Re: DA40 vs. Cirrus SR20

I am probably a pretty good person to answer this question as I have a lot of experience in both. For background I am a CSIP (Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilot), and also own 3 Diamonds used in flight training, and have trained students in new and used aircraft of both. When the time came to buy ...

7) N704AB. DA42. Panel and autopilot
8) N412PJ. DA40. panel and autopilot

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

Couple of questions (probably need to ask diamond). 1) What is the difference between a partial upgrade to waas and a full upgrade, cause you can do partial upgrade and a waas upgrade for 90k for legacy airplanes, but a full upgrade is 185k. 2) does a full upgrade include gfc 700. If not, then the r...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Our main problem is WAAS and the second big issue is KAP140. Back to the question posed by Russ from yesterday - one item that has come to my attention since the formation of the G1000 petition. And that is: if there was one really important software feature the NXi and other Garmin Systems have* a...

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Yesterday Garmin's OEM manager and I spoke for the first time since he had returned from aero friedrichshafen. He has been extremely busy getting caught up and has been assigned some additional accounts, so he's stretched even more thin now. Obviously there is not much anyone at Garmin can share un...

How to fix fuel leak from check valve

Mechanic wants to repair the check valve but can’t get to it/find it. He sees the standard tanks (in our other DA40) has check valve at end of tank , but for the lon...

Unfeathering accumulator

We need another unfeathering accumulator. Anyone know where we could get ours overhauled? The price from a new one at Diamond is not pretty, We have a TDI 2.0 engine.
