Airplane has been purchased in Virginia, in February 2019, delivered in May to our facility. All systems have been replaced or restored, engine inspected in engine shop. New Radio and Transponder has been installed. New firewall, floor, upholstery, control cables, safety harness. Annual Inspection carried out. All work took 5 months of the hard work… Test flight has been done in October 2019!
From 1998 to 2010, I have been conducting test flights for Czech Aircraft Works. I had the opportunity to fly over 470 new aircraft during this time period. Most were Zenair aircraft, followed by Sportcruiser, several Mermaid flying ships and other types of aircraft.
