In addition a strobe, electric carb de-icer and radio have been fitted as minor mods with all necessary paperwork. A Yaesu FTA-550L radio, two Lynx headsets and a Lynx intercom are also included.
Permitted until November 2019 with the BMAA. For the permit the wings were stripped, cleaned and inspected and the aileron skins replaced with a pair taken from a scrapped 140 hour Thruster. She also had new main wheel tyres, battery and some new glazing.
The Ultra-Lam skins are Red and Yellow, legal and safe but rather tired. The sale includes the remaining Red and yellow wing and tail skins from the damaged Thruster. These skins are in excellent condition and if protected from sunlight until they are needed will future proof the aircraft as Ultra-Lam skins are no longer available.
The aircraft is currently hangared at North Weald Airfield, Essex where it can be viewed by appointment.
