Ferry tank for Cubby

Unread post by Flying88 » Fri Jun 24, 2016 8:53 am

Hi All.

We are finally making headway in getting ZU-EIB back in the sky, and we want to take her to Lilongwe, Malawi when she's fixed up as that's where we live...
Firstly, does anyone have any advice or potential concerns for this?
My plan is then to build a fuel tank to put temporarily in the front seat for the ferry flight up. Does anyone have advice or concerns about that? It would obviously be measured out and I would try see if the front stick can be taken out...

Help please..

Matthew,

give me a call. I will happy to chat with you about options.
I flew up to Botswana and Namibia in my Cubby a few years back and will share with you what we did.

Send me a PM and I will give you my Telephone #.
