When we provide a DHC-2 Beaver rewire, you can have confidence that it is done right the first time!
1. Do you provide a standard kit?
We do have a harness board to fabricate DHC-2 Beaver wire harnesses. However in over a decade of experience what we have found is that no beaver is the same. There are always slight differences. Before building any harness we want to see pictures and have an in depth discussion about your project. This way we can understand your goals, what you expect and meet your needs.
2. Can a harness be installed in 2 days?
No, this is impossible. We have been involved in so many DHC-2 beaver overhauls and this is not possible, no matter what some may say. Not to say that wiring a DHC-2 beaver takes a long time, it just takes longer than 2 days to make sure everything is done properly and in accordance with applicable safety and industry standards.
3. What is the cost for a DHC-2 Beaver Wire Harness?
It really depends on what we need to provide. Some companies will quote you $10,000. This is a dead giveaway that it will cost you way more, probably 50% more. We analyze the project, will give you REALISTIC numbers, not something low to just get the job and then bill you lots of money after. We keep it real and reasonable. We are always open to discuss options, budgets and what would you like to have installed. Some want a full glass cockpit with autopilot and others want a working airplane with basic systems.
4. Do you fabricate all wire harnesses in your shop?
Yes, we stamp and terminate everything in our state of the art shop.
5. How many DHC-2 rewires have you done?
It has been so many that we have no idea. Over a decade of experience, there is nothing that we have not seen or had to deal with.
