    Not getting rid of me so easily

    Relieved here in Tucson. Must have periodic pictures of the mountains.
  2. Copper City Aviation in Bisbee Arizona. You will not find a better instructor and he owns a CTLS.
  3. 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.

      Thanks Andy. Will check with Millionaire again.  They never did call back after I left a message so I assumed they did not have any availability.

      There is a possibility that one of the for sale hangars would be willing to rent for the summer.  I will pursue that after I get there.  I have a plan as Creve Couer has "covered" parking available for a short time solution.

      Looking forward to having a plane in the mid west this summer.

      Thanks for your info.

      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.

    Twenty minute flight to 14,400'

    Snow does not look white in the first couple photo's. Are you using a a filter or are atmospheric conditions doing this?

    Fuel Vapor - low fuel pressure

    Unless you have a fuel injected engine. Fuel pump quits in a CTLSi - engine quits - unless second fuel pump is on.

    Baggage space CTLS

    Plastic garbage bags work really well and don't add much to the weight.

    Stolen Q400 recreation

    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.

    You can still mow the lawn - right after you shovel the snow!

    Altimeter Check

    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.

    Wanted to buy CTLS

    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.
