Columbia Aircrafts: Faster, Further & Higher

Luxury Aircraft: Aside from being widely publicized by various regarded publications, Columbia really does have the beef to live up to its reputable status. Columbia's proclamations of superiority are not mere marketing puffery. The firm has enough credibility as an aircraft manufacturer that testimonies from others within the industry and satisfied pilots worldwide heap praise aplenty toward Columbia.

The Columbia 400 is capable of cruising at 235 knots and up to 1,300 nm before refueling. There are no other certified piston singles currently on the market that can do better. The Columbia 400 and 350 both rate very favorably regarding safety issues, as each plane is significantly below the average rate of accidents incurred as reported by the National Transportation Safety Board. The aircrafts' rugged construction and design are favorable regarded by the Aircraft Owners Pilots Association (AOPA). NASA and FAA feel that the design of these planes provides optimal spin recovery and spin resistance at a level so high that a supplemental-recovery system is not necessary.

Another great safety feature is E-Vade, which is a deicing system that keeps ice from forming on the leading edges. Unlike other deicing mechanisms, E-Vade has no moving parts or fluids that need to be added. It is maintenance-free and uniquely efficient.

When a Columbia aircraft is purchased, four days of training are provided to ensure that a thorough know-how of the plane is established. Each Columbia aircraft is manufactured in strict compliance with Part 23, FAA certification regulations. It takes approximately 90 days to deliver a new plane to its buyer. The models also are certified to be heat resistant enough to allow pilots myriad color options to add individual flair and character. Even two-tone paint jobs are available.
