It's rare that we come across a single engine aircraft of this vintage that has been so lovingly restored and comprehensively equipped with the best avionics on the market. This aircraft is for the discerning VFR private pilot, or the single-engine IFR pilot who has safety & comfort front of mind.

This is one in ten thousand.

Fun fact: The aircraft is also quite 'famous' (for all the right reasons), having been chosen to be featured in an official Qantas 2018 Dreamliner TV advertisement and in Bob Tait's RPL Study Guide!
