  1. Do not disregard this. Read if you have had a hose change on your 912iS engine. This is from me and not a factory alert. It's a hard core FYI. Due to a difference in hose 9.5mm and fitting 7.5, Oetiker clamps shouldn’t be used on the 912iS engine fuel supply hose that attaches on the fuel rail fitting. It could come off. The Oetiker for that size of hose does not crimp down far enough. We are not talking about the Band-It clamp on the fire sleeve. We are talking about the clamp on the rubber hose. I would highly advised before the next flight that if you have had a hose change on your 912iS engine that you remove the top cowl and pull on the right side top fuel hose that attaches to the fuel rail. It may slide off. If you have an Oetiker clamp on the rubber hose remove it and install a Band-It clamp which can compress the hose more and prevent it from coming off.
  2. You're comparing apple and oranges. Your old CT is not like your new one. It's just different and you're not used to it. Start all trims at a zero mid point. Then once in level flight trim the pitch first, then the ailerons and then the rudder. It should be fine then. Don't try and make permanent adjustments in the trim controls until you fly it a while and reset the cabin trims. I can't tell you how many Ct's have come in and they think their trim adjustments are all out of whack or their plane won't trim. Follow the order above and you should be good. Stick pressure is going to be different because it's a different build CT.
  3. Get too big becomes cumber sum. Just use the standard Ipad.
  4. 10.5 going south and 11.5 going north. There are 6 corridors. They are named on the Grand Canyon map. You can put the GPS coordinates off the map in your aircraft GPS and know exactly where to enter or exit. It is quite easy to do and follow. We have flown these corridors many times at the Page, AZ Fly-In.
  5. We are not certified aircraft. Just have an avionics shop do it for you and put a label in the logbook.
  6. he only got pale. Reach over and shut the engine off and watch them cry.
  7. The mechanical pump has rarely ever failed. If it were to totally fail it fails open. Yes gravity feed makes a huge difference and no the engine will not quit. You may only be able to get 4900 - 5000 rpm out of it before it wants to cough, but you can still fly wherever you want. The engine will run just fine below the 2.2 psi minimum. I know this because I tested the system just for this.
  8. Tighten the 5 main grounds, squeeze the fuel pressure gauge connectors with a pair of pliers to make them tighter and if these fail replace the sender. Most likely has some old fuel clogging up the tiny hole in the sender.
  9. 50 knots at 30 & 40 for me to. At this speed I can land in 1K ft. and less all day long. If you try to shave every last knot off one day you may be posting picks here of your smashed gear. There isn't enough to be gained by trying to shave a few knots off.
  10. If for any reason my computer runs a bit slower than normal I run CCleaner (free download) and clean all history & cookies from begining of time ( it won't hurt your passwords). I also run Malware Bytes and Rouge Killer once every two weeks. I never have computer problems or any malware. These items keep my computer fast and clean. Learned these easy and simple tricks from CT4Me. If you've never used a cleaner then you probably have thousands of cookies and trackers on your computer. I let Microsoft Essentials and Malware Bytes run in the background all the time for security. p.s. I never ever open any email or attachment if I don't know what it is or did not go personally looking for something on a secure site. Opening an attachment gives your computer permission to allow whatever is in the attachment access to your computer. Now days Ransom Ware is a major issue and you could lose everything on your system.
  11. I CTLSi crashed a few days ago (pilot error) as it veered off the runway and hit a hole which caused it to be totaled. No injuries. This was at some airport around Las Vegas.
