  • Looks Great Scott! I haven't got a chance to start mine yet with the Push Button, but can't wait. Should be finished this week.

  • I've now got about 5 hours on it up at 10k feet. Smooth, easy starting and about 1 gph lower fuel burn so far.

  • I'll preface my questions with the statements "Locks only keep honest people out.", and "It would be extremely easy to hot-wire any of our aircraft." With that being said, I have a couple questions;

    1. With the keyswitch removed, what security does your aircraft have to prevent someone from starting the engine without the key?
    2. Is the push-button start integrated with a key FOB or an NFC (near field communication) device?

  • Hi, no keyswitch. Only door key. However, twins don't have keyswitches. and on number 2 above, no.

  • Never owned a twin, so I wasn't aware about the "no keyswitch". Thank you Scott.

  • I am curious how your push button starter works. Do you flip both switches to ON and then push start? For run up do you turn each to off as you would R/L mag checks in a keyed system?

  • BillCampbell - I just picked my Plane up today and it works Perfectly! I Love It! And Yes, You turn ON the Mags by pressing the 2 Rocker Switches to UP Position. And Yes, You turn each one OFF then ON during your Mag Check during your Run-Up. Works Great!
