Buy & Sell, Swap & Trade / 182 partnership wanted near Portland/Hillsboro
« Last post by dammfine on August 11, 2017, 11:32:01 PM »
Hello fine flyers,

I'm moving to Portland/Hillsboro area and looking to trade my Grumman Tiger for a 182 partnership. I love the Tiger but my mission is changing to be more long cross country flights over mountainous terrain and my passengers aren't getting any lighter. Is there anyone looking for a partner? I'm hoping to buy in around $30k and am a happy steam gauge/ G430 user. Anyone?

Yeah, it's gonna take a while for this to sink in and become second nature.

Ultimately a better set of numbers (for those who tend to jumble them), easier to keep separate at least verbally.

The KBFI airport diagram shows magnetic headings of the runways are 134.1˚/314.1˚, as of January 2015.  Annual rate of change is 0.1˚ W, meaning the magnetic headings are increasing; i.e., getting closer to true. 

Airnav, though, says both runways are 135˚/315˚ magnetic.

And both the ILS and RNAV final approach courses are published at 130˚ magnetic.

Go figure.

Chit-chat / BFI Runway Number Change

I was just informed that on Thursday the 17th BFI will be changing the runway numbers to 14/32.  That might be challenging for people like me that have been dealing with 13/31 forever,.. but I suppose it will reduce confusion in the long run.

They didn't say if this was due to magnetic changes or if it was to reduce confusion.
