Is this Spring?

Spring is here!

The plan?  Do what you love to do……fly!

Of course, if the weather is not great, you can still work on your aircraft and get it ready for all your spring time needs.

Get your checklist ready

Check your maintenance records – check the history.  What has been done lately, what needs to be done?  Do it now.

The oil – change it!  Oil can become acidic and cause corrosion.  Rust can mix with the oil and cause extensive damage to the engine.

Check the fuel system – any damage or leaks? Water in the drain? Check the fuel gauge for damage.

Check the battery and all the electrical components, radio and antennas.

Tires? Check the tire pressure, tread, hydraulic leaks and struts.

Wing flaps? Tail fins?

Look for structural damage – watch out for birds!


Clean – make sure your aircraft is clean inside and out.  Check the for dirt and foreign objects in wing flaps and tail fin.

Don’t forget the windows!
