Pitot Static Check

Post by Roxi5m9 »

Since purchasing my 2004 DA40, I’m coming up on the first pitot static system check to keep the plane IFR certed. The local avionics shop quoted me $570. I know with the G1000 you have to check more systems than a standard six pack plane.

Wondering what some of you out there pay for your 24 month pitot static/altimeter check if you have a DA 40 WITH G1000.

In 2018 I paid $425 + a $45 travel Expense for the biannual IFR Cert for our 2004. It is lined up with the annual.

Local Shop at KCCR will do full IFR ADS-B XPDR/Pitot Static for about 300. Did with my annual at KDWA and it was 600 - yikes!!!!

That’s exactly why I’m asking. The prices vary more than they should.
