Serial #13: N9957Y A beautiful flying example. Total fuel flow 10 gph and designed simply for ease of maintenance. This is a true "composite" aircraft: aluminum wing spars, steel tube frame, wood formers, fabric covering, and fiberglass nose and engine cowlings. Parts acquisition is not a problem with thousands of O-200s produced and Lancer shares many parts with Champs/Citabrias.
Only 26 Lancers were produced. Currently, only 9 on the FAA register and only 4 are airworthy.
Included in purchase - many original factory design drawings.
Serial #22. N9927Y Restore it or use for parts. Nearly complete (missing rear seat), very original project. Includes rare original back seat instrument panel. Disassembled in 2018 and stored in heated garage. Steel tube airframe appears to be in good condition, however, tail control surfaces have extensive corrosion. Also, some corrosion on the underside of inboard metal part of wings. Original logs missing. Ground up restoration needed. TTAE estimated 657 hours.
Please note: With original O-200 engines the Lancer is not well suited to high and hot operations. Performance is similar to a stock Cessna 150. With inop engine descent rate is 250 fpm. Due to fixed pitch props and fixed gear, it is best to get a multi-engine rating in another plane first, then build multi time in the Twin Champ for about $50 per hour (direct operating costs).
