Maintenance Items

Poor quality shot but shows location of work
08Romeo is in the shop tonight getting ready for a few small issues I want to update.  I noticed the co-pilots mic/PTT cable located under the yoke was starting to come apart.  I guess age and heat in the cockpit have taken its toll.  Of course I had to investigate and pick at the thing, yes, about 3 inches of black outer coating from the cable is gone.
Since it's to darn hot to fly I figured I would get the cord replaced and while the shop has it apart replace the PTT switch. A little extra preventative maintenance goes a long way.


Items replaced.  Everything is working fine and the new PTT switch has a better feel then my pilot side, I may have to update my side too.
