"I'm a little slow getting this posted but one week ago Saturday I picked up my A36 at D'Shannon after they completed adding the tip tanks and flap gap seals to complete a Genesis conversion.

Scott was great to work with. He did everything he said and was on time and on budget. I asked Scott how quickly we could get it done if everything was well planned in advance. He said 10 days and that is what it was. I Dropped it off on Tuesday afternoon May 1 about 3 pm and it was ready on Friday the 11th!

I was a little worried about the paint scheme prior to dropping it off because we didn't do a mockup and it was hard for me to visualize what it would look like. No cause for concern as I think the paint turned out great! It's the first thing people comment and compliment on. They did an amazing job matching it up considering the existing paint is 20 years old.

The best part, and honestly the main reason I added the tips is the GW increase. She now sports a 1616 lb useful load!!!" - John Bailey. Please view installation pictures in our photo gallery.

" Took a lot of research and hard thinking before putting a Genesis Kit on my G36 Bonanza. I could not be happier, N7WZ is flying smooth and no noticeable difference in flight characteristics. Love the endurance , peace of mind on fuel reserves and the Gross Weight Increase. CHTs are looking great with the cooling baffles. LED lights gives an excellent cosmetic appeal with functionality. Scott was very helpful while making decisions on the conversion." Nitin Desai, MD Please view his photos in his album.

Q: What is the useable fuel available in the Tip Tanks?

A: Out of 40 Gallons total, 40 Gallons are useable.

Q: What minimum fuel is required in the Tip Tanks at Max Gross Weight?

A: Zero.

Q: How does the engine burn the fuel in the Tip Tanks?

A: The fuel in the Tip Tanks is pumped into the Main Tanks. A switch is installed in the instrument panel to enable the transfer pumps. Insure you burn sufficient fuel from the Main tanks prior to activating the transfer pump. If the Main tank is pumped past full, excess fuel will be vented overboard.
