Detailed Description

Fresh from annual with a brand new top overhaul, this 140 has all the bells and whistles. O200? Check. Wheel Extenders and Clevland Disc Brakes? You bet. Scott 3200 Tail Wheel? Of course. ADSb out compliant, this aircraft is perfect for any traffic pattern at any airport, and with a Foreflight subscription, it can be the new pilot's cross-country-hour-building-dream-machine. Every airport restaurant I eat at, the old-timers tell me "I had one once, wish I never got rid of it" and "if you can fly that, you can fly anything." I recently picked up another old tail dragger so it's time for me to pass this plane on and let someone else enjoy the rewarding experience of mastering a 1940's tailwheel plane.

Interior / Exterior

The interior consists of a bench seat with the flap handle in the middle and cargo space behind the seat. It has a tan and brown color pallet. It was my dream to redo the interior, but now you'll have a chance to pick a new interior, should you decide to replace it yourself. 

The exterior is white with tan and brown stripes.

Remarks

This airplane taxis and flies phenomenally well. It has been maintained very well and has very detailed logbook entries. It is current and up to date on all AD's and inspections.
