Annual Inspection Time
44D is in the shop for its annual inspection for 2009. So far so good. Just need to replace the engine mounts and a little carb tuning. The fuel pressure guage needs some refurbishment, but that is a lot of labor to get to. The needle moves but the face behind it is gone. There was a wasp nest in the tail, but no wasps. That would have been fun if they had come forward on some flight. Otherwise 44D is sound and ready for another year of Young Eagle flights.
