Global made a presentation at last year’s fly-in in FL. They hired a market specialist to actively search for a buyer. Their plan was to keep all of the assets (TC, fixtures, parts, M400, and 2918T) together as a package sale. If they were not able to sell the entire package, Nin George said they would contact our Association prior to d…[Read more]
I’m not familiar with a noise certificate being issued for the M200, but Marv Rogge had to complete noise testing when he installed the IO-550 with a 2 bladed prop on his aircraft. He or Steve Bauman may be able to answer if a “stock” certificate exists.
Try entering the pattern, or doing closed patterns by reducing power to 15” MP once you’ve reached your downwind altitude (should be ~120 mph), then at midfield put the gear down, which should slow you to about 100 mph, then add 20 flaps abeam your touchdown point and reduce power to just above idle. This may get you the parameters I men…[Read more]
I typically fly a little slower than most, but 100 mph on DW, 90 mph on base, and crossing the fence (just short of threshold at 85 mph works fine for me. I carry a little bit of power into the flare, and roll it off as the nose comes up. You don’t want to try to flare at 80 mph without any throttle, as it will sink through to a c…[Read more]
I do have the part numbers and quantities required and multiple extra seals since I was sent a duplicate order. However, I am currently on an extended work trip and do not have access to my data or parts at this time. If you are able to wait until mid-March, I will send you a complete set of seals (or just the part numbers) at no cost.…[Read more]
It’s time to replace all of the O-rings/seals in all five of my hydraulic actuators. Unfortunately, my Parts Manual and CD are not readily available. Does anyone know the type and quantity of the seals for each of the actuators, and also the thread size for the fittings as I want to get plugs to seal the lines while the cylinders are removed.…[Read more]
The airplane can be very tight for someone who is 6-8. My 6-9 friend can’t fit in either seat, but he has long legs that won’t fit under the dash or around the controls. Also, the gear handle is very close to my right knee (I’m 6-0) and may be an issue if you have long legs. I’ve heard there are those who modified the seat rail mounts…[Read more]
