Does that mean you can’t run over square anymore too?
Man, you didn’t like ditching that primitive EFIS40 crap for something newer?
The first run Apex was kind of a pain. I was pretty happy with the 530/430 stack in the old one, but I only flew the NG for a handful of hours, it probably would have grown on me with a little more time.

I’d believe that. It’s pretty solid now. I still like a couple things about Chelton better tho.

I like the Chelton, but every update I'm terrified this is going to pop up one day

Apex has synthetic vision now-but without highway in the sky it’s not as useful. It also drives me nuts how the terrain map on the MFD looks the same whether you’re up in the FLs or about to CFIT-the gray/olive/brown terrain on the MFD is a great feature on the Chelton.

Considering it's age, the Chelton really is amazing. But if I'm completely honest ...

If you take it out I know several people who will snap it up.
I've only got 7-9 years before overhaul so I'm just gonna run it until it implodes. If I can get away with a pair of hot sections and run past TBO I might look into avionics, but a lot's probably gonna change between now and then.
