Carlson Sparrow Ultralight Airplane Part 103. Purchased this airplane as a partially built aircraft in 2017 and in the past year I completed the build. It pretty much looks like brand new other than the wings are slightly faded as they must have been built years ago. It is an awesome little aircraft and a blast to fly. It flies and lands easily. Although a person doesn"t need a pilots license it is recommended that a person get some training since it flies just like a regular airplane. Total time on airframe and engine is approximately 36 hours but fly it frequently so it may change. Rotax 277 engine purrs like a kitten. It has an electric start with a neat mini jump start battery. Here"s a list of the brand new items that were put on it in the last year: Hegar slotted disc brake kit, tires, hand held radio, headset, tachometer, air speed indicator, windshield, cowling, Competition Aircraft Ultra Ground Adjustable Prop, Harness system, Slip/Skid indicator. Also just recently attached trim tabs to elevator and rudder so that it flies hands off at cruise speed of 63mgh. Holds 5 gallons fuel. Burns approximately 2.2 gallons an hour. This aircraft kit was designed by Ernie Carlson. Its an amazing airplane with chromoly frame and aluminum wing spars and ribs. Built almost identical to a Piper Cub. Many consider it to be the best ultralight ever built and most people who see it can"t believe it is an ultralight since it is a 3 axis controlled aircraft. It is a beautiful awesome little airplane and the reason I am considering selling is so that I can get a 2 place light sport aircraft since my wife is interested in flying with me since she saw how much fun I am having. Feel free to email with any questions, additional photos, etc. I have another partially built kit so can send photo of wings and airframe so you can see the quality. Compared to some of the ultralights being sold today for $20,000-$30,000. Can send video of flying aircraft if requested. When you see it in person you will be very impressed. It lacks nothing and is ready to fly. Wings can be removed for transport. Will demonstrate flight to buyer here at the beautiful Libby, Montana airport where the classic forest firefighting movie "Always" was filmed. Happy Bidding!
