I am regretfully selling my prized CJ. (Scroll down to see pics) I have too many airplanes and I'm getting out of formation flying. This is not your run of the mill CJ which was retired from the chinese military, but was bought directly from an active duty base, and was completely overhauled before release. This airplane has never let me down and is extremely reliable. The engine compartment is extremely dry as opposed to other CJ's that are completely soaked in oil after a flight. The wheel wells look great, and all the pneumatics are in perfect condition. All the gear bushings are tight, and all the control cables were replaced 4 years ago. She is equipped with a Garmin 430 if you are so inclined for IFR flight. I will consider selling the airplane alone, and then the parts, but I wont sell the parts untill the airplane is sold. She is in beautiful condition with new paint. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are the specs.
Asking $105k or $85k without spares
1964 CJ-6A with 285 HP Housai Engine
2300 TTAF, 300 hrs since AF and Engine over haul.
Garmin GTX 320 Transponder
King KI 209 Indicator
New paint in June 2005 (See Below)

Its been a while since my last post. Weather hadnt been cooperating with me. 3 solid weeks of rain kept me from painting since I was worried about the humidity and heat while shooting Imron. I finally decided to go for it, and the results werent bad.

This is my first official blog so forgive me while I figure this crap out. 25 years as a computer geek doesnt mean I have to understand half this stuff. Anyway, I'm going to talk less and publish mostly pics, as soon as I figure out how Picasa posts my pics to this blog.
