Ideal for those Fly Inns when your Aerie lies and bakes in the sun and your instruments reach :evil: Temperatures........
Let alone your seat covers which stick to you as you nestle in :evil:

Delivered my Whisper to Stuart at Paradise Beach today.
It is going in for its first 2 year old "Makeover"
New redesigned retro fit cowls with correct air scoop inlets to replace the duct tape affair,new adjustable inflight air inlet to control effective cooling,designer pedals to replace the rickety phase 1 designs,new seatbelts to replace stock Midas issue,and a new fibre glass baggage compartment that is actually capable of holding 20 kilos of luggage for those 5 day trips around the countryside with the softness,

Wach this space for designer pics :D
