912 Blade - SOLD - Deposit taken United Kingdom
912 Blade £5250.00 (hull only £3000)
SOLD: DEPOSIT TAKEN
I am selling our 912 Blade. It had a full factory wing strip just 120 flying hours ago.
Altogether, it has 2340 hours on the airframe and engine, and maintenance has never been skimped. Permit until 22/02/2020.
Photos of some relevant pages of the logbook and P&M work sheets are here on afors.
It was one of the last Blade wings to be factory-stripped and overhauled at Rochdale, one of the first to get the new rigging wires and last year had a new radiator.
The engine is the best running one in the hangar - so good that we would be very happy to keep it should someone just need the airframe. Perhaps your Blade has been blown over, for example, and you can't wait for the new company to offer spares.
As you would expect, it also comes with prop and trike covers, a Lynx interface and an old Icom radio.
Some highlights of the aircraft's record:
18/04/2019: Starter motor stripped, cleaned and refitted.
06/04/2019: New battery fitted, oil and filter change
05/01/2019: New nylon hang bracket bearing fitted
25/03/2018: New P&M radiator fitted
14/02/2018: New LH carb floats, new RH carb gasket
14/06/2017: New lower flying wires fitted, per P&M SB 147 (2270 hrs)
06/01/2015: P&M factory wing strip: new keel, new LH leading edge tube front and rear, new RH leading edge tube rear, new hang bracket etc. (2218 hrs)
Last work before I bought it was:
09/10/2012: New front stub, front fork, shock absorber, front strut centre and top, front wheel bearing assembly.
I hope that all helps. You won't get a better 912 weightshift for the money!
