1979 Arrow IV (normally aspirated), 1/3 share, hangared at KPAE (Everett, WA)

One of my two co-owners has decided that his transportation needs now require having a high performance plane of his own, and he is selling his share in our well equipped and very well maintained Arrow IV. I thought I would throw this out on an informal basis to see if any forum members might be interested or might know someone who is.

The Arrow has been hangared at KPAE for the past 20 years, where it will remain. It has been maintained almost exclusively by Regal Aviation, the premier shop on the field. The current, very cordial partnership has been together for nearly that long. All are experienced, instrument rated pilots. We do scheduling on-line and there are rarely scheduling conflicts that cannot be worked out.

Here are some of the specifics on the plane. I plan to post more details and pictures in coming days, but if you want more information right away you can post a question or send me a PM.

Total time: 5976 since new

Engine: 1503 since "zero time" factory rebuilt. There have been no significant engine issues since new. We do oil changes at 40-50 hour intervals with oil analyses.

Prop: 1503 since overhaul
