Glasair II FT
Reluctantly For Sale -
(In May, after visiting the Noah's Ark Exhibit)


$49,500 USD
(Would prefer finding an airplane partner at the Deer Valley Airport tho.)


Particulars:


Description:

This is a Glasair amateur build aircraft. It's essentially a Glasair II, but we call it a Glasair "One and One-Half" because it started out as a Glasair One and turned into a Glasair Two. (It has the GI wing, horizontal stab and cowl but the better GII fuselage, firewall, rudder.) My airplane partner and I built it, maintain it and have been blessed to fly it over the past 23 years. We've accumulated 3900 hours flying it over almost all the lower 48 states in all sorts of weather. (Well, not in hail. But we have seen 1/2 inch of mixed ice.) It's stood the test of time — which is what you want in an "experimental" airplane. (And we continually modify it to make it even better and more reliable. For example, recently we had custom steel bushings made for the nose gear to stop them from wearing out every 2000 hours!) As my airplane partner is now more than 80 years old, it's time to find a good home for her baby.

So, all planes have squawks, right? In the interest of openness, here are some things that we know aren't perfect.
