It’s hard to believe G-CDPV was bought just to fill a gap, as it’s a remarkably complete Aeroplane. The panel alone would leave most jaws on the floor, it would be very hard to replicate what is installed here:
It’s not just the panel in this Seneca II that is remarkable, the paint and leather interior are both way beyond what the average Seneca II on your local airport ramp would look like. There is nowhere you could show up, that G-CDPV wouldn’t be considered a smart aircraft.
The Seneca was imported into the UK from Holland in 2006 by a well-regarded dealer, and it’s obvious when you see the aircraft that the previous owners have had very high standards in her upkeep. There is a lot of flying you can do in a de-iced twin like the PA34, that you might be less willing to do in a PA32/A36/C210. Hardened private pilots are all happy flying in singles everywhere, but the folks in the back might well want a twin. A typical cruise profile would be 30”/2300 truing out at 157Kts. There is still a just case for the private owner twin, and G-CDPV is one of the very best of them. Available for viewing at Bagby (EGNG) and we can take a PX to make a seamless transition. A very hard Aeroplane to fault.
