Project spotted in Aus

Recommended Posts

Spotted this project for sale in Australia on FB

"For those who know about this aircraft, you’ll appreciate the rarity and associated history of this model. Reportedly only about 20 of these kits have been completed to flight, and perfect for pylon racing. This one is not far off flying - airframe has been certified, avionics are there - mainly needs paint.... and an engine 🙂 The ‘extras’ include boxes of photos of the build to date, the fabricated wings, and various tools and spares (about 30 years worth) It comes on it’s custom made trailer for transport (not currently registered, but has been). Price is negotiable, and more details can be provided as required."

$12,000 AUD

That would be a fun airplane.  "pylon racer"?  I don't know about that but it would be fun to own.  People would certainly walk out of the FBO to see one.  Price seems fair.  The link comes up "unavailable" so maybe someone has already grabbed it.

Early wing design too by the look of it. Wow, a rare bird indeed!

Seems to be still available - probably need to be a member of the group it's posted in.  They don't seem to be particularly fast, so racer does seem a stretch

They mention it has the metal wing design.

Given the CASA rules, it would probably be difficult to get the authority to do your own maintenance if you picked this up and completed it down here in Aus.
