Description  G-BONO is a 1977 model year Cessna 172N. The Cessna SID inspections were carried out, and internally it has been all treated with Adrox AV8 over ACF50.

The airframe has 6653hrs and is in ARC/Annual to Dec 2022. The O-320-H2AD engine has just had an SLI with Deltair where it was stripped and rebuilt with all new bearings, rings and test ran in a cell. This particular 160hp engine has the all-important T-Mod embodied and has 416hrs ran since its last overhaul. On the basis of calendar time with a 20% extension to its last overhaul date, the engine would be in time till 17th Sept 2024. With a custom maintenance program, the engine could run for flight training much longer than that to 2034, feel free to chat to us about this.

The panel has a Garmin GMA340 Audio Panel, Trig TY-96 Stack 8.33Khz radio and King KNS-80 RNAV/DME/Nav1 with King ILS indicator. The Nav/Com 2 is a Narco MK12D with a Cessna Nav indicator. There is a Garmin GTX-327 Mode C and King Skymap III (last updated 03/2020).
The aircraft benefits from refuelling steps, strobes, secondary seat stops, tow bar, all-wheel pants and lightweight Skytech starter.

The useful load is 722lbs when last weighed. The previous owner liked the John Player Specials F1 team colours and he had the aircraft painted in that livery. The interior was done at Elstree and it is really a charming place to be. Its very well rigged in flight and is fast en route.
