THE CIRRUS OF ITS DAY
After the flight I chatted with Steve and found out more about the business. It is irrefutable that brand new four-seat tourers are quite expensive, and with the TB-10 - which Steve describes as ‘the Cirrus of its day’ - you have a well-designed, sturdily made ‘semi-complex’ (i.e. fixed gear but CS prop) aircraft that is safe and easy to fly and can be quite easily refurbished to a highspecification. Steve is used to working in hi-tech industries (such as aerospace and nano technologies) and he is clearly the sort of man that expects things to be “done right”. He’s so confident that the refurbed TB-10S offered by Cavendish Aviation are done right that the price includes a generous after-sales ‘care package’ that includes the first year’s maintenance (labour only) and the second annual, ensuring prospective purchasers can reasonably expect no big (and expensive) surprises.
