  1. The dynon's do not have a fuel gauge. The skyview does have the ability to program takeoff fuel and then compute the fuel burn but that is only a computation. The system has nothing in the tank to measure what is actually there. You can have a leak or missing fuel cap and you will only know it by watching the fuel sight tubes.
  2. There was some discussion some time ago about checking that the parachute cords were attached in the right place. Apparently some were not looped through the connector pin. If you search this site you may be able to find those discussions.
  3. Relieved here in Tucson. Must have periodic pictures of the mountains.
  4. Copper City Aviation in Bisbee Arizona. You will not find a better instructor and he owns a CTLS.
  5. Andy, we had lunch last summer if you recall.  I am Duane Jefts. I am bringing my cessna 172 to St Louis for the summer, May to Sept.  I have called the airport authority at KSUS but they want to rent a hangar with a 12 month contract. 

    Do you know of anyone with Hangar space for rent at KSUS or other STL airport area? I have called Creve Couer and Smartt field without any luck.

    Thanks for your time.

      If you'd like me to get the phone numbers of the hangars that are for sale, I'm happy to get that for you.  Just let me know if you need that.

      Only if it is convenient.  It might be helpful.  Thanks for offering.

      I went to the airport to take a look, and drove by all the hangars there.  There were three signs, seeming to market two hangars, both with the same phone number: (314)504-0136.  I'd also place a call to Millionaire, as they own some hangars as well.

      Good luck!


  6. Very nice photo's. Keep em coming.
  7. Snow does not look white in the first couple photo's. Are you using a a filter or are atmospheric conditions doing this?
  8. Unless you have a fuel injected engine. Fuel pump quits in a CTLSi - engine quits - unless second fuel pump is on.
  9. Plastic garbage bags work really well and don't add much to the weight.
  10. I would think they did a toxicology report. Hard to explain his behavior since they did not find anything definitive in their post accident report. Thanks for posting.
  11. Still got in 18 holes of golf.
  12. You can still mow the lawn - right after you shovel the snow!
  13. Service Ceiling | Definition of Service Ceiling by Merriam ... www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/service ceiling Service ceiling definition is - the altitude at which under standard air conditions a particular aircraft can no longer rise at a rate greater than a small designated rate (such as 100 feet per minute). Some of the planes I have flown show the service ceiling at the altitude at which you can no longer maintain a climb rate of 300fpm. I imagine each plane has a different definition but it is usually based on the max altitude that you can maintain some predetermined climb rate.
  14. The 10 inch skyview is really good. To convert to ADS-B it is only a different antenna - $600 from Dynon. The skyview systems I have seen have a Dynon autopilot operated from the screen soft keys. Also map updates are free as opposed to Garmin equipment where you have to pay for a subscription. The skyview system shows TFR's and weather among many other things. I highly recommend the skyview system.
  15. Roger Lee and I plan on being there Friday morning around 0840 for breakfast and a look about. Would be good to see you again.
