Pegase back in the air

This contribution to the Fly Paper is from Marta's blog. Thanks for your contribution Marta, even if I just copied it across from your blog to the club's.
Finally ... we got one more bird in the air today. After few weeks in the workshop Pegase was fit enough to hit the air. Selwyn did the complete rewiring and installed the new radio as well as CAI 303. The instrument panel isn't beautiful as yet and there are still some cosmetics to be done but at least it's serviceable. I completed the Form 2 inspection together with the corresponding paperwork and declared the aircraft airworthy - how cool does that sound, huh?
The 302 still has the turn point database from Poland. As soon as we started it up my name appeared on the screen and the "go to" point: Leszno. Well, it's gonna be a long flight starting well below final glide to destination. Arnold did the first flight and complained that the unit was beeping at him all the time. I think the gadget was just trying to say: "mate, you're not seriously trying to head for Leszno, are ya?"
a serious clean for the seat pan

last detailed inspections before rigging and a good wash
all nice and shiny ready to go on 17
