Need a broker to sell my DA40

Moving to Denver and I need to sell my 2005 DA40. Can’t find a hangar at KAPA or KBJC but I need a faster TC airplane anyway. Anyone know a good broker I can use? Airplane is in SW Michigan.

Re: top overhaul

Biggest danger comes from poor maintenance procedure during the new cylinder install. Bolts need to be pre-torqued using the appropriate tools to ensure good long-term seating of the cylinder base. Many maintenance shops will not attempt this but rather send the engine off to an engine overhaul faci...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

I have continued to follow this thread and may have missed it somewhere but a question might be asked of Garmin - “Are you willing to release all design documentation and cert data on the GIA63W so that a 3rd party avionics manufacturer could design a replacement box from those docs?”.

Re: Air in the tire without removing fairing

I use something similar to what Keith M uses but I have a small compressor. I fashioned the same kind of tool to pull the valve out a little.

Powertow adapter for DA40

I’m looking at buying a used PowerTow to get my airplane back in the hangar. Is there a specific adapter for using a Powertow with the DA40 or is it the same as some other aircraft type? And does anyone know what they cost from Powertow?

I have the controller with me in the front of the airplane and use the towbar to steer the nosewheel. So far no problems with the t...
