Pitts S-1 Project For Sale (UK Flown Example) United Kingdom
Pitts S-1C (S Wing) Offers
Really reluctant sale of my Pitts Project due to an unforeseen change in circumstances.
Built as an S-1C in the US in 1978. Currently has a full set of S-1S Wings so aircraft is effectively an S-1S and can be flown as such with full LAA paperwork giving details of this approval.
Moved to the UK in 1988 and flown here for a number of years up until 2014 when she was grounded for a tidy up and restoration due to tired fabric and high hour engine suffering with corrosion.
Small crack in wing rib requires repair but fully repairable with a splice or plates.
-Lower Wings x2
-Upper wing (Complete)
-Flying control systems complete
-firewall and engine mount
-SERVICEABLE full set of flying wires
-all fuselage panels
-Crack free canopy
-All flying control surfaces
Effectively a complete airframe all there minus a tidy up of the airframe, fabric, engine, propeller & up to date instrumentation!
As an aircraft that has flown in the UK for many years you have no worries of complying with the LAA regulations as would be a worry with other imports.
Airframe total time:
Really sad to see her go but needs must!
No time wasters please
