Today’s Top Pick is a 2004 Maule M-7-260C.

Maules stand out on the ramp for a number of reasons. Even people accustomed to spotting taildraggers might not recognize these Georgia-built backcountry airplanes. They do not look like Piper Super Cubs, Cessna 180s, or any of the usual suspects at your favorite grass strip. But for bush-flying enthusiasts and pilots whose travels take them regularly to short fields, Maules are objects of desire.

The M-7-260C for sale here combines Maule’s reputation for lifting heavy loads from short runways with a roomy, versatile cabin and cruising speeds that make longer trips more attractive. This rugged aircraft is at home whether traveling to paved runways or challenging off-airport destinations.

This 2004 Maule M-7-260C has 1,058 hours since new on the airframe, its 260 hp Lycoming IO-540 engine and Hartzell Scimitar propeller. The aircraft is equipped with 29-inch Alaskan Bushwheels, a Tundra Tailwheel assembly, and vortex generators.

The panel includes a Garmin GMA 340 audio panel, GNS 530W GPS/nav/com, SL40 nav/com, GTX 330 transponder, Electronics International CGR 30P engine monitor, dual Garmin G5s, GI-106 glide slope, S-TEC 30 autopilot with altitude hold, and dual USB ports.

Pilots looking for an over-the-counter bush airplane from a company that has specialized in backcountry flying for decades should consider this 2004 Maule M-7-260C, which is available for $320,000 on AircraftForSale.

You can arrange financing of the aircraft through FLYING Finance. For more information, email [email protected].
