At shutdown today, N84MR had 75.7 hours on the hour meter. In just over a week from now, it will go into my local friendly Authorized Cirrus Service Center for it’s first visit.
Here’s my punch-list:
-Oil change #2 (no more straight mineral). First oil change was at 33 hours (est. 30 hours tach time).
[The shop is recommending that I use AVBLEND. Does anyone have any experience/comments on this?]
-Pilot seat reluctant to lock into position.
-Adjust HSI flux gate for better correspondence between HSI and compass.
-Modify transponder antenna ground plane.
-Check roll servo - possible wiring fault. Working OK now, but first STEC 55 died, and STEC suspects that the roll servo may have caused its demise.
-Fix small area on cowling where the paint did not “take” properly.
-A couple of other simple cosmetic items.
I’m thinking of asking them to do a “mini-100-hour inspection”. It will co$t, but then this is still a new airplane, and I’m not sure what might be lurking. Any thoughts?
