I'm not sure I want to sell it, but I have been eyeing a Bonanza. So I will test the waters here.


Asking $69,900 OBO

1975 Piper Arrow II
6118 Total Time
Engine: 199 hours SMOH (Done by Triad in July 2012, NEW Lycoming cylinders, NEW Lycoming cam)
Prop: 199 hours SMOH (new hub in July 2012 $3800- No 100hr AD)



Avionics:
Garmin 430w WAAS GPS
Garmin 340 Audio Panel
Garmin 327 Transponder
Garmin 696 (panel mounted and coupled with 430w) w/ XM weather and music
Collins 251/351Nav/Com radios
Insight G2 graphic engine monitor with Fuel Flow (new 10/15)
Artex 406mhz ELT
Electric Trim (that works!)
Piper Autocontrol IIIB autopilot (coupled to GPS works very well)
Davtron Clock
LED Landing light
LED Panel Lights

Interior 9/10 New Leather 2-tone interior (seats, panels, carpet, and seatbelts) 2014
Exterior 8/10 (cowling repaired/repainted 2015)

Next Annual due Sept 2016
IFR Cert due August 2016

The annual I had done in July 2012 was very extensive and we replaced all hydraulic hoses, overhauled the landing gear, and went through the plane with a fine toothed comb. I have flow it 80+ hours a year for the last 4.5 years. It is an excellent IFR platform and I fly my family around it all the time. I try to fly the plane weekly, so it hasn't sat.

This last annual 9/2015 the compressions were all 77+ and we replaced the tires on the mains. I have had the oil analyzed every sample since the overhaul

Performance:
I fly her 24”/2400RPM and see 140-145 KTAS on about 9GPH
1,010 lbs useful load




Now the nitty gritty…

AOPA lists the VREF value of this plane at: $75,790 not counting the Garmin 696 that is mounted and coupled to the 430W

Asking $69,900 OBO

Don (flyguydon) is very familiar with this plane and has been the mechanic for me for the last 3 years. I am sure he can add some comments about this plane.

This is a nice plane. I have flown it and it is a hands off straight nice one. If he sells this, I am not sure I want to work on any Bonanzas!!

But you could charge Bo owners 2x as much, and they'd still think it was a bargain! :p
