Hi to all. :D

I am working as an aircraft mechanic in an Aerial Photographic Survey company located in France. We have 3 Piper Aztec modified for aerial photography, and they fly all over Europe and Africa. We are currently rebuilding a PA23 C Aztec that is equiped with Airesearch turbochargers. We have the original Airesearch Parts Catalog and Maintenance manual but unfortunately we cannot find any source of spare parts. If anyone here knows a dealer or someone that can help us, it will be greatly appreciated. :geek:

The aircraft is in good condition, engines are good two, but we are looking for 2 solenoid valve Part Number 096-SCD-004 (Airesearch P/N) We have tried desperatly different solutions, including repairing these valves but it cannot be achieved regarding condition of these items. :(

I was also wondering if Rajay still sells turbocharger kits in the case we can remove the Airesearch turbos and put in place Rajay turbo that looks to be more commonly available. :?: Does anyone here know what would be the best solution in order to obtain the best reliability in flying operation with a Turbo Aztec ?

Thanks a lot in advance

Best Regards from France
