    Quik wing service

    Now that P&M in receivership how does a quik owner get the 5 yearly manufacturer sail strip down? Wanted to get mine done this month. It was booked in to P&M this Tuesday!

    If your competent then do it yourself, have another who's equally able assist you, both enter signatures and BMAA numbers in your logbook clarifying what work was done.
    All hardware available from LAS in Devon

    Are Ian & Denise at Pennine Flexwing services still an option? Ex-P&M (Rochdale), so they know what they are doing.

    Tel Ian 07903 413901 or Denise Tel: 07970 752356

    Lucky it wasn’t last Tuesday! Might have been difficult to get it back for a while! I imagine some people with services and repairs are in that particular boat.....

    The difficulty with doing the wing service yourself is that you won't be able to get any spares. I'm shocked that they couldn't even keep going through what should be the busy season.

    Spares for the wing service if your wing frame and sail are genuinely in good condition should be minimal ie nuts and bolts and batten bungee.
    A problem may arise though if you are requiring any kind of ali tubes, flying wires etc...

    i think p and m put restrictions on what ian and denice can work on . but not sure how that stands now that the s--ts hit the fan ?, maybe give the bmaa a call and ask if they can sanction such work being carried out by them. they are brilliant to deal with ...
