Maybe one day I'll make it up to this great gathering of airplanes but for now I'll have to settle for the three great gatherings right here in my backyard in Florida, all of which are less than a 40 minute flight away. :D  (Deland, Sebring & Sun-N-Fun)

For all those who may be going to Oshkosh, enjoy the trip and be safe.

Maybe we can finally meet at Deland this year.

Let's plan a SportCruiser gathering at Deland this year. It's November 1st thru the 3rd. I'll start another topic for that show about a month and a half out to give everyone time to fit it in their schedule.

For those of us who are not lucky enough to get to attend Oshkosh 2018 we can at least have the next best thing........Live Webcams and LiveATC!

The live webcams at Oshkosh are now up and running and we can also listen to the communications live all from the comfort of our favorite chair, WITH air conditioning. :P

I'm expecting MAJOR announcements to be made at Oshkosh 2018. I am hopeful that the darn ADS-B- Out issue is put to bed once and for all.  And for ALL of those that are courageous enough to still want to purchase a SportCruiser...this will be a great opportunity as the inventory of registered SCs at the Cruiser Hangar is up to 20. I'd treat it like a fire sale and bid really really low to start out with and see what happens.

I couldn't help but notice, according to the FAA registry, that Bountiful has not taken delivery of a single 2018 SC with the last registrations being for 2017 models in April 2018....yes, three months ago and NADA after the NOSE GEAR FAILURE during landing on May 25th. 

I saw the latest inventory listed on Barnstormers which was updated on 7/15/2018 listing a 2017 for $156,900 and a new 2018 for $169,900. But, the best price on the market seems to be for the 2017 with only 35 TTSN listed by Jonathan Trunz (NC)  at only $149,000....if it's still available.

Just got an email from Dynon and their new products that they will be showcasing at Oshkosh. They have a new D3 Pocket Panel that is touch screen with synthetic vision and and new, dual band portable ADS-B traffic and weather receiver. Be sure you stop by their booth and check them out. They also have forums going all week for those interested.

On that same note Garmin is also hosting seminars all week and they have daily seminars on "ADS-B solutions". Maybe one of you forum members that are attending can personally invite ANYONE from the CSA tent over to listen to the seminar. It will likely fall on deaf ears but you can say you made an attempt. :D

Hey CSA or Josh (since I know you lurk here :ph34r:), do you think you'll actually make an announcement this year for a solution to the fast approaching 2020 ADS-B deadline??? Your PAYING AND SO FAR STILL LOYAL customers would like answers and they dont wish to see the the proverbial can kicked down the road yet again. :P 

Just so the CSA group is aware, Garmin offers an ADS-B "out" solutions for every "flavor" of legacy SportCruiser no matter what transponder configuration they have, it's called the GDL-82. You should have a look at it while you are at Air Venture. :D
