Kent created a new topic ' Feb, One question survey- What do you like best about your Piper Flyer Assoc. A' in the forum. 7 hours 47 minutes ago

A few answers from our February One Question Survey --
Articles regarding new products
The magazine which highlights the important information about our "type" aircraft. And the web site too.
All the knowledge I gain from reading the magazine.
I'm a new owner (3 years) of a Warrior and each month I learn a little more about my aircraft and what needs to be fixed or upgraded. AND...I love the monthly laughs I get from reading Kevin Garrison's articles.
As a new pilot and hope to be plane owner, the association does an excellent job of providing general information related to cessnas
Steve Ells
The step by step technical projects articles. The text book instruction articles regarding flying.
Opportunities for social interaction with fellow Cessna owners.
Availability of info on the Cessna that I rent.
The magazine - especially Kevin Garrison's column!
Practical discussion of chronic Cessna aircraft issues.
Being part of a like-minded community with the same (aging aircraft) interests.
Access to information pertaining to vintage Cessna 172's. The links, web addresses, informative articles, and AD awareness. Great job done by the staff! Love the magazine!
Everything. Especially Jen. She is the best. Kent is pretty clueless, but what would you want from a Canadian.

Hi John,
That's good news.
I'm glad you asked the question--I hadn't heard to Precision before I started searching.

FWIW, When I talked to Kim he told me that the parts would not be painted when they were returned.

Hi Thanks for the pointer.
I spoke with Kim there and he said that they can do the work.
Since we might be the first Aztec part he has repaired it would take a bit longer as they would ship the part to an engineering lab to test the materials and then he would have to do some FAA paperwork to get the part number added to their approved list. Once that was done then they could do the work and ship back a yellow tagged repaired part. As the first guy it would be about a month start to stop for the engineering, faa, and repair work.
The next person would have a much shorter period of time....
Kim seemed knowledgeable and the pricing was reasonable (in aircraft monetary units).

Trunnion would be around $1200. The collar would be around $350
These are March 2021 ESTIMATES...
