Jon's WorkBench

For the past several years Jon McLin has been relentless and prolific in his research of all things related to the Cardinal. He has blessed us with the results of his research in many ways. Much of his material fits into the tech pages and can be found there, but other material doesn't quite fit there or is still under development.

This space has been created for Jon to develop and share some of that work. Some of these pages may become technical pages, or may stay here as reference documents. We shall see how this develops. For now, sit back and enjoy Jon's work, and note that other that this note, Jon controls the content of this section. Thank you Jon!

Thanks for the opportunity to directly contribute to CFO content.

CFO Members,
In our 15 years of Cardinal ownership, I have learned a tremendous amount both from the CFO and numerous aviation maintenance professionals I am fortunate to be able to call friends in the maintenance and improvement of our Turbo RG. Cardinals are wonderful aircraft, and by documenting and communicating our lessons-learned we can help ensure that they continue to fly for many more decades. I hope you find my contributions of value, and please help me improve the content. If you see an error or an ambiguity, do not hesitate to let me know. You can do that via the Community, or via the email button on my entry in the "Members Helping Members" page.

Jon McLin, N34077
