Due to the dual G5 installation coordinated with a Garmin 430W and Garmin 500 autopilot with autotrim, this aircraft is not only IFR capable but also counts as a technologically advanced aircraft (TAA) that can be used for completion of the commercial certificate requirements. It is primarily used for cross-country flights and instrument rating instruction. The aircraft has room for four adults with a separate baggage compartment. N6297J will carry 1014 pounds. Full fuel uses 300 pounds, leaving 714 pounds available for pilot, passengers, and baggage. Cruising speed at full weight and 75% power is approximately 130-140 miles per hour.
The interior has been recently redone, and the plane repainted.
