Pulled the trigger


Recommended Posts

Been almost a year that I joined this community - when starting to look for a plane. Here in Europe, the market is rather small. My journey made me visit at least 5 birds - and I'm greatful people here would always be providing helpful answers. 

I closed the deal last autumn. Thought it's time to introduce her. It's a 1978 J - with 1400h and in pretty basic condition. Happy to start transforming her into a hopefully safe and faithful IFR companion.

Dude that plane looks awesome!  Love the prop!

Can you guys use the G5s like us “N”tails?  Those were a nice ifr upgrade.  If you don’t mind spending a bit more, 2xGI275s will do the same thing and fit in existing holes.  Does it have an ifr gps?  That might be step 1?!

Yes integration of G5s is possible - even here :). It's planned, but not for the super-near future. I don´t have an IFR GPS. I'm still a VFR only pilot - thus not missing it yet.

I was hesitating a lot, whether to go for a IFR equipped aircraft or not. Though it might be more expensive in the end - I like having things exatly the way I want them. That extra degree of freedom made me go for a rather non-equipped aircraft. 

Thanks for the welcome to everybody!

@tmo all it should take is a Prior Permission Request (PPR) with our Base Ops. I am actual working this weekend and can go over there and check. I've been flying twice here at ETIC when we had Civilian Fixed Wing Aircraft come in and land. One guy conducted Night Pattern work (I know because they wouldn't allow mixed NVG and unaided in the pattern).

If it isn't a problem, please do - it'd be fun to fly over once things are more normal and cross border travel isn't so restricted.
