Default CO Levels Experience

Anyone care to share RV12 detections/indications per flight phase.

Would you hear the alarm buzzer on this unit if you were wearing an active noise reduction headset. You may or may not see the alarm light depending on where it is mounted. Generally RV pilots don?t tend to have too much panel real estate ahead of them.

The answer is yes. I have it mounted on the right side of the panel. It is not only loud, it has a flashing light and read out. Works fine. We discovered my buddy?s Cessna 150 had an exhaust leak.

Default Aithre

Would you happen to know if the Aithre will connect with ANY of the Advanced Flight System EFIS, or just the newer ones..? My AFS is a little older (3400 series, one standard screen and one synthetic vision screen)....just wondered if the older software supports this...thanks in advance.

Brian - I do not know. Best to check with them. They did respond very quickly and were super helpful when I had questions.

Default webinar on CO

I've got this one as well in my RV8. I tested to make sure it works with candles, car exhaust, and it trigged once that I can recall when I was waiting to line up with wind at my back. It seems to work well. Normally it shows 0, which is what I want. I power it on for the calibration step after moving the aircraft out of the hanger with the canopy open and of course engine off.

I just saw an EAA webinar (https://eaa.org/Videos/Webinars#) with faast credit about CO and it was scary - both the story the presenter told, and the fact that he says his CO detector "only" runs at a constant 20 now after repairing his exhaust system. If mine showed anything above zero during normal operations I'd be looking for leaks.

Perhaps I'm being a bit too persnickety, but CO has caused many pilots to have a very bad day.
