GN 1 Pietenpol N6383J for sale at KWEA (Weatherford):I bought it in 05, and have flown it more than.
I bought it in "05, and have flown it more than 500 trouble-free hours since then, including going from Indiana to TX and OK to Oshkosh and back. It is an incredibly fun airplane...I"d rather fly it than the Cardinal, 172, Pacer, or other airplanes I fly, though those serve their own purposes well. I even took it to 10,500" once (it was cold). I don"t have to explain to most of you guys how great these planes are...most of you already know. I"m selling because I don"t fly it anymore since I have two little girls I always take with me. I see no point in letting the plane sit unused.
Approx 1,000hrs SMOH
Two cylinders with less than 100hrs
Slick impulse mags
Engine runs great
18.3 gallon nose tank (extended nose)
Around 700 hours TTAF
Built in 1983, new paint in the late 90s.
Narrowed cub gear. Cub firewall forward
Battery on firewall for GPS, intercom and handheld
External antenna on bottom of nose (I kept it at Meacham, under DFW"s
class Bravo for a while)
When doing work on the plane, I try to do absolutely top notch work using the best parts, or I don"t do it. I striped and painted the eyebrows, made new ceramic coated exaust, stripped/painted the valve covers, just finished "overhauling" the tailwheel, have new bungees ready to go on it, tires are in good shape, refinished the wood cap strips on both sides of the fuselage as they were showing wear, built aluminum skidplates for the pilots feet, etc., i.e., I"ve tried to keep it from getting run-down. There are a couple of spots in the paint that need to be touched up, otherwise there are no issues with this airplane. I"d confidently fly it 1,000 miles tomorrow.
Will deliver anywhere for expenses. Current date: 2017-04-19
