Aircraft Work- Upgrades Update!

Our friend, Ben Wigton, is giving freely of his time and expertise to give a facelift to our Cessna 207!  Some instrument dials are getting swapped out for modern screens!  Here are some pics:

The work is taking place at the SIL-Cameroon hangar, where we do most of our aircraft maintenance.  Great partners!

The man, the myth, the legend- Mister Ben Wigton, with a table full of wires and connectors to make it all work!

To put in the "NEW"... first, it's "Out with the OLD!"  A pile of wire and tubes we won't be needing anymore.

Here's the panel and circuit breaker panel (lower left of picture) all pulled apart to make room for the "NEW"...

And HERE is the "NEW"!  Two Garmin G5 units- one to be used as the
Artificial Horizon and the second to be used as the Horizontal Situation
Indicator (HSI).  There will be a lot of other great info displayed on both
screens, and they'll both be linked to our Garmin 430 GPS.  This is a big
step forward and will help with more precise and safe flying for our
important work in and around Gabon.

More of us are on our way to do Even More work on this aircraft.  CLICK HERE to read more about the details!
