Change of subject.... I am looking at installing BAS inertial reel belts in the 180. I can't find any install instructions online to see what will be required...nutplates etc. Can anyone point me to a copy of them?. Appreciate the help.

I had them installed in my 180 last annual. I'll ask the mechanic what directions he used.

When I purchased a few years ago I called them. Gentleman I spoke to was very helpful. Great product.

Everything you need will be in the kit. They don’t publish the instructions. They are provided in the kit. Just go ahead and order the kit. You won’t be dissatisfied. There’s nothing tricky in the 180 install.

Thanks for the info. Am I correct in thinking the bracket screws in to an existing plate on the spar, and then 2 rivets through skin replaced with bolts? Do all 180s have the spar plate?

Usually an existing nut plate is used in the spar carry through. If need be, there is a procedure detailed in the installation manual for additional holes. There are holes drilled in the roof skin for screws. The owner of BAS is quite accessible to help you with any issues. Almost always gets right back to you, unless in the air flying at work. Checks messages frequently.-My experience 2cent.

You won’t see a Cirrus pilot do this kind of thing! SkyWagon’s rule!

Perfect for your upcoming amphibious assault.

A friend caught three hours in this yesterday with his friend. Water and paved landings to knock the rust off plane and pilots. Was hot and he was pooped afterwards. First time in a long while he took flight.... Wish this 185 was mine!!

Has anyone flown a Skywagon with McCall Mountain? I need to get away and training seems like a better excuse than most. But for what they cost, you should expect a bona fide expert in the type as well as the area.

Call and ask. Just like any other flight training business, instructors come and go. I’d think they would have someone for you just because skywagons are so plentiful and common up there. I agree with you though, it would be nice to get your money’s worth by hooking up with a type specialist as well. They are spendy but I do believe they spend some time wringing out the numbers on your particular airplane.
I’ll poke around a bit as well. We are pretty good friends with Amy Hoover who is published in the subject. She recently got a new seaplane and practices docking at our marina. I’ll text her and ask who she would use in your situation.
And between about 5 BT folks, you would not be lacking for free meals.

Thanks, Mike.

About timing: is late September too late to be reliable up there?
