Small instructor numbers limits flying opportunities -
In the interim, will apply small numbers in best way we can.
There have been no operations, as since engine repair the observed CHT are high, with likely short term damage.
Many cooling improvements have been made, with no improvement achieved. Engine agent has flown FFQ and confirms unacceptable temps. Manufacturer and agent say engine performance is ok, and cooling is airframe issue.
The meeting considered:
Agent also provided a WA contact who may have objective temp data on another Limbach/G109. As many G109 temp records are anecdotal – where 170deg limit is not known, where gauge may be unreliable, etc. and hence comparative situation is not useable.
The aircraft issue for the club to be further pursued by accumulating funds – in line with change in club fees – to build a surplus toward aircraft purchase.
