Any updates, Adam? Going to get her out of there before the runway opens?

Just finished all the fuel bladders/drains/leaks, now moving on to pressurization. I doubt she'll be out of there before the end of the year with the pace I can afford. Byt slowly making progress.

Need a new medical, some currency and a BFR at this point too. I really dread climbing into an old C172 to do it, but it will have to be done.

Slumming it in the turboprop world - so you don't have to.

If you want a BFR in the 680, let me know. I'm a CFI.

Thanks Don - that's great to know! Not sure of the legalities of doing a training flight when on a ferry permit (no interior), but technically I can't see why it wouldn't be allowed. But I think I'll just have to climb into that old 172 beforehand..... ::)
