OK, some good news for a change. The fixes and changes are finally completed, and we (Beth) flew tonight. It’s been a long two week outage, and we’re getting ready to depart to Oshkosh on Friday, so it was particularly sweet to see her back in the air. So, how’d it go? Well, sort of a mixed bag, Beth didn’t like the feel of the rudders in flight, like they required too much pressure to deploy. We’ll look into that. Otherwise, things were great. The new nose gear shock absorber seems to be the cat’s meow (thanks Andy and Jorge!), and the factory trim was very stable, and the new toe brakes were great – better control and total braking force. We probably won’t get any more time before Airventure, so we’ll see everybody there!
