Pipistrel Virus by Paul Christian
Regrettably my much-loved Virus is up for sale as we are building a new house and need the dollars. I am the 2nd owner and have owned since Sept 2016 and am astounded the way it flies every time I take to the skies. Has many factory options and flies like a dream. uses around 14L/hr of 91 UL fuel at 120 kts with the variable pitch propeller. VNE 135 kts. Fantastic cross-country cruiser with autopilot to take off the workload on those long flights. 100 litres if fuel give a possible range of 800 NM with res. With a glide ratio of 24/1 it makes it incredible safe AC, yet you can land very short and come in very steep with airbrakes. Gliding and slope soaring are delightful experiences in the quiet. Landing distance is 200-300 metres without any special skills. Take-off is 200-400 metres depending on loading and density altitude. Full ab-initio training at Toogoolawah QLD included in the advertised price. Price is negotiable and obviously less than this if you don't need training. I am a RA AUS instructor. Will be delivered with a fresh annual. Can deliver anywhere in Australia. I waited years to find this AC when wanting to purchase as owners practically never part with them, so call today to secure this amazing aircraft.
