997's Annual Inspection

997 on jacks to swing the gear.
We took our Piper Arrow 997 to Vertex Aviation Services for the first time for an annual inspection. Vertex is located at Skagit Regional Airport about fifteen minutes flight time from our homebase at Bellingham International Airport.

We are very happy with the service at Vertex. Owner Lin Holdeman squeezed us into an already busy shop schedule. You can read more about the annual here.

Owner Lin giving us personal attention.

This week we picked 997 up to return her to the hangar at Bellingham. Come along for the ride.

Wayne and I enjoy flying throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Pilots and aviation enthusiasts will enjoy reading about some of our adventures in Flying the Pacific Northwest. Follow us to out-of-the-way spots in Western Washington and Oregon where recreational pilots and their aircraft have the freedom to pursue adventure. It's available in print and e-book formats at Amazon and at most online booksellers. -- Margy


  1. Oh my goodness, I knew you were adventuresome by living where you do but had no idea that you also explored by small plane (me, the white knuckler, can't quite imagine doing that ;-) ) xx J.

    1. I'm a fair weather flier. I hate lots of bumps. Good thing Wayne doesn't like them much either. - Margy
