This reads like an advertisement for me.   I was a bit confused about how the wifi works with the aircraft battery dead, but I'm guessing that had its own battery backup.   I think I'd rather have a backup battery for the radios.

Because it hasn't gone into service yet.  They just finished the airframe and it hadn't even flown.

Good to hear it's progressing!  Excellent news!   

Hopefully the process will wrap up fairly quickly now.

thanks, things are starting to come together and i'm seeing results of my hard work! I finish IOP today and have made myself available to the part 91 outfit i'll be flying with as of tomorrow. granted I won't get paid but hey, hours of turbine time in the ol' logbook don't care whether you're paid or not, lol!

if you have an hour to spare (ie. listen while you work) this is Lyle, the captain of the NWA flight back in 1990 arrested for flying while intoxicated telling his story about alcoholism and that morning the 3 crew members were arrested. kudos to him for his recovery and everything that followed. It's really a very very good story - unfortunately not many alcoholics have the same outcome. The program only gives back what you put into it.

Can't complain about BAD COFFEE either, for I am FREE LANCE since I left VW interamericana (winter 1968) because salaries were SO LOW that I earned more money working in the streets, charging only tips (lo que sea su voluntad). So, GOOD COFFEE is for me!! ::bow:: Morning in my kitchen at Hacienda Armonía MX:
