Just bought a beautiful 140 from Lake Havasu City, AZ (boy it was hot there...). Was looking at 150's but came to my senses just in time. Excited to be part of the group and look forward to meeting other forum members. Will move plane to Kdvt by end of the month. Looking for an A&P who knows these plane in the Phx area. Let me know if anyone has suggestions. Thanks

Welcome to the group! So, it's not hot in Phoenix?

Sorry, can't help with the A&P. I'm here in the muggy Northeast...

If you can get your hands on the latest member's directory, it has a list of all the member A&Ps and their locations.

Mike,

Call Julie White in Eloy. She knows our planes well. Only problem is she's so busy, I don't know if she's taking on any new planes. 520-466-3442, Great person to work with. Very knowlegable and allows owner assisted maintenance and annuals.

Hi Mike,

Welcome to the group! If you'd like I'll be glad to check with our mechanic to see if he is taking on any new customers. He's been working on our 140 for over 25 years now.

By any chance is your new plane painted in red and white TWA colors? If so I know it well.

Hope to see you around DVT soon!

Dean,

That would be great. The plane I bought is polished with red cowl and stripe, not TWA. I am still gaining currency before I move the plane. Had not flown in 5 years but have over 40 past hrs in a 120 but need to beat the rust off my flying first. Hope to have her at DVT by end of month. Will give you a shout when I do.
