Seats 4
Interior Rating 8
Interior Description Great interior - black with studs on the panels. Beige seats with red piping. Headliner reasonable (not perfect). Great condition interior
Exterior Rating 7
Exterior Description Generally very good. Fabric in good condition as it's been hangared and out of the sun. A few rashes - leading edge of port wing has a ding and a little paint is flaking here and there but overall very good for age.
Observed Performance I cruise at 120MPH at 2350 RPM nearly always. You can go higher to 2400+ but I like to keep the engine nice and smooth. If you get her on-plane at 2350 and use the mixture right, you can use the CHT/EGT to even out her cylinders and she'll purr-along happily. Takeoff is easy without flaps and landing I often use one click (although full-flaps is great too, especially for soft-field.). All-in a great performer.

KTF (Katie) is an excellent aircraft that I am offering for sale. Her condition and specs are above and she can be viewed by appointment. I have owned her since 2007 and have flown her to the Yukon and back (from CYSN) as well as around Ontario. She is scheduled to have her annual in May 2019 and this is included in the price. Note that this aircraft is owned by a Canadian corporation and as such, the price is subject to HST - meaning add 13% to the price (unless you are also a corporation in which case, you'll understand the advantage of this). I am not in a panic to sell Katie - honestly, the reason for this offering is that I can not necessarily fly her much in the next while due to family commitments - meaning she'll sit. As such, it would be best if I can find her a great new custodian. Katie lives in a heated hangar with her AME in Niagara. She's been very well maintained. Feel free to contact me by email for more. Also worth noting, this aircraft is owned by the same company that owns this website.
