This aircraft isn't just about spending £675k; it's about reallocating funds into a new class of asset. When it's time to move on from a prime-condition aircraft like this you simply hand over the keys. Well bought aircraft, have always been the same.
This 2010 model boasts a mere 961 hours total time, with only 434 hours on the 350hp Lycoming engine, equipped with dual turbochargers and intercoolers, which was overhauled in 2019. The propeller underwent overhaul during the last annual inspection in July 2023, accumulating just 63 hours since.
The Matrix stands as the non-pressurized variant of the esteemed PA46 line, perfectly suited for the purpose it has been utilized for by its current owners. Its forte lies in rapid 2-300nm jaunts across the UK and Northern Europe. FlightAware data for G-EXPO highlights its prowess in these types of trips.

The cabin is thoughtfully appointed with a Relief Tube, 6x Oxygen Masks, individual lighting, air vents, overhead oxygen ports, cup holders, headset jacks and window blinds. The 50 cubic foot oxygen system, serviced externally, empowers the Matrix to reach its service ceiling of FL250, ideal for soaring above inclement weather.
