This blog is to chronicle my attempt to restore a 1972 Piper Cherokee 140e. This plane is the 'dog' of the airport and has been sitting untouched for 10 years. I purchased the plane and am attempting to restore it to flyable condition.

GPS is alive
Well the gamble of a new battery seems to have paid off. The avionics guy dropped off the KLX135 after a battery change. I had to let it sit for about 30 minutes but sure enough it finally found enough satellites to figure out its position.
She wants to go!
This has turned out to be a great weekend and I'm very stoked about the GPS unit working. While my primary nav will be an iPad, it will be nice to have something of a backup in plane.
The line guys are enjoying having the plane back together as well....
