Cheap hour builder, fun flying and only selling to move to a 4 seat Grumman for longer trips and passenger carrying. That said, I took this one solo from Canberra to Tasmania (Wynyard) in January so it can also be used for touring if you're travelling light and happy to stop every 2.7 hours (83 L usable fuel) 🙂.For an accurate summary of these great little aircraft see https://www.aopa.org/.../pilot/budget-buy-grumman-aa1b

Has 2 VHF radios (including new Garmin GTR 200) and Mode A/C transponder and 12V cigarette lighter for your iPad.

New exhaust, exhaust clamps and carby shroud fitted (good for another 50 years...).

LED landing light fitted and fuses have all been replaced with CBs.

The canopy seal has been replaced and it comes with a canopy cover and new engine inlet plugs.

Please also let me know of any 4 seat Grummans for sale.
