DA42 TDI 100hr oil change near OWD

Post by Colin »

Has anyone had one done recently in the area around Norwood?

I like the shop on the field, but they can only do Austro engines. I think they are getting certified for it, though.

Ideally it would be somewhere I could fly, hang out while they did the work, and fly back.

It’s a little far for you, but there’s a shop at MGJ (Take Flight) that does oil changes for me when I’m visiting the NY area. That said, I have Austro engines, and their flight school is Austro based AFAIK.

They’re pretty quick with oil changes. I’ll either wait in their small lounge or walk to town (30m each way) to grab a bite. By the time I’m back they’re done.

I had the folks at Sandpiper Air at EWB go to get certified at Continental so they could do my current annual. It was a major one, replacing the gearboxes, timing chains etc. I’m super happy with the attention to detail they have been giving the plane. They used to do the annuals on my DA42 but when I bought my 42 I was flying it to Southtec in NC. So glad I have Sandpiper to take care of the plane now. Talk to Mark there.
