Just weighed N914VA the other day. 1246 lbs. empty, w/o paint. Empty C.G came out at 81.38".

Will reweigh after paint next month.

Any idea what was added for the extra weight from Van's #?

I don't know if it would account for all of the difference, but Garmin G3X components are a bit heavier than Skyview.

It's most probably the Garmin panel. It's pretty complete with dual G3X's, GTN750, GMA 240 audio panel, GMC 307 AP controller, a GTR200R comm, GDL 39, remote GTX 330 xpndr, and all the attendant modules that go with supporting these devices. And there are a bunch of them.

Plus I have good solid carpet in the front an rear from Flightline Interiors along with leather seats and armrests.

It all adds up. I will reweigh it after paint and see where we are then.

Yeah Scott. A big box arrived unannounced and voila! A leather interior.

Apparently, it's been a closely guarded secret, but I knew it would have to come out sometime.
