  1. A low wing in a right bank. Probably would have not been able to see the jet. A bit slower and the cirrus would have clipped the vertical stabilizer and then it would have been over for the people on the metro liner
  2. Yeah, That is a full throttle climb at the portion. if you look at the GPS we just took off from a bathroom break (not noted in the video)
  3. https://youtu.be/VTLrqadN5FU Vlog to w91 Bed and Breakfast!
  4. I would think that since you have the benefit of knowing that your most likely outcome is a ditching, I would have a solid, pre-determined set of factors for which option to take. Make a plan and stick to it. That is generally going to end better than making a decision in a stressful situation. I would pull the chute over water.

  6. I don't think the statistics are there to back up the specific system(install/whole system, not the BRS in specific) in the CT aircraft, I have looked through all the NTSB reports for the Flight Design aircrafts incidents that have been documented, There are a handful (maybe 3) of times the chute was deployed and the AC went on to land despite the fact the chute was pulled. Now, I'm not saying that it does not work. But simply comparing the CT aircraft to a tried and true BRS system in the cirrus is probably not a fair comparison. for what its worth, I would not hesitate to use the system.
  7. Glad to hear you're ok! It will be interesting to see how this turns out and to find the root cause of the issue. Any ideas on what you hit your head on? The spar box? Anything you would have done differently?
  8. I do like the new 760. I have a 660 and just wished it where bigger. Question. Your airspeed tape on your dynon is not set up correctly for colors. Did you do that intentionally?
  9. Ed, Did the airgzomos 760 panel dock not fit? http://airgizmos.3dcartstores.com/760-Panel-Dock_p_83.html
  10. Very nice Plane! Good Luck with the Sale!! I hope no ACRObatics are done in the plane! that would be an interesting sight!
  11. Wow! Do you have anymore pictures of that orange ctsw?
  12. Don't quote me on this, But would a PPL holder be allowed to do this?
