I need a new actuator for one of my main landing gears on my PA46 Malibu Mirage. This is the hydraulic cylinder that raises the gear and keeps it up in flight.
I was quoted a price of £8,000 for a reconditioned unit today which is totally beyond the pale.
I was once told there is a guy in France who has one or more PA46’s that he got in scrap condition after accidents, including the PA46 that ran off the end of the runway at Courchevel. I understand he sells parts from these aircraft.
Does anyone know this person or be able to put me in touch please.
He’s on MMOPA. I’ll PM you his details
I know who you mean. Let me know if you need the details.
Maybe buy a fixed gear Cirrus next time 😉
Thanks very much Denopa. I have emailed Michael.
MMGreve, is Michael Chartier the guy you were thinking of?
