  • B&C 200G Alternator

    I bought my BC12D last summer and it came with a 12A alternator made by B&C, the 200G model. The alternator was in a box of other parts and hasn't been installed on the plane. There is an STC for the TCraft for the 30A version but not this one. I have heard that there might be some field approvals out there and I was hoping someone could help me out with this. If you have any leads on a field approval I would like to know about it. Also, has anyone recently tried to get a field approval (for anything) based on an older field approval on a similar aircraft?

    Thanks,
    Shaun

        Who has the STC for the 30A alternator?

          I did a field approval on one. Not a big deal at all. Like Tim says, B&C are good to work with and will help you. I think the one I did is on here somewhere or if it isn't I can scan it and get it here.

            I have a 200G on F/A as well. They offered an improved regulator within the last few years so make sure it's up to date. Best deal in town for an alternator if a Continental drive gear is available.

              Get me any copies of field approvals and I will post them to the forum.

                Hi Tim. I sent you my Airworthiness file for N36007 a while back. In there are several Unobtanium mods, but I can also copy the B&C alternator and starter plus Odessy AGM battery. Just let me know.

                  Just remember. If I remember right once an engine driven alternator has been put on you have to comply with all the transponder and ADSB requirements FOREVER, even if you want to remove the alternator later. If that isn't true (just what I remember, kind of like if you put float fittings on) someone chime in with good gouge. I have a wind generator and battery box for my planes. I REALLY don't want to haul all that electronic junk around forever!

                      Good point Hank for those exposed to rule airspace. Some of us are not. Modern light weight high energy batteries can be used for multiple starts and recharged by solar or dedicated trickle devices.

                        My problem wasn't with putting in a transponder and ADSB when it is needed, but being REQUIRED to haul it around when I didn't. That is why I was worried I didn't understand the rules well enough. My understanding (knowing i AM NOT sure I am reading it right) is that once an engine driven electrical system is put in you ALWAYS have to have the transponder and ADSB. I think we are close to having light weight units for the sailplane guys that are low power use that could be used with a battery. Then I could put it in when I needed it, but could leave it out when i am just doing flying out in the boonies. I just don't have that much useful load to play with to haul around equipment I don't need or want 90% of the time. When I want to fly to AirVenture however!!!

                            Hank, ADSB is worthless even for paper weight going into AirVenture. Your screen becomes nothing but targets with no separation. It could be a graphical "approach plate" showing the route as a solid blue line over top of your magenta line. Plus all the targets that are not equipped with "out" are out there too. In past couple years, we turn it off, its a distraction...eyes outside.

                              When I SAY "Going to AirVenture" I mean the GOING, not using it when I get there. I use ADSB in the 172 I fly (I know, NOT a fun plane) and it IS kind of useful to let you know where to look. What I find interesting about it is how many planes are out there that I never even saw before, and sometimes never see even now! They show up on the screen and I STILL never see them! What SCARES me now is how many pilots are so busy watching the magenta line and ADSB that they forget about looking outside. When people get so dependent on the electronics what are they going to do when the electrical system fails? I have lost GPS and Com in a rental once and the whole electrical system in another! It was NO BIG DEAL!!! I had the sectional in my lap already and when the GPS went belly up I already knew exactly where I was. I only use GPS to back up Ded Reckoning and Pilotage. The total electrical failure was rental 150 and I landed flaps up. Again, NO BIG DEAL! I really worry about the new generation pilots. When their electronics fail what are they going to do? I'm with you. EYES OUTSIDE!!! I tell people I have a full glass cockpit in my Taylorcraft. Windows all over the place. I just need a few more! The 45 will have skylights and if I live long enough I will probably put them in the 41 too when she gets a recover.
