    You can bring her to us if you’d like. If you prefer somewhere else, provide them with a copy of LASAR’s pre purchase inspection checklist. You can find it online. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Just out of curiosity, what is it you’re needing done avionics wise? If it’s something simple like an upgrade or an installation - Lynn may be able to help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  4. 5/8”... do watch the video. Expect a little blood... Our royal highnesses are sometimes hateful but love them anyway [emoji846] Perhaps I should get Lynn and Nathan to do another video talking about metal contaminants [emoji38] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    To Powerflow or not to Powerflow - That is the question

    We do... typically we look at the “hot spots” first and try to keep downtime waiting on parts to a minimum Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Deposit on plugs?

    If you’ve already replaced the plug and the replacement is giving you problems out the gate, make sure the plugs aren’t bad right out of the box. Our shop has seen this quite a bit - more so with Champion plugs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Well then I'd say you're very fortunate. There's no way? Please note the 'in our experience' that preluded the 500hr statement. About half the ones we've changed had burned out flame tubes with large sections missing and the other half was due to cracks. Also, the ones replaced were around 500hrs of use (not life of the plane). Once deterioration starts, it doesn't stop when the engine isn't in use. For what it's worth -in our experience- service life of small Piper muffler cans are less. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    We're based out of KMRN (Morganton, NC). We offer a wide arrange of services, you can visit our website www.aglaviation.com to see a more comprehensive list. Or, you can ask us if you have something specific in mind - Lynn is very honest as to whether he's capable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Another thing, in the giant scheme of things consider this: In our experience, the stock muffler lasts about 500hrs. Parts and labor costs about $1000 to change it. So, in 2000hrs you've spent around $4000 in exhaust maintenance. The PF system costs relatively the same (it'll be a wash financially) BUT... for 2000hrs you get somewhere along the lines of 18more horsepower (more with the airfilter addition).

    Our only benchmark we have for that is a flight school 172 we maintain. The exhaust system has went past the TBO of the engine (2000hrs). It flies roughly 1000hrs a year. We have several new installs (mooneys included), but they're not that old nor fly that much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
