One of the best equipped Full IFR Cherokees out there, with Garmin GMA 340 4 Place intercom with Pilot/co-pilot Isolation and split com (with aux connection for music), dual GNS 530/430 nav/com gps (with terrain), dual GI 106 A #1 vor indicator/glideslope, Garmin GTX 330 “mode S” transponder (which give you the ability to see traffic on both GPS display), JPI EDM 800 engine analyzer which displays fuel burn & quantity, individual CHT and EGT, oil temp, OAT, Manifold press, RPM, Battery voltage (this unit is connected to the GPS to display fuel burn to destination and ETA for any specific flight plan, acting like a FMS) back up JPI 450 fuel totalizer, Panel mounts for Bose noise canceling headsets, Century Autocontrol III auto pilot ad electric trim; great IFR training platform.

In 1973 Piper came out with the 6 inch fuselage stretch, which means 6 extra inch of much needed knee clearance for your rear passengers, the modern leather Interior is in great shape and it makes this a very comfortable travel machine.

The bullet proof de-rated 235 hp Lycoming 0-540 and the constant speed 2 balde propeller give this aircraft great performance, with a useful load of 1343 lbs. it will carry full fuel (84 gal-6 hours) 4 180 lbs. occupants and 100 lbs. of luggage at about 130 knots IAS.

Although nearing recommended overhaul time of 2000 hour, I’ve heard of people taking this de-rated version of the 0-540’s all the way to 3000 hour; this one in particular has a set of chrome cylinder which do not rust (I have oil analysis results to prove it).

Owned and operated by a licensed aircraft mechanic, meticulously maintained, complete logbooks, no damage history.
