Dynon found a problem with their heated pitot tube that could result in water getting inside and freezing in an area that is not adequately heated so they sent out a notice of recall. Fortunately they will ship out a replacement pitot tube at no charge and allow 30 days to send back the old pitot or send in photos documenting that it has been destroyed. So today I removed the old pitot tube and installed the new replacement. It wasn’t a big deal really. It just took a few hours working awkwardly under the left wing. This photo shows the new pitot tube installed.

First Cross Country Flight

Sunday 2 Feb 2015

Today Denise and I flew out to Lake Havasu, AZ on our first real cross country flight in the RV. It was about 175 nm each way from Corona and took about 1 hr, 15 min each way. We landed at HII which has a beautiful 8000 ft runway. We parked for lunch at the Blue Baron restaurant and then flew back to KAJO in time to get home for the Super Bowl. Here is a shot of Denise buckling up for the return flight.
