I am grounded, but it is good news. The left prop should be off by now and East Coast Propeller is on the way to take it back up north. It has been throwing grease on one of the blades since its May, 2011 overhaul, and I need that to be right. Right prop is good.

Georgetown Aero Service has been taking great care of my airplane, and they fit me in as soon as I ask. They stand behind what they do, and it seems that East Coast is going to do that as well. Once this gets squared away, I should be good through the annual. I do have a squawk list, but its all for the annual.

Fully retired now, unless something interesting comes along. I’ve enjoyed a lucrative career as an Electrical Engineer, Certified Software Solutions Developer, and Project Manager. An excellent and fun career that I’m very proud of. I began flying commercially in Dash-8 aircraft for Piedmont Airlines, and moved on to instruct in the Gulfstream 280; WestWind; and Astra jet aircraft. I’ve also been blessed with a type rating in the B-25 bomber in a fortunate turn of events. My wife, Beverly, and I currently own and operate a beautifully restored PA30 Twin Comanche, which we use to explore the CONUS.
