--bottom line....the aircraft is well-built by a gentleman who knew what he was doing.
-Currently owned by 2 military pilots; we've been gone off & on for the past 2 years due to mobilization, and are currently putting the aircraft together after it was in storage...please be patient for updates to information on this page, as we are trying to be as accurate as possible with information. Both pilots are approximately 5'10-5'11"...the adjustable rudder pedals are currently fully extended.
-Authorized for instrument and aerobatic flight per Airworthiness Certificate issued by FAA. Note: neither of the current owners advocate or endorse aerobatics in this aircraft...it's your decision on your own. 2006 Conditional Innspection is complete, aircraft flies great!
-Aircraft Total Time ~580; Engine Time Since Major Overhaul ~540; Engine Time in Service ~2600. Brand-new Top End by Superior as part of the conditional that is just completed. What this means: brand-new cylinders, pistons, rings, valves, rods, everything except the crankshaft and case. Basically, all the items that wear out (rings, valves, cylinders & pistons) is brand-new, meaning a long service life to go.
