We are all very happy to welcome Mr. Jay Grafton to “Team Mt. Vernon” as a full time Certified Flight Instructor. He will also be working on Sundays as lineman at SRT Aviation. Jay is ready to go and has many hours training in our Cessna 172P aircraft and he will soon be ready to go in the Aeroprakt aircraft. Please come by and talk to Jay, or call to make an appointment,  and don’t miss another week of delaying your flight training. We have also acquired a new Redbird simulator. Call today to get on the schedule, rain or shine.


The Importance of Dynamic Propeller Balancing

Balancing your aircraft propeller increases the life of your engine, improves performance, reduces vibration and saves maintenance dollars. An unbalanced propeller system, including spinner assembly, can cause vibration that is detectable through testing or even in-cabin by the flight crew. While annoying, the noise and movement transmitted by these vibrations are the least of the problems that can manifest. Numerous minor issues, such as cracked sheet metal, persistent avionics failures, thrown belts, and excessive light bulb failures, can be corrected by balancing. Catastrophic damage to the engine power train and other dynamic components can also occur if the imbalance isn’t addressed properly.
