  • SkyView Engine Monitoring Module S/N 9733
  • SV-XPNDR-261 Mode S ES Class 1 Transponder S/N 13073
  • SV-ADSB-472 Dual Band ADS-B Traffic and Weather Receiver S/N 14974
  • Auto Pilot Panel, Horizontal Mounting S/N 6844
  • SV-KNOB-PANEL/H SkyView Knob Control Panel – Horizontal S/N 11000

  • AFS Control Module ECB S/N 546
  • EMSKIT-L4F (Kavlico), Lycoming/Continental/Superior, 4 Cylinder, Fuel Injected
  • FT-60 Red Cube, Fuel Flow Sensor Assembly (EI) S/N 211248
  • SV32 Servo, standard output arm S/N 13757
  • AV-17 Com Antenna
  • RAMI, DME Transponder Blade Antenna
  • USB Power Jack
  • EFIS WiFi Adapter
  • ACK E-04 406 ELT S/N 38678

We are planning the panel for IFR with redundancy. However, we are planning to add the 2nd EFIS, the audio panel and 2nd com, for the time being.
