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 interior and started inspection process. Major items noted so far are leaking of hydraulic oil in belly. I expect this to be main issue to replace old hoses and possibly rebuild actuators, although pilot stated all worked well during return flight.
Paint and exterior are about 5-6, some minor hail noted but overall aircraft exterior looks to be in serviceable condition. Heater has been decommissioned due to failing “Decay Test” several years ago. Interior is complete and someone has already purchased many new plastic pieces and carpet kit that need to be fitted during annual. Seats in great condition.
