Re: SF Bay Area Meetup

I assume you'll be staying in the city... how about a lunch on Sunday the 11th? Ferry Building or nearby? Rather than Leinie's I guess you'll have to settle for some Anchor Steam or maybe some of our local grape juice. ;) Could also do something the 2nd, 3rd or 4th or some other day in the evening.

Re: iPods and iPhone Apps

Of no real use, but one iphone app we were having fun with at OSH is Attitude. We were all trying to decide if this was an acceptable backup AI. ... But that was probably just the Leinie's talking. Or look at it another way... You could use it as an AI for your walk back to your campsite after few ...

Re: Headsets, ANR?, 20dB vs 24dB??????

FWIW, there's a less expensive alternative to the Clarity Aloft headset... the Quiet Technologies Halo. I bought one a month ago and I really like it.

For a good discussion of their pro's and cons, look here.

Re: Amy Laboda & Dynon Info

Amy, I am with my fellow RV builder here. Your statements about the Dynon threw me for a loop. ;) From my experience with them and from Dynon's documentation, none of their EFIS's have ever required a GPS connection. Even their first EFIS the D10, which is now discontinued, had internal acceleromete...

Re: Which way do you turn?

I guess I would say I turn whichever direction gave me the best visibility out of the aircraft, regardless of the direction of flow. For example, in a side-by-side aircraft, I almost always turn left as I am seated in the left seat and in general I find the visibilty to the left to be better than th...

Re: Life Insurance for the Pilot

I'll second Jeb's recommendation.

FWIW... After getting a quote from them a few years ago, I went to my insurance broker. He took one look at the quote and said, "I can't touch that, if I were you I would jump on it."

Re: Introduction?

I always find it interesting that airline pilots still fly GA for fun. Well, some do. I know a lot that want nothing to do with flying of any kind when not doing airline flying. Their loss. This reminds me of a quick story... We were at a friends house for a party and thinking that we would have so...
