N411VV 520-39 is back in the air...
« on: August 25, 2017, 07:53:58 am »
One year after "Winning" N411VV at an estate auction, it's in the air and doing exactly what I'd hoped it would do.

Thanks for the advice from you guys and especially Morris for helping me piece together two props. I think we had to go as far a Neptune to find some links. I pressed my family into service to get it ready in time for Oshkosh.

At this point I dream in Commander-eze.

Can we camp at (or inside) the airplane?

Call the airport up there and ask.  Not sure of facilities for taking shower or anything though.

Good stuff! So nice to see another 520 getting back in the air! I loved mine - great little STOL plane and very forgiving. I could trash that thing around like a 172! Hope to see it at the fly-in!
Slumming it in the turboprop world - so you don't have to.
