The Maule is back in Missionary Aviation Repair Center‘s hangar for it’s annual inspection. It has gone well which is a by product of taking good care of the bird and doing preventative maintenance along the way. We of have a couple of big ticket items on the horizon though. The engine has an AD (recall in automotive terms) that requires that I replace the crankshaft in 13 months, we are getting estimates now. I also need to replace a servo on the autopilot next year and replace the outdated Emergency Locator Transmitter to the current standard. Keep an eye on the Ongoing Project page for more updates on the Maule’s maintenance.
