See my previous post. With the Dynon like the Garmin G500/600/1000, no GPS--->No Attitude.
The Dynon D10A doesn't require GPS for attitude.

Re: Types of work on the aircraft registered as experimental.

Also, in Canada an Amateur-Built must be, well, amateur-built. So you can import a kit, but not a complete airplane.

So, can mcc or LogTen also track duty and flight times for you? I've been using a spreadsheet an old employer was using but it is set up for the old rules.
If it's a spreadsheet, you can probably edit the formulas in the spreadsheet to check the new rules.

Re: Do you check your killer items just prior to takeoff?

Since i've just done a runup before takeoff, I expect the critical things are already checked... It runs, it runs at elevated power setting, mixture can shut the engine off, flaps set for t/o, etc. Last check before rolling out is BBBD, Belts (on and tight) Baggage (secured) Brakes (work) Doors (clo...

Re: Coast to Coast Flight - Aerodrome recommendations

While you're going, check www.100ll.ca for fuel prices and report back to help keep it updated! (I run the site). I also try to include notes about landing fees or fuel surcharges, so you can check for those as well.

Re: Realities of Nav Canada and family

The simple answer is to not reveal anything about family in the interview process. They can't legally ask, you aren't obligated to tell them, and they can't discriminate against you because of it. That said, it's a valid question to ask how others with families have made it through, and whether othe...

Just wait until you get to fly in something with a stick instead of a yoke, and with a tailwheel instead of a nosewheel. :)

Re: Elevator position for tailwind in taildragger

It doesn't matter where the advice is from. It has to make sense on its own merits. With the propellor turning, I don't believe the wind at the horizontal stabilizer is ever "from behind". Well, I know from first-hand experience (both in the plane and standing behind one) that the wind indeed can b...

Re: Elevator position for tailwind in taildragger

Somebody somewhere is missing the point. If the tail is lifted, it's because the prop blast blows past the tail in the fore-to-aft direction, whatever the wind is doing. In which case, why pussy about with "neutral" aileron? Stick back, to keep the tail down, just like in a headwind. It's you who's...

If you stand by the tail of any piston single with a regular horizontal stabilizer, with the prop turning, which way is your hair blown? Does it depend on the wind direction? What hair? Seriously though, it depends on the wind direction and speed. My piston single at idle will not "overpower" some ...

This network of crowd-sourced antennas will never be a replacement for NavCanada's ADS-B requirements.
Absolutely not, nor is that the intent. The intent is to leverage the equipment people already have (ADS-B-in systems) to offer them functionality that NavCanada won't.
