TNC will be departing in the next couple of weeks to have new Garman GTX200 radio installed (to bring into line with BCK). It will then be heading to Nelson for approximately 3 months for its fabric and airframe overhaul. This is a significant investment from the club at around $30,000 to $40,000. The club is also currently planning for an anticipated engine overhaul or replacement for TNC.
Following some recent work to replace 3 induction gaskets, install 2 longreach sparkplugs, and an adjustment to resolve an issue with the engine running at low revs, BCK is now performing very well.
