Got the bike; that is one plane that I have NOT flown and always wanted to. A real hot rod - in its last (production) iteration 350 HP aside, presurised 6 seater. 230 knots at 25,000 feet? Maybe...

You know your light aircraft. :)

It is indeed a hotrod with all the upgrades from aerostar and just completed 2 weeks ago all new avionics. This very plane was the one used on the cover of the original brochure.

My 05 GS. Major changes done, one day I'll get the gps and some extra lighting.

Created my own decal design out of reflective black, red and white material. Some design to make it my own.

There was a mob in the US that did performance mods and full refurbisment. I think they managed to get 238 knots max cruise out of it, maybe more. Saw a write up in Pilot Magazine (again from memory) some years ago.

In Oz they were required to have an additional rudder extension UNDER the fuselage to counter engine-out forces on take-off. Local authorities reckoned that if an early engine failure occurred there was not enough rudder without that extension to maintain direction without rolling (some other Pipers e.g. PA30/39 had this issue as well). Now I am talking some hot air here but without having flown the PA60 I think that this extension would have reduced the "dead man's curve" - the gap between red line and blue line after rotation that was so potentially nasty in the PA30/39.

Ummm - motorcycle content.... How did the GSA get into the picture???

Where did you get that foam backrest if you don't mind me asking?
