History: Pilot made a precautionary landing on a highway on January 11, 2020 after he observed smoke coming from behind the panel. (The cause of the smoke was the failure of a small avionics cooling fan.) After the plane touched down the right wing struck a roadside sign 18” from the wingtip. The contact with the sign caused the aircraft to turn and come to a stop with the nose resting on a guardrail. The prop had repairable damage. The nose gear doors and right wing tip were damaged and were repaired by Hov-Aire in Three Rivers MI. Hov-Aire is the premier repair facility for PA-46 Aircraft since 1984. The engine was sent to G&N Aircraft for teardown inspection and was top overhauled in addition to having the case split and re-assembled with new bearings. All steel parts were magnafluxed in accordance with the Lycoming Service Bulletin. The engine received new pistons, rings, valve guides, exhaust valves, Tappet bodies, crankshaft bearings, a re-ground camshaft, cam bearings, all rod bolts, piston pins, new mag’s, counterweights, etc. The engine was then run through their dynomometer. A new Prop was ordered for the plane. Complete photos of the incident as well as electronic Logbooks are available upon request.
