Thread: prop balancing

  1. #1

    Default prop balancing

    Anyone know of a place that rents a dynavibe or something similar for dynamic balancing in state.

    I donít know if they rent it, but SilverSky Aviation at PAMR does balancing. I believe they are in the old Take Flight hangar.

    There is a good IA named Jim Harden who works out of a hangar on East Mackey lake east of Soldotna. He does prop balancing.

    Not in state but we have rented from Viking. They will mail it. I think it was $140/week. Good service.

    Donít know of any in state.

    It is easy to use. Dynavibe has plenty of instructions online. We are experimental so no A&P/IA required. Not sure of the OP situation.

    Thanks, the guy I use has experience with them and I didn't want to shell out $1600 to buy one to do just a few planes so rental is cheaper then flying it down to civilization.

    Next plane will be experimental. I am envious of what is available for them now a days.
