Dave, does your new mission include an airplane of some sort?

Absolutely!

We're spending a lot more time at our second home and given the distance, we typically have 2 weather patterns to navigate through. This equates to the need for an IMC capable plane and we'd also like to do the 500nm in a bladder-friendly single leg of ~3 hrs. My wife is adamant on a chute so this means I'll be in the market for a Cirrus after some lucky person buys my pampered Sting.

Off topic, but how do you like the GDL-82? Looking at one for my CT...hard to beat the ease of install.

Your airplane is going to make somebody very happy.

Simple install, worked right off the bat. The most difficult part, which was simple, was putting in a toggle switch for 'anonymous mode'. I've asked for verification of the performance off the FAA website three or four times and have 'passed' each time.

Dave - who installed your GDL-82? I'm getting so much conflicting information from avionics installers in my area that I'm going nuts. Was an LOA required? Are there drawings for installation in a Sting?

BTW - beautiful plane. If I didn't already have mine, I'd be all over yours.

I had SportAir in Little Rock do the install of the GDL-82 and they are putting it on the approved equipment list so no LOA is required.

JJay, contact Jesse Saint over in Dunnellon (X35) and talk with him. He's just west of Ocala. Did you pick your plane up from Eugene in Dunnellon or Williston? I can't remember. The company is Saint Aviation and his contact info is here:

https://www.saintaviation.com/contact.htm

If you fly over he can take care of it with no issues, no hassles and for a very reasonable rate. Great guy and very knowledgeable. I also have the GDL-82 and it's awesome and works flawlessly. You won't be disappointed at all.

I'll see Jesse tomorrow and will discuss it with him.

Shawn

PS- sorry to get off topic here. PM me if you want to.

I wholeheartedly endorse Jesse Saint. He has done work for me on multiple occasions and is very competant, resonable, and more importantly, honest. I plan on having Jesse install the GDL-82 on my CTSW this coming Spring.

Bumping my own post :-)

FYI -- I'll be listing my Sting with a Broker around the first of year so if you'r seriously in the market for a 127 KTAS Sting (did a square speed test today at 4500' and ~5400 rpm) now is the time to save $$$. I'll gladly chop the broker fee and you'll also likely save on sales/use tax (up to 8% in some states) since many states exempt 'occasional' sales from non-brokers (contact your tax accountant to make sure). Call me and let's talk!
