I'm tossing around the idea of selling my G3 SR 22 GTS NA non FIKI plane to upgrade to a G5 22T FIKI setup.
This plane has about everything a Cirrus can have other than FIKI and a turbo. Great A/C.
Annual was done in March. Just over 1600 hours of Hobbs time. No compressions below 60lbs. All cylinders were borescoped at annual and looked great. #3 was replaced last year.
I bought this plane early summer of last year and have put around 200 hours on it. SCS did new G5 seat foams and seat covers for me last year. What a huge upgrade over the G3 setup.
I'm about to take on a partner which gives us the opportunity to upgrade to a turbo FIKI plane if there is a place for my current plane. I haven't settled on a price yet, but it will be fair and less than anything else I have seen on the market at present. If anyone is interested shoot me a private message. We can discuss over the phone.
I can get some more photos. Don't have many currently.
I've had several phone calls and PMs regarding a price and just questions about the plane in general. I think I've been a bit in denial. Naming a price is facing the reality of selling my girl. My wife and I have loved this plane. She was in our engagement and wedding photos. We have been all across the country in her. Reality sets in when one names a price...
Robbie, Is that 3 seatbelts in the back seat? I didn't think it was possible to upgrade older planes to the 3 person backseat? I've got a G2, would love to find out if this is possible. Can I ask what the cost of the interior upgrade was?
2012 was first year for 3 seats in the back, 1 year before G5
I have close to 15k in the interior, but that includes repairing the plastic panels that get sticky in our planes (glare shield, etc.)
That's an unbelievable deal. Im sure you'll close soon.
Robbie are you depicting minor paint/cosmetic damage in photos 4,5 & 9?
Yes, there is some wear/pitting to the clear coat on the leading edges due to flying in heavy rain. This is not present on the left wing due to a repaint secondary to a scratch by the FBO where I used to store the plane.
The upper cowl picture is to depict a small area where the clear has chipped, and the co-pilot area at the bottom of the door opening shows a chip. I'm not sure how this occurred.
good for you showing those items up front!
