Interesting thread on TBMOPA concerning P&W requirements regarding engine operation and idle periods. Essentially what I took away was the engine should be run every week and certainly every 30 days with a mini overhaul requirement after 60 days.

Any port in a storm and any excuse to fly in a pandemic! I’m going tomorrow.


I flew my TBM this morning and did a couple of approaches and holds. Luckily, it was all in the clouds so great practice. I was able to park my car on the flight line just as they were finishing fueling the plane. I used disinfectant wipes to clean all the handles on the plane that I would touch - even though the line crew more than likely didn't come near them. Using rubber gloves I preflighted the plane, removing all covers. When back on the ground I used new gloves as I exited the plane and put everything back on.

It was great to fly today and I'm going to schedule practice flights each week to keep me and the plane in good shape.

can you help me with a source document? Cannot find in the POH. Where do I get the P&W Maint Manual?

The only reference I have seen is in the Safety Seminar presentation by Daher in Pompano. I wasn't there but it is online at the TBMOPA site.

Maybe look around for PT-6 Preservation procedures.

Great photos! You are making me miss that amazing airplane.

I was fortunate to rack up 199.2, before the owners traded it on an M2. (I love that one, too.)

Lovely. Thanks for the ride

We flew KPWA-KABQ-KWVI yesterday, Oklahoma City to Watsonville, CA in 4:52 flying time. The cabin was pretty full with a month's worth of groceries, our computer and work systems, luggage, etc. Basically we took all a small/medium sized SUV can carry. It was a nice trip and easy to manage with complete physical distancing.

I had the plane pulled and fueled at our hangar with the doors left open so we could park inside. We loaded the plane taxied and took off on a very quiet trip. There were the usual check ins with center but very few other planes on the frequency.

We usually stop at ABQ for fuel. Typically, as yesterday, we landed on Rwy 3, taxied to Cutter and then departed on Rwy 8. As efficient as it can be. We had sent a fuel release ahead of us and called Cutter on Unicom. They fueled us without ever opening the doors and we were off again.

Normally, on the way to Watsonville I get several reroutes for military airspace. Not this time though I was requested to fly at 310 for about 15 minutes once. With ceilings of about 1500 Watsonville was pretty busy, even for a Saturday, with light planes doing pattern work on Rwy 20. The only precision approach is an RNAV for Rwy 2 so I usually take that and cancel before the pattern and land Rwy 20 which is what I did yesterday.

We keep a car at the airport so we were able to load and head out to Santa Cruz with no issues. Safely ensconced there we never had contact with another person from home to home. We have two sons in LA who have both been maintaining a thorough physical distancing protocol for a month so I plan to pick them up next week for a few days together. I think we can swing the same kind of protocol with the FBO at KVNY.

It's a true blessing to own and fly your own airplane, especially at times like this!

Tony,

ABQ is always a good fuel stop. You mentioned you sent a fuel release to Cutter. Just curious, but why not just use C.A.A.? Cheap price, no release needed.

Just finished this whole thread! Great info!

Can you guys explain this for us Jet-A newbies. I’m shopping for an 850 to be purchased in next 12 months.

By the way Jordan - Welcome to Beechtalk! It's a great place for a Cirrus pilot transitioning to a TBM!

Pay for a CAA membership, and subscribe to all the other ones you can find. There are about 6 or so (AV Fuel, World Fuel, CAA, Shell, and more I’m not remembering). Get a JetFuel-X account, (which tells you which program is cheaper at a given FBO) and use it in FF To help you determine the contract fuel price, which is usually substantially lower than retail (usually, but not always).

Depending on how much fuel you’ll need, it can save hundreds of dollars. Sometimes it’s just better to pay the ramp fee and move on. I’m finding this true now that our field based fuel is < $2/gal.

Awesome. I’ll definitely have to do that. Thanks!

Hahaha funny right. Obviously I’ve been a lurker for a while (2015). Always good to get tid bits of aviation knowledge from all the groups! When you drive different aircraft you get different perspectives that help the decision making process!
