The Ovation 2 is one of the fastest single
engine, normally aspirated, piston powered
aircraft available today.
The secret to its improvement is in McCauley
Propeller's new, super thin, two-blade
propeller, available only on the Ovation2.
This enhancement enables a 6 knots (TAS)
increase in cruise speed over its
predecessor or 192 KTAS at 8,000 feet, with
a weight savings of 12 pounds. Cambered on
both front and rear surfaces, the high-tech
airfoil is remarkably efficient. Combined
with the efficient and reliable TCM IO-550-G
engine, there is an excellent mid-teen
cruise performance at altitudes normally
reserved for turbocharged aircraft.
Since 2003, the Ovation2 DX has moved to a
complete Garmin avionics stack including the
award winning GNS530/GNS430 combo, the GDL49
Nexrad Uplink, the GTX 330 Mode "S"
Transponder, and the premium Bendix King
KFC225 Autopilot/Flight Director as
2004, the Ovation2 GX has been introduced

55X Autopilot roll and pitch.
The Ovation2 DX or GX includes supple
