Freshly overhauled engine ($50k) with new updated crankcase. To be installed early April along with annual. All G1 and later Cirrus with Continental io360 original cases are prone to cracking near the #1 alternator mount until the design was updated. Given that is a well documented issue it was decided to spend the extra $12,000 on the updated case design instead of $5000 for replacement case.
This is a very sought after example because in 2003 Cirrus abandoned the vacuum system and adopted all electric avionics with dual alternators. At the same time it's still an early lightweight example for a great useful load. But late enough that you still have a couple more years before CAPS servicing.
Engine can be properly broken in before purchase or do so yourself. The avionics also offers a perfect platform to build off of. It features the "2.1" trim level including a 430 420 and an STEC 30 AP. Don't pay a premium for an outdated Avidyne PFD just to upgrade it anyway. Avidyne units fail and the warranty is expensive. Garmin just released their G500 upgrade package specifically for this airplane and Aspen offers great cost effective options as well. Panel mount an iPad in place of the MFD and display and log engine monitoring eMax (equipped) through a BlueMax bluetooth adapter.
Plane has been hangared since new and spent the vast majority of its life in the midwest owned by a meticulous commercial pilot. Paint and interior are in good shape. No hail or airframe repairs. Recent rubber gear pucks, control adjustments, and other items between last annual and recent service. Text first so that I can add contact then call anytime. 202-660-2771. Thank you!
