All right Scott,

What are you installing?

I am installing a 530W, Aspen PFD, STEC 30 A/P and RC Allen electronic attitude indiator. If the shop comes across a used one I'll also put in the Garmin digital transponder. We will be tearing out the entire vacuum system and the plane will be all electric. About halfway thru the process now, another 10 days or so.

Ok Scott,

It is April 14.   Where are the photos of the new panel.

OH, I like the carpet installation.

Got the plane back Wednesday. Only a couple trivial issues on the first flight Tuesday so they kept it overnight.  We flew again Wednesday afternoon and everything seems to be great. I flew both Friday and Saturday trying to get comfortable. Today I went up to the hangar, attached my battery charger and sat in the hangar with the panel fired up so I could adjust my preferences on the 530 and Aspen. The pic is of me flying a practice approach yesterday.  Easy to take pics when the autopilot is flying.

This forum software is the worst.  Here's a link to the pic.

Looks good,

A couple of fellows at OVS have the Aspen installed in their airplanes.   (Aztec, Piper 180, Navaho, Twin Comanche).     All say the same thing:   " I would not want to fly with out my Aspen"

Not being instrument rated yet I'm still learning how to fly an HSI, that serves no useful purpose for most of my flights. I do use the heading bug to fly the autopilot.

Scot, Give your self some time with the HSI and Heading Bug. I think in the end you will find that those two items will become some of your best friends, especially in IFR conditions. Dick

Scott,

Where were those campsite photos taken? I recently signed up for AACA website in the hoped of finding some nice places to fly in and camp. I'd much rather find a spot like the one you show in the photos through personal recommendation as compared to a website review.

Very nice panel upgrade by the way. We'll probably put the Aspen in N8834M in the next few years.

Thanks,

Eric
