Detailed Description

This Sonex was built by Merle Reppert, a master craftsman & builder of several airplanes & helicopters. N362DR first flew in 2010. I purchased the aircraft from Merle in 2012 with 80 hours on the Hobbs. Since then I have flown it an additional 135 hours. Always hangared & purposely never flown in the rain, N362DR has been well cared for. A Dynon Autopilot & 5 gallon auxiliary tank with a transfer pump were added last year.

Airframe

No airframe damage and minimal hangar rash, this aircraft has been well cared for and has never even spent a night outside.

The 5 gallon, welded aluminum racing fuel tank with anti-slosh foam is mounted behind the seat and has an external fill.  No dripping refueling nozzles in the cockpit.

Engines / Mods

Engine #33A411, 225 hours since new.

The cowling outlet area was increased based on pressure drop tests done with a manometer across the engine resulting in decrease of CHTs.

The oil temperatures are always in the green, even on the ground.

Remarks

This airplane was built by Merle Reppert a master craftsman and builder of several airplanes and helicopters. N362DR first flew in and I purchased the aircraft from Merle in 2012 with 80 hours on the Hobbs.  Since then I have flown it an additional 135 hours.  Always hangared and purposely never flown in the rain, N362DR has been well cared for.  While in my care I added a Dynon Autopilot and a 5 gallon auxiliary tank with a transfer pump.  The nose wheel offset is the giveaway that there’s a 3300 Jabiru in the cowling. That’s my Onex in the background.  

Whenever I land somewhere I get compliments on the aircraft and those that have flown in it are impressed with the performance.  I recently obtained a Onex, also Jabiru 3300 powered and built by Merle, leaving me with one too many airplanes in the hanger.  I have enjoyed flying N382DR, but it is time to pass it on to the next appreciative pilot.
