    uAvionix skyBeacon for ADS-B Out

    I would call Dynon support. They have a plug and play addition that will be much less expensive.

    Glad you had a smooth trip home Mike and hope to see you next year at Page. Page is over for another year and for those that were able to make it, we had a great time and managed to add new destinations and experience a whole new look to the Southwest. I flew with Mike the last day on a quick tour of the Dam and Horseshoe Bend. You will not find more beautiful scenery on a 10 minute flight anywhere.

    Friday report. Finally the perfect weather we have all experienced in the past. Sunny and smooth flights all day. We all flew to Canyon lands Airport by Moab, Utah and took a break, then on to Carbon County airport at Price, Utah and had a fantastic lunch at the Main Street Cafe. Then back to Page. Will post some pictures. The scenery was fantastic over Canyonlands and all along the way. Flying airplane is Darryl's Diamond 40. Ground Picture is Ron and Jan and Mike at Carbon County. Water pictures are of Lake Powell.

    Flew to Monument Valley today with Mike and Darryl and Carol. First picture is Lake Powell on the way, second is Darryl and Carol landing at Monument Valley then a picture of them and then a couple pictures of the iconic valley. Last three pictures of Lake Powell on the way back. Weather very nice here now. Cooler than normal but easy flying. Ron and Jan did Marble Canyon and Lee flew the lake. Will know more at dinner tonight. Arches National Park and Canyon Lands tomorrow.

    Wish the weather would have co-operated for more folks. Looks like the bad weather has moved out of Page and should be gone from the area tomorrow. We saw clear skies walking back from dinner.

    Page fly in 2018 update. So far 5 planes. Starting on the right, we have Larry Jefts. He came the farthest (Honolulu, HI) and has the oldest plane here (1969) Cessna 172 K Then Carol Swenson. She drove the farthest _Friday Harbor Washington to Page (with Darryl's tug for his Diamond 40) At the far end, Darryl Swenson, What a beautiful new Diamond 40 Diesel he showed up with. He easily gets newest plane and concorse de elegance. Then Jan Kreienkamp who came in with Hubby Ron. Ron took his CTLSi experimental and looks slim and trim this year. Then on the far left we have Mike "Mikey70" from Rogers, Arkansas on the web site. His first time so he is the newbee and fits right in. Next is Christine and Lee Bergmann. They were voted the youngest/best looking, couple here. There was only one vote and that was Lee. Last is me, Duane Jefts. My job is to keep Larry on the straight and narrow.

    Wx not that bad at Bryce next two days. Cold but it is a dry cold. Nothing for Darryl to brave - just exercise a little professionalism.

    Fly together, go four wheeling together. How can life get any better?

    Shedding Electrical Load in a CTLSi

    Would have to lose both alternator's and then it's anybody's guess how long the battery can sustain the engine operation. There are two fuel pumps. One is operated on and off by a switch on the panel. Only one required to run the engine which is the way you fly most of the time. If operating on one pump and that pump fails, the engine quits immediately. There is no gravity feed in the CTLSi.

    Shedding Electrical Load in a CTLSi

    3mm allen wrench and remove the 796 from the center console. I always carry a 3mm in the tray behind the throttle. Turn on and use for navigation. Use ICOM a-24 Hand held radio that l always carry for backup communication. Turn off everything else. That should get you to the nearest airport with time to spare. Perhaps oversimplified but that is what you need in time of multiple failures.

    CTLSi Electrical System Questions

    I like to think of Lane A and Lane B as Computer A and B. With sufficient altitude you can select Lane A only (with the starter switch) and see if your getting a charge on the meter, then switch the starter switch to Lane B and see if the engine keeps running and check the meter again to see if you are charging. That should answer your charging question. Shedding battery load? Turn everything off and pull breakers as necessary after making your radio call. Bottom line - land as soon as possible. Also we need to do lunch sometime. drjefts@juno.com
