A sad loss, but in my experience, the company Monty built is in very capable hands (X2) and will continue to thrive and build upon his legacy.

Monty's family got a beautiful day to send him on. The service was comfortable, in that old-school way, a validation of a life lived well. Final rest is on a pretty Oklahoma hilltop. Doesn't get much better.

Here's that RV grin. See you around buddy.

I never got to meet Monty... but Allen and Rhonda are my good friends, and I offer them my most sincere condolences.

I did my own personal toast to Monty Barrett this afternoon. Godspeed, Monty.
(technical aside: yes, it's been humid in Michigan; time to change out the desiccant in the dehydrator plugs again. Can you tell which cylinder has both valves closed?)

#1 cylinder has both both vales closed. The BLUE desiccant is the clue.

Default Class Act

Several years ago a neighbor built an intentionally very light Bearhawk and queried me as to what power plant I would choose. The IO-540 C4B5 was suggested by myself but my neighbor went one step further:
He purchased a Reno race-ready Barrett IO-540 (dynoed over 330HP) intended for a Glasair. The Glasair owner evidently ran short of funds and it was purchased from Barrett outright.

During the installation process I contacted Barrett Precision Engines as to their recommendations, break in numbers etc. Through the process I got to know them, albeit at a distance as to the quality of Monty's work, family and legacy.
Superb is a gross understatement.

Prayers forthcoming for his family.
V/R
Smokey

PS: The Bearhawk performance? Phenomenal...


Paired with a MT 3 blade aerobatic prop it would exceed 4000 FPM at SL solo and 2500 FPM at Leadville with 2 aboard and full fuel and best of all, turbine smooth...
