To continue with the saga of N427MC:
our contract administrator called me today informing us, that the part is ready, and our original instructor will be heading to Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ this afternoon. Tomorrow morning Corporate Jets, the Scottsdale Servicce Center will perform the required part installation, and then the instructor together with my partner Andy, will fly back to VNY.
CIRRUS indeed came through for us on this change and very professionally and in a very expeditious manner they are making the plane flyable and “instructable” again! Thank you CIRRUS! Of course I’ll also write a nice note to them directly.
On a sad note, what I was writing all along, that a magnitude of this part, however tiny it may be, effects the original type certificate of CIRRUS. This afternoon I have received, and probably all of you did/will receive a series of new SBs, which effectively grounds the entire fleet, and this is MANDATORY. Except a VFR, DAY no passenger flight to the nearest Service Center, the fleet is grounded. I think the parts will be flying out to the Service Centers, and the fix will be quick, now that Guinnea PIG N427MC is still living after the fix is effected. Best of luck to all of you, and like Woor has always signed off: HAVE A GREAT CIRRUS DAY!
