Well maintained Cherokee fully equipped for IFR flight with all avionics in working order and databases up to date. Used for flight instruction currently, for all stages from ab-initio to CPL Hr building and single engine IFR training. All ADs and maintenance programs up to date and nil corrosion. Plenty of time left on engine and prop and the aircraft has been flown regularly. Hrs are up to date as at 21/10/20, and it has flown around 180hrs so far in 2020.

Upgrades include dual-side toe brakes and Mogas STC so it can run on unleaded motor fuel and save $ with Fuel Tax credits and low fuel prices. Also runs on Avgas with no difference in performance either way.

I've gained my PPL, CPL, and Instructor Rating in this aircraft and now no longer need it for building hours and have no plans to use it for personal transport.

This is a great touring plane with lots of working toys in it. It probably best suits a private buyer who wants a reliable and reasonable transport that can fly IFR and get in an out of country airstrips.

It can carry 4 pax with full fuel although legroom is limited in the rear seat in this model.

It is flown regularly on cross-hire with a flying school and the hours will change.

Additional Features

Refer above. Compared to any other Cherokee around of this age this is loaded with avionics and the engine / mixture controls have been modified to improve the ergonomic layout of the cockpit. It's been hangared under the stars for the past two years, but hangared by its previous owners and the maintenance records are complete and all maintenance has been to a high standard. It was owned by an Avionics operation previously and used as a demo aircraft - hence the rich package included.

Last annual / 100hr service completed 15/10/20. All compressions good - call for the exact numbers. No major items due soon. Engine and prop more than half life remaining. Prop was new when fitted in 2010 so is first life and the engine was factory rebuilt by Lycoming at its last overhaul and was zero timed then.
