They just quoted me $125 and said the paperwork takes longer than the test, about 30 minutes max. They were recommended by several RV guys here in San Antonio.

Just to clarify things a bit: on a first time check the shop needs to verify "altitude data correspondence" with the altimeter, on most glass that uses serial data from the PFD thats pretty easy, if you have a gray code hook up use or a seperate altitude encoder than that means running both the encoder and altimeter thru the full range of altitudes and verify they match within 125'.

So it depends on what you have as to the cost of a first time check.

Also, shop has to pull transponder and/or EFIS to get serial number of units for logbook entry and for the avionics shop records...

Yes this will be the first time check so they will have to open up avionics compartment ? of should I provide transponder numbers from records ?
