I have found one of these serial numbers in my log book and the MFG date is actually 11/06. If you notice the bulletin says in production, not the actual manufacture date. So some units may have been in production in October and completed in November. So make sure you double check the serial number not just the dates.

I don't know what is more weird....

That I have two cypres in my logbook with SNs 2 digits off, or that they are in the gap between some of the SNs that are listed...

So... Do I get to keep the $70, as a rigger, for doing the re-open and re-pack for my customers who are affected???

If the Cyres units were bought from the same store, then the close serial numbers are not that weird. The few distributors in the US (there used to only be 8, probably not many more now) buy in batches, and any other resalers of the units are probably buying from them.

As for the $70, if I were a rigger with customers who had affected units, I would mention to them that they are getting $70 from AirTec for their troubles, and as a rigger doing work for the customer, I would bill for my time as normal. Common rates for an open and close without repack range from $15 to $20, and a repack is between $50 and 70 these days.

You're not as good as you think you are. Seriously.

Anyone sent there's in and gotten it back??? Just wondering what the turnaround time is? Mine was sent in about 2 weeks ago.

Of course I saw this 2 weeks after I got a repack and had to send it in...B|
