New member here an it is a pleasure to be a member of this forum.
We recently acquired a 600A and the owner did not have the gust lock for it.
I’ve exhausted all the places that I would normally look!
Does anyone know where one would be available?
Also, what’s the trick if any to installing and removing a pitot tube cover?
Thanks in advance!

Bill, my Aerostar came with a York Gust Lock and it seems to work well. They still sell them at Aircraft Spruce.

The original gust lock is pretty flimsy.
