Description This French Lady has aged very gracefully indeed. The DR253 Regent has superior design lineage, it was the favourite child of Pierre Robin. One would do well to read the October Issue of Flyer Magazine where Mark Hales neatly summarizes “The rare DR253 is a wonderful aircraft, boasting all the traditional Robin strengths, but with more room, more lifting ability, more range, and more power from a 180hp Lycoming”. The photo of Pierre Robin leading a tour of Africa in 1969 in a DR253 sets a compelling frame for the capability of this 60’s design.

Any DR253 used to its full potential will be well-travelled, G-AWYL is no exception having been all over Europe where it’s lifting capability and economy really came to the fore. Pilots can expect to see 120kts IAS at just over 2400rpm burning 36L per hour. The current owner has nicely upgraded the panel with Garmin 8.33Khz Com and Mode S along with an EDM700 engine monitor to keep things sweet in the cruise.

Aircraft costing multiples of the price will not have such commendable paperwork as this. All original logs and even the original HM Customs & Excise Bill of Entry from 1969 is present. The cosmetics are original but sympathetically improved over the years, which gives it a charm that a newer aircraft could never imitate.

The last annual in Feb 2020 at 2564hrs TT had the team at National Flight Centre prepare an updated Time-Life Sheet and AD summary which we have in soft copy along with all the pertinent documentation plus the logs books in a PDF download. The Lycoming factory engine has just 574hrs SMOH and compressions at annual were 78/77/77/79. Recently the carburettor, starter and magnetos have been overhauled/replaced and inspected as necessary. Pilots who have flown the aircraft will be very sorry to see her go, as there is almost nothing comparable to the Regent for its turn of speed, load, visibility and the way it almost lands itself. Anybody deliberating as to what they can purchase, with 180hp, four seats, 120kts cruise and over 1000lbs of useful load will struggle to trump what is on offer with this superb aircraft.
