I would be careful about deflating the trailer tires. Lower than required pressure can cause overheating and failure. Perhaps the tires that should be deflated are the plane's tires. Just a thought.
A friend of mine trailers helicopters very frequently and I don't think he deflates the trailer tires. The helicopters do not have tires and just sit on the skids. I will check with him the next times I see him.
The tires referred to are NOT the trailer tires, but the aircraft tires. Sorry my post was not clear.
It's been a few years but I had mine shipped from central Tenn. to Eastern Va. It was cheaper than renting a UHaul, buying gas and hotel room. I used Tony Partain. He is in Bend Or. and does a lot of Van's deliveries. His trucks are routed such that pickups and drop-offs are scheduled all long route, so your plane may be in a trailer with one or two others and scheduling depends on what else has been scheduled along the route. This make it much cheaper than point-to-point shipping.
I had zero problems.
Do u have his contact information?
It's best just to google Tony Partain Trucking. There is one story of a failure, but I think that is by far the exception to the rule.
It came right up and I reached out to him for a rough estimate
I'd like to know how it works out.
I'll let u know. Still waiting on a response.
Hoping he will respond early next week due to holidays.
Just wanted to follow up, they have never responded to my email.
Will try again, but is not looking good
$4200 for cross country shipping.
Tony was a nice guy.
It is a long way. Not saying it's a bad price, but I'm not sure i can make it work at that price
