Description 25k won’t buy much in a new aeroplane, but it buys a whole lot of classic charm with this 1946 Luscombe 8A. G-BSTX has an LAA permit valid through to 8th October 2024. It has an IAA Validation to fly in Irish airspace.

This 1946 Luscombe 8A, 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. Compressions are 77, 75, 75 and 77 so you won't get better.

Built on 13th Aug 1946 the overall airframe time is just 2361hrs. The A65-8 has 659hrs SMOH on 29th April 2001. The prop has 73hrs SPOH. Inside you are looking at period spec instruments with a power for an Icom AC22E (not 8.33Khz/not included) and HM400 intercom. The aircraft has an air-driven alternator and battery fitted, so it can run nav lights, cockpit lights and 12V power to whatever cockpit electrics you choose to fit. In-flight you are looking at about 84kts 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. The aircraft is located in Ireland, and is sold on a first up best dressed basis. Whoever books a flight, or signs an aircraft purchase agreement with a deposit can have it. The aircraft can remain Hangared until a suitable weather window appears to fly it to your destination.
