Exceptional Lancair 320-Mk2 Project in South Kent

Group Shares

Submitted by: L H van Cleeff

1 or 2 partner(s) sought to finalise the advanced high-standard refurbishment of this rare FAST aircraft.

 

Wanted: Minimum PPL +100 hrs, fast complex types, IR(R).

Desired: (Aero-)engine and composite frame GRE skills; avionics an advantage.

Input: £27k and proportional hands-on rebuilding involvement.

Scope: Permit renewal within 12 months, then operating/maintaining the aircraft as 3rd/4th co-owner.

 

Description

Only six of these fabulous LAA kit planes exist on the UK Register. They’re quite a handful but exhilarating to fly, with a 90-knot approach and true 165-knot cruise.

G-CBAF first flew in 2002. Her airframe is an extremely strong, maintenance-free epoxy-reinforced honeycomb structure. She has a VP/CS prop, retractable undercarriage, electric flaps and trim, and a GPS-integrated DigiFlight autopilot. The upgraded panel includes AoA and fuel flow meters, VOR, OAT/clock and extensive engine instruments. All instrument hoses were replaced with colour-coded silicone.

She has a GTX327 Xponder. The plan is upgrading the KX155 Nav/Com to an 8.33 compliant version and exchanging or complementing the SkyMap IIIC SatNav for or with an iPad Mini running SkyDemon.

Currently the Lycoming IO-320 engine (TSMO 93 hrs), magnetos and engine mount are being reconditioned and the zero-timed CS prop recertified by Hoffmann. Following their re-assembly it all needs to be put back together, the interior and some upholstery upgraded, minor body work done and all systems extensively tested prior to Permit re-issue planned for 2022.
