This aircraft has been converted to install a Garrett/Honeywell TFE731-3 turbofan engine.
Interior / Exterior
The exterior is a two-tone light and medium blue camouflage with light gray belly.
The cockpits have been lightly restored with medium gray seats and panels.
The Saphir 5 APU, ram air turbine, and other components made redundant by the conversion were removed, reducing the basic empty weight of the aircraft by over 300 pounds. Our comprehensive flight test program has revealed increases in rate of climb and cruise speed and decreases in spool-up time and fuel consumption.
