    Detailed Description

    This is a CERTIFIED, NOT EXPERIMENTAL, and arguably the world's most efficient, most fun, and most capable warbird ever made.   N272C, serial number 20-01, is a 1974 STANDARD CATEGORY' UTILITY ' ACROBATIC Siai Marchetti SF-260B. The aircraft is fitted with a very low time, just 97 hours SMOH, Western Skyways, Lycoming IO-540-D4A5 with 260HP, and a low time Hartzell HC-C2YK-18F, 2 bladed aluminum propeller. This incredibly versatile, VFR/IFR aircraft is rated for aerobatics and stressed for up to +6/-3Gs at lighter weights (below 2,200 lbs) and +4.4Gs at heavier weights from (2,200 to 2,430 lbs).  This beautiful, stable yet nimble aircraft is capable of achieving 236 KIAS in a dive, and effortlessly cruises at 170 KIAS, burning 16 gph, at sea level. With fuel tanks topped carrying 61.4 US gallons, this aircraft can stay aloft for 4 hours at 14 gph and 3.5 hours at 16 gph taking you just over 500 nm in only 3 hours with no range anxiety. There is no other certified aerobatic aircraft in the world that can do this mission, day, night, VFR, IFR with 2 people and baggage.  N272C is currently configured with a Garmin 530, ADS-B Out only and steam gauges.  The camouflage gray paint is in excellent condition and has been recently painted. The interior is all original black vinyl. If you are interested in keeping all of the Air Combat USA proprietary gear, cameras, gunsights, smoke system, electronic tracking system, please let me know. We are now offering Franchise Opportunities to those who qualify and we will help you get up and operational as a new Air Combat USA Franchisee.     
    My Recommendations: 
    1.) Trade in the Garmin 530 and install a Garmin 750 in its place. Add an Aspen PFD to replace the Attitude Indicator and the HSI to refresh and upgrade the instrument panel and extend its service life for another 20+ years.
    2.) Refurbish the entire interior with all new black vinyl including the glareshield dash. It's all original and it's time to be replaced.
