XM satellite for the GTN650

With an optional XM satellite receiver and subscriptions, the Garmin GTN series can display NEXRAD radar, lightning data and other aviations weather information. It can also play satellite radio stations.

For pilots who want a fully integrated solution in a small, 2.64-in.-tall package, the GTN 650 is the perfect choice. The system combines GPS, COMM and NAV functions with powerful multifunction display capabilities like high-resolution terrain mapping, graphical flight planning, satellite weather, traffic display and much more.

Too young or Too old?

This week I have been at the hospital with my ageing father
whom is having a rough time with his health. I was called very early now 5 days
ago and had to rush to his bed side. I am very pleased however to be able to
announce that today his condition is improving rather quickly. As I and some
other family members sat, waiting for results we could not help but noticed how
young most all of the medical staff appeared to be. I’m not sure if it was
because they were actually young or if it’s just the fact that I’m getting
older and everyone appears to be younger.

As I dwelt upon our thoughts I was reminded of a conversation I overheard between a couple of
pilots. The topic was on their fear of ageing pilots in the cockpit and their
possible lack of ability to perform as Pilot in Command of an aircraft. The
argument between the two young pilots was as we grow older our reflects could
tend to slow down which in turn could cause a slower response in a rapidly
changing environment. My thoughts were why does a doctor have to be old and a
pilot have to be young?

As far as the doctor goes I lean back to the thought that
it’s just due to the fact that I’m getting older. On the other topic however, I
have to be honest and say that at one point in time  I would have
sided with the two young pilots. That’s not so much the case anymore. I have
watched and even had the opportunity to fly as first officer with some 20K +
hour pilots. I guess I can’t very well speak for all but as for the pilots I have flown
with all I can say is WOW. One opportunity I had was with a 20K + hour pilot
which is a former Delta airlines captain among various positions and is still
an active A&P inspector. We flew a piper Cherokee and he scared me to death
when he asked me how to start it. I later come to find out he was just pulling
my chain. When this veteran pilot buckled in, he strapped that airplane on and
it became an extension of his body. That airplane obeyed his every command.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not speaking for every older
pilot that may step into the right seat. Heck, I have seen some pilots who don’t
even need to be at the airport. The truth is I can show you both young and old
doctors and pilots that are masters of their fields.  What is the key? Well I feel it’s where your
heart is. That’s just my thoughts.

 

What are your thoughts? Leave me a note
below. What do you think KEEPS a pilot flying in their golden years?

Porsche Aircraft Experience

WOW! What a day it was at the Porsche Aircraft Experience this year at Peachtree Dekalb Airport (KPDK) in Atlanta, GA. I was there with the Super Hawk as a static display. Sean Hachem with Hawk Avionic and Mo Holcombe with Discovery Flying Club was also on hand as many interested spectators poked their heads in the door to view all the Super Hawk had to offer.

This year the Super Hawk sported it’s new Garmin GTN650. I am truly amazed at what Garmin has done with this new unit. With little pre-training I was able to pick right up on and use the GTN 650 like it had always been there.

 

For more information on the Super Hawk or any of it’s equipment feel free to contact me at tommy@priavtepilotinsider.com.

Also on hand was some of the coolest jets around. Some of them included Cessna with the Mustang, CJ3, the 400 and Sky Catcher. I was also able to tour and just for a moment sit left seat of a Gulf Stream G3.  

Now that’s arriving in style!

Some of the other aircraft’s represented included Pilatus PC-12, King Air and Daher-Socata.

I  must say however I was most impressed with the Total Eclipse Jet. I had the opportunity to talk with Rich Hayes the business development officer for the Atlanta, GA division of North American Jet Charter about the Total Eclipse.

With a 41,000′ ceiling and a range of over 1100 miles this single pilot jet proves to be both luxurious and efficient.

Rich Hayes and North American Jet Charter are currently operating in several location across the USA and in the process of opening a new division at my home airport, Cobb county Georgia’s own McCollum field KRYY.

Of course I can’t forget the 4 wheel beauties that was present as well. Unfortunately I was unable take the time to drive any of the Porsche’s that was on hand but I did sneak the opportunity to see how a few of them fit me.

It sure was hard to keep my focus on the task at hand with so much style, power and craftsmanship. Sitting in the seat of the Boxster S I could just feel all it had to offer without even moving. From the way the seat wrapped around me to the details of it’s instrument panel it’s not hard to see all the perfection these cars had to offer.

 

 

As I departed KPDK that day avoiding the wake turbulence of a G5 departing on a parallel runway I had to say it was a great day. The event was organized very well. As nice as the cars was I still lean toward the air. The left seat of the Boxster S compared to the left seat of the Gulf Stream G3………I’ll take the G3. No brainer , huh!

Thank you,
