If I were in the market for a Shadow this is the one I would go for I personally know the plane and owner and know the way in which it has been looked after and maintained a plane to buy and fly at a very good price.

I know the feeling, more paperwork than pleasure. But try to look at it like a gorgeous 20 year old. You have to wine and dine them, buy them gifts and take them on nice holidays. Of course if your wife finds out she’ll blilsem you

I've been advised that my asking price is a bit on the high side.

No problem if that's the case.
Willing to negotiate with interested parties.

Many LSA are for "normal" size people. Had one if these many years ago. What a pleasure to fly. Pax has to be small though.... I agree that price is a bit high in these times... good luck with sale.

I flew this aircraft BHD for 8 hours in one day 784km on low level survey! Pleasure to fly! 18-June 1999

I also had a Jabiru engine failure at low level -- BHD glides well has low stall led to safe touch down not a scratch to BHD a non event really, pulled wings off and trailered home.

The horizontal stabilizer attachment to the "boom" needs to be checked regularly as flex causes the holes to elongate after many (hundreds) hours of use.

This aircraft can be "spiraled" in to the ground and you will most likely walk away with a few bruises-- the fiber glass fuselage can absorb a tremendous load. Your wing will survive too being a wooden main spar!

The take off is super fun -- like a tailwheel in reverse -- The view (in all axis) is unmatched to any aircraft I have flown and I have flown plenty. Controls are super light right hand airbus side stick style. Aircraft has electric trim that worked super well all the time. I loved the manual flaps super reliable and natural --Throttle feel and position is superb such a lovely design fighter jet style. Cruise speed easy 80 MPH (non fighter jet style but who cares its Sunday morning VMC) Wing overs were a delight. I tried many times and different techniques to spin her and I just could not spin -ran out of rudder ran out of elevator. Streaks have Long wings anti-spin tendencies. Stalling is a non event maybe a mild wing drop at times with slow rotation and super slow speed due high lift wing and good washout, I even use ailerons keep wing level with no spin tendencies ever. Low speed authority on this aircraft superb due close prox of pusher prop can flare and flare wheelie all the way to the apron! Fairly good roll rate but noticeable flexing when trying to snap ailerons in longitudinal axis, hence secondary effect of controls highly noticeable in roll -countered easy with timely rudder. BHD is a Rudder sensitive aircraft - improves your stick n rudder.

Seating position is the most unique part and enjoyable part of this aircraft -- -your legs are flat forward and you laze back into the seat man! Put the Bob Marley on and chill while ya just helicopter feel the controls on you side stick, trimmed out you can Laze in the sky for hours.

Best kept secret of this little gem --- the TRAILER -- take your pride and Joy anywhere anytime and within a few minutes she is rigged and ready!

Whoever buys this aircraft will be blessed and will enjoy the comfort and safety!

Seller Quote:- ANNUAL INSPECTIONS AND THE ADMIN FOR CAA TOO MUCH FOR ME TO BOTHER DEALING WITH. COMPULSORY MEMBERSHIP OF VARIOUS ORGANISATIONS AS WELL AS COMPULSORY INSURANCE GOES AGAINST MY PRINCIPLES

I fully agree with you --general aviation is over regulated and even the passionate are finding it troublesome to deal with all the bureaucracy! Shame on CAA Shame on EAA
If you are a PPL pilot who hires a Cessna and own an experimental aircraft and one who occasionally takes to the slopes and Paraglides you have to:-

1. Renew PPL and Class 2 medical; Admin, Pay fees...
2. renew ATF; renew EAA membership; renew radio Stat license... Admin, Pay loads fees...
3. Renew PG with CAA NPL...Admin Pay Fees and SAHPA, Admin and Pay Fees...

If you were an instructor in any of these.... Admin and Pay more fees...

Thanks GFlyer

Your description of the aircraft and it's characteristics are 100% accurate.
Put it way better than I could have done.

Did you own the aircraft at the tIme you did the 8 hours flying?
As for the cockpit position... you are right. It's like flying a little jet fighter and you certainly maneuver without any fear of spinning her at all.

I will miss her, but decision made to sell.
