Lucky for her! It looks like a very nice aircraft. How is she enjoying it?

I saw one of these at a small exhibition at my local field, FCM. I was impressed. It was very attractive (unlike -many- LSAs) and the performance numbers looked respectable.

Congratulations!

Have not taken delivery yet. It is owned by a local Doctor, who wanted a blue and white one, but took the first one available, which was red and white. He is waiting on his blue and white one to be assembled in Florida.

Our buying it saved him a delivery trip back to FL.

...a year later and Piper announced they are ending the marketing relationship with Czech Sport Aircraft.

They go on to say the separation is nothing to do with the aircraft, but a difference at the corporate level.

Must have figured out that their roots are in Pennsylvania after all.

I think their roots are in Brunei now...

Maybe putting their name on an airplane that has all the flight,engine and airframe instruments replaced by a non-TSO'd piece of junk called Dynon is a bad idea.

?

As someone whose future is "married" to airplanes equipped with a Dynon EFIS, I have to ask:
1. Which model EFIS?
2. Which options does it (they) include?
3. What features don't work as you'd like?

These are serious questions and I'm not just trying to defend Dynon. While I don't have any operational experience with them yet, I'm in the middle of installing a dual Model 180 EFIS system with the autopilot option in an RV-12 and the hardware appears to be well made mechanically.

I'd also be interested in knowing if it's a complete Dynon system, or if the Czechs engineered a system with multiple vendors equipment in play. Everything I've heard from the RV-12 community concerning Dynon is good, but it's an end-to-end Dynon system (including all the sensors) with Garmin radios providing the NAV information.

Good luck sorting things out and let me know if I can be any help. Drop by sometime, the coffee pot's on.
