Yes if the factory builds it :twisted:
But you can also buy a kit and DIY.

Folks, I have flown the Pipers, the Cessna's, the Jab 430 and now the C912S. let this be said; this 912 gets you off the ground without ANY fear! a Jab needs runway, for both take off and landing. so go-around, if ever needed (needed it twice in Etosha) needs runway left and a 912S needs meters left.

secondly, I just flew in terrible weather at 16h00 and how more smooth I found this 912!

I am sorry, there is no comparison - I stick to this 912S

Great forum. Good to read the impressions and then compare with the facts. There is no substitute for experience and we rookies must tap into that
