Pleasant surprises

There are some features I didn’t know N51667 had when we decided to buy it.

  • Brand new windshield. All of the plexiglass was replaced in the past year, with a STC’d thicker replacement. The cockpit is very quiet in cruise. I suspect the thicker plexi helps there.
  • Skytech starter. This is a lighter weight, better designed replacement for the original starter. This changes the Weight and Balance to bring useful load to 992.22 pounds from 983 pounds.
  • Gear mirror. A common STC modification is to add a mirror out on the right wing so the pilot can verify the main gear are down.
  • A corkscrew tie down kit, three lower quality passive headsets, and around half a case of Exxon Elite.
