The 2007 Columbia 350: A Low-Time Bird with Unmatched G1000 Prowess

The Columbia 350, manufactured in 2007 by Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing, is a testament to innovation and performance in single-engine composite aircraft. In this blog post, we will delve into the aircraft’s history, explore its uses, and highlight its unique position as an excellent example of Low-Time G1000 technology. Furthermore, we’ll provide comprehensive details about an upcoming auction for one of the last aircraft to roll off the Columbia factory assembly line.

Columbia Aircraft: A Brief History

Before delving into the specifics of the Columbia 350, it’s essential to understand the background of Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing. Founded in 1994, Columbia emerged as a pioneer in designing and manufacturing high-performance, composite-bodied aircraft. The company’s dedication to innovation and quality positioned it as a key player in the general aviation industry.

The Columbia 350: Equipped with G1000 Technology

The Columbia 350 is renowned for its exceptional avionics suite, particularly the Garmin G1000 system. With Low-Time technology, this aircraft offers a unique blend of reliability and performance. Let’s explore the key features that make the Columbia 350 a standout example of this type:

Low-Time Advantage:

The showcased 2007 Columbia 350, with a mere 1090 total fly hours, has many hours of trouble-free flight ahead. This characteristic not only indicates the aircraft’s youthfulness but also ensures an extended life expectancy and reduced maintenance requirements.

Garmin G1000 Avionics Suite:

The Columbia 350 comes equipped with the Garmin G1000, a state-of-the-art avionics suite that integrates various essential flight instruments into a unified system. This advanced cockpit technology enhances situational awareness, efficiency, and overall safety.

Exceptional Value and Performance:

As one of the last aircraft produced by the Columbia factory before it was acquired by Cessna, the 2007 Columbia 350 boasts a unique value proposition. Its non-turbocharged engine design emphasizes simplicity and durability, providing a balance of speed and modern cross-country capabilities.

A Closer Look at N12XY

Prop: Hartzell Non-Heated Prop (Model PHC-L3YF-1RF/F7691)

The Hartzell non-heated prop on the 2007 Columbia 350, specifically the PHC-L3YF-1RF/F7691 model, is a testament to both efficiency and reliability. With a Serial Number (S/N) of PQ23B and a time since prop overhaul (SPOH) of 322 hours, this propeller ensures optimal performance during flight. The non-heated design enhances simplicity while maintaining the high standards of Hartzell’s engineering, contributing to the overall durability and functionality of this essential aircraft component.

Engine: Continental IO-550-N

Powering the Columbia 350 is the Continental IO-550-N engine, a robust and well-regarded powerplant in general aviation. With Serial Number (S/N) 689933 and a total time (TT) of 1090 hours, this engine has undergone an IRAN inspection 364 hours ago, performed meticulously by Ly-Con in December 2019. The IO-550-N is known for its reliability, smooth operation, and impressive performance, making it a fitting choice for a cross-country machine like the Columbia 350.

Airframe: N12XY – 2007 Columbia 350

The airframe of N12XY, a 2007 Columbia 350 with Serial Number (S/N) 42545, stands as a testament to the aircraft’s overall structural integrity. Having undergone a mere 1090 total fly hours, this airframe is in excellent condition and reflects the meticulous maintenance standards expected from Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing. Sold under Cessna company ownership, the airframe carries the legacy of one of the last aircraft produced by the original Columbia factory before Cessna’s acquisition.

Avionics: Garmin G1000 Suite with WAAS

At the heart of the Columbia 350’s cockpit lies the Garmin G1000 avionics suite, equipped with Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) capabilities. This advanced avionics system, comprised of GIA-63W NAV/COM/GPS units, GCU-476 Keypad Controller, GDU-1040 Primary Flight Display (PFD), GDU-1044 Multi-Function Display (MFD), and various other components, provides pilots with unparalleled situational awareness and navigation precision. The inclusion of Garmin GFC700 autopilot, Garmin ADSB, and a Terrain Awareness System (TAWS-B) further enhances safety and efficiency during flight.

Additional Features: Enhancements and Customizations

Beyond the core components, the 2007 Columbia 350 boasts a range of additional features that contribute to its appeal. Notable among these are the automatic climate control system with air conditioning, Precise Flight 4 Place Semi-Portable Oxygen, and Oregon Aero Adjustable Sport Seats with Lumbar Support. The electrically inflatable door seals, speed brakes (with a noted inoperable status), cargo net, Rosen Sunvisors, and the Vermier Throttle, prop, and mixture control add both convenience and customization to the overall flying experience. These features, combined with the aircraft’s unique history and design, make it a standout in the aviation market.

Exterior and Interior:

Radiant blue on the bottom with red and gold stripes and a white upper fuselage.

Two-tone tan interior with typical wear for a Columbia of this vintage on seats and touchpoints.
