Closing-out 2011

With the Gabon 207 headed to Africa and the Asas 206 safely in Brazil, with two new long-term aircraft projects already arrived, an annual inspection underway, and GCI's 310 back in the hangar, the 402 project continues to inch toward completion.

And as I type this, Andy Porter, our latest apprentice to complete the program, is undergoing his FAA Oral & Practical Exam to receive his Airframe & Powerplant mechanic's certificate.

Here's a video clip of the 402's post-inspection engine runs:

Lord willing, we'll have it up in the air early next year.

Asas 206
Here's the Asas 206 landing on the Amazon River in Manaus.

Here's the airplane in its hangar.

Hangar A
We have three airplanes up front.

GCI's Cessna 310 is in the foreground. It's in for an avionics cooling fan to be installed. The QRCBC SR-22, centered in the photo, is opened up for annual inspection under Chuck and Geoff's care, and Amazon Salt & Light's Cessna 185 is in the background.

Hangar B
Mark works on the heating system on Wings With the Word's Cessna 402.
