History of this Aircraft

The current owners acquired this aircraft in September 2004. Previously it had been in Iowa. One of the current owners is an A&P Mechanic, and has taken very good care of this aircraft. In the fall of 2008, a bad wind storm caused substantial damage to this aircraft when portions of the hanger were blown in. Thanks to insurance, this aircraft was completely restored. Replacment wings were purchased, and the aircraft received a complete airframe inspection and overhaul. As part of that repair, the rigging of the aircraft was inspected and adjusted, so this aircraft flys straight and has a light touch.

Flying this aircraft is like driving a sports car. The aircraft can be flown with the canopy open under a certain airspeed, which makes for an awesome experience. Both existing owners are instrument rated pilots, and can vouch for this aircraft's IFR capabilities.
