Re: ForeFlight / NXi bug with SID

Second reply from FF: Thank you for the correction. We have a fix coming soon for this repetitive prompting. This happens when you have a SID or STAR that requires a runway choice and no runway was sent to the Garmin panel and was sent from Flights in ForeFlight. The work-around is to send the route...

Re: New Owner - advice on configuration

I looked at the Inogen and was put off by the need to recharge outside the plane. Are you driving it from onboard power?

When I attempted to transfer it to the panel (G1000 NXi) I received a dialog box saying that the panel needed to know which runway I would be using for the departure. However, when I selected the ...

Re: Apple Watch: New Version Blood O2

I apparently misplaced my Oxymeter so I used my Apple Watch Series 6 for a recent 450nm trip (O69/KTRM) and the return a week later. Outbound at 11,000' and return at 12,000' with a Mountain High oxygen system. I usually wear my watch very loose, but for the trip I made it snug. Not tight, but snug ...

Russ - I don't suppose you know which school those covers were for? I'd be interested in trying an NG to see what the differences are.
No, but an email might get you the answer. Kevin Yuris is the sales manager at Bruces, try him at bruce @ aircraftcovers.com

Re: Does heat damage composite on DA40?

I recently allowed Bruce to measure my plane to produce full covers, including wings and winglets, for a school in Australia.

Re: Checking gearbox oil level

In my experience it’s very sensitive to the pitch of the ramp.

Re: Is the ESS Bus Switch Required?

I interpret that as being that the items on the ES are operational. Since the switch disables other items, I don't think there is an airworthiness issue flying with an inoperative ESS switch.

FWIW, there is no entry regarding the ESS in the DA40NG AFM KOEL.
