We sold this 18T from the factory when new to France and subsequently to its second current owner. We believe it is the second last 18T ever manufactured by the Smolensk factory. It has exceptional specification including long-range (360 L) fuel, all in wing tanks; inverted fuel and oil (very rare with 18T); very nice leather interior. Total hours from factory new 650. M 14 P engine, also 650 hours (1000 hour TBO), engine recently totally checked by Aerometal in Hungary; propeller only done 22 hours and good until 2024; will have new ARC before sale.
Total overhaul conducted in the last few years including complete new fabric on wings, tail and elevators; new paint; all control cables and electrical systems either replaced or checked; new hoses fitted (10 year life good to 2028.
Excellent additional equipment and extras, including Cambrai fitted covers; control locks; air-recharging hose; wingtip strobe lights; modern door retainers; new Hooker harnesses for all seats; automotive plug conversion kit; 8.33 VHF; mode S transponder; second altimeter et cetera.
Importantly it is one of the 18T recognised by EASA and therefore free to continue to be registered in any European country. Originally registered in the EU, so while currently “G” registered, there would be no tax implications on a sale and registration in the EU and no VAT if a UK sale.
Currently based at Headcorn in south-east UK.
Asking £95,000 (approximately €110,000 today). No VAT.
