2016 NexAir Avionics AirVenture Demo Aircraft: this year NexAir has begun a project we call NexAir’s Spinner to Tail Restoration.

In August 2015 NexAir Avionics purchased N741CD. This aircraft started life as a 2001 Cirrus SR22. In May of 2015 the airplane suffered a hard landing at the DeKalb Peachtree (KPDK) airport in Atlanta. The airplane experienced damage to the left main gear, nose gear, motor mount, left wing and of course the engine and propeller. With less than 1500 total time on the Hobbs, We felt this airplane was a good candidate for a NexAir total Spinner to Tail restoration. We purchase the airplane with the intent to make this airplane new again, inside and out.

This post will be updated during the restoration process showing the complete process and showcasing the total capability of the NexAir Avionics Team.
