I have an Allegro 2000 ELSA (N661WW) that I built from the Czech company Fantasy Air kit manufactured in 2005. The kit came with a small round door lock for the pilot’s door. I have since lost the key for the lock. I cannot find a locksmith that can find a blank that will fit the lock. This could be because the lock is probably foreign made. I am looking for some Allegro 2000 owner that has this same lock (and key) on their Allegro 2000 airplane. If I can find such, I would like to ask the owner if he would have a second key made from the key he has. I will gladly purchase the second key. I would really appreciate a reply if there is such an owner out there.

Maybe Doug Hempsted has some? Many years ago Thom Riddle sourced the key blanks from Europe. His e-mail is "riddletr" at the gmail. He might still have some, or have the data on part numbers, etc.

I'm not sure if mine are the same as your keys. Mine say "FAB" and have a comically large rectangular head which tapers down to the metal end of the key. If you have the same as mine, I believe they are "SKO-3IP" key blanks.

Just to follow up on this. In my quick research, it looks like a company called JMA produces SKO-3IP blanks. It appears that they have a location in Texas according to jmausa.com. Their phone number listed there is (817) 385-0515.
Some data on the keyblank can be found at:

Hopefully this is helpful and not a deep rabbit hole.

Bradley,

Thanks for the info. I have contacted Doug and he thinks he may have a few keys. He will let me know Monday. I also will follow up with Thom Riddle as necessary.
