Re: Interesting Tiger in Trade a Plane

Hmm - add another what, $5k minimum and $25k if it needs a new engine?

Did they have pics?

No pictures.

The airplane is located in Florida...I'd like to know more about the paint, interior and plexiglass.

With over 6,000 hours on the airframe the aircraft flew an average of about 220 hours a year. I'd also want to know how tight the control linkages feel and I'd like to know more details about how the prop strike occured.

With a zero time engine Vref lists the airplane at $60K with existing avionics and everthing else marked as average. There is some room to work between the asking price and what the plane could be worth.

Yeah, considering FL, did the prop strike occur as a result of one or more of the hurricanes striking the airplane against one or more hangars?

Greg,

Hadn't thought about it in those terms. I was thinking prop strike as opposed to strike prop.

Seriously, in so much as a Tiger is a fixed gear aircraft I figured somebody landed either hard or long or both...or...taxi'd into a light or a ditch or something.

You bet it did. The Cherokee lost one of its wheels and plowed into a ditch and the alligator slinked away into a canal. They're tough critters.
