Are you seeing the pitch up on the 1000, because of the higher Vmo than the 690/840/980?

You might check with S-Tec-- that could be an installation issue. There are a number of parameters which are set in the installation process.

Regarding turbulence, I should add that I generally prefer to hand fly in moderate or greater turbulence. I'm just more comfortable letting the airplane float a bit rather than strictly trying to hold altitude and heading.

Its software. Weve installed more of these than I think all others combined at this point.

NTSB prelim is out. Nothing particularly new, other than it says that he was returning after completion of "recurrent" training, which seems a bit questionable? In any event, probably his first solo in the airplane.
