The first thing that arrived in the shop were all the boxes of Dynon equipment! In the bags are about 1,200 feet of wire, two shiny 10″ screens, and all the supporting avionics boxes that go with it.
We’ve also gotten our GTN650, SL-30 radio, crew seats, throttle quadrant, fuel probes, standby instruments, airplane lights, ELT, pitot tube, keys, and lots of other things. After we got all of the goodies we started putting them in the cabin mockup or in the electrical systems test bench.
Needless to say we’ve been having a great time making sure everything works! We’ve also been working hard in the cabin mockup going over all the procedures for the aircraft and making sure that they will work with the airplane’s architecture.
As we prepare the different systems we will substitute the papers for the real thing. As one small hint of what we are doing now, it involves lots and lots of wires connecting lots of expensive boxes together. Let’s see how it turns out in a couple of weeks!
