Alpi Pioneer 300 - UK built and based United Kingdom
Pioneer 300 £59,999
My Pioneer 300 registered as the standard model has all the features of a hawk except the solid wing coverings, namely the leather trim, stronger undercarriage, taller canopy, contoured instrument panel and under carriage doors. The interior is grey leather with blue fabric.
The aircraft was built in and first flown in summer 2012. It has approximately 330hrs in the log book for the engine, airframe and prop. The prop has just been overhauled at 300hrs (January 2018) by the manufacturer in Italy. The aircraft was permitted recently. The aircraft has full service and build history. It has full selection of manuals with all equipment. The aircraft has never been in an accident or had any damage. I have been the only pilot and owner. It has flown to Scotland, Ireland and Friedrichshafen (aero expo) with no problems. It cruises happily at 115-125 knots retuning an average of 18L/Hr. It can fly as slow as 60knts (8L/hr) and still be responsive and easy to fly. It can easily operate from short grass strips (it was based at a grass strip of 480m for several years) and has flown into many UK grass runways. It is a very forgiving plane with no vices.
Maintenance is very easy, and parts are metric and easy to obtain. There are service sheets for the work that has to be carried out. The most expensive item is the prop overhaul which I have done (£600).
It is a lovely plane to fly, fast, frugal and fun. I would quite happily have another.
