This is the lowest hour engine and airframe combination Cardinal on the market today. Only 2265 hours on the airframe and 404 hours on the engine. Fully upgraded with newer paint, leather interior, Garmin avionics and autopilot. IFR rated and current. No damage history. All logs since new. Previously owned by an airline pilot. Well maintained airplane. I had long cross country flights in this plane. Flies great. It is hard to find all these points in a Cardinal. Please take time to watch the full video of this plane to learn the details of the plane and see it in flight. Please also watch our full Cardinal review video with over 53,000 views on our YouTube Channel to learn everything about the Cardinals. Elegant, newer, 3 tone paint. The metallic gold and pearl white paint on this plane are expensive paint used only for luxury items. Usually it costs over $20,000 to paint a plane with these high end colors. Updated interior with leather seats. Pilot seat has 3 way adjustment so you can adjust it exactly to fit you. Seats were comfortable for our long trips. All panels are in very clean condition. New carpet compliments the interior color and condition. Baggage door cover has a minor piece missing as I show in the video. Clear windshield and all side windows, having been replaced recently. Rear glass is a little foggy. We have a new glass for it which goes with the plane. I like the avionic panel. Overall it is very clean and modern. All upgrades are useful. Digital audio panel has many features including phone calls. Garmin 530 WAAS and 430 WAAS - GPS NAV COMM units. They are connected to HSI and CDI so you have a backup for everything. Great IFR suite. Quite comfortable to fly in IFR conditions. Garmin units also display traffic. Garmin 560 touchscreen navigator is a nice backup unit with XM connected. The Garmin 330ES transponder has ADS-B out. So you can fly in any airspace and go to any airport without restrictions. Plane has a digital engine monitor. They are very helpful to see the details of the engine. You can save fuel, get long life from your engine and troubleshoot anomalies when you have an engine monitor. Plane has a digital RPM gauge. Century IIB autopilot is a good tool to have, especially in long flights or IMC conditions. It is not top of the line but a decent autopilot. All these are upgraded and none come from the factory. Cost is about $46,000 for those installations. 180HP Lycoming Engine has only 404 hours SMOH. Compressions are 70/70/71/72. We did necessary maintenance including a new prop governor. Engine starts right up and runs great. Had long night flights with no concerns. This Lycoming O-360 parallel valve engine has a great reputation for reliability, low maintenance and longevity. Cessna Cardinal is one the most spacious, easy to fly, 4 place airplanes compared with similar planes. Low maintenance costs and insurance is also very low because of its reliability. Cardinal has the best views with large, wide windows in the cabin. In summary this plane has very low hours, good ownership history, is a great flying plane with beautiful, newer paint and interior, Garmin avionics, autopilot, clean history and all logs. It is hard to find any plane with all these unless you buy a much newer plane. Please watch the full video of the plane to see all details and how it flies.
