  1. Would like to find someone with a CTLS that will let me come look at their plane and maybe take me up. I can travel to you almost any day. Hopefully within driving distance. Thanks.

    Yep when a red flag waves I walk. There is another low time plane but hasn't flown in 5-6 years but until you get the log books you don't know. The broker said he didn't know anything about it. That's the second broker who has played dumb.

    There is another seller with a couple year old CT that I talked with 8 months ago and asked if he would send me the log books. Can't have more than 5-6 pages. Said he didn't have them scanned. He lives a few hours by car from me so I asked if I could come the next Saturday and see it. He said an instructor who flies it could meet me so I said I'd come up Friday night and stay in a hotel then meet like at 7-8am. He then said he couldn't promise the instructor would be there. I asked for the number for the instructor so I could arrange a time he could for sure meet me. The seller said he couldn't give the number out. It's not like I'll call him every day for 2 years. So I gave up. Noticed he'd dropped his price by $20k so I called him again. Same answers. No log book scanned (8 months later). Gee what is wrong with people? He acts like a jerk on the phone, too. Oh well, he said he may email the log books to me in a month or so and was about to hang up when I asked if he wanted my email address. He said to text it to him but I doubt I'll hear from him. He must have lost the log books or is hiding something.

    Washington is too far from Alabama to be practical. Also, the 42 hours in 6 years is a turn off for me. Thanks, though. Let me know about your CTLS if you decide to sell. Btw, I've seen some log book entries say something like "replaced RT main landing gear, details in office". The guy dis have his name and I believe a file number but you have to call and dig it up. It keeps the log books from being so lengthy I guess.

    But I’m making 20%+ so a $100k airplane will effectively have cost me $125k in a year (plus expenses of course) and $150k in 2 years, etc. 😊

    Thanks for the tips! I am beginning to think of how much I'm making in the stock market and do I want to withdraw to buy an airplane. Ha!

    Thanks Dick. I've owned before but not a LSA. There is a Rotax Authorized shop 50 miles from me who has seen a good many CTs so any potential purchase will to straight there after I look at the log books and agree on a price and terms. One of these sellers had a proble getting his log books to me in order and without skipping pages. They tried again and didn't do much better. However, there was damage from a hard landing very obvious in the log book. I sent them an email asking if there was any damage history (I knew there was) and there reply was a definite no. At that point I'm not interested anymore. You could cut the price in half and I'm still not interested. Something will show up eventually.

    Still looking. Had 2 sellers tell me NDH then when I got the log books there was DAMAGE! Are people that stupid to think I'm stupid?

    Glad to see someone else uses them. I bought a $10 one for a spare. Tom flexible so zero support.

    Refuelling My CT

    I used something like this for a battery to run a Fil-Rite 13gpm pump. My pump pulled 18 amps and my battery was rated at 20 amps. Worked perfectly and you also have a tire inflator if you need it. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002X6VXL4/ref=psdc_318336011_t1_B0024GR0S8

    I use this brand in all my chairs at home and I couldn't get by without it. I bought another brand and it was cheaply made. The Travelon has held up for 2+ years. https://www.amazon.com/Travelon-Cool-Mesh-Support-System/dp/B00HFUCC36/ref=sr_1_112?ie=UTF8&qid=1510369765&sr=8-112&keywords=mesh+lumbar+support
  12. Thanks Roger. I’ll have a pre purchase done by my guy when the time comes. Prior to that the main items I’m looking for are: Chute repack Rubber replacement 2020 Compliant NDH Of course those can be priced into the sales price one way or the other. Any others?
  13. Trying to figure out when buying a used CTLS if I'm required to OH at 12 years or 2,000 hours. I believe the 12 years will will happen before the 2,000 hours. If I buy a 2008 model will I be required to OH in 2020 by either Rotax or the FAA? If I don't, what are the possible repercussions to me? I've read all these posts and need a little guidance Did the FAA ever send a letter out? TIA
