Detailed Description

A Beautiful 1974 Piper Arrow With A Very Low Time (50 Hours) 200 HP Injected Engine and New Scimitar 2-Blade Prop. IFR With A Garmin 530W As The Hub. Privately Owned. All Original Logs.

Avionics / Equipment

Garmin GNS 530W IFR approved for LPV approaches. (430's are good, but the larger 530 screen is great.)
Garmin GTX330 transponder with TIS traffic displayed on the 530.
Garmin GMA 340 Audio Panel with 4-place intercom and an AUX music input.
JPI EDM-700 Engine monitor with oil temp and OAT options. There is a data download port in the panel, plus you also get the device that lets you offload the data onto a USB drive for easy home reviewing.
Second Nav and Comm radios (modern NARCOs with digital displays).
King KN64 digital DME.
Stratus I ADS-B receiver for in-cockpit weather on ForeFlight.
Avionics cooling fan.
LED landing light. A better landing light that never burns out.
Avionics master switch.
Electric pitch trim on the pilot's yoke.

Airframe

5,300 hours with no known corrosion.
Bogert copper battery cables and a MagnaFlite lightweight starter.
Automatic gear extension system with heated pitot.
All static wicks in place.

Engines / Mods

Overhauled this winter by a shop highly recommended by highly experienced Chris Air in Newport, RI. The break-in went very well (Boy, were we careful to obey the rules!) We are at about 50 hours so far. It is running great and the oil consumption is already very low.
The prop was the original and we hoped to stretch it another year, but it could not be overhauled. $9,000 later, we had a new Scimitar "Top Prop" 2-blade prop. I was not looking forward to a 3-blade conversion because it costs you some cruise speed and it defeats the original look I have chosen to maintain. It was a good decision. The climb is great and there was no loss of cruise speed.

Interior / Exterior

New leather interior by Airtex in Trenton, New Jersey in January 2011, including sound damping and new ΒΌ" windshields and side windows.
Rosen sun visors.
Airline-style eyeball vents - very effective cooling.
New hydraulic cylinder for the pilot's seat height adjustment.
No smoking ever.
Cowl plugs and cabin cover by Bruce's Custom Covers.

Remarks

This is a beautiful airplane, inside and out. We regularly get compliments wherever we go. It was featured as the opening shot of the Oshkosh 2012 highlights video.
