Late this spring the weather and schedules lined up for us to take an overnight camping trip on the weekend to Ingalls Field which is a small airport (with a long runway) atop Warm Springs Mountain in the Shenandoahs. It was a bit cold and windy overnight but we had a great time and pretty […]
Aviation-related articles and videos.
Yes it can be done, by using a small translator app that runs parallel with the Stratux software and sends the data out formatted as X-Plane 11 packets. Development for this has pretty much reached as far as it can go, and I’ve since switched to ForeFlight due to incessant crash issues that Garmin couldn’t […]
Aviation Adventures organized a fly-in to the Williamsburg airport to visit Colonial Williamsburg which is only about 45 minutes away by air. It made for a fun outing and we met some great fellow pilots as well.
My quick fun flight out to Lake Anna just for the heck of it.
I created a small app that runs parallel to the stratux software so that the position and attitude can be displayed on Garmin Pilot (iPad or Android versions). It translates the websocket interface that the Stratux supplies and retransmits it in the X-Plane 11 format that Garmin Pilot uses to simulate position and attitude when […]
Updates, bug fixes and new features added to the “Rosco” Stratux AHRS, traffic and weather app.
Okay so here’s the problem. I started using Garmin Pilot because I didn’t have an iPad and it seemed like the best option at the time (about two years ago). Yes, I know there are lots of other options that provide nearly all or maybe even more now but once you get married to an […]
We were supposed to go to Ingalls Field but ended up just goofing around near the airport.
A couple months ago I cut together several short instructionals on building and setting up a Stratux ADS-B receiver. It doesn’t get into the weeds about building since it’s as simple as buying the parts and putting them together. Most of the video details creating the image on the SD card and connecting it to […]
A few days ago I opened the side cockpit door of my Cherokee 140 to find bird poop on the seats, floorboards and even some on the glare shield. At first I assumed something got through the hole for the nose gear and made it’s way through the hole for the rudder pedals but that […]
