Customer Acceptance and Delivery

 

The cowl is reattached, the airframe cleaned up and prepared for its owner (Fig. 16). In approximately 14 weeks, just about every performance parameter (speed, climb, take-off distance) has improved 20% to 100%.

Standing on the ramp, it is easy to spot a JetPROP DLX (Fig 17). In addition to the four blade propeller, the cowl has been elongated 17 inches and exhaust stacks have been added to help the Pratt & Whitney's PT6A turbine engine breathe.

After customer briefing and checkout, a satisfied conversion customer (Fig. 18) takes off for home.
