Comp Air 7SL Turbine

A true "pilot's airplane", the Comp Air 7 Turbine caters to pilots looking for an airplane that combines raw performance with rugged utility. If you possess a genuine "thirst for thrust", this is the airplane for you. This is the airplane for pilots who want to play hard, and yet who also want to be able to take grandma and the kids for a pleasant cross-country flight. The long nose says it all. This is an airplane that will easily leave the crowd far behind. The powerful, rugged, Czech-built Walter 601 turbine engine swings a massive three-blade AVIA propeller. Designed originally for the brutal conditions of commercial operations in Siberia and the Russian bush, the Walter is a powerplant that's built to last, with minimal maintenance. And the fact that the Walter turboprop easily produces the equivalent of 657 HP turns the Comp Air 7 into an airplane with capabilities that thrill fighter pilots, airline captains, and other airborne "power junkies". When you want to have fun, the sporty handling and impressive performance capability of the Comp Air 7 Turbine is what you're looking for.
