Mainair Blade 912 G-BZDD SOLD thanks AFORS United Kingdom
Blade 912 £5600
Selling my beautiful Blade 912 due to buying new aircraft.
This aircraft comes with an extensive and fully documented history, most importantly and significantly a no expense spared full trike and wing rebuild by P&M aviation in 2013 (following a landing accident) with many parts replaced for new (see photograph of log book entry). The aircraft has only flown 152hrs since this rebuild and has been meticulously maintained and obviously cherished by its owners as it’s fantastic condition can attest, a fact regularly commented on by other pilots.
The important bits.
Total logged airframe and engine hours 1564
Always Syndicate or private ownership (never a school training machine)
Prop blades (Warp drive) 152 since being renewed
Permit expiry 29th May 2019. Inspector contact details available by request for unbiased professional opinion...
All SB’s and mandatory directives up to date, including flying wires.
Landing light and strobes
65 litre fuel tank
Skirt replaced for new by last owner.
Trike cover, prop blade covers, wing bag and batten bag.
New touring screen included, not in photographs as I prefer the wind in my face.
Training Bars included in sale.
Briefcase bag containing extensive history, all invoices, manuals, batten profile etc
I have reprofiled all the battens, the wing flies straight and level and the trimmer works over a 5mph range, trim speed is 60-65mph on front hang point (4100rpm) and 55-60mph (3900rpm) on centre hang point.
This aircraft offers quite a few plus points in as such that it has the old type sail material that reputably never fails (it certainly passed this years betts test easily), I know the engine hours may put some off but I have total confidence in it, it starts and runs great with all the gauges exactly where they're meant to be, all previously recorded compression tests show good and balanced results and a new one can and will be conducted prior to sale (in the presence of buyer if required) many schools worldwide report running these to 4000hrs, and of course it had a professional inspection and shock load test only 152 hrs ago, the airframe, wing & prop are effectively very low hours, it has been meticulously maintained and the aircraft looks superb.

Any inspection welcome and encouraged I dare say that you will not be disappointed.
