Re: DA62 coolant leaks

I know its been a while since this thread was active but I recently got a contract flying a DA62 and also have noticed the persistent low coolant caution light when the engines are cold and then goes away after things start to warm up. Nothing seems to be leaking. Could this just be a common sensor...

Re: Deice low pressure light

The "DEIC PRES LO" caution message I've had is related to turning the DE-ICE SYSTEM on in flight.......the "other" switch was not in the "test" position at that time.

Re: Weather Radar or Satellite link?

Hi Ron - The older A330s (and B757/767) have decent turbulence detection capabilities. The new A300-900 (I think we have 5 of them now) has an even better system in it (15 year newer radar technology). The detection is based on software algorithms to analyze the doppler return data. Usually, where t...

Re: Deice low pressure light

I "exercise" my TKS system about every 30 days so the system doesn't "dry up" (as recommended on Page 9-S03-76 of the AFM FIKI supplement ) until I see the wing getting "wet".

Re: Garmin Autoland

A "loaded" SF is two times (or more) the cost of a DA62 - so you can be your own partner in the DA62 :D :D

Re: Some DA62 "Growing pains"

From a discussion forum out there: Advisory Circular (AC) 43.13-1B can be used as a "guide" to repairing different types of propeller damage. However, it is very important to remember that AC 42.13-1B is not APPROVED data (yes, ev...

Re: Garmin Autoland

Here's a link to an AvWeb article on the emergency autoland system. Also has a 15 minute video of a live demo (to a full stop on the runway) of the "emergency autoland" in the Piper M600. https://www.avweb.com/aviation-news/[url]https://www.avweb.com/aviation-news/garmin-announces-emergency-autoland...
