Description Wilco Aviation are delighted to have this pristine example of Luscombe Silvaire 8E for sale. Listed with us exclusively G-LUSC is located at her private home base, near Husbands Bosworth.

The Luscombe 8 is a series of high-wing, side-by-side-seating monoplanes with conventional landing gear, designed in 1937 and built by Luscombe Aircraft.

Luscombe Aircraft closed in 1949, with its assets purchased by Temco Aircraft, also US-based. Temco built about 50 Silvaires before selling the rights to the Silvaire Aircraft Corporation in 1955.

Silvaire Aircraft Company: When TEMCO chose to discontinue production, the Luscombe tooling, parts and other assets were purchased by Otis Massey. Massey had been a Luscombe dealer since the 1930s. His new venture opened in Fort Collins, Colorado, as Silvaire Uranium and Aircraft Corp. From 1956 to 1961, this firm produced 80 aircraft. The make and model for all 80 was Silvaire 8F, with “Luscombe” shown in quotation marks in company literature. N9900C, serial number S-1, was built in 1956. This first aircraft was constructed from spares or Material Review Board (MRB) parts that were serviceable, but remaining from TEMCO’s prior production. TEMCO supplied enough inventory for the completion of approximately four aircraft. N9900C first flew on September 10, 1956. Six aircraft were built in 1957, with two of them being shipped to Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The assets of the Luscombe Corporation were acquired by Testrake Aviation in 2019. The company intends to restart production of the Luscombe 8.

𝐀𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐰𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐆-𝐋𝐔𝐒𝐂 𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐚 𝐟𝐮𝐥𝐥 𝐧𝐮𝐭, 𝐛𝐨𝐥𝐭 & 𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐭 𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐢𝐧 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟔. Every skin on the aircraft has been replaced and polished to give the gleaming mirror finish she has today.

Every component was either overhauled or replaced making this a ‘New Classic’ without all the usual problems associated with a vintage aircraft.

A complete list of parts and work completed is available on request including complete photographic evidence of this meticulous restoration.

The original Continental C-85 was zero-timed, and the engine and airframe has only flown 22 hours since the restoration.

The aircraft will be delivered with a new LAA permit to fly.
