We purchased the first 3,500 Lb. AeroLift Cirrus Hangar Lift at the very end of 2017 for our hangar in Spruce Creek (7FL6). This is the ONLY hangar lift in the world that can lift a fully fueled Cirrus.
It did a great job for us. I've attached some photos showing our G5 Cirrus up in the air next to our Piper M350. Prior to that, we had it side by side with our Cessna 172SP. In fact, you can even see it showcased on the manufacturer's homepage at https://armaerospace.com
Long story short, we ended up selling our Cirrus G5 due to the need for cabin pressurization for our son's particular physiological needs. As such, we no longer need the AeroLift and we are looking to see that it finds a new home with a fellow COPAn who may have a need for it.
Buying it brand new typically costs around $16,000+ and usually requires weeks to months of lead time - we're selling our lift for $9,500 OBO and it is available immediately. The buyer will be responsible for transportation and removal/setup.
If anyone is interested, please let me know. It's a great lift and in perfect condition with very little use but I am sure that it will be much more beneficial to someone else at this point who actually has a Cirrus (or other!) airplane that they would like to lift up in their hangar. :)
Where in the Creek are you located? I just moved there a few mo the ago with my Malibu 9124Y
David, welcome to the neighborhood! It is a very unique place! :)
Our hangar is Cessna Blvd. Unit #12. Easiest way to reference it - our back wall is right behind the POA's office.
Do you have a hangar home or one of the hangar condo units there?
I bought a house on Waterway and currently renting a hangar off of Foxtrot. I love the place except July, August and September were a little too warm for me.
I may be interested. Right now we have two hangars at KRHV, I wouldn't mind consolidating.
Is the lift motorized? Can it be configured for a tailwheel? (Super Decathlon) How complex would the disassembly / reassembly be? Do you have original crates it came in?
Max, Chris had posted the web site.
It says "any light, also tail wheel", they have a "lighter" version as well.
Assembly is well explained here: https://armaerospace.com/products/assembly/
Yes, the lift is motorized. You can re-configure it for other aircraft outside of the Cirrus. In terms of tailwheel, I would think that you could load the aircraft onto it facing the opposite direction, after making sure the measurements would work. The legs are readily adjustable.
I do not have any original crates from it. Mainly, a forklift is required for taking it down or setting it up as the rift is very heavy and rugged. It was surprising to see how easily it lifted our 3,500 lb Cirrus!
Want to follow-up here - checked the hangar, and it's not tall enough, so I'll pass on this. Good luck.
I have same lift with the lower capacity of 2500 pounds. It has the tail wheel attachment. If you buy mine, I will buy Chris’s lift. He is a friend of mine. You need a truck to carry pieces. I may have a lift able to disassemble and load up lift on a truck. I have in the past loaded my Cirrus on it. The tail wheel attachment is custom made by the company.
