Background

 

I’ve owned G-GULZ since 2008, the longest period of ownership of any aircraft I have had and flying her has been a joy. She has brought broad smiles to me and the dozens of people I have flown in her.  She has no vices, has a solid feel in flight and reliable controllability in all aerobatic manoeuvres which are handled with ease. I have operated her for the last 12 years from a 535 metre grass strip at Stoke Golding Airfield where I can be airborne in 150m and with a good approach, land to a full stop in under 330m. That said, tailwheel and short-coupled, high-performance aircraft experience is a must… and a few hours conversion with an instructor experienced on-type is highly recommended.

 

Benefitting from LAA authorisation for remunerated use, G-GULZ can be used for post PPL/CPL/ATPL dual training, UPRT, biennial flight reviews and private hire.

 

The aircraft is mechanically 9/10 with all maintenance and annual permit work over the last 12 years done by myself under the scrutiny of LAA Inspector Les James. I know every nut, bolt, fitting and lock wire on this machine as I’ve had my hands on all of them over the years.

 

G-GULZ has the correct specification Lycoming 'A1D' engine for the job, with low hours, an unmarked low-hour Hartzell propellor and sports the classic full 9 colour feather scheme with an excellent condition unmarked canopy.
