With our aircraft, N207BH, having passed the AIRWORTHINESS inspection (a VERY important detail for an flying machine!), we're eager to get on our way to operations back in Gabon, but there are roadblocks...
ROADBLOCK #1: Clearing Customs
|Also, while we waited on Customs, Erica, one of the Kenyan |
technicians with AIM AIR, helped to repair an issue with
our co-pilot door.
|The avionics upgrade swaps out some items and makes|
other items unnecessary. In the picture are some of the
items we pulled out... the airplane lost 9 pounds!
|Our Avionics PRO, Joe, went to GREAT lengths to |
get install our new technology (Garmin G5's)!!!
So, before we can fly the airplane, we have to get
permits for local flights to test the airplane, then permits
for the flight to Gabon.
|The panel was reconstructed with the new, fancy, Garmin|
gadgets, and it was coming to life thanks to JOE!
While this was happening, other AIM AIR friends were working
with civil aviation to work out our flight permits.
|After the installation, Joe did calibration and testing|
to make sure all was in order.
Please consider partnering with us in this important work to SHOW and TELL about God's Love. If you would like to specifically assist with one of the above needs, please let me know with an email to "Gabon.Pilot@gmail" and follow the giving instructions below. Merci Beaucoup!
