102 CO Detectors Save Two General Aviation Pilots, Boeing Buys ForeFlight, Light Sport Aircraft + GA News

If you have a question you’d like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

Summary
102 Max talks with two pilots who encountered carbon monoxide in the cockpit just days apart from each other. They’ll tell us how they discovered the CO, what they did about it, and what caused it. One pilot, flying in a Cessna 182RG, purchased a Sensorcon portable CO detector a few months ago and in cruise, measured 40 to 80 ppm of CO, depending upon where he held the sensor. A mechanic found that the C-clamp holding the EGT probe was loose, allowing exhaust gases to leak through the hole the probe is mounted in.

The other pilot, who was flying a C180 Skywagon, had readings of 72 ppm in cruise. That pilot had a backfire at startup, and backfires can damage the exhaust system to the point where they cause a carbon monoxide leak, so you probably want to have your exhaust system checked out if you have a backfire when starting an aircraft. At the destination, a mechanic found that the #1 Exhaust riser had broken at its collar where it bolts to the cylinder, creating an exhaust leak.

88 Four things you should know about Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and Carbon Monoxide Monitors + GA News

If you have a question you’d like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

Four Things to Know about Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
88 Max talks in detail about Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and CO Monitors.
1. Know the symptoms, which include headache, dizziness, upset stomach, vomiting, weakness, confusion, and chest pain. Skin is pink or pale and the lips bright red.
2. Most CO in planes is from a faulty heating system. So shut off the cabin heat, open windows, and land as soon as possible.
3. 43 percent of poisoned patients still have cognitive problems a year after their encounter.
4. Get an electronic CO Detector. This is a perfect Christmas gift for any pilot, so treat yourself to this potentially lifesaving device. We have two recommendations including:
Pocket CO KWJ Carbon Monoxide Detector $163
Sentry ADS-B Receiver with Carbon Monoxide Detector $499

A listener asked how he can get free ADS-B weather in flight without having to pay for an app. The FltPlan Go app for iOS, Android, and Windows is free. It’s compatible with the Garmin GDL 50 Portable ADS-B Receiver. Get these two items, and you should have free ADS-B weather and traffic for the foreseeable future.
