As much as I don't want to sell her it's time to move onto other things. This would have to be one of the lowest time Tigers in the world, it's done less than 1300hrs since new and is in great condition.
It's also one of the very last AA-5B's built, the serial number is 1318 out of 1323 that were built between 1975-1979.
Being one of the last built means it has all the best bits like the shock absorbers on the nose wheel and the good glue that doesn't debond like the old purple glue did in the early models.
The engine is a 180hp O-360A4K with the upgraded sensenich prop. The Mags have only just had their 500hr service and the engine is in perfect condition with 78 compressions on all cylinders and was built by Brisbane aero.
This aircraft will cruise at a true 130kts at 40L/hr or around 36L/hr at 125kts.
It is an absolute pleasure to fly and would be perfect for someone who likes touring as you can fold the rear seats down to make a huge cargo area.
It is fully IFR capable but I've only ever flown VFR.
All AD's are current and up to date.

This aircraft will not disappoint and has been safely tucked away in the hanger when not in use ever since I've owned it.
