Total time: 3030 hours.
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.
