G-KIRB is a Europa XS tri-gear on a LAA Permit. The full permit was first issued in late 2020 and the aircraft now has about 45 hours air time.
Engine is a Rotax 912ULS with Airmaster CS propeller. This gives a comfortable journey cruise at 130kts using around 18lph. My average consumption so far is around 15lph.
Flight instrumentation is an Avmap Ultra mini-EFIS plus backup conventional ASI and altimeter. Engine instrumentation is MGL, monitoring oil T & P and 4 x EGT, 2 x CHT, RPM and voltage with alarms on all parameters, and Hobbs time. There are also analogue gauges for RPM, MAP, volts, fuel pressure and fuel contents. Avionics include a Funkwerk VHF, Trig transponder with ADSB out, SmartAss airspeed annunciator and PilotAware Rosetta. There is a CO alarm.
The aircraft is well finished and smartly upholstered. I have the speed kit (i.e. wheel spats and leg fairings) but not fitted them yet.
Present annual fixed costs are £1800 airfield charges, £1200 (app) insurance and about £450 for annual permit inspection, LAA permit fee and consumables - oil, plugs etc.
The aircraft is parked out with covers during good weather. For bad weather I have dry, weatherproof storage de-rigged in a 24ft x 8ft container. This gives enough room for most maintenance work. I also have an open trailer should it need to be taken anywhere by road.
As it’s a permit aircraft, almost all maintenance can be done by the owners and a co-owner must be ready to help with that depending on their technical skills.
If you're interested in shared trips so much the better.
KIRB is based at Deanland airfield in East Sussex. It’s a very nice environment but groups are not allowed, this has to be a 50% share. Price £20k.
