Re: Passenger Assist Step Suggestions

I use this one from Sporty's for my DA40: http://www.sportys.com/pilotshop/aeroladder-aviation-step-stool-two-step.html?___SID=U Folds flat, very strong, steps feel very natural up to the wing. It is shorter than the wing so it wont scratch if it gets too close. That said, the plastic one is nice to...

Re: Kap 140 shutting off when cold

I have routinely flown with the KAP 140 below 20°F this winter and last with no problems (knock knock). I think your problem lies elsewhere.

Re: Eng Inst X-d out

Did it come back? I occasionally lose all of the engine instrumentation with red "X"s for several (very long) seconds, but it always comes back. Happens every 4 or 5 months. 321.22 and 321.23 and I had the avionics shop perform the service bulletin for engine instrumentation problems: SI40-153 Garmi...

Re: G1000 Trainer on Windows 10

Update - I purchased X-Plane 11 and the updated G1000 panel is very good. It doesn't have every screen from the real thing, but all of the buttons and switches work just like the airplane for navigation and approaches. I have been using the new 172. Definitely worth 60 bucks. If you click on the MFD...

Re: G1000 Trainer on Windows 10

Secured a copy of 12.00 and installed it on my Windows 10 machine. I ran the Windows compatibility troubleshooter beforehand and accepted the recommendations. Not sure if/how it would have worked without, but it was cheap insurance. It works great and I finally have dual screen mode. Now I just need...

Re: G1000 Trainer on Windows 10

9.01 is the latest available for the DA40 on the Garmin website. It shows 12.00 for the DA40F, but I would be willing to try that if it works. Edit - From the Garmin S/W requirements - has the same note for 9.01 and 12.00: This PC Trainer operates on Windows® 2000/XP/Vista®/7 platforms only; Windows...

G1000 Trainer on Windows 10

I have started my IFR training and need to get serious about learning to use the G1000. I have had no luck trying to get it to work on my Windows 10 machine. It used to run either MFD or PFD but not both (installed from a borrowed disk). I just purchased new from Garmin (9.01) and uninstall/reinstal...
