Last night the PW5 purchase was completed with Dave Mackenzie.

The annual did not detect problems, the log book will be duly stamped/certified by Paul Lamont today (Sunday)
On Monday Tony Firmin will deal with Transport Canada/transfer of registration, Dave Bax will sort out the insurance.
On Tuesday the aircraft should be ready to fly, after a test flight by Rob McCallum.
If you are qualified solo/current on either Grob or Twin Grob, a ground briefing is all that is required.
Flight per minute cost 0.85 per min. (free if you have Block time A,B or C)

The PW5 got some serious washing and TLC today by some of our Bursary members. A nice addition to our Fleet and should be on line this week! I hear it is a fun ship to fly!

I have a recollection that last time we had the PW5 there was an issue with people pulling the emergency canopy jettison, and it being difficult to re-assemble after. Is the emergency release clearly labelled, do we have instructions for how to reassemble if necessary, and should we make it part of the briefing-on-type to remind people to only pull it when they intend to leave the aircraft by parachute? :D

How does it make sense for the PW5 to cost as much per minute as the LS4? Are we trying to make sure no one flies it?

Don't forget the LS4 is currently under priced.
All glass 0.85 or 1.00
The 2-32 is 0.82
2-33 & 1-34 are 0.62
