Last week they called me to schedule the repair. We scheduled and agreed Monday at 9:30AM. That was a take off in Chino at 09:00AM and should really get here in 15 minutes. Because it is so early in the morning, I figure no point to go to work for a few minutes just to come back. So, I will wait… and fiddle with the locks until they arrive.
But then, just before 09:00AM I get a phone call. Oh no…. …
I finally bit the bullet and purchased some upgrades of the old girl. New audio Panel and transporter that includes the ads-b transponder.
I had heard good things about advantage avionics over in chino California. Well… it nearly all went wrong. The number one thing they failed at was communications. They would say one things, then another, it was hard to get answers sometime. I liked the surprise call one friday saying are you getting your plane today? What? I didn’t know they were done. Here is a short video detailing some issues with the service.
