    I witnessed a near mid-air at my airport tuesday morning.
    C150 flying the pattern doing touch-n-goes,
    and a C185 amphib doing a straight-in.

    My home airport is about 15 miles away from the SEA mode C veil.
    So going without ADSB isn't practical.

    FWIW here's AOPA's rundown of where ADS-B out is required,...

    Thanks for posting that.

    I think it's immaterial whether you or anyone else thinks the premium is "reasonable".
    Priced a set of Cessna seat rails (or any other airplane parts) lately? Does the price seem reasonable?

    Have you thought about taking the easy way out & just installing the STC'd Grove brakes?
    I dunno where the price point is but I've heard he makes good stuff.

    Nice- clean, trim, and inexpensive too.
    Smart of EarthX to make a battery that will physically replace a PC680.

    Wow, that sounds like an age-ist remark. Surprising.
    I might expect that from a young punk, with no respect for his elders,
    but as I recall you're no youngster yourself.

    How about doing the flight review,
    then just not signing it off as "successfully completed"
    if their performance is not up to snuff?
    Seems more fair to the (in your opinion) lapsed pilot,

    I captured a screen shot of the tail end of that flight off FR24,
    looks like it had been cruising at 700' doing 80 knots.

    "Small plane" is relative-- compared to a 747, a King Air is small

    I didn't contact them.
    I'm not planning any such conversion (I already have a 470K)--
    just trying to expand my C180 knowledge.
    Isn't that what these discussion forums are for?

    Thanks guys.
    I am still curious about the compatibility of the later angle valve cylinders on an A or J case.
