New Radios for the Airplane

Finally got the Mooney back on Wednesday after 4 weeks in the avionics shop. We're really pleased with the results.

Here's the veritable "before" shot. Most of these radios were original equipment and many of them didn't work. We knew this when we bought the airplane and planned to immediately install new radios.

So, out with the old......what a tangled mess! You can see why this is not a job for the faint of heart (and you can also see why this is not a do-it-yourself project!!)

Here's the expert - Jerry Jeffers from Air Associates at the Asheboro Airport (gotta give him a plug!) This is the actual radio stack that he eventually installed in the gaping hole above.

All done! Very nice, modern electronics. (One instrument is missing because it was not functioning correctly and went back to the manufacturer for repair/replacement). Now for some good flying weather!!!

That is amazing - both all the wires and that the stack of new radios fit in that space...
