We followed the instructions once again, but no luck matching what the instructions are telling us we should see. It was time to stray into the 'lets experiment' mode. For this round instead of selecting the Lynx we selected a generic search. All of a sudden we had a IP # and everything seemed to fall into place. There was only one way to truly test the system...FLY IT!
Mary and I cancelled the beach day siunce she was doing wash so I made sure she wanted to pass on sun and sand. With another confirmation she told me go fly...she knows me so well.
Chet and I saddled up for Cambridge, Maryland - KCGE. We figured on a testing flight and lunch stop, a perfect combo. Upon departure from Ocean City the IFly came to life with weather info and traffic, plenty of traffic. There has to be a way to hide the distant traffic.
Chet did all the flying, I did all the button pushing. We had audio alerts for traffic and the units were working together as one, seamlessly. There was one plane that departed CGE and we had the field to ourselves as Chet maneuvered us to land. We were the only aircraft on the ramp.
Kay's was busy but we walked in and were quickly seated. Chet had a burger and I had a BLT, both very good. We chatted about planes and ADSB while ate lunch. With full bellies we boarded 888 Bravo Whiskey and pointed for home.
