The aircraft is equipped with LED interior, nav, strobe, beacon, and landing lights. The aircraft has STC’d wingtips with additional landing lights, bringing the total to 3 landing lights, 2 of which are equipped with a pulse system for daytime recognition. The aircraft’s exterior lights are high quality Whelen lights.
The front seats of the aircraft are equipped with car-style inertial real seatbelts for the shoulder harness portion.
Because of our location on the coast, the aircraft is also equipped with four FAA-approved life jackets.
The engine is a Lycoming O-320 rated at 160 hp. In July 2005, the engine was replaced with a re-manufactured engine.
The club is very active in flight instruction. The plane is used for both student instruction, and member rental. It rents for $110.00 / hour wet, and requires club membership, and a checkout by the club before renting.
