This would be an easy plane to make into an IFR trainer by adding a Val INS 429. I was planning to do that before we got our new plane.
This plane has been continuously hangared for at least the last 12 years. Located at KDVT Airport. The interior and paint are in very good condition. It has been professionally maintained by the same mechanic for 30 years who was part owner of the plane for about a decade. It is in excellent mechanical condition.
The last annual was in Feb 2016. Received new Gill Battery, replaced alternator, overhauled turn coordinator / Autopilot. Compressions at the annual were 76,76,75,74. Changed oil and filter in October and cleaned the plugs. Burns about a quart of oil every 7-10 hours which is very good.
Has nearly 1,000 Lb. Useful Load! 200lb baggage limit! Has tons of power and climbs with full fuel (50 gal) and 1-2 people at about 1,000 ft/min. If I’m not in a hurry I get 105kts at 7GPH! Inexpensive time builder.
This has been a fantastic fun aircraft but we need more room and are upgrading to a PA32 and we need the hanger space.
Engines / Mods / Prop
This engine has only been overhauled once and it made it to 2,600 hrs the first time.
A couple of cylinders have been replaced over the years as well. I just replaced the oil and cleaned the spark plugs.
There are reviews online saying this is perhaps the most reliable engine ever built.
Interior / Exterior
Interior and Exterior are both about an 8. The seats were redone recently and show very well. This plane has a beautiful paint job with only a few minor imperfections.
Log Books Complete Since new with original POH and Owner’s manual. No major damage history. All AD’s complied with.
Feel free to send me an offer and my partners and I will consider it. We need to make room for our new plane.
