Detailed Description

1979 PIPER TURBO DAKOTA
Frequently-flown (120+ hrs/year) by commercial & military pilots in a professionally-run partnership using detailed aircraft Standard Operating Procedures, Checklists, and Checkout documents (included with purchase).  Stable and capable turbocharged IFR platform with WAAS GPS.  Well-upgraded engine with automatic wastegate, intercooler, GAMInjectors, graphic engine monitor, and smooth-running 3-blade propeller.  Easy to fly and cheap to insure; 200hp and fixed gear means no endorsements required; neither high performance nor complex.

Complete original logs since new, including fully digitized & searchable copies.    Thorough annual inspections performed by five separate shops over the last six years to ensure multiple independent reviews, plus Savvy Aviation Maintenance subscription since 2019.  All inspections are current and the aircraft is currently flying, with over 40 hours in the last two months.  Owned by an aerospace engineer and military pilot with exacting attention to operations and maintenance.

See "Documents" for details on Inspections, Equipment, STCs, and SOPs.
