    Last time I was replacing smoke detector batteries I kept hearing a low battery chirp after I'd done them all. I couldn't localize which one was causing a problem and then I realized it was my...

    What does your operating limitations say? This is where you must start.

    Why would you want to risk your life on an instrument approach with a GPS that doesn't have proper integrity monitoring?

    I haven't heard lately, but one of my friends was planning to go "camp" in the Hilton and they hadn't yet cancelled the "show rates."

    Lots of additional restrictions for 135 ops, but that doesn't mean the FAA is against the alternative for non-commercial ops.

    It is based on the judging criteria. It was 1965 back when I first started to come to Oshkosh in 1992 and had moved up in jerky steps. It's not a set number of years. You'd have to ask the...

    You can go sit on the deck at the Hilton and have them serve you food and drinks and watch the occasional runway 9 arrival.

    Your aircraft has to be manufactured prior to the end of December 1970 (at least by the current rules. I should have said aircraft rather than people.

    Really, where did the FAA make that preference known? It's not even an event if you're instrument capable and even if not, it's just another thing you have to do adequate planning for.

    I've been attending since 1992. Haven't missed a year and I'm not particularly broken up about the cancellation this year. I've got all the Vintage opeartions computers here anyhow so we can sit...

    It's not intended to be used as such, it just gets a small display so it can fit into a "transponder-sized" piece of real estate. They expect you'll use it to drive something else.

    Because unlike VORs and ADFs, certificated planes need appropriate TSO approval for IFR use even for enroute and terminal (let alone approaches). The GNX does not have this. The FAA relented on...

    Probably not, but that usually isn't a problem. Occasionally the altimeter is crap and needs to be replaced.

    It appears to have all those things (including the ADSB out). The 180 in question is old enough not to have additional restrictions in the POH (it doesn't even likely have a regulatory POH).

    Doesn't look like anything needs to be added for basic IFR training. I'm not sure I'd actually fly such a thing in IMC. You've got only 1 (ancient but passable) NAV radio so that will be...
