I'm testing the waters here... I just finished my instrument rating and though I know I should enjoy the lower fuel burn and operating costs of my current plane, I want something faster and/or bigger!

N8054S is just over 1000 hours since a major by Lycoming in '99. Total airframe time is around 6800 hours, but in my opinion it doesn't show. Most recent service was new mags, wires and fine-electrode plugs (starts like a dream). Avionics package includes King KMA24, KY197, KNS80 RNAV, KX165, KR87 ADF, KT76 and an Apollo 820 VFR GPS. Both Navigation radios are tied to King rectilinear indicators and a Century 21 single axis autopilot. Inspections are all current; IFR & ELT done in August 2015 and the annual is due in November. The logs and additional pictures are available upon request.

If you have any questions please let me know.
