L-3 Lynx ADS-B NGT-9000 transponder PIREP

I started searching for an ADS-B out solution for my Cessna Cardinal about a year ago. I reached out to Jeb and he was kind enough to share his thoughts on the L-3 Lynx transponder, which he had recently installed in his Deb. When the FAA announced they were giving a $500 rebate for the first 20,000...

Re: "Unpalatable" UCAP #420

I've carried CH-53s in a C-5. It's a slow, deliberate loading process. Clearance on the sides is only a few inches.

Re: Episode #420 - Continuous Turn Approach

I agree with Jarheadpilot82. If I I'm alone in the pattern, I tend to fly a tight pattern with a near continuous turn to final. I say "near continuous" because I shallow the bank about 1/2 thru to double check there is no one on final (most often an airplane on a practice instrument approa...

Re: Episode #390 - Like an Artichoke

Hi guys, I can relate to Capt Chris Henkey's last flight in the British Airways 777 (Las Vegas engine fire). Here's a link to a synopsis of an event that took place on what turned out to be my last operational mission in the Air Force in April 2013. I was slated to retire six weeks later. I was hopi...

Re: Oshkosh 2015

I flew my Cardinal to OSH from my home airport in NJ. No maint issues at all. We had a weather divert on the first leg, but it wasn't unexpected. Fog formed over our orginal destination shortly after dawn, so we put plan B into action and landed at KOYM - St Marys. By the time I gassed up and sipped...

Re: Oshkosh 2015

Hi Everyone, I'm flying my Cardinal to OSH from New Jersey again this year and camping under the wing. I'm parking in Vintage Aircraft Camping, so if you see a sleek, strutless Cessna (N30946) amoungst the Cubs, Champs, and Swifts, stop by and say hi. Am also looking forward to the UCAP tiedown part...

Re: Episode 371 "Gear Door Wedgie"

Champguy, What you say is all true. But without an electrical system, it would be difficult to handprop the O-360 on my Cardinal and impossible to get flight following here in the congested northeast, or keep my strobes and LED landing light powered - all of which enhance safety. But if the electica...

Re: Episode 372 - Airbus Engine Failure on Takeoff

The B-777, which I fly, has a feature called Thrust Asymmetry Compensation (TAC). The TAC system continuously monitors thrust levels from each engine, and if they differ by more than 10%, it automatically adds rudder to minimize (not eliminate) yaw. Engine failures at V1 are far less demanding compa...
