airworthy

Total time: 3030 hours.
Misc: 20.0

Got our special airworthiness certificate! This marks the official end of the build. There is still work to do, but since in the eyes of the state, I have an airplane I can legally fly, I will no longer be tracking my time.

Now just have to sort out a few squawks and we’re ready to fly.

  • Prop Governor issue (was bad cal in tach)
  • replace overhead air servo
  • fuel flow test
  • arm and test ELT
  • clean fouled plugs
  • plug unused nutplate in firewall
  • verify GPS getting to ELT
  • fix fuel leak in tunnel
  • FAA inspection
  • Recheck flap/aileron rigging
  • Adjust oil line to avoid rubbing on air box
  • add some “cushion” to the forward stops in the engine controls.

… Update … Service Bulletin 632 was just released by Lycoming. Looks like our first flight will be delayed for a little bit longer.
