Nice! You are too kind.

I was actually up flying today in a Maule, teaching FAA commercial flight maneuvers, weirdly.

He mentioned his VOR stopped working. While he preflighted I looked at under the dash and saw the VHF/UHF splitter and removed and replaced the coax BNC connectors to scrub the contacts. Sure enough when we got airborne the San Jose VOR and LOC were as clear as a bell on the 430. Told him to get some electrical contact cleaner

It’s always the connections, it seems.

PS Chandelles are ok, but wingovers sure are fun.
