N772SL had a complete $100,000 cockpit upgrade in 2012. Among other equipment, installed was a Garmin G600 PFD and MFD coupled to a Garmin touch screen WAAS certified G750 GPS/Nav/Comm/MFD both with complete electronic on‐board flight charts and maps. Also, installed was a new Garmin GDL 69 SiriusXM datalink receiver, which allows pilots to have in cockpit XM weather and allows the entire airplane to enjoy in‐flight XM radio. Also installed was a new Garmin GMA 35 remote audio panel and a Garmin GTX 33 remote Mode S XPDR, both of which are operational through the G750 or G600. Autopilot is a 3‐axis Bendix King M4D coupled to the GTN 750, which allows for both WAAS GPS coupled approach landings and traditional surface based device approach landings. N772SL is a highly capable aircraft, being able to complete flights even inthe most adverse flight conditions.
N772SL is also equipped with a complete wet bar, coffee and food entertainment area and an enclosed potty to make flights enjoyable for passengers.
In August 2016, N772SL was certified as a Part 135 Charter operations aircraft. This means the aircraft and its logbooks were thoroughly reviewed and inspected by the FAA and all requirements to charter the aircraft to the public for flight were met at that time. Additionally, in December 2016 N772SL had its annual A through D inspections along with a $9,000 Horizontal Stabilizer Spar AID upgrade and a $10,000.00 complete fuel tank reseal. Thus, N772SL's inspection status, logbooks and AID requirements are in impeccable condition.
