The Garmin 10.6 inch PFD with GPS, ground terrain display, traffic and weather will make you gleeful. The Garmin autopilot holds altitude and tracks the GPS signal. The optional Garmin GMC 507 module makes the autopilot operations very simple.

We love the FITI ground adjustable propeller. The electrically adjustable FITI makes the prop easily adjustable by the pilot. Use the takeoff maximum climb setting or the top cruise speed in flight setting.
Adjustable rudder pedals help the 5' 4" pilot and the 6' 8" pilot to both fit in a Bristell.
