Price drop must sell, one unique Baron with exceptional performance in very good condition. This is the lighter B55 model with an IO520 engine upgrade modification in place of the original IO470s with only a couple kilos extra weight. The 520 modification includes ram air scoops with the selectable unfiltered air feature that provides about 1/2" additional MP, gives more speed for a given fuel flow

Vortex generators, gap seals, wide chord flaps combine with the more powerful engines and these extra features confer excellent short field, climb and single engine performance. Have operated off 500m grass strip. NDH. Dual pole and dual toe brakes with heavy duty discs andthree puck calipers. Equipped with propellerunfeathering accumulators.

Economical cruise burns not much more than a high performance single, around 70 lt/hour, giving TAS 165kt for around 900nm safe range. Higher speed cruise 190kt+.
The vortex generators applied to the rudder as well as the wings make single engine ops easier and safe plus more rudder power for easy x-wind landings.

Basic weight 1544 kg, max 2313 = 769 useful. 515 litres useable fuel.

Engines; Very smooth running, very low oil burn, all new plugs. The R/H engine is the later IO-520-CB big front bearing and HD crankcase model. Expect several hundred hours to run, 2500 hrs total is not unusual.
