  1. Same thing happened on the ship I was flying. company replaced it with Diamond Inc Gauge. Far more readable and cheaper as far as I was told. http://www.diamondjinc.net/bell-407/
  2. Of course you have choice, you don't have to get the vaccine.
  3. if you fly a 206B it's substantial ! If a 205 it's negligible.
  4. As I said already in a previous post, our company's stand pipes are copper, they save weight, but lack the rigidity to support the weight of the drum.
  5. God this topic is boring. Can't you move it to a Covid specific forum?
  6. Crumb trail stops when speed is low. I've asked them several times to make a switch to make it sensitive for helicopters but they just say they'll add it to feature requests. To save a waypoint of your current location simply type D in the search bar and tap Enter, tap Save, Enter Name and tap Save again. Super easy and quick. Yes, to see numerous waypoints that are close to eachother you need to zoom in. Garmin is the same.
  7. This makes it easier to grip the barrel when lifting, however, it doesn't increase the moment for lifting the drum. Vs a 3' long 2x4, which greatly reduces the risk of throwing out ones back. Also, each tour I might end up in a different location. So rather than carrying with me my own custom bung wrench, I just carry 5 screws and 2 pieces of hardware that are easy to install, weigh almost nothing, take up very little room in my bag and are dirt cheap.
  8. Not sure why you would want to load a layer with 200,000+ waypoints, however if you load it as user waypoints instead of layer, then all user waypoints are searchable. File limit is 200MB. Typical waypoint is around 510 characters in KML, this would equate to around 400k waypoints! However this an be increased tenfold if the file is saved as KMZ (Zipped KML) as it's compressed and can accommodate many more waypoints. I'm pretty sure Garmin devices were limited to 3000 user waypoints. ForeFlight supports all Lat/Lon formats, perhaps you didn't read the user manual but you can enter in
  9. Overflight of Built-up Areas or Open-air Assemblies of Persons during Take-offs, Approaches and Landings https://lois-laws.justice.gc.ca/eng/regulations/SOR-96-433/FullText.html#s-602.12
  10. Works very well for day VFR low level ops. Not sure what you mean. If anything it’s far superior to the Garmin aviation handhelds.
  11. Lightspeed Zulu works 100 times better than Blu-Link. Superb audio quality. BluLink always distorted for me.
  12. Time to switch to iPad Mini with ForeFlight. You'll never want to work with a Garmin again!
