1988 Piper Saratoga SP:
This beautiful LOW-time Piper Saratoga SP is one of a very few single-engine airplanes to be equipped and certified to fly VNAV and precision LPV approaches! (More info below). This aircraft has received meticulous care from its owner who has kept it hangared during his 10 years of ownership.
Here is a truly great opportunity to purchase and own a fully-equipped, low-time Saratoga SP in an all-around wonderful condition at a great price! It has been reduced below its Vref and Aircraft Blue Book valuations. There are no gimmicks. The owner simply does not have the need to fly any longer.
Compare and you will find older Saratoga SP´s with greater airframe and engine times plus less avionics selling at near or above this asking price!
So, hurry! This asking price will increase after the completion of its upcoming annual inspection.

About LPV Approaches (Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance):
This Saratoga SP is equipped and certified to fly VNAV and precision LPV approaches!
"LPV" is a new category of approach that uses the WAAS signal and provides vertical guidance. You can fly LPV with WAAS avionics approved for LPV approaches. WAAS avionics do not automatically mean that you can fly the LPV minima line. WAAS approaches do not require any special ground equipment at the destination airport‚Äîno localizer or glide slope transmitters are necessary. To fly an LPV approach, you must have WAAS Class 3 avionics certified to TSO-C145a or TSO-C146A, and installed IAW AC 20-138A.
The FAA´s SatNav News reports that the number of U.S. LPV approaches continues to grow at an accelerated pace.
Since mid-summer, 169 new LPVs have been published, including 44 in July, 26 in August, 99 in September, and 29 in October, bringing the total to 292. About three hundred more should be added in the next fiscal year. LPV approach ceiling minimums are generally 250 feet, with visibility minimums of 3/4 or 1/2 mile, depending upon runway lighting and markings.
