Kimball Pitts model 12 – the best in the world!

After almost 40 years in the aerobatic aircraft business, and having sold over 450 aircraft, I can honestly say that this is probably the most beautifully-made aircraft I have seen. The builder and owner is a leading UK architect, and the quality of its build is a testament to his extraordinarily high standards! It is to the latest specification with shorter fuselage and wings and larger ailerons. It was judged the best UK home-built aircraft in 2017.

First flown in July 2017, and total time since new on airframe and  MTV-9-250 propeller under 50 hours. We supplied the M 14 PF engine which we overhauled to perfect zero time condition having only flown 275 hours from new, and now under 50 hours since full overhaul. 426 dynamometer-recorded horsepower. Very light – only 695 kg, including oil and unusable fuel so amazing performance. Full dual controls and interchangeable single and two seat canopies. Special carbon fibre seats and Hooker ratchet harnesses front and rear. All hoses braided Aeroquip. No damage history.

 Extras include a very good smoke system; Trig VHF and transponder; Kanardia coupled AIA/GPS/IAS/altimeter; GN S 2000 GPS; full-flow oil filter.

UK permit to fly to July 2021. Please look at the photographs for the quality of the aircraft, and of course we can supply more photos.

Asking GBP 165,000 (approximately US 214,000/Euro 180,000 today), plus UK VAT if sold to a European Private purchaser. Current build price in USA $345,000! Very genuine reason for sale.
