaring an Aircraft AIRWORTHY is not to be taken lightly. Remember your ticket is only a license to learn. Oliver Downey LSRM-A Wilmington NC 516-817-4299
