    As those of you who made BACFest and some of the rest of you might have heard through the grapevine…BAC is working on a web site make over. Really more than a makeover – more of a brain transport. There are a number of technical, functional and security issues with the current website code base. The current site was a great starting point but other than some tweaking and all the data and posts we have poured into it hasn’t seen a major rework since the very early days of the club five years ago (which is 4 score and then some in Internet years). The goal of the club and the hard working volunteers of the web site working group are to bring you a new site in Q1 of 2010 – with all of your old data but plenty of new value added.

    First, Before we go into more detail we’ll highlight that there is a plug for some volunteer help at the end – more details at the bottom.



    After several months of evaluation we have decided to go with a commercial package for the base of the new site – but it is a new major version will possibly have some teething issues. The new site will be based on the vBulletin CMS 4.0 software – which is an evolution of the vBulletin Forums 3.8 software used on many sites (including several pilot sites like the Purple Board). ...

    We went shopping for an IFR GPS last winter and settled on the Garmin 300XL TSO GPS/COM for a couple of reasons:
    • IFR Certified GPS
    • IFR Legal COM
    • Good Price (<$3k) on Factory Reconditioned Units
    We chose against a Garmin 420/430 option for a few reasons:
    • No real extra functionality
    • Net Extra Cost of $2k-$4k (Used/New)
    • $3k+ Upgrade Cost to WAAS
    The unit has a somewhat different menu structure than the 430/530 series, some like it more, some less. Either way it is quite a bit better than the King KLN series of IFR GPS. As I've gotten used to it and used it actively I find I like it actually very easy to use. Most primary features can be activated in a net of 1-3 knob twists and 3-5 button pushes, secondary features (various nav, air, GPS, performance calc options) take a few more twists or buttons but not any worse than a 400/500 Series unit. The display is overall very readable but sometimes washes out a bit in direct sunlight. The inverted/auto-dimmed display is identical to that on the Garmin 327/330 transponders and is very readable without glaring at night. Feature wise the 300XL has the same features as a Garmin 420 (the GPS/COM version of the 430) minus the datalink, basemap and non-GPS approaches for "advisory" use. For "legal" IFR usage the 300 can do everything the 420 can until the 400/500 series get their WAAS upgrades (which will now set you back $3k-$5k installed if you don't already own your 400). The extra value of a 420/430 comes in a few areas:
    • WAAS Upgradability to VNAV/LNP Approaches
    • Base Map w/Terrain
    • Availability of Data Link Options (Weather, TIS, etc)
    All of these extras except the terrain/basemap have substantial extra costs. The GDL 69 box for datalinked weather for instance costs more than a complete Garmin 496 which has the value of being portable to the car or other aircraft. So it is up to you as to whether the extra $2k-$4k is money well spent or not. Currently the 300s are going for <$3k for a factory reconditioned unit with full 1 year warrenty. The cost savings of the 300 is somewhat offset by the need for an additional annunciator/switch panel (cost $600-$1000 installed) but still substantial. At "new" pricing the units are less of a deal especially when factoring in the annunciator cost. Right now if you have the $$ to spend new I would buy a 480 with WAAS/VNAV/LPB out of the box or wait for the Garmin 420/430/530 upgraded units to be available. But if you really want an IFR GPS now and can't afford a 420/430 these units are a fine option. The money you save can pay for quite a bit else as well including an add-on Garmin 496 with weather ...

    $$ Aero Fairings Of Canada This is a Canadian manufacturer of non-approved replacement external fairings, made of fiberglass using Vinylester resin (a very good type that is also used in the Express and Glasair, as two examples). I am pursuing some additional information. They will offer BAC members a 20% discount off their list prices. Note that their website photo seems to show a one-piece tailcone, but the one they sell is actually a two-piece unit. The parts are made to order from their large mold inventory, but lead times are pretty short.

    Unfortunately, the parts do not include any FAA-approved paperwork. If you wish to install them, your A&P-IA will have to apply for a Form 337 Field Approval, and the manufacturer may have to furnish "approved data" in order to get the field approval. If one of our members accomplishes this, a copy of that 337 will certainly help support future field approval requests from others. Aero Fairings has no plans to pursue an FAA-PMA certification, nor STCs, because in Canada there is a workaround that owners can use to install the fairings without paperwork.

    Their prices, when converted to USD, are very attractive. For example, wingtips run $345 CD, which converts to about $235 USD; as opposed to the price of $300 USD at Globe Aero. The following is the message BAC received from Aero Fairings.

    "We can supply most of the exterior fairings installed on the BAC club members' single engine Beechcrafts. Please refer to the Beech section of our web site: www.aerofairings.ca"

    $$ Aircraft Engravers Aircraft Engravers produces custom panel overlays of many different styles, colors, and materials. Their custom overlays can make aged or modified panels look like new. They also make radio faceplate overlays that can make many older radios (such as the King KX170 series) look like new.

    In addition to the overlay services, AE is also capable of providing custom engraving on items such as your fuel filler caps. For example, you can have your N-number, fuel grade and capacity, and useable fuel engraved on your filler caps. This meets the placarding requirements of the A1CE Type Certificate, so you no longer have to deal with replacing the damaged filler neck decals.

    Wayne at AE will give a BAC member discount of 10% on single orders. If a group of members merge their efforts and order four to seven pieces, with a single invoice and shipping address, the discount rises to 15%. I have installed their engraved caps on a Glasair I built, and have used their radio faceplate and panel overlays on two different planes. Thoughtful design and placement of a new overlay can make an old panel look almost like new, as (for example) it can hide unused or mismatched holes, and can conceal scratched paint.

    Custom Ducts produces custom-length ducts, SCAT or SCEET, with bonded collars on each end. This greatly enhances durability on ducts that have to be removed and replaced during maintenance. It also helps prevent inner liner separation on lined ducts.

    Jonathan Kinney is the owner-operator of this small business. He will provide a 5% discount to BAC members on orders up to $100. Orders over $100 will receive a 10% discount. You will be expected to identify yourself as a BAC member, and provide your member number. Jonathan has the option of contacting a BAC Board officer to confirm that the member number coincides with the name on the charge card being used.

    THERE IS FINALLY A BETTER WAY! We use the best available silicone ducting and vulcanize two .020 layers (or doublers) of fiberglass reinforced silicone on each end of the ducting. The outer doubler extends 1.5 inches back from the end, and the inner doubler (SCAT only) approximately 1 inch. Both the inner support wire and the outer support string are encased between the doublers, greatly reducing the possibilities of unraveling. Ducts are fabricated to the nearest 1/2 inch, and priced individually by size and length. Shorter outer doubler lengths are available for special applications.

    MICRO Vortex Generators for the Beech 19A, B19, M19A,
    23, A23, A23A, A23-19, A23-24, B23, C23, A24, A24R, B24R,
    C24R are now FAA STC approved and ready for installation
    on your airplane. This jet age technology provides a reduction
    in stall speed, improved stabilator authority, reduced landing
    and takeoff roll.

    The Micro Vortex Generators are manufactured under our
    FAA PMA from aircraft grade 6063-T6 aluminum, alodined to
    a Boeing mil-spec, ready for painting.

    Micro vortex generators are small metal blades placed in a spanwise line aft of the leading edge of the wing. They control airflow over the upper surface of the wing by creating vortices that energize the boundary layer. This results in improved performance and control authority at low airspeeds and high angles of attack.

    Here is a follow-up on 07/11/2005 containing an endorsement:

    http://www.microaero.com/CS_PDF/Beech/Musketeer_CS.pdf

    Micro VG Kit for the Beech Musketeer is now FAA STC approved. The STC certification flights were conducted at our headquarters in Anacortes, Washington (just North of Seattle) and STC#SA0115SE covering all Musketeer models. VGs are full span on the wings, on both sides of the vertical stabilizer and on the bottom (BOTTOM) of the stabilator. You get reduced stall speed, reduced landing distance, much better crosswind control, smoother ride in turbulence and a more stable instrument platform.

    The Musketeer that we used for the STC certification flights is owned by Ron Sellers who flew it for the first time with the Micro VGs installed and sent us the following E:

    ?I didn?t really notice much of a change enroute home to Troutdale, but when I slowed down to set up for approach and landing --- HOLY COW !!!!!!!!!. The effect of the VGs is amazing. I really felt the difference as soon as I put in the first notch of flaps and I flew the approach 5 kts slower than normal. The plane handled like an airliner, and the landing distance reduction was incredible. Usually I have to come in pretty slow and use a lot of braking to make the second turnoff. Today, I landed slower and use no brakes to slow down, and was at least 200-300 feet short of the turnoff.?

    ?I?ll keep you posted as I gain more experience. Thanks again for letting me participate in this project. I will do everything I can to get the good word out to other Musketeer owners.? ------ Ron Sellers, Troutdale, Oregon.
    Editor's note: Ron Sellers is a current BAC member.

    The Musketeer VG Kit is $1450. If you want us to paint it to match your airplane we need a paint name and number which is in your aircraft records. There is a $200 charge for painting. With your order we need N-number, serial number, shipping address and any credit card or COD. I look forward to shipping you a Micro VG Kit for your Musketeer.

    $$ Welcome to Bogert International (Bogi-bars, wheel jacks, and much more) Thanks to a request from member David Snodgrass, Bogert International has joined the growing list of participating suppliers offering BAC members worthwhile discounts on their products. They will also purchase a BAC membership, as have some other providers, in order to help keep tabs on questions, etc. Here is the current announcement by Kathy Bogert. Please visit the Bogert website and view the broad range of products (tow bars, jacks, jack pads, gear stands, specialty tools, and much more. Bogert also makes FAA-PMA copper battery cable kits to replace OEM aluminum cables. While they do not currently list the 19/23/24 (I believe that all the 76s and 77s are copper), if we demonstrate a member market for replacement cables, we can approach Kathy.

    While it is in Kathy's text, please make note that the 10% member discount is a year-round discount offer on all their products. Kathy also plans to offer limited-time specials on various products from time to time. For example, she is offering members a ten dollar discount on the $79 Bogi-bar. This offer reflects a % discount on the Bar, and is good through February 02, 2005.

    Mike, Cloyd and David,

    We will join BAC before the end of the year. I don't suspect we will be posting much. If we do, it will be in direct response to the subject in the thread. I agree it is a good thing to moderate the forum.

    Bogert Aviation is able to offer all BAC members in good standing a 10% discount on our entire product line year round, and reserve the right to sweeten the deal occasionally.

    Sweetened deals will run for a specified time and specified price. These items will typically be linked to the release of a new product, regional/national fly-ins or when we are overwhelmingly overstocked.

    Originally you requested a discount on our Bogi-Bar. You've got it! The Bogi-bars are normally $79.00. Let's take $10.00 off any Beech Bogi-Bar until February 2, 2005 for all BAC members. And... remember the 10% is good on anything year round.

    Orders can be placed on the web at www.bogert-av.com or call us direct at (800) 627-8088. Orders could also be faxed in to (509) 735-2106.

    $$ TKM-Michel Electronics - Discounted Radios - MX170/MX12 NOTE!! This is a false website name being used as a "place-holder"; it is not intended to be a valid website address! TKM does not have a retail website.

    I have reached an agreement with TKM-Michel, known in the electronics trade as a major manufacturer of test and measuring equipment. TKM makes the MX series of slide-in replacement radios. In our aircraft, the most common application is for the King KX170 series radios, and the Narco MK12 radios. You can view the links for the MX radios on the BAC website, for detailed info. In summary, they are modern digital flip-flop radios, with frequency storage, that can slide into the same tray when the old radio comes out.

    Now the best news. TKM will sell factory-refurbished radios to BAC members, complete with a one-year factory warranty, for only $1,200. This is hundreds of dollars below the discounted new cost from dealers, and hundreds of dollars below the typical eBay sales price. This offer is subject to availability. Call Kathy at TKM, 480-991-5351, email TKMRadios@aol.com to purchase a radio. Tell her that you are a BAC member, and that Mike Rellihan sent you.

    TKM provides excellent service. Not only are their repair rates very reasonable (a recent face refurbishment, with new buttons, cost me $80), but Kathy will ship you a free loaner radio for the price of shipping, if you need it during a repair. Their radios are as reliable, if not more reliable, than those they replace. To top it off, my MX170B has better/clearer receive audio than my Garmin GNS430, and I regularly receive comments that it sounds better on transmit as well. Not too shabby.

    Another BAC member benefit. Hope you are able to take advantage of it!

    $$ Clarity Aloft Headsets $$ Clarity Aloft is offering BAC members a discount on their revolutionary headsets. From now through May 1st BAC Members can purchase the headsets for $450 (retail is $650). To order, call 612-747-3197 and identify yourself as a BAC member.

    The Clarity Aloft headsets employ patented Comply Canal Tips, composed of soft visco-elastic foam, the same foam tips used in advanced hearing aids. More than simple earplugs, these foam tips provide full spectrum noise reduction: 35-45dB of attenuation. This advanced technology has been lab tested to prove that visco-elastic passive noise reduction (VPNR) is superior to active noise reduction (ANR), especially in the speech frequencies, precisely where clarity of sound and hearing protection is most needed for aviation communications.



    Features and benefits:
    • Superior clarity of sound
    • Lightweight, but rugged enough to meet military specifications
    • Better noise reduction than ANR in the speech frequencies

    $$ Rosen Sunvisor Home Page Long acknowledged as the "Industry Leader", Rosen sunvisors are installed as factory original equipment on aircraft of every category ranging from the Cessna 172 to the Boeing 777. Rosen has extended a discount offer of $30 off list price, to BAC members. Please refer to their discount sheet in the Downloads section of BAC.

    Designed by pilots, for pilots, Rosen visors offer unparalleled safety and comfort. Our optically pure lens material offers the pilot these benefits:

    Unrestricted visibility.
    Enhanced feature definition in hazy conditions.
    99% reduction of damaging ultraviolet light.
    Both our Monorail and NSA visor designs allow the lens to be positioned anywhere across the windshield or side windows that direct sunlight creates a problem, then stowed out of the way when not needed. Our precision machining standards produce mechanical assemblies that move fluidly, tension firmly and stay in position.

    With STC\'d visor systems for most certified aircraft flying, and the unequalled quality that goes into every Rosen system, we think you\'ll agree that there is no better sunvisor value on the market.
    $$ Norris Hibbler - Aircraft And Marine Assurance Norris Hibbler has been providing discounted insurance rates to BAC members; particularly on the first renewal. All member feedback for this agency has been very positive.
