Scott Severen of Indus Aviation took me through a bunch of upgrades to its T211 Thorpedo — the first U.S. SLSA to earn ASTM certification. *** Among the numerous enhancements include: *** curved glare shield *** numerous instrument panel changes including a stall warning light and horn *** digital compass *** GA-style circuit breakers *** cabin heater that “actually works!” says Scott. *** removed side panels to give more effective cockpit room *** A locking canopy has been added, as well as lumbar-contoured seats which have three inches more supine inclination, a contoured stick with a palm rest and adjustable headrests. I sat in the Thorpedo and found it very comfortable. *** The IFR-equipped (for training) Thorpedo is meant as a flight school airplane. *** Dang nice paint job too!
