Good evening!
I live in Brazil, I have an Express FT, he broke the nose train and it affected the engine, I'm finishing the review. Someone in the group knows some Express here in Brazil, it would be interesting for me to take a lot of doubts.

This last weekend we moved the plane to my home in Everett, Wa
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.

Slow.... the original project owner made some mods I’m working to either unwind or work around. With it in my garage, not paying for hangar rental is a double edged sword getting work done. Something higher priority always comes up.

Congrats on your purchase! Have you identified your upgrades or are you looking for ideas?

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 and Sun 'n Fun and enjoyed how friendly they were as well as their product features.

We're doing our first condition inspection on it this week so if there are any surprises the avionics may be pushed back a bit :)

Very cool. Positive vibes for a clean condition inspection!
