Im pretty sure I have the right person here, but I have an option to buy a J2 here in New Zealand which I understand once belonged to you, and you sold it to Rob Saunders?
The aircraft has been advertised on again / off again for a long time now, and it has always caught my imagination.
I have posted a request in the general section of the forum seeking opinions from those experienced with the J2, as to whether it would be practical for an owner to perform their own maintenance on one, since our local law permits such? Can I ask what your thoughts are on this? My main concern is with the rotor head and controls; are there many inspections or maintenance required that you would consider beyond the scope of an owner who had a reasonable ability when it comes to things mechanical? I don’t have any official mechanical or engineering qualification or background.
Obviously, it’s been a while, and the J2 now has 660hrs on it, but what is your recollection of that particular machine, and J2’s in general?
Thanks in advance
