This aircraft was purchased and flown to Deer Park a few years ago. Needs annual completed at this time with no damage noted to date. We have removed the interior and started the inspection process. Major items stated so far, are leaking of hydraulic oil in the belly. I expect this to be the main issue to replace old hoses and possibly rebuild actuators, although the pilot claims all worked well during the return flight.
Paint and exterior are about 5-6, some minor hail noted but overall aircraft exterior looks to be in serviceable condition. The heater has been decommissioned, due to failing “Decay Test” several years ago. The interior is complete. Someone has already purchased several new plastic pieces and a carpet kit that needs to be fitted during annual. Seats in great condition.
