Claude or Simon,

Do you have a whisky compass?

Yes I do. I actually discussed it with the inspector, thinking that maybe it wasn't really needed. My thinking was that my Skyview ADAHRS, with its backup battery was a magnetic heading indicator that was independent of the electrical generating system. I had no intention of removing the whiskey compass and the inspector wasn't all that warm to my suggestion that it might not be needed.

I do think that there may be room for skipping the whiskey compass if you are otherwise adequately equipped, but it will depend on the inspector.

Excellente description Claude. I read the CAR this morning and was wondering what would really be needed...

I like the two cooling/defog fans. How Well do they work? What size are they? What are they wired to? Master switch?

They are 12vdc 52x10mm fans. They are switched, toggle is up and just left of the throttle. I don't use them often, but they work well for light defog.

Default Finished IFR Panel

Hi guys, just wanted to post the final photo of my upgraded Canadian IFR panel.

Yes I do have a E2B compass, behind the IPAD, never used it and probably never will.

Thanks Claude for some ideas of what the TC inspector wanted to see in terms of paper work. I found transport Canada to be very efficient, it was just a paperwork exercise.

Happy flying ,

Before and after photos. 500 hours and a few months of work.

Looks great Simon. What are you using as your second navigation source? I don't see anything on the panel.

Do you have problems with the iPad overheating in flight with it being that exposed?

Claude, thanks for posting your experience and advise on the lifting of the VFR restriction. I got my paperwork back today from Transport Canada and good to go! Time to get the panel power coated and labelled.

Cheers Jim

Claude, I followed your lead and the Toronto office approved my application in less than 3 weeks. Using the SI as a template for the application has to make it simpler for the inspector. The SI doesn’t call for it but I included a description of the flight tests I conducted on the VOR, ILS (approaches in VMC) and RNAV approaches in VMC.
