    If he did not have the APU running he was landing on single hydraulic system powered by the RAT. Controls can get pretty "jiggy" under those circumstances. Think of it like trying to fly your Cub...

    Certainly fine to live the life of "the silent service". I would say this. Maine has a lot of MOAs and IR and VRs. Personally if I wanted to fly silently while the rest of the world flew out loud, I...

    Most Caravans since the early 2000's have G1000 and I am willing to bet since this is a working aircraft it would have ADS-B. In any event even if it was Mode C your ADS-B in from ATC would give you...
