Lots of flying over the Labor Day weekend. The big item was getting N701GV up to 17990 and running out of VFR airspace. The climb took 38 minutes and 100+ FPM of climb was still left at 50MPH indicated.
Parts were ordered for the roller-bearing mod on the nose gear. This should improve the feel of the rudders in the air. I will also adjust the lower strut bearing to see if it can be tightened and remove the V-notches the nose strut sits on.
