Oshkosh 2019

Any Express owners heading up to Oshkosh this year? I'd like to meet you if so.

Thanks,
Phil

Re: Pre-buy inspection

Hey Vitalij, welcome to the forums! We have only had our Express for about a year so there are others here with much more experience than me so hopefully they will comment here, too. Erik's already given some good info above but one other thing I've heard a lot about checking out are the landing gea...

Re: Composite Aircraft Technology strong and healthy!

That's great to hear about them. I'd called Darrell earlier this year about my gear fairings and he shared where I could and could not drill into the wing for attaching them. Looks like nice work they're doing on that Express in the pic!

Re: Dimensions of the Nose Gear Support?

Oh, good. I have some measurements from when I was in the hangar yesterday and hadn’t posted those with pics yet, but Darrell’s will be much more exact than mine :D

Re: Dimensions of the Nose Gear Support?

I've attached the part of the manual I have for the nose gear support. There are a few measurements in SB056 that are in there, if that's of any help. Some of that part is going to be buried under my dash but if you'll help describe what dimensions you need, if I can get to it, I'll attempt to measu...

Re: Looking for Builders/Owners of Express 2000 Airplanes

Thanks! We're looking at the GRT line for avionics. For ADS-B, the Safe-fly GPS/echoUAT combo since we don't need a new transponder. For the panel, the Horizon 10.1 touchscreen EFIS with one of the Mini series with internal battery as a backup. I spent time talking with the GRT folks at both Oshkosh...

282ex, how's your build going? We bought a flying Series 90 last year, but I'm curious to hear from folks that are building now. Ours was built in 1997 so we're looking at ADS-B and other avionics upgrade projects now.

Upper gear fairing attachment

Hey there, I’ve got a Series 90 with aluminum gear and I’m curious to hear how others have attached their upper gear fairings? Mine has those fairings held up with springs attached to the inside of the wing and inside of the fairing and that’s not working well. I’m trying to see where else to fasten...
