Read the "remarkable 205" article online for more general specs. 

Most recent annual completed 13 February 2022 overseen by Savvy Mx Program; no squawks noted, compressions were 74/75/75/77, all spark plugs replaced. Previous annual, January 2021, completed by Don Maxwell to include rigging. Interior was completely refurbished during the 2021 annual and included all new interior plastics wrapped in ultra leather to match the exterior. The yokes and glare shield were done by Aerocomfort in San Antonio. The seats were done in the same chocolate leather with a Porsche 911 style of the same vintage. 

The paint was done by Cheyenne Airmotive in 2002 with a moondust base, oak brown striping, and a medium green acry-glo paint. 

The avionics were redone in 2015 and includes the large Avidyne 540 FMS/GPS/NAV/COM, tied to the Aspen 1000 PFD with GPSS steering, synthetic vision, wind aloft info, TAS, OAT, etc. connected to the BendixKing KAP 150 Autopilot. This setup allows you to fly coupled RNAV and ILS approaches, GPSS, fly a heading, altitude hold, etc. Additionally equipped with the Avidyne AMX 240 audio panel with Bluetooth, and Avidyne APX 340 transponder with ADS-B in/out capabilities. It also has a JPI EDM 711 Primary which gives you all EGT's, CHT's, oil temp, etc. with CHT and oil temp being primary. 

The FAR 91.411 and 91.413's are in compliance and are due 11/30/2022. 

This aircraft has 3724 TT, 651 SMOH done in 2009 by Western Skyways (2000hr recommended tbo), 651 SMOH on the 3-blade Hartzell top prop conversion, and the oil has been changed every 30-40 hours with Philips XC20w50, camguard, champion spin on filter, and oil analysis with Blackstone Laboratories. 

Minor damage history (incident) in 1992 on the takeoff roll when the pilot struck a snow bank due to a frozen brake. 

Sale includes matching Bruce's canopy cover, n-numbered chocks, and n-number cowl plugs. 

Asking $185,000, previous individual under contract could not get financing to go through.
Message if you are interested and/or need any additional information. 
We had not planned to part with this amazing aircraft so soon, but given some unforeseen health issues, I am unable to fly for several months and can't bear to see it sit. Hope it brings the next owner as much pride and joy as it brought me.

Remarks

Personal plane that we have flown for 100 hours in the past 13 months. 

This plane has treated my family and I extremely well, and we were not planning to part from it so soon.  Unfortunately, we need to let it go, and hope it finds another amazing family to join.
