    Default Looking for Prebuy Inspection Near Macon, GA

    I am hoping to become an owner of a shortwing piper and a member of what seems to be a cool community, but I need to get a prebuy inspection done first. The plane is currently in Werner Robins (5A2) but could be moved a short way for the right mechanic. I would love to find someone with Tripacer experience, but, if need be, tube and fabric experience, in general, would probably suffice. I would greatly appreciate any information on who I could go to for such an inspection! Feel free to ask for any other information!

    Thanks!

    Welcome, do you know the N number? I did a lot of work on a Tri-Pacer years ago that ended up at Werner Robins. Have you read this article?

    Glenn, that is a great idea and I will certainly look into it! Steve, I just read it and found it to be a hugely informative thread, thanks for pointing it out! As far as the N number- it is N3263Z, though it had most of its work done by a guy out of TQE up here in Nebraska.

    Don, I am planning to if everything goes well with the inspection! I was also able to find a pre buy mechanic who actually rebuilt his own Pacer, so I suppose that brings my search to an end. Looking forward to being a part of this awesome community in what I hope will be the near future!

    If I wasn't 2000 miles away, I'd be looking.
