Re: Montreal Suggestions

You could also go through customs in Dorval and then park for free at CYJN for a few days and I'll drive you to town for free.

Re: You Know You're a Diamond Pilot When ...

You know you don't need a parachute to perform a safe off field landing thanks to the low stall speed. And you know you are flying one of the safest machines in general aviation.

Re: No free lunch

Well I was quoted 5k$ for adding a heated pitot to my DA20-C1 so I would not be surprised that 172 part was upwards of that.

Re: Outdated Garmin G1000 software - petition sign-up

Dear all, This thread is very interesting. I learned a lot by Reading this thread and other avionics threads on the pilotsofamerica forums. I am currently looking at avilution.com. An open and upgradable system. Not certified and won’t be for the near future. Does not lock you to a single hardware v...

Re: A&P/IA Recommendation Seattle/North

I'm from the East coast, so I do not have first hand knowledge of mechanics in your area. The Canadian Aircraft registry lists all canadian owners of DA20-A1: https://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/saf-sec-sur/2/ccarcs-riacc/RchSimpRes.aspx?cn=%7c%7c&mn=DA20A1%7c&sn=%7c%7c&on=%7c%7c&m=%7c%7c This one in particula...

Re: Landing gear vibration

Hi Derek, Thanks for the quick response. My mechanic says the airplane is still safe to fly so I'll be able to travel to the Bagotville QC airshow to see an F35 up close. The price of parts is higher on these metric birds. I want a better panel, and I'm not sure it makes sense to plunk 50k$ in avion...

Landing gear vibration

Taking off I notice a vibration coming from the front landing gear. My mechanic says when he lowers the tail he can wiggle the front landing gear leg quite a bit. He's supposed to call Diamond in London but that might take weeks as he is in the habit of taking his sweet time doing things. Has anyone...

Re: The ‘other’ ADS-B

Is this logic correct, or am I missing something? Lou your logic is correct. One data point is that in Canada the General Aviation fleet is old. Planes are 50 years old on average I believe. At my airport, I'm one of the few pilots younger than 50 years old. That worries me. Will the local COPA cha...
