About My Aircraft
This is a 1962 PA28-160 that was purchased as a retirement gift to myself in 2015. Has proven to be a great airplane, really appreciate having the external baggage door. Upgraded the avionics to include a Garmin audio panel, dual G5’s, GTN 430W, all interfaced to a GFC 500 autopilot. This package allowed the vacuum system to be removed. The G5’s provide comforting redundancy, the autopilot makes long cross country trips much easier. The airplane is not a speed demon, but very economical to operate, 105kts true at 8 gph.
