N4468N Returns from Upgrade

Posted by on Jan 18, 2014 in News, Our Planes | 0 comments

68N-1

N4468N is back from a major upgrade to its avionics and interior.

The panel for N4468N was completely upgraded to include:

  • Aspen Evolution 2000 PFD/MFD system
  • STEC 55X autopilot
  • Garmin 330ES transponder with traffic
  • Garmin 430W GPS
  • XM weather
  • 406MHz ELT

The folks at Lancaster Avionics did a fantastic job, with great attention to detail.  For example, the AI on the PFD and backup vacuum driven AI are perfectly aligned.

The interior is completely refinished in rich leather.  Top Stitch Aviation did a great job with the carpet to headliner overhaul of the interior.

Feels like we have a brand new plane.  N4468N has always been a special plane, with its SMA Jet-A engine and 1,100 mile range.   It’s capability as a serious cross-country machine, that is “significant other friendly” just went up a few notches.
