Just took delivery of SR-22 G2 in Maui. Can’t finish the training because of some issues and hopefully some of you can come up with some good ideas.
After we removed the ferry tanks, there was air in the fuel line which had to be manually sucked out, then we could start the engine. Engine runs fine. But everytime we go to start the priming is not sending fuel to the engine. We had to purge the gascolator and hit prime to start it up. We are stumped. The factory said it is possible the fuel pump is leaking air into the seal? Maybe, hard to believe.
The PFD went out in training today. All X’s across the board. The ferry pilot said incidication on MFD over the Pacific that the essential bus was putting out 13V. Key word is indiciation, looking at the alternator all were functioning normally. I wonder if this has anything to do with the PFD failing today? Also Cirrus put in a SR-20 PFD vs. and SR-22 PFD data unit. Isn’t that nice.
Pilot door seems to have a leak, seals are nice and clean, but there may be some sort of gap and the air noise gets louder with speed. Is the door tweaked? Is it a poor design? How do we fix this?
Any ideas out there would be great because I am 3,000 miles from any experienced folks…Thanks…Aloha… Laurence
