It has been a long process but 7LM is new (or at least rebuilt) from the firewall forward.
This makes for a great travelling machine. Flight plan for 145 kts TAS on 13.5 gallons per hour and haul 750 lbs of people and stuff 500+ miles. Need longer legs? No problem, trade some weight for up to 22 more gallons of fuel and dial it back a bit you can go a long way!
Throw some camping gear in and enjoy nearby campgrounds, head to a fly-in, or plan on Oshkosh!
It made a great way to enjoy AOPA Indy Regional Fly-in without having to join the flying circus on final approach Saturday morning!
