  1. Looks like the elevator controls need to be checked. If there is just a little resistance in the controls it will cause the trim Servo to kick in to relieve the tension on the elevator servo. Most of the time this resistance is due to dirty or dry yoke shafts. Moisture in the static line is also a common reason for oscillations. I’d lube the yoke shafts and go try it. Then check for moisture.
  2. Full refunds will be given this next week for the convention. Rooms will be Refunded through the hotel. If there are any problems getting the refunds call our office and talk to me I’ll make sure it gets taken care of. Paul Maxwell 9036439902
  3. Looks like it’s at the splice plate where the inner spar connects to the outer spar. It’s repairable by replacing the spar cap and maybe the doubler. Requires drilling down the bottom wing skins from the belly outward knocking out the huck bolts and drilling out a lot of rivets and detaching everything in the way. We’ve replaced four spar caps in the last year. Although a lot of work at 120-150 hours still cheaper than getting a new wing and transferring it. If you have some questions on it give us a call be happy to give some advice to whoever decides to tackle this.
  4. We repair them for a flat fee of $350.
  5. Surefly is also available for turbocharged engines in the fixed timing mode. The aml covers the engines it has been approved for and the stc tells requirements for advanced timing mode installs. There are dip switches on the timing housing for the various configurations.
  6. Looks like it's only one skin in the picture and dent isn't deep enough to hurt any stringers and was between ribs. That skin is about 1k and takes about 45 hours to replace reseal and paint. Stall switch bracket is probably busted and tab is obviously no good. Probably looking at 5k-7k for repair depending on the stall switch and labor rates much cheaper than a replacement wing.
  7. Amsafe estimates installs will be 4-6 hours. The price $2580 includes both front seat belts with shoulder belts. The sensor has a self test mode and does not need the amsafe test tool for install. The wires are one length only limiting where the sensor can be installed to under the left or right seat. I would suggest installing with nutplates in the floor for easy removal in the future. I asked the rep to join mooneyspace and introduce himself and he said he would. He did say they have a Facebook page and can also answer questions there.
  8. Both GIAS have to be the same. The latest Mooney s/w -34 is only available for WAAS. It is possible to go from -34 to -30 s/w the problem with doing it if needed to be done is the GMU is updated to s/w 2.05 during the -34 update and a GMU loader card has to be used to revert back to s/w version 2.01 for -30 to work. So the Gia 63 nonWAAS does have some value in a worst case scenario.
  9. We have not installed one but the time for install will depend on a two point or three point install and depending on if the current three point mounting bracket can be used. I would guess for two point about 1.5 hours per seat and the three point could be another 30 min if the existing mount is used. One of the sales members gave out the wrong price ($2580 I believe) during Oshkosh and amsafe is sticking with that price as an introductory price and said it will go up in 2019. It also doesn't need the testing equipment so any a&p can install. Here is the install manual. Hope this helps.
