Supapup for me?

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I'm new here, but keen to benefit from the accumulated wisdom of the forum members.

 

I've just converted to RAA licence from GA, having found myself in need of transport, and no longer having a cessna to fly. After considerable research and deliberation I concluded that I needed an aircraft with the following attributes.

 

1. all metal

 

2. folding (high) wings

 

3. single seat, enclosed cabin

 

4. reliable air cooled engine

 

5. safe and proven design, preferably Australian pedigree

 

6. good stol performance more important than cruise speed, but not under 80 kts cruise.

 

7. taildragger

 

8. affordable.

 

now it seems that nothing fits these requirements perfectly, but the Supapup comes close, apart from not being all metal.

 

Any thoughts and/or advice most welcome.

Hello Mainrotor, I have a 2 seater Aeropup and if you give me a fax number or phone me at 0888492060 or mob 0417492065 I will give you the stats on mine. It is advertised in the AviationAdvertiser.com and will be flown to Temora at Easter. It will be advertised in next months magazine. Asking price $55g because it is in its prime and very well fitted out with Tx, radios,fuel comp,cht,colour gps 296, cab heat etc.

Thanks Guys,

 

Curandero, I really want a single seat aircraft. James, I have heard good reports of your Supapup. I'm still at the stage of making up my mind if the Supapup is the right aircraft for me before I buy.

Thanks Guys, I actually called John and he said that there was little technical info (or manuals) on previous marks (Mk I, II and III) as these kits and complete aircraft were constructed under a different company than John's previous company (current Mk IV version). I really appreciate your help though.

 

Cheers
