It has been over a week now since I posted this notice about the wing ribs for the Sedan. Aside from Tom and Eric posting here I have not heard from anyone else. Not an email, not a phone call; nothing! I'll be the devil's uncle if I can figure out how this post got turned into a thread about the Se...

FINALLY!!! New Wing Ribs for the Sedan

At long last is appears that I have found a company that can make all the necessary rib dies at a price that is reasonable even in these times. What I am looking for here is which ribs should be made first? My take on it is the nose ribs, intermediate ribs, the L/R nose and intermediate butt ribs. J...

Not a bad idea, Matt but I'm still sitting on 40 fuel valves that owners couldn't wait for me to get approved. Need money to spend money. Not a "bail-out", just simple economics. Also have lots of new parts on the shelf that were multiples of the parts for the new fuselage. Probably the same parts t...

STC

I am glad to see someone actually research getting an STC. Good for you! Now with that bit of knowledge it isn't hard to see why that new little "Do-Dad" costs so much is it. We have approximately 25 STCs, 19 supplements to our PMA plus 6 Engineering Design Approvals. We just acquired another STC an...

I do. In fact I have all 37 pages. (the 37th page is the lubrication schedule and spec sheet) They come in a nice comb binding with heavy clear plastic top cover and heavy card stock back cover. If you want the whole thing it is $30.00, if you just need one page, well, call the factory and see what ...

Joe,

Perhaps I can send the pics on CD rather than DVD if you thing that will help. Let me know via my regular email. I will have to use 2 CDs though because one will not hold all the data.

We should have valve kits available in 4-6 weeks due to manufacturing lead time required. The new valve kit comes with 1 e...
