Any 'secret' light wings for sale?

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

I'm still looking at Lightwings and wondering if anyone knows of any that might be available for purchase, but not yet advertised. And, yep, I know Ebay has a couple!

Thanks Pat. I think a GR582 would be perfect.

 

Love to see some more 'on water' shots of your too by the way!

Yes I have been considering selling the lightwing.. Unfortunately It's looking like my wife and pa both have put the brakes on my decision Because of it safety history( plus they love it's rugged good looks). I also know Doug Evens with 001 was also considering selling his?

 

If and when I do sell it , it will be an honest ad, it has a MTOW of only 400 kgs and weighs EMPTY 230.kgs.-

 

The gr582 I believe have a higher MTOW than the early LW1's.

 

They are IMO one of ( if not) the best all purpose rag,n,tube aircraft ever built. And I love my 2 bangers . Good luck

Did Bob Burns at Helidon near Toowoomba sell his GR582?

 

Was/has been advertised for some time.

Hi Mike -Yes he did. I saw it, flew in it and foolishly left it go, now sold.....Grrrrr.

 

Thanks Col - is that the well travelled and multiply-rebuilt one? (Properly done mind you, not a criticism...)

I'm not sure how well travelled or if and how many rebuilds. For more details checkout http://srfc.org.au/blog/?p=2817

 

Keep well

Yep, you'd be mad to Doug....

 

Thanks Col - was looking for some details. It's had some ups and downs, but also some good aftercare I would say!

Yep, it does Ross.

 

Gents - I have my wires crossed re the other one I mentioned - SRFC's is not the one I thought it was!
