Beringer brakes

Post by Cluemeister »

Had Matco brakes on my last plane, and wasn't terribly thrilled with them. Upgraded to Beringer, and what an improvement. So when I upgraded to the Tsi, I wanted Beringer again. Henry at Midwest Sky Sports said "sure!", so I placed my order. Here are the Beringers as they are being installed.

Tubeless tires, and solid braking power.

That looks very nice.

I haven't installed the undercarriage yet on mine.
Were the stainless steel brake lines also part of the change, or are those standard?

That's probably the coolest nonstandard option I've seen on a TSi!! Nicely done!

Also, it's one of the only nonstandard options I've seen on a TSi, so way to be a trailblazer 8-)

Editing to answer Philip's question, the steel braided lines are nonstandard as well. Standard lines for Sling are plastic tubing

Hmmm, I like the custom Beringer brakes (and wheels?) on your TSi. Do you know what the part numbers are in case I wanted to do the same here with my Canada build?

I'm not sure they have a part number :)

If you contact Beringer Aero in South Carolina, I believe they can tell you what parts are involved. I believe it's around $5-6k US for the brakes.

For anyone interested in the Beringer brakes for the TSi I did contact Beringer-Aero-USA and got the part numbers, etc. PM me and I can send to you if you like.
