Another week’s vacation spent working on the plane. We got lots of little things done, and I think we’ve officially reached the mythical “80% done, 80% to go stage”. The completed exhaust has been installed, and the fuel servo was mounted and ducted along with the oil cooler. The last of the engine (EGT, fuel and oil pressure) instruments have been wired to the EFIS, and the power distribution wiring is complete (with the exception of the radios we don’t have yet). There are a variety of projects to be completed before flying, buying and installing the radios, installing the parking brake and pressurizing the brake system, create the exhaust augmentors in the cowling, install the autopilot servos, but the end is in sight, and we’re going to officially register 44VF with the FAA as an airplane this week.
