My airplane is tied down outside, summer and winter. Although the wings are covered with a fitted tarp that is easy to remove, the rest of the airplane can be snowed in. Then it must be shoveled out.
As you can see, this is a single engine, four seat, high wing aircraft, colored white, red, and black. It is just wide enough to be comfortable; the back seat has plenty of leg room. Fully fueled, it can carry 680 lbs. (308 kg) of passengers and luggage for 4.5 hours at an average speed of 95 knots (110 mph, 175 kph). I have flown this airplane across the US six times and once to Alaska.
I am an instrument rated, commercial pilot and flight instructor, with more than 2700 hours experience
