I'd be curious to run a dial indicator on it to see if there might be a slight bend or if it is out of round. Could also use a micrometer if you don't have a lathe to chuck it in. Another thing to check is the level of the 5606. A lot of folks jus

You absolutely can use the same cards for either. They seem to be formatted differently, 1 for the nav data and the other for terrain/obstacles. You can get the Garmin subscription without the obstacles for less money than the Jeppesen data and I bel

Today was overcast @ 4000 and hazy, but good enough for a flight of two to breakfast. After that it was a return trip, the long way around. I do like the great climb rate this time of year.
