EI-CMT is no ordinary 1978 Piper Seneca II. It has been upgraded with an Aspen Evolution 1500 MAX. This full-feature glass panel is easy to use, incredibly capable and will make your VFR or IFR flights much more enjoyable. These PFD/MFD screens have been fitted in recent months, are still under warranty, and offer a photo sharp “six pack” dual screen replacement. An effective glass cockpit was vital to the role EI-CMT was fulfilling - teaching the next generation of airline and business jet pilots to fly IFR procedures.
We will happily send a soft copy of the time life component sheet by email. The main numbers from it are 12225hrs TTAF, 1969hrs SMOH in Sept 2017 on the left engine, and 1473hrs SMOH in August 2018 on the right engine. Both props have 678hrs since fitment in Feb 2021 and the engines have had a strip and rebuild at that time. Under Irish regulations, the engines can run to 2800hrs for flight training giving them the potential of 800 plus hours, and we think given their recent strip and rebuild it will be possible to achieve that.
The beauty of the Seneca is it can be operated below 2 tonnes, making for no Eurocontrol airways charges on IFR flights. The undercarriage on CMT was subject to a complete strip, and inspect repair as necessary costing over €25,000 which really stands to the aircraft. This aircraft was the flight school favourite of the 3 Piper Seneca’s they operated, perhaps it is the two-blade props and light 3171lbs basic empty weight. If you had to use a short grass strip CMT has proven itself to be well up to the job. The aircraft was repainted in 2017 in two-pack paint with a black base colour, white top with accent striping. The registration is a decal which makes it easy if you plan to change it over. The interior was updated in the past ten years with six-place black leather seats piped in red. The carpets are black, with grey and black side walls and there is a six-place intercom fitted. Any Seneca without the Club Seating and Long Range Fuel is instantly less valuable but CMT has these options fitted. The avionics suite is as follows:
With counter-rotating props, there is no critical engine in an engine-out emergency making the Seneca II suitable for training and safer for lower-time private pilots. The Seneca II fulfils a role just above the Duchess/Seminole/Cougar/
