Windward Aviation, a general aviation maintenance and repair facility located at Florida’s Palm Beach County Park Airport (LNA), has been selected, again, to host the 13th American Bonanza Society (ABS) Service Clinic, slated for Feb. 17-20.
“We had approximately 30 aircraft reviewed at our clinic last year,” said Jim Leach, co-owner of Windward, “and expect more this year. But many more people attend who don’t actually have aircraft to inspect. It’s become a fun, networking event where we share and learn from each other. Lasting relationships are forged here, and we look forward welcoming back familiar faces along with meeting new ABS members this year.”
For four days, aircraft from across the Southeast will be assessed and examined by ABS, Teledyne Continental and Windward Aviation technicians, which include: Complete airframe checks including landing gear and flight control rigging, corrosion awareness, and other maintenance tips; and thorough engine checks including compression check, borescope and general condition.
Windward Aviation’s staff will be on hand during the clinic and afterward to answer questions, address concerns or clarify issues raised during inspections. The cost of the clinic is $225 for a single engine, and $275 for a Baron twin-engine.
In addition to the inspections, aviation vendors will be on hand to present their latest products and answer questions in person. A partial list of exhibitors includes: Sarasota Avionics, Palm Beach Aircraft Propeller, LNA Pilot Shop, Florida Aero Paint (Paint and Upholstery), Tropic Airpower (Engines and Magnetos), among others. Information will also be available regarding various Beech-specific modifications including Tip Tanks, all D’Shannon and Knots2U mods, Engine Monitors, 406MHz ELT’s, alternators, starters, propellers, speed brakes, strobes, air bag restraints, air conditioning, engine upgrades, aluminum elevators, control yokes, Gamijectors, and sound insulation.
