So my friend has two airplanes, both were out of annual, and little cash. I got the American Yankee through annual last September and he was supposed to sell it but never did. Then he had a prop strike. While fixing that last month, the annual ran out. I did the prop strike and the 100-hour (my IA will come behind me and just inspect) on the "pay me when you sell" basis. I even fronted the cost of the prop. Like I said, a friend. Now it looks like the Yankee might need a cylinder. He was at his wits end and I did not feel like fronting up any more money so I made him an offer. $14,500 as-is less what he owed me if he would take $1k/month. He was happy to take that offer. The airplane just needs some love (compound, touch-up paint, that sort of thing). It flies very nicely. $14,500 is just an OK price for it with the iffy cylinder, IMO, but I do not have cash either though I do have nice steady retirement income. This way I get an airplane that I enjoy flying. The other airplane is a 1964? Cherokee 140.
