In 2016, Chapter 186 President, Danny Miller experienced a catastrophic avionics failure in his Lancair 360 on approach to KHEF. 2.5 years later, after removing all the old avionics and wiring, and then installing a new glass panel and significant testing, the airplane is ready to fly – first with several high speed taxi tests and then several flights in the pattern. Danny will discuss what caused the failure, the installation of the new glass panel, why it took 2.5 years, and his test flight plans. Besides being the Chapter President, Danny is also an Aerospace Engineer, EAA Technical Counselor and Flight Advisor, an A&P and is currently employed with the FAA.
