This 1980 Piper Turbo Arrow IV has been enthusiast-owned and lavished with care and no expense spared maintenance. The 200hp TSIO-360-FB engine has just been overhauled by GAMA at a cost of £41,259 plus VAT. The propeller has been overhauled by Brinkleys with a new hub and the invoice is in the file for £9,338. The engine break-in flights have been carried out initially by a licenced engineer and the aircraft is in annual to 31st October 2024. The FAA IFR checks are valid until 28th September 2024.
We would be pleased to show you through the logbooks. The aircraft is in regular service and hours will rise as it’s flown. The airframe has just 3167hrs TTAF which is well below fleet average of seven thousand plus hours. The engine and prop hours are maintenance run in hours only, so 10hrs SMOH and 10hrs SPOH.
The aircraft has been in South Africa with the current owners who have owned it since the late 90’s. They have owned many Piper aircraft and used the aircraft to commute between two warehouse locations in South Africa for their business. They looked at all the other options like the Mooney, and Cessna 182RG. On balance, the Turbo Arrow IV wins for them as it could operate at 10 USG per hour at 145kts true, while still using high-density altitude backcountry airstrips more easily than it’s competitors. The paint and interior are very smart and don’t let the aeroplane down in any way, the blue-grey leather seats are very comfortable. The avionics comprise of:
The aircraft has been hangared in its current ownership and shows great pride of ownership. We think it will provide excellent service for a new owner looking for a capable aircraft with peace of mind on all the major firewall forward items. The aircraft is available for demonstration by arrangement at Abbeyshrule Airfield (EIAB) and is both EU/UK VAT paid as it was located in NI on the date of Brexit.
