Description Transport yourself back to 1940's America. You are flying farm strip to farm strip and then maybe 30-40 miles into town. Aeroplanes were designed to fulfil a different mission. You must look at the post-war two-seaters in the context of which they were designed.

G-BSTX was imported into the UK in 1990 by the famous Ron Souch. The aircraft was then sold to Ireland in 1993, where the late great Sammy Bruton owned it for some years. Thereafter all the subsequent owners were known to us and they regularly had the aircraft at the annual PFA Rally in Kemble. The design and history of the aircraft appealed to us, so we set about repairing it after a landing accident in 2010. We will gladly talk anyone through the rounds we went to with the aircraft and the supporting LAA worksheets.

Built on 13th Aug 1946 the overall airframe time is just 2358hrs. The A65-8 has 656hrs SMOH on 29th April 2001. The prop has 70hrs SPOH. Inside you are looking at period spec instruments with a powered Icom AC22E and HM400 intercom. The aircraft has an air-driven alternator and battery fitted, so it can run LED nav lights, cockpit lights and 12V power to cockpit electrics. In-flight you are looking at about 80kts at 2200rpm burning 17L per hour. Fuel capacity is 53L so you have roughly 2.75hrs endurance with a reserve and a range of about 210nm in still air. With the parking brake set, it's up to the pilot to hand swing the aircraft to start which is a skill easily learned, but like so many things in aviation, it demands your full awareness. If you have ever set up a hot air balloon you will realise hand swinging an aeroplane, is a modest price to pay for a nice evening of flying. Really that is where an aeroplane like this fits in, frosty mornings or evenings after work when you want to go for a flip for an hour. Finishing off with a fully crossed side slip over the hedge to your favoured touchdown!
