Nice! You are too kind.

I was actually up flying today in a Maule, teaching FAA commercial flight maneuvers, weirdly.

He mentioned his VOR stopped working. While he preflighted I looked at under the dash and saw the VHF/UHF splitter and removed and replaced the coax BNC connectors to scrub the contacts. Sure enough when we got airborne the San Jose VOR and LOC were as clear as a bell on the 430. Told him to get some electrical contact cleaner

It’s always the connections, it seems.

PS Chandelles are ok, but wingovers sure are fun.
As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.
