The 210 Annual Inspection Continues

While Josh was back in Hangar C installing the propeller on GCI's 172, Ian, Gertjan, Andy, and Paul continued their work on the 210 up in Hangar A.

Paul prepares the 210's rear window to be resealed.

Ian inspects the 210's left wing.

Andy inspects the engine.

Annual inspections like this provide a tremendous opportunity for the apprentices to become familiar with aircraft systems as well as specific aircraft makes and models. It's a different type of experience than the heavy restoration going on with the 206's and the 182, but just as important for the balanced understanding necessary to serve as a mechanic in a remote field setting.
