F-6 Hawker Hunter

A remarkably complete aircraft minus the engine and jet pipe. she has a full suite of instruments as well as the ejection seat and gunsight.

Needs to go fairly soon hence the asking price of only £6K. Buyer collects.

More pictures available here.

 

 

L-29 Delfin

This L-29 is in very good working order. It has flown regularly and recently.

The engine is almost new at approx 50 hours.

In maintenance right now having its annual service. Will be completed end of next week.

It has a complete set of new hydraulic and fuel pipes.

Tyres are in v good condition with little wear.

Flight instruments are standard with the following additions.

2 x VHF radio fit; Garmin 250XL radio/ GPS and Bendix King NAV/ Com.ILS fit.

Dynon D6 AHARS horizon/compass. New 5 point seat harness in each cockpit.

Ejection seats are disabled i.a.w CAA modification.

Newly repainted. Excellent finish.

Maintained by RAF engineering.

It is on UK CAA "permit to fly" regulations.

Can be flown by PPL holder, with suitable training.

Training can be provided in house by qualified instructors. Instructors are CAA approved to instruct on type. They are current flying instructors with RAF fast jet back ground.

Instruction costs and flying costs are not included in the airframe price.

 

L-29 Delfin

Ideal for a US racer. ready to be shipped.

RA01611. It is currently in pieces but has a very interesting colour scheme.

The cockpit and forwards has been used on another aircraft, but there is a replacement front cockpit that can be attached.

Therefore the paint scheme would have to be reblended to regain its original Tiger look!

The engine has some corrosion and is removed from the aircraft at the moment.

Whether this would make a gate guard or would fly again would be "customer" dependant.

It is still on the Russian register. The change process is straight forward and takes around 1 week.

Available now.

This aircraft can be transported by road and we have the necessary means to do that for the customer. Again at their expense.

I also have a large stock of spare parts that may be offered either in its entirety or sold by individual parts as required.

Spares are not part of the aircraft sale and would be negotiated separately.

 

Hunter T-64

2 X Hawker Hunter T-64`s one flown last year but now ready to road transport , second one was going to be a spares source but it was decided too good to break , also ready to road transport. Both are ex Swedish air Force modified by Hawkers to current T spec. Located in France. Desirable spec and very rare.

Hunter T-7

Two Hawker Hunter T-7`s for restoration. (library picture). Both basically complete with some engine hours left with paperwork. Wings off ready to ship anywhere. Currently located outside the UK. More details to follow soon.

 

Pembroke

Our Pembroke is XF 799 and was one of the last 2 60 Squadron aircraft that were involved in "Operation HALLMARK" (Google it). The Pem is offered as a package with an ex-Belgian MK-51 parts aircraft. In addition, there is a 40 foot container (9.5 foot high top) filled with mostly new components and a 20 foot trailer with used stuff to include engines, landing gear, brakes, control surfaces, cowlings, propeller (and other ECU parts).

Entire package is $60,000.

 

Gnat

This is the Gnat that we built 15 years ago at the cost (then) of $650,000. I know that the CAA won't let an American registered and modified Gnat fly in UK skies, but she is beautiful! After we return her to Denver and complete the FAA approved AAIP (Approved Aircraft Inspection Program) she will be placed for sale. She will come with a complete set of spares including an extra engine, brakes, tires, etc.

Baby Great Lakes

 

Baby Great Lakes Aerobatic Bi-plane

Fantastic little airplane for sale. It is aerobatic and flies beautifully. Built in 1984 by Robert Shindler - a real pro - costing a considerable amount of money. The plane is currently in the USA and that is why it is going relatively cheap as I have been offered a share in another aircraft. I will help as much as I can with all shipping and importation in to the UK. It is real easy.

This aircraft has about 150 hours total time on the airframe and Continental 75 engine since complete overhaul/inspection. Comes with a fresh Inspection certificate and a new spinner (never fitted). There is no electrical system so it has to be propped but a drill type starter can be alternatively purchased for this if you prefer. As for performance, stall speed is approximately 55mph. Power off, it will take off in approximately 5 seconds and will land in 500 feet (ground roll). The plane burns approximately 4-4.5 gallons per hour and holds 12.5 gallons and cruises at 110-115 MPH. She will climb at 2000ft/min. She's ready to Fly!

Best quick offer and payment will secure as this is just the cheapest way you can fly and own your own aircraft! Similar planes in England would be fetching around the £20,000+ figure.

£15,000 - SOLD
