City/Aerodrome  EGNG
Description  There will always be high wing fans, but an equal amount of pilots will want a low wing aircraft. When Piper went head to head with the Cessna 182 in 1964, it was a tough opponent to take on. The Piper Dakota family was the final hand that Piper played. They had changed the fuselage length, added windows, changed the wing, tried various prop and engine combinations to arrive at their penultimate PA-28 load lifter. Finding a late model Cessna 182 is not an easy task right now, but to find a Piper equivalent is an even bigger hurdle to clear.

Check on FlightAware, and you’ll see we are frequently at FL100 over the Irish Sea. Climb rates of 1,200 FPM can be expected after a brief take off run which is as always complemented by manual flaps. Fuel burn at high power cruise is about 12 USG per hour, with 72 USG total tank capacity giving it decent range. There are various cruise profiles listed, we tend to fly it 100 degrees rich of peak on the digital TIT gauge. Pilots used to flying the Piper PA32 prefer it as its just the right size but still has the same 6 cylinder gutsy performance they are used to.

G-HOLA has very little to fault, Airtime have done a wonderful bare metal respray in 2010 with a classic scheme of Matterhorn white, Ruby red metallic base and Silver Grey trim lines. Airtime also did the interior in black Andrew Muirhead Leather in the OEM style which is one of the nicest aircraft interiors you are going to come across. Carpets are Axminister in grey/black and there are certs for everything on file. The Engine was overhauled on 25th Sept 2008 and has only ran 313hrs SMOH. The prop has just been overhauled by Brinkleys in Sept 2019 and has less than 10hrs on it. The Airframe has a shade over 3,000hrs TT and presents as good as new generation Piper. G-HOLA is in ARC/annual through to Nov 2020. Even the yokes have been updated to the latest style, which makes the flying experience bang up to date. The empty weight is 1826lbs and this yields a useful load of 1074lbs which will suit many missions. If you have examined the cost of going to the USA to import a prime condition aircraft you will realize the significant costs involved. You could go to import one, get an ITN number, ferry it, pay the VAT and then get an Export C of A to end up in the same place. The starting number in the USA will be a lot higher than what you can buy G-HOLA for today. See:
