    An update. My Verizon phone doesn't work in SW Alaska but I just got a text from the owner of the plane. The problem turned out to be a loose pin in a connector for Lane B. It has been fixed by STOL Creek, which (news to me) is in Whitewater, KS - almost within gliding distance from where we put the plane in a hangar! How convenient is that?

    Quote: the AoA/stall warning squeal was often continuous even when taxiing slowly. Some way to suppress that tone would be a nice feature. It may exist, we just didn't get that far.

    Just touch the AOA indicator on the screen and it will mute it.

    Excellent news. That'll make the rest of the trip a bit less worrisome. Hope you've managed to have a nice Christmas up there, Alex!
