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 Oshkos...

Re: Source for 40# foam?

I got some from the glasair folks. They did not have the 1/4 stuff I needed. I think they only had 1/2 - it's been a while. Very nice folks, was able to order online but you can call them. I dont have a number handy but just look them up. If you just need a small qty you might try general plastics ...

Source for 40# foam?

I may need to rebuild the nose wheel and rudder pulley support brace cockpit side of the firewall. It is 40# foam core, I’m having trouble locating the right density foam. Any pointers?
Thanks!

Re: Looking for Builders/Owners of Express 2000 Airplanes

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...

Re: 2000 RG questions

Not sure what direction you went but Composite Aircraft Technology is still in business. Just had a conversation today with someone that works there. It is a small operation, they dont really have an IT/Web development team staffed so the site is outdated. I would give Darrell a call if you're still...

Re: Looking for Builders/Owners of Express 2000 Airplanes

Bought an in-progress project (90% done, 90% to go) from a guy in Colorado about 1.5 years ago, that bought it from a guy in Alabama before he got married and when he got married, his wife was not keen on the project... love over building I guess. It's a Series 90 with Auriga tail, essentially the 2...
