    Longranger Cabin cargonet

    You'll save a ton of money if you use one designed for vehicles rather than for aviation. https://www.cargocatch.com/truck-cab-cargo-net.html http://www.cargonets.ca https://raingler.com

    Probably a limitation for Excel

    Garmin 296 TOPO question

    This is correct. If you don't have the Garmin Topo 4 softwar no your computer you'll need the installation CD: https://www.gpscity.ca/garmin-topo-canada-microsd-card

    Convert .Kmz Files To .Gdb

    It's really very simple and quick and ony requires a few clicks with the right software. Can be done easily in under a minute. You'll need Garmin Base Camp: https://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4435 Download and install it on your computer. Launch Garmin Base Camp. Click on "My Collection" on the top of the left side bar. Now click the menu: File → Import into "My Collection" Locate and click the KMZ file and click Open. Make sure the imported KMZ is highlighted and then click the menu: File → Export "The file you imported" In the window that pops up make sure you click the "Format:" and select GDB. Then click Export. I've created a video demonstrating this. It was created on a Mac but on Windows shold be almost identical:
  5. CEP can be installed on any helmet. It includes a port (connector) that is mounted on the helmet. The helmet needs to be drilled in order to fit this in place. It's tricky on carbon fibre helmets, needs to be done with the correct hole saw and technique: https://www.meritapparel.com/product/ssk-port-cep-port/ CEP has two ear plug tips that are attached to a connector that plugs into the port above: https://www.meritapparel.com/product/ssk-speaker-harness-cep-speaker-harness/ See also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCGY6SVWNCQ I recommend getting custom moulded ear tips (instead of sponge ones) noise reduction is better and comfort is greatly enhanced: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vlvqp3bo1g
  6. IF you want CEP, I'd recommend getting custom molded ear monitors, as they block sound much better and far more comfortable for exnded use: Westone makes these: https://www.westone.com/store/downloads/access/2016/GSA_CATALOG_2016.pdf
  7. These are some pictures I took. Most of the installation was pretty straightforward. Needed to fabricate a "special" washer to seat the mic in the halemt plastic parts. In order to disassemble the Lightspeed Zulu, you will need to cut a few plastic parts to be able to extract the interconnecting wire between the earphones. If you do it carefully, you can o it in such a way that the headset can be re-assembled to be used again as a headset. Lightspeed Zulu Gallet LH250.zip

    Excel To Gpx Waypoint Conversion Tool

    Yeah, it seems to be a limitation of the macro language of Excel. I'm not sure why you would want such a long description. Foreflight description only supports only the first 30-40 characters. Garmin GPS's only support 16 characters or so for description.

    Created version 3, now supports output to GPX (Garmin GPS and BaseCamp) and also KML (Google Earth and ForeFlight) Excel2GPS v3.00.xlsm
  10. You can track duty times with Coradine Aviation's LogTen Pro:

    Rookie Move in Shearwater

    Good idea! Also, submit it for Graphology Analysis.
  12. I made this Flight Duty tracker a while back. You enter 1ˢᵗ date to start tracking in cell A5. Piot's name in cell A3 Click "Jump to today" button on the top to make the spreadsheet jump to today's date. It resets Flight time accumulated after a 5 day period of no flying. If it meets your requirements you're more than welcome to use it Enter flight time in column C. Duty start/end in columns P and Q. When limits are close to being exceeded they're highlighted in yellow, when they're critical in orange, when exceeded in red. The sheet is also optimized to print well on a printer with headers on each page. If you need any modifications or corrections, let me know, I can try to implement those on my downtime.

    Bell 206 Power Check Calculator

    Some companies like the company i work for demand their pilots do a power check once a week. That way it's easy to follow the trend of the engine.
