N7972C - 1975 Piper PA-28-181 Archer II


We're excited to offer this 180 horsepower Piper Archer for your use at John Wayne airport. This airplane includes Dual G5's, GNC355 touchscreen WAAS navigator and COM, coupled to the autopilot to provide GPS steering. KX155 with glideslope is included for practicing ground based navigation and ILS. It also features a GMA345 audio panel with 3D "home theater quality" sound and bluetooth streaming of audio and phone calls. Primary Access to aircraft at KSNA is by obtaining a badge. Special accommodations can be made for limited use cases. Please contact Matthew Curcio at 419-290-3773 for information on usage and access at John Wayne Airport. Thanks! Avionics Operation Notes: AUTOPILOT: to use GPS steering (coupled to the GNC355) select "GPSS" in the G5. To revert back to heading mode on the autopilot select "GPSS" again on the G5. To steer the autopilot using the KX155, turn the radio coupler knob directly under the pilots yoke to the desired mode. Note the KX155 only displays course information on the CDI directly next to it. GNC355: Pairing your phone to the GNC355 allows for flight plan information to be shared back and forth using Foreflight or Garmin Pilot. AUDIO PANEL: make sure to check the dip switches under the batteries on your A20 or Zulu headset to ensure stereo mode is enabled, otherwise 3D audio will not function properly. Contact Matthew Curcio with any questions - 419.290.3773
