Time-tested classic, flown for over 40 years and now modified, in its most luxurious version comes equipped with gorgeous leather seats, fully integrated dual Garmin G500 (dual VOR/LOC/GS/ADC, dual VHF radio) and air conditioning, offering top of the line safety, redundancy, parallelism in training and comfort in its price class. Flight data recorder (integrated with G500 and MVP-50P) and a cockpit voice recorder, indispensable for debriefing and analysis, as well as DME are also available on demand.
Powered by a four-cylinder, 210 hp air cooled Lycoming IO-390-А3А6 engine and a constant speed two-blade metal Hartzell HC–C2YR-1BFP/F 7894 propeller, it strikes a great balance between performance and fuel economy. Leaned properly, SOVA sips less than 35 l/h (9.2 USG/hour) of 100LL avgas, making long flights (over 4 hours, with a full tank) easy on your wallet.
