Piper Geronimo Conversion Safety and Stability

Like This Classic Car, a Meticulously Maintained Piper Geronimo Conversion By Montana Diamond Aire Will Provide Safety and Stability For Years to Come!

Like This Classic Car, a Meticulously Maintained Piper Geronimo Conversion By Montana Diamond Aire Will Provide Safety and Stability For Years to Come!

 

When we overhaul an Apache airframe, we completely strip the aircraft inside and out. All of the tail surfaces are removed including the vertical and horizontal stabilizers. We have STC SA2793SW which is a rudder bracket reinforcement, SA4007SW which is a structural improvement parts kit for the flaps and elevators. The whole aircraft is powerwashed inside and out, all surfaces are inspected. The landing gear gets updated (much-stronger) drag links, the tail system attach areas get a doubler added and all new attachment hardware before the tail components are reinstalled. All hoses are replaced, control surface hinges/bearings…all hydraulic components overhauled, all moving parts in the whole airframe get re-bushed or bearings replaced as applicable….the list gets pretty long. In short, we are very thorough with our airframe overhauls.

Montana Diamond Aire has several Piper Apache airframes available for made-to-order Piper Geronimo Conversions.  Order today and we can have you in the air by early 2010!
