For sale is a 1/9th share in the Young Flying Group syndicate that owns and operates a well maintained IFR 180hp Cessna 172 and hangar at Young Aerodrome (YYNG) with reserve funds for engine and propellor replacement/overhaul.

The syndicate has been operating since 1987 and currently has eight members.

The aircraft is currently charged out at a rate of $270 per hour tacho which includes fuel, oil and maintenance.

Other than flying fees members pay an annual levy to cover fixed costs (e.g. insurance, hangar rates, ASIC fees, e-allocator fees), the levy for 2023-24 was set at $575.

Rather than keep our small but long-running syndicate a secret we thought we'd let other interested pilots know about this great little plane.

The exterior is mostly original and the plane has always been hangared. During the recent SIDs program the main landing gear springs and one belly skin were replaced and repainted. At this time the wing struts were also repainted.

There is some hail damage on the horizontal stabiliser.
