Boasting a takeoff of less than 700 feet with a full weight of 6,750 pounds, plus a climb rate of 1,500 feet per minute, the engine generates up to 750 bhp at ISA +7C. An advanced 96-inch diameter Hartzell constant speed, reversible propeller is also included. Inside, passengers experience the convenience of Quest Aircraft’s renowned Garmin G1000 integrated avionics suite with three 10-inch displays. Optional Synthetic Vision Technology, S-Tec 55X autopilot, Artex C406 ELT, Garmin Stormscope, XM Infotainment package, high flotation tires, and a cargo pod, are among the features available.
