Anyone have any idea what's going on with the backorder on the ADS-B? My order has been on backorder status since July. Thanks

Bill

Bill,

I agree with Gary. I mailed my order & check on Sept. 9 from Albany, NY, snail mail. FedEx delivered the kit to my door on the 18th.

BTW, please see my blog about ADS-B antennae location on RV-12.

Jim & Gary,

Thanks for the heads up. I did call and talked to Barbara. Must have been a bad day, my order to Flightline Interiors also never got conveyed and when I called them they said they've been waiting for two months for me to give my colors to them.

All ok now, got my ABS-D today and Abby is rushing my interior order. Van's was very apologetic and Barbara in her usual efficient manner gets it done. Gotta love that woman.

Jim, what is your blog address?

You got that right! Both Abbie and Barbara are two very wonderful people! Both have gone above and beyond for me in the past, and service like that is really appreciated in this day and age.
