Logbooks - We digitize ALL logbooks available, if it's not digitized then it's not available unless otherwise noted.

Total times are per last logbooks entry on 12/13/2022


***NOTE on Total Times:  There are a few discrepancies (unexplained) entries in the logbooks that confuse total times.

1.  Aircraft logbooks:  multiple tach replacements; entry on 1/17/2019 increases AFTT by exactly 1k hours and we believe this is a typo.  Based on entries up to this date the aircraft should have 2307.4 hrs, not 3307.4. 

2.  Engine logbooks go back to 1960, however this was with the original engine, not current engine.  On 11/10/93 we believe the engine was changed as the tach entry is now matching aircraft N6971E.  On 9/1/12 the log reflects and adjustment of 209 hrs for TSMOH however no info listed why and on 1/17/2019 TSMOH reverts to the original TSMOH of 297.9 hrs.


Recommend you review the logbooks and make your own determination.  Total times listed are based on what we've reviewed.
