For most Beech Bonanza, Baron and Travel Air owners it is a tool
that many of us view with envy for servicing our aircraft landing gear
and for the routine annual gear swing during annual inspections, not to
mention the ability to move the aircraft around the hangar floor and the
ease of storage of the unit under the belly of the aircraft (assuming
no belly antenna interference).
Many folks have found original factory
Beech Jacks floating around for sale at aviation auctions and eBay, some
of which were well used and required some refurbishing to insure
continued safe service. Below are DIY options, an homage to the original factory jacks if you
will, that might be of interest to the Beech community.
