We restored this aircraft to a condition that is genuinely better than factory new and almost certainly the highest specification on any Sukhoi.
Total time from new 431 hours, and only 81 hours since this complete overhaul. Time on zero-timed engine and new propeller also 81 hours. The work was conducted by the European expert in these aircraft and done to the highest standard. All service bulletins incorporated including the most recent strengthened rear wing mounting brackets.
Engine is to the highest possible specification – PF supercharger; high compression Barrett pistons; electronic ignition and delivering 428 corrected horsepower. Propeller is the latest MTV-9 with 260 cm diameter and the – 29 blades.
