The Piper Warrior N161SM is in the avionics shop now getting an upgrade. At the scheduled completion on 12/11, it will have the following Garmin additions:
GMA340 Audio Panel
GNS430W GPS/NAV/COM – WAAS
GTX330ES Transponder with ADS-B Out
We will be moving the current KX170B #1 NAV/COM to the #2 position, so the aircraft will be equipped with dual glideslopes. This configuration will be almost identical to N724TM.
Also it will be wired with separate music input jacks for both front and rear seats.
In case you are wondering, the rental pricing will be adjusted January 1 to match the 172s.
N161SM has come a long way since we acquired it a couple of years ago. Please tell our customers and let’s get some IFR students in this aircraft.
