  2. Yes, we have a couple that do check rides in our CTLS One of them even travels to California for check rides.
  3. I've got a few hours in the Swift, they are a bit sluggish with the 145hp but awesome with the 200-210 options! They are pretty friendly on the ground but I've only flown them in fairly benign conditions.
  4. Sent you a reply Johnny. Thank you for the kind words Duane!
  5. Exciting! I'll take one of each for the ultimate Flight Design Flight School!....Of course I'll have to play the lottery a lot before then
  6. Hi John, Many of my trips were to/from Southern CA, and AZ so many times ended up through the Albuquerque area or if weather pushed me it would be El Paso. I have been through the passes South of Denver a few times and also across Reno and Mammoth on my way over to CA. Prop pitch is important in the CT especially at the higher altitudes. I have had my CTLS over 15,000 solo with near full fuel. Its no rocket up there but you can get there if you prop is pitched well. You might think about doing a few climbs to 13k to 14k before you head out just so you can see how your performance is up there. As the West heats up in the late spring our Density altitudes can get pretty high so if you are not able to get adequate engine RPM (5600) at say 7500 to 8000' density altitude at full throttle level you might consider a prop re-pitch before heading out West
  7. Got a 2006 coming up for sale soon. Its in our hanger getting parachute and rocket done, along with ADSB in/out. Dynon D100/120, 696, autopilot, hose change was done last year. Has about 400hrs. Not sure what the owner wants to sell it for yet but can keep you posted. Glad you are okay!
  8. Awesome! Have made several trips back and forth across the US in CT's, such a great way to travel!
  9. I tried the Sky Beacon on my CTLS but had trouble getting consistent GPS signal. It seems the carbon wingtip on the CTLS is problematic. I think the Tail beacon or Echo UAT would be the best candidate for the CTLS.
  10. Hi Andreas, I got your message, I'll give you a call tomorrow. Hopefully we can help you out.
  11. Same here in Bisbee Roger! Not the typical AZ winter! I'll take it over what Ed has to deal with, our snow will be melted by tomorrow, no shovel required.
  12. Welcome to call me as well. 10 year CT owner and instructor.
  13. Wish we could make it this year, but to many students on the schedule this weekend.
  14. Fantastic! Congrats! That is a great day and great accomplishments! Cheryl and I have been lucky enough to teach both of our boys to fly, our oldest is working on his instrument and commercial with us in our CTLS and Socata TB9.
