Sportcruiser G-CFNV United Kingdom
Sportcruiser (CRUZ) £55,000
Cherished since new - steadily and regularly flown, as it should be, far and wide within the UK and Europe. 975 hours engine and airframe. Meticulously maintained and kept in a warm, dry hangar at Finmere aerodrome. Shared by the original owner and one other who has been co-owner since 2011.
Built to a very high standard by Graham Smith (Sportcruiser UK agent at the time) in late 2009 with a high quality paint finish and what he describes as the best propeller solution for the airframe - an in-flight adjustable Woodcomp Varia 170 (180 hours since factory overhaul) – all the benefits of variable pitch without the cost and reliability issues of electronic/constant speed devices. Cruises at 105 knots, returning 16-18 litres per hour on average.
Next engine service due in 50 hours and the permit is due in November 2020. Latest Rotax soft-start ignition modules fitted in August 2019.
Clear, neat and traditional six pack flying instruments but with newly installed Kanardia Horis 80 multi-function unit replacing the original Trutrak ADI. Trig TY97 8.33 radio, Garmin 328 transponder, properly installed Pilot Aware unit with external antennae, giving comprehensive traffic information to eg. Skydemon display or your phone. A Flarm mouse is currently fitted; this will be removed before sale but could possibly be included by negotiation.
Ameriking ELT, Leather interior, adjustable sunshade, adjustable pedals, touring covers, bespoke wing locker waterproof cases. Other usual Sportcruiser features (wing lockers, electric flaps/rudder/aileron trim, dual toe brakes); LAA ‘gold standard’ noseleg fitted in 2018.
Spare Woodcomp Varia prop, zero hours - unused since return from factory with full overhaul and new blades fitted – this would be open for negotiation, could be part of the sale.
Reason for sale – hoping to buy an RV. Reduced to £55,000
