Re: DA42 as a true four (and a half) seater?

Yes, none of it makes sense for Aerostar owners, or, Diamond Owners. Quite frankly, it’s dumbfounding. Weird human behavior i guess.

Re: Autopilots are the answer, not the problem...

My G1000, GFC 700, WAAS equipped aircraft was astonishing in its capabilities, reliability and sense of assurance it provided. In seven plus years of heavy use I never had a failure or disconnect, ever. To this...
