Crownair Unveils Glass Cockpit-Equipped T210 During AOPA Expo 2008 It's getting harder and harder to come up with the scratch for a new airplane these days... especially for those of us hankering for new airplane capabilities like glass panels and other high-tech accoutrements. Then again; there's the retrofit game... and at AOPA Expo 2008, it was in full swing. One of the more significant announcements to come from the expo didn't come from aerospace giants Cessna or Cirrus... but from the comparatively diminutive Crownair Companies, a new aviation maintenance and avionics provider in the Southwest United States. The company displayed its first Crownair "Centurion Edition" Cessna T210 during the upcoming show in San Jose, CA, November 6 through 8. The package is aimed at breathing new life into the popular, though aging, fleet of Cessna 210s. From spinner to tail cone, the upgraded 1977 aircraft features all new and state-of-the-art amenities including a glass cockpit with Electronic Flight Instrument System, new classic blue paint scheme, RAM engine, tinted glass, wingtips with recognition lights, Super Quiet cabin soundproofing and gray leather seats with sheepskin inserts. The Crownair "Centurion Edition" T210 will compete with new manufactured aircraft by offering more payload, faster speeds and more range. The Centurion was in production from 1957 to 1985 and approximately 9,240 were manufactured. "Centurion owners and pilots own a piece of history, but that doesn’t mean the plane shouldn’t have modern technology and comforts. The Crownair "Centurion Edition" is the first all glass cockpit in a Centurion T210 in the world," says Grant Murray, owner of Crownair. "We understand the dedicated owners and enthusiasts who fly Centurions, and our goal is to make their flying experience first class." Crownair was formed this year in San Diego, CA. Production on the Crownair "Centurion Edition" T210 will be done on an as-ordered basis and takes approximately two to three months. Check Out The Crownair T210 Centurion Edition With Aero-TV!

Aero-Maintenance Expert Provides New Management Services For Busy A/C Owners Every now and then, someone has a "DOH!" moment... you know, a startlingly good idea that just somehow makes all the sense in the world. Mike Busch has had one, in no uncertain terms, and hundreds of aircraft owners are now eager to reap the benefits of his brainstorm. Savvy Aircraft Maintenance Management, Inc. (SAMM) is basically this -- an "in-house" maintenance expert that will be available on an annual basis for private aircraft owners... to oversee all maintenance related matters and offer their expertise, on-call, to make sure that an aircraft owner's dollars are being used only for what they are intended -- to keep their aircraft flying safely and predictably. While he is backed up by an expert staff of maintenance pros, this is Mike Busch's baby... Mike Busch A&P/IA (CEO) is a renowned aviation writer, teacher, aviation type club tech rep, aircraft owner advocate, and entrepreneur. For nearly 20 years, Mike has been assisting aircraft owners with their maintenance problems through his work with the Cessna Pilots Association, the American Bonanza Society, and the Cirrus Owners & Pilots Association. Mike was also the FAA's “National Aviation Maintenance Technician of the Year” honoree for 2008. In other words, Mike is the real deal. His brainchild is 'dedicated to providing professional maintenance management for owner-flown aircraft.' Services offered include: Assist you in selecting the best service center and/or maintenance technician for the job. Arrange for your aircraft to be ferried to and from the maintenance location (if necessary). Establish a three-phase protocol (inspection-approval-repair) for each maintenance transaction to ensure that you stay in control of the process, have the opportunity to review and approve all maintenance decisions, remain "in the loop" throughout the process, and have no surprises when the invoice arrives. Give specific written direction to the service centers and maintenance technicians doing the work. Use the proven methodology of reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) to achieve the required levels of safety and dispatch reliability and the lowest possible cost. Employ condition-directed maintenance (CDM) wherever feasible, rather than time-directed maintenance (TDM). Implement a state-of-the-art condition-monitoring program, including regular borescope inspections, spectrographic oil analysis, and digital engine monitor data analysis. Minimize expenditures for replacement parts by evaluating lower-cost alternatives (e.g., repairs, PMA equivalents, salvage yards, discounts). Minimize unnecessary expense by ensuring that systematic troubleshooting is performed before authorization is given to perform repairs or replace parts. The whole package is done for one flat fee, priced according to aircraft complexity, and starts at only $500 for a plain-vanilla Fixed Gear Single and working its way up from there. Early reports are very positive, especially among a number of Technologically Advanced Aircraft owners... and it appears that Mike has a hit on his hands.
