Bought 1 year ago in a 2 man private partnership, it was flying fine but had it professionally re-built. Tried to turn it into a Boeing, but in the meantime we both ended up with Cessna’s. Eish.

The plane is fast; it has high-speed wings and cruises at 115mph. It has a Rotax 912 Xtra 95hp so there’s plenty HP. It comes with a new set of piston rings worth R7000 that can be installed free of charge by Axella Aviation should you wish. The ring install isn’t needed now.

Fresh ATF and all paperwork is in order.

The frame was sent to the factory in Petit where the fuselage was put into the jig and was cut just behind the cabin and the aft section was thrown away. A complete updated new tail section was fitted including elevators, rudders and all the other associated goodies. 500kg MTOW.

This is what was done by Axella Aviation since:

• Purchase and fit new MGL Efis Mini
• Purchase and fit RDAC engine monitor
• Remove old fuel-flow and engine monitor instruments, fresh wiring and plumbing with RDAC for EFiS
• New oil lines
• Purchase and fit new adjustable pitch 68-inch Whirlwind 3-blade propeller
• Purchase and fit new propeller hub assembly
• Strip off all old covering and completely re-cover the whole aircraft
• New spinner
• Re-cut new instrument panel
• New rings for later install if needed
• Install thin material trim inside cabin
• New dash-mount bracket for Garmin 196 (comes with GPS)
• Purchase and fit new LED landing light
• Replacement throttle lever
• New Perspex see-through doors
• New windshield
• Structurally lower seats for more headroom
• Fit upgraded / larger oil cooler
• Manufacture in-cowling baffling to direct airflow for aided cooling
• Purchase and fit new Matco tail-wheel
• Fit new bungees
• Purchase and fit new undercarriage with Matco hydraulic disk brakes
• Fit dual brake controls
• Purchase and fit larger wheels
• New positive pressure filler caps
• Spray job
• Intercom
• Transponder
• Icom IC-A200 radio and rigid antenna

The plane is in Potch and can be viewed at the AMO, Axella Aviation, they did the proving flights, so all new components have only a few hours on them.
