In the beginning I think the STC was a way to remove some of the mechanical items that could at some point need maintenance. And Don is correct as several owner/operators have reported nacelle cracking due to airflow that was not there when the clam shells were there.

I have kept them and see no benefit to removing them.

Our 681 came without the Clam shell doors, and we flew it for a few years without them.  Rear passengers who have very good hearing, can hear some air burbling in flight back there. And installing the clam doors back onto the machine, creates a much nicer even sound in the rear cabin i was told, plus i saw about an increase of the TAS of 3 to 5 knots.

She can solo a glider at 14 which, as you know, will come before you know it!

Very blessed.  She loved it, thanks guys.  Time surely does fly (pun intended).

Nice to have some paint on the inside of the winglet! My old paint job was just white, but I prefer this...
