Prepared For: DG Owner COMMENTS N714MX has high airframe time and has some damage history however overall the aircraft is in exceptionally good condition. It LOOKS great. The interior is exceptional and the S-tec AP is a real plus along with XM weather and a CD/Phone jack intercom system. The interior is exceptionally nice in a rugged but handsome fabric. Glass is good, paint is not new but is very nice. Exhaust stacks, STOL, VG"s, Speed Kit and a lot of extras particular to the 185 are present. RETAIL PERCENT CHANGE Change Last Quarter:
