Other information:These two aircraft are the most original of the few in SA. This taildragger has no vices and is one of the very few taildraggers that allows you to see the runway in the 3-point attitude from the pilot seat. They are on the same type certificate as the Citabria and can still be bought new for about R2.5M. Compared to the "other taildragger" it is better/faster because the engine is fully cowled, aileron rigging internal and no bungees etc. Both aircraft are in Part 24.
I also have two engines with numerous new parts almost ready for assembly. (C85-12 and A65-8). The 65 has standard size cylinders.
Then there are new spare tail wheels, leaf springs, J3 tail springs, ceconite etc.
The 256sq m hangar at Springs is also for sale, or take the whole lot for R870k.

These two aircraft and spares are still for sale. (Aug 2018) For those worried about the climb rate on the highveld, they climb steeper than a 152. The wife and I used to go camping with a 3/4 foam mattress, tent, bedding etc. on board. Instructor and I did training in summer using the old 04 and 22 900m runway at Springs.

My father rebuilt BBS many years ago and he always raved about the performance on 65hp.

I have a 1/4 scale model of her in her old scheme.

Best of luck with the sale!

Yes these Aeroncas and Engines are still for sale. Amazing that people would rather buy a more expensive clapped-out Cub. The Aeronca was designed to improve on the Cub and the Aeronca was much more expensive in its day.
