You said that I shouldn't use ussyorktown as my handle. I am entitled having spent 2.5 years of its most interesting time on her as ship's company. I explain myself and you say that I shouldn't-isn't that what you asked for?
I'll check on www.yorktownsailor.com and see why it is taking the day off. Thanks for telling me.
It's not a new idea! I have a friend with a homebuilt that had his sole glass panel unit removed from his airplane for repair. No back up airspeed or altimeter. He decided to go fly with his Ipad. He is lucky he has a lot of time flying the airplane otherwise he would have spun in from letting his airspeed get to low. His pitch attitude didn't look right and it didn't feel right. He said never again. I know it's not the same as what your doing, but he almost killed himself and a passenger trying to use the speed off the Ipad. By the way it was using the Ipad for speed setting up for landing that got him in trouble.
