Pioneer 400 £145,000

The opportunity has come to purchase my immaculate Alpi Pioneer 400.

This aircraft is a true 4 seat fun light sports aircraft which combines an 120knt cruise with fabulous short field performance and great visibility. With an excellent glass avionics package, a great specification, low engine and extremely low propeller hours, this is an outstanding aircraft for the discerning pilot.

The Pioneer 400 is a low wing monoplane, with a trapezoidal plan wing that has sweep only on the trailing edge and winglets at its tips. The wing structure is wooden with a single box-spar and is covered with pre-preg carbon fibre. Ailerons occupy about half the span; inboard, slotted flaps fill the rest. Both ailerons and flaps are fabric covered.

The fuselage and empennage have a wooden structure and carbon fibre skin. The engine is 73.5 kW (100 hp) Rotax 912iS flat-four, driving a variable pitch propeller. The cabin is over the wings, with two pairs of side-by-side seats. Entry is by two upward-opening doors and there is a baggage space behind the rear seats. At the rear the vertical surfaces are straight-edged and swept, with a long dorsal strake. The horizontal surfaces are approximately trapezoidal in plan, with an unswept leading edge. Both the rudder and elevators are fabric covered. The rudder is balanced and both it and the port elevator carry trim tabs.
The Pioneer has retractable tricycle landing gear though the nose-wheel remains partially exposed when retracted.
