  1. Here is a trip to Phoenix from my home airport in my little CJ... When I'm in the CJ I usually have to wait at the end of the line for takeoff...that 737 got a ATC hold so I got to jump ahead of him! Liftoff from 17R...the AA farm in the background. Nice shot of downtown Dallas (One of those buildings is one I work at) In fact, why don't I just show you a shot from my window at work? (one of the dozens of SWA's that buzz by my window everyday into KDAL) That is the "building with a hole in it" right next to ours.) She is a good looking bird! Another glam shot, hehe. I turned the RXP GTN's screen to all black by turning off the Topo option (2 taps on the screen) as it really helps to simplify the view....no need for terrain awareness at 40,000 feet! Beautiful mountains below a lovely plane. You can't deny Carenado puts stunning detail in their models. Easing down into the pattern, the GTN set on Chart view...sometimes I like it better with its North-Up orientation vs the map on the ND with it rotating as you turn. Easy to see here that I'm just south of the localizer, going to capture in about 10 seconds. On the GTN I can also easily see in this view that my radio is tuned to the correct localizer freq. When you first go to this screen you'll notice your view of the map is limited because the relevant info for this chart is on the left in its own window. Simply touch the Split button and the map goes full screen. You're able to zoom in and out, pan all around the map with hand gestures common to any tablet user (or if you have it on your monitor, common mouse clicks and moves) Perfectly lined up now, gear coming down. Looking at the CJ2's instrumentation (cross-checking), you can see the APPR mode is engaged and I am in fact lined up right on the dots on the PFD. GTN mode on Safe Taxi® mode to get to our parking (well you just have to zoom in to a certain level to see the taxiways. The level of zoom it appears at is configurable in the menu...but for those who may not see the taxiways..beware that you can't have your declutter level set to its max...it declutters the taxiways too, hehe. Its just a few clicks to fix it). Ahhh....my little CJ gets to spend the night in the house tonight! All tucked in, beautiful sunset in the background (with a palm tree!) I wish Carenado put an option on the popup menu to remove the pilots from view (esp when it's parked) I have a few more flights lined up with some new birds, I'll keep showing you more features I use (and discover) with the RXP GTN as I progress in my GA career!
  2. Here is a series from my latest flight using the ever-useful RXP GTN. For reference (I mentioned in my last post but not everyone views every post, hehe), The GTN usually sits on my lap on a tablet, I drag the screen onto the main view for the screenshots to reference how I'm using it for navigation). Here is the tail end of my KJFK to KDFW flight. I did it to see if I could fly out of the storm on the East Coast that has so many flight cancelled...Did not get screens of the departure ( but it was a blast...an "arctic" blast. hehe) Lined up on final 35 Center. Here I displayed the chart for the ILS, you can see the chart view as well as the map view show the aircraft's position, very handy. :) Almost there....crabbing into the crosswind....For those who know the area...that is 183 I'm just about to pass over. Totally unrealistic as it's not crammed with bumper to bumper traffic! Short final now...an AA 737 in new colors taking 35L for departure...with a classic AA 737 holding. Over the numbers...feeling for the runway. With 13,401 feet to work with, you can afford to float a little, hehe. that AA turned out to be an Airbus! I know in real life (at this moment) 35C is closed for maintenance, but I like this runway, and its flightsim. Notice how the GTN is all ready to guide me thru a missed approach with a click of a button, so nice! Clear of 35C and holding to cross 35L...that Classic AA 737 just rotating in front of me. Ground called and said "Citation 5811, cross 35L, right on Lima, left on Yankee, taxi to the Corp Aviation ramp. So I popped over to the Safe Taxi® screen to monitor my position...invaluable tool on a huge mass of concrete like KDFW and a dizzying array of taxiways. As I was taxiing I had a little time to kill....so I popped into the Fuel Planing page to see how my fuel burn was. Turning on to Yankee....almost there.... Nobody puts Baby in the corner! Oh wait...I guess the rampers at DFW do, LOL. The GTN even shows you in blue text boxes what the buildings are...in this case the DFW Corporate Aviation center. Sorry for the heavy jpg compression and bad rez on the screenshots....with a 55" monitor at 4K...full screens with no compression would be megabytes huge...I try to keep my screens under 250k. Will post my KTEX>KJAC trip shortly.
  3. Hehe...only in flightsim is this statement not "inflammatory" Just finished my new PC update after a complete Windows 10 "update" meltdown. (well still adding some addons). Went from a 4790k which I loved, to an 8700k...which screams! Anyway, did a flight in my CJ2 and the trusty RXP GTN keeping me from getting lost...and thought I'd post my 1st screen with the new rig. After I passed the the WAZZU waypoint outside of Juneau, my wife asked where my plane was. I told her to look at the screen, just up from WAZZU....so she quips back....."oh so you're up the WAZZU?" It got a laugh so I had to share it! So in the future you can fly there to say you've been up the WAZZU in Juneau!
  4. Flew from KLAS to KINW (Winslow, AZ). Oaaaay.....I'm standing on the corner of the the FBO after a nice flight in my trusty CJ2. Oh no he didn't.....Is that a girl (my Lord) in a flatbed Ford?
  5. LoL....the names of some fixes can really crack you up. 🤣 Who doesn't like a little toe jam right after departure? Just outta Eagle County (KEGE), on my way to Seattle. Flanking shot of my CJ2 and some beautiful mountains. (Changed the color of the default N68FF because it's the company CFO's favorite) 😉
  6. I took the TBM from Denver to Telluride, now I'm hopping in the CJ2 for a flight to Jackson Hole! Snapped a shot of this lovely bird outside the property behind the fence as I was coming into the airport for the flight. Starting my takeoff role...man there are a LOT of biz-jets at this airport! Set the RXP GTN unit to display terrain for obvious reasons, hehe Glam shot of the CJ2, really like this livery. Since I had a co-pilot on this flight I gave him the captain's chair and I dropped in back for a few to check out the gorgeous sunset. Nice full moon as a backdrop Descending into the mountains, just coming up on the map overlay on the GTN Turning on to Final Handed the camera to the copilot to grab this shot as he follows the published approach on the RXP GTN..the Tetons just off to the left. Been there in real life, it is a majestic set of mountains! Landing was uneventful. Hopped out of the seat to grab this shot of the office before we shut her down. Plugs and flags in, putting her to bed for the evening. The Tetons make a very nice backdrop, don't ya think?
