Good day all
I've purchased a fleet of four x 2008 G3's from a flying school gone broke. There is a variety of conditions but they all suffered from being cannibalised to some extent -
I have put one up on Barnstormers - this one we may not get the log books for.
We anticipate getting two into the air without much grief.. and the other subject to assessment.
We'll keep one and move the others - so if any one has any ideas they care to explore we 'd look at anything that makes sense.
Steve, best to remind folks that you are based in Australia. Are the aircraft based there also?
The advertisement in Barnstormers gives covers that . Yes, I'm in Aussie but it's not really relevant. The aircraft are in Malaysia but I can ship them any where WITHOUT removing the horizontal .
I hope to be able to be more specific in the next 10 days or so after the full assessment has been completed .
Malaysia is a hopeless place to run these aircraft - and it appears to be not much sense in getting them airworthy there only to send them to the better market in the U.S . I'd rather be giving full and frank disclosure in order to find a customer / partner who is capable of dealing with the airworthiness and re-registration.
Since we have a full set of avionics ( courtesy of an earlier event ) and some of these aircraft have none - we can get them pretty close to flying but he engines and props need doing.
I might be a player depending on the $. I'm located in Florida. Please send a pm when you have the details.
Well we played the cards as they fell. The first two are airworthy but due for CAPS repack. We are nearly through that issue but it has been a headache... not the least thanks to the Malaysian impracticality.
There is a fair compliment of spares generated if anyone is looking.
Will be posting again...
