||Nice Turbo Arrow IV which has been used for long distance travel across Europe. Great versatility of the aircraft! Equipped for serious IFR travel in the FLs but is also usable at short grass strips. Cruises at 150 KTAS in low FLs (100/130) burning only 38 litres/h at LOP with the turbo and speed kit.

Forgot to mention earlier: new front windscreen 3 years ago. Great visibility now.
||Great tourer. Fill up the tanks and you have more than 7h endurance while travelling at 150 ktas (272 litres full tank and burn 38 litres/h). The fuel flow meter will give you peace of mind knowing exactly how much is left in the tanks and you can keep flying and minimising ‘extra’ fuel stops just to be on the safe side - fuel planning now made easy!
At the same time drop into short grass fields without any problem. Great take off performance too with the turbo even if hot and high.
The autopilot is coupled to the Garmin 430. No more need to keep adjusting heading bug, so just recline your the seat and let the autopilot follow the magenta line until destination (GPSS steering).
Thanks to the GAMInjectors no problem in flying LOP. We have done so for many hundreds of hours.
