Default Mobile Services?

With my fuselage heading to the hangar on 1/28 and my inspection scheduled for 2/20, I’m going to need a few services performed in my hangar at KISM:

- Aircraft weighing
- Transponder/ADS-B check
- Pitot-static check (not necessary prior to inspection, of course, but might as well get it done)

I’m looking for recommendations of a mobile service provider who can handle these tasks.

Have you checked with Jesse Saint at Saint Aviation? He's not too far away at Marion County Airport. http://www.saintaviation.com/

I asked the same question to my local crew and a number of guys said ‘this guy was top notch. However, I haven’t used him yet so can’t speak from first hand experience.

Thanks, guys. I've emailed both Jesse and Sal. Hopefully, between them, I should be OK.

I've used Absolute Aviation in Edgewater. 727-415-7999.

Also, I don't think the transponder check has to be done before the inspection either, just before first flight.

Only if you're in transponder required airspace. If you're not, uninstall the thing, do your early test flying outside of txp airspace, and fly the airplane to a shop for the check when the time comes.

Point taken. My point was more that it wasn't required before the inspection.

Been a while since I lived in ORL area, but I used to do for work Billy Webb at Bilmar Avionics there at ISM. Good people to work with. If he is still around tell him I say Hi!

I wasn't disagreeing. Just pointing to a path that has one less hurdle for some of us.

A number of local EAA chapters have scales you can borrow, if you’re a member.
