pitot/static line slack

Postby KevinC » Sat Jun 16, 2007 1:47 pm

I re-mounted the wings last night to do cables and jury struts.  While messing around making sure they folded correctly I noticed there needs to be quite a bit of slack in the pitot/static lines in order for them to fold back.  When wings extended there is a pretty big loop of excess line.  Do the lines get disconnected here instead of a bunch of slack?  Anyone have a picture of the finished product folded and extended?

thanks

Kevin,

No, the lines do not have to be disconnected. Just fold them back and then secure with white wire/zip ties to the rack above the door structure and route them along it and down the front of the door. When you fold the wings forward the lines will form a loop and you won't even notice them anymore, at least I don't.
