      GE 225 controls fuel system at one of the major NY airports. I forget the details; it's been several months since I corresponded with the admin. Will follow up this week.

      I wouldn't mind camping out at Infoage for a month during the summer to fix stuff like this - I mentioned this once last time. But I can fix anything if I didn't have to worry about working a day job - and with the right parts  - plus I have my own test equip and tools :)  I just have to figure out how to pay my bills then, these days it's hard to save up for things like this.
