Interior / Exterior
Excellent paint and interior. 2006
Painted the belly a metallic gray 2019 to update the design. The all-white base was getting boring.
I have owned 6Y for 18 years and perfected its flying characteristics.
New style wingtips improve the slow flight characteristic- the stall is 5 kts lower at 68 kts with full fuel. Slow flight is stable and the landing touch-downs are softer. With 0 fuel in the wings and 20 gals in the header tank, It stalled at 61-62 kts in the landing configuration. It lands easier than my Mooney Rocket. Just 10 kts faster on approach.
It doesn't seem to want to stall w/ gear up and full flaps. I tried several times.
89 gals total. 34 ea. wing, 21 gals in the header tank.
