1998 AVIAT HUSKY A1A, 971 SNEW, DAMAGED, SUPER CHEAP !!

THE HUSKY IS THE MODERN BACK-COUNTRY/BUSH-PLANE !!

50 YEAR NEWER TECHNOLOGY THAN THE SUPER-CUBS AND PA-16'S, WITH MODERN SYSTEMS, WIDER CABIN, MORE STORAGE, ETC.

IMPECCABLE SHORT/SOFT/ROUGH FIELD CHARACTERISTICS, ALONG WITH RESPECTABLE CROSS COUNTRY RANGE AND SPEED !!

THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THE HUSKY IS THE PRICE !! 

NEW ONES ARE $380,000 FOR PETE'S SAKE !!

EVEN USED, THEY MAINTAIN THEIR VALUE.  YOU CANT REALLY FIND A 1980S MODEL FOR LESS THAN $90-100,000, AND A 1998 A-1A LIKE THIS ONE WILL BE $125,000!!

WHAT IF YOU COULD BUY ONE FOR 1/10TH THAT COST?

SURE IT WOULD BE A PROJECT, BUT YOU WOULD BE STARTING AT A PRICE LOWER THAN A SUPER-CUB PROJECT, AND THE VALUE WHEN YOU ARE DONE MIGHT BE TWICE THAT OF A PA-18 !!

IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO TUBE AND FABRIC WORK, WHY NOT DO IT ON A NEWER AIRPLANE, ONE WITH A RETAIL VALUE WHEN FLYING THAT MAKES IT WORTH THE EFFORT. 

TO KEEP AND FLY, OF SELL WHEN YOU ARE DONE, THIS AIRPLANE MAKES SENSE !

THIS 1998 HUSKY A-1A HAS ONLY 978 HOURS SINCE NEW !!

IT WAS DAMAGED IN IDAHO, WHEN A STUDENT LET IT GET TOO SLOW ON APPROACH TO A SMALL TIGHT GRASS STRIP, AND THE INSTRUCTOR IN THE BACK DIDN'T CATCH IT IN TIME.

THE AIRPLANE MUSHED INTO THE GROUND, WHICH DAMAGED THE MAIN GEAR,BUT DID NOT FLIP OVER OR NOSE IN, SO THE DAMAGE IS VERY, VERY REPAIRABLE !!

THE 0-360 180 H.P. ENGINE WHICH HAD A PROP STRIKE, WAS REMOVED TO RETRIEVE THE AIRPLANE FROM THE BACK COUNTRY, AND IT IS NOT INCLUDED.

INCLUDED WITH THE PROJECT ARE:

ALL AIRFRAME ITEMS (FUSELAGE, WINGS, CONTROL SURFACES, ALL 3 GEAR, COMPLETE INSTRUMENTATION, COWLING, ETC.

NOT SHOWN IN PHOTOS, BUT ALSO INCLUDED ARE: ENGINE MOUNT, CARB AIR BOX AND BAFFLING.

THE LANDING GEAR SUSTAINED THE MOST DAMAGE, AS IT SPLAYED THE MAIN LEGS OUTWARD, AND THESE WILL REQUIRE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT (I HAVE SEEN THIS GEAR AVAILABLE CHEAP FROM FLOAT EQUIPPED HUSKY'S THAT DON'T USE IT)

THE CLEVELAND WHEELS AND BRAKES AND 8:50X6 TIRES ARE UNDAMAGED

THE SCOTT TAILWHEEL ASSEMBLY IS UNDAMAGED

THERE IS SOME DAMAGE TO THE LOWER COWL METAL, BUT IT IS FAR FROM DESTROYED

THE FIBERGLASS LOWER NOSEBOWL HAS SOME REPAIRABLE CRACKING

THE UPPER COWL PIECES AND NOSEBOWL SHOW NO DAMAGE

ALTHOUGH THE FIREWALL ITSELF SHOWS NO DAMAGE, THERE IS OF COURSE DAMAGE TO THE FORWARD BELLY, BUT SINCE THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE HUSKY IS SIMPLE TUBING, WITH SCREWED-ON SHEET METAL COVERING, THE REPAIRS HERE WILL BE STRAIGHTFORWARD

THE DAMAGE ON THE SIDES SEEMS TO ONLY BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE MAIN GEAR BEING SPLAYED OUT, AND DOES NOT GO UP AS FAR AS THE RIGHT DOOR OR EITHER SIDE OPENABLE WINDOW.

THE RIGHT DOOR CLOSES AND LATCHES OK

THE GREAT NEWS IS THAT THE UPPER CABIN, INCLUDING THE WING ATTACH POINTS, THE OVERHEAD CROSS TUBE, THE WINDSHIELD SUPPORT TUBES, ETC. DO NOT SEEM TO BE DAMAGED.

I HAVE SOLD SEVERAL OTHER REBUILDABLE HUSKY'S, AND THEY HAVE ALL HAD DAMAGE TO THE OVERHEAD TUBES, SO THIS WAS A WELCOME SURPRISE !!

THE FUSELAGE DOES NOT SEEM TO HAVE ANY DAMAGE, BELLY OR OTHERWISE, AFT OF THE FORWARD SIDE WINDOW FRAME !!

ALL OF THE AFT CABIN AND TAIL SEEMS STRAIGHT, WITH GOOD TIGHT FABRIC, NO TWIST OR SAG !!

THE LEFT WING WAS NOT DAMAGED IN THE INCIDENT, AND HAS ONLY SOME SCRAPES AND DINGS FROM HANDLING. BOTH OF THE LEFT LIFT STRUTS ARE UNDAMAGED, AND EVEN THE TIP AND STROBE ARE OK !!

THE RIGHT  WING IS WRINKLED UP ABOUT MID-SPAN, AND BOTH LIFT STRUTS ON THE RIGHT SIDE ARE BENT. THE INBOARD SECTION AND TANK AREA, ALONG WITH THE ATTACH POINTS ALL LOOK OK. THE FIBERGLAS TIP IS ONLY CRACKED. 

THE INTERIOR IS GOOD, AND THE DASH IS COMPLETE WITH ALL FLIGHT AND ENGINE INSTRUMENTATION, SWITCHES, C.B.'S, ETC. NO AVIONICS ARE INCLUDED.

THIS AIRPLANE IS SOLD WITH COMPLETE LOGBOOKS SINCE NEW, AND AN FAA BILL OF SALE, SO REGISTERING IT IN YOUR NAME WILL BE EASY AND PAINLESS.

LOCATED IN A STORAGE BARN IN BOISE. IDAHO, WE WILL PAY THE STORAGE FEES FOR 30 DAYS AFTER THE END OF THIS AUCTION.

THE ENGINE THAT WAS REMOVED FROM THIS AIRPLANE, AN 0-360A1P 180 H.P. LYCOMING WILL BE AVAILABLE SEPERATLY IN IT'S OWN E-BAY AUCTION STARTING MONDAY FOR $8,995.  OF COURSE WE WILL GLADLY COMBINE AUCTIONS.

DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY FOR A "QUICK-BUILD" KIT FOR A GREAT BUSH PLANE THAT WILL BE WORTH MANY TENS OF THOUSANDS MORE THAN YOU INVEST IN IT !!

GOOD BIDDING !!!!

 

 

 

 

AS WENTWORTH AIRCRAFT IS LOCATED IN MINNESOTA, NOT……BOISE IDAHO…..…….. WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PERSONALLY ASSIST WITH THE REPAIR OR MOVING OF THIS AIRPLANE SORRY.

WENTWORTH AIRCRAFT DOES NOT OBTAIN REPAIR ESTIMATES, AS WE DO NOT REPAIR ANY OF OUR AIRPLANES. WE ONLY FACILITATE THE SALE OF REBUILDABLE AIRCRAFT TO THOSE DESIRING TO SAVE MONEY OR HAVE MORE AIRPLANE THAN OTHERWISE POSSIBLE FOR THE MONEY.

REPAIR OF ANY AIRCRAFT WILL DEPEND ON MANY FACTORS, SUCH AS AVAILABILITY OF USED PARTS, LABOR RATE OF THE REPAIR FACILITY, FAMILIARITY WITH THE AIRCRAFT, ETC. AND WE WOULD NEVER PRESUME TO ESTIMATE THIS NUMBER FOR A BUYER. BEWARE OF THOSE WHO OBVIOUSLY GIVE UNREALISTICALLY LOW "ESTIMATES" FOR THE REPAIR OF THE DAMAGED AIRCRAFT THEY SELL.

THIS ITEM IS BEING SOLD WITH A LOW RESERVE, THEREFORE WE FULLY EXPECT THIS LISTING WILL SELL TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER AT THE CLOSE OF THIS AUCTION, SO BID EARLY AND BID HIGH. THERE WILL BE NO CHANCE TO BUY THIS ITEM LATER!!

AS WE SET OUR BUY-IT-NOW SO LOW, MANY OF OUR AIRPLANES SELL BY THIS METHOD BEFORE THE END OF THE AUCTION. DONT WAIT TOO LONG HOPING TO SNIPE IT AT THE END, AND BE DISAPPOINTED !

WENTWORTH AIRCRAFT INC IS THE #1 VOLUME SELLER IN THE USED AIRCRAFT MARKET!

WE ARE THE REAL BRICK AND MORTAR WENTWORTH AIRCRAFT YOU HAVE SEEN ADVERTISED ON PAGE 6 OF TRADE-A-PLANE, AT OUR BOOTHS AT OSHKOSH, SUN-AND-FUN, AOPA, AND ELSEWHERE FOR OVER 20 YEARS !!!!

WE HAVE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF SATISFIED CUSTOMERS OVER THE LAST 20 YEARS, SO WHEN YOU BUY AN ITEM THROUGH EBAY FROM US, YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT WE WILL LIST ALL ITEMS AS ACCURATELY AS POSSIBLE, AND THAT WE WILL ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS TRUTHFULLY.

PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS THROUGH THE LISTING(ASK SELLER A QUESTION), BECAUSE THESE QUESTIONS GET ANSWERED IN A MORE TIMELY MANNER.

PLEASE DON'T ASSUME. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE ABOUT ANY FACET OF ONE OF OUR LISTINGS, PLEASE ASK !

SO THAT ALL BIDDERS HAVE THE SAME INFORMATION,WE PREFER NOT TO ANSWER DETAIL QUESTIONS BY PHONE. OUR PHONE SALES STAFF HAS NO DIRECT KNOWLEDGE OF THE ITEMS ON EBAY.

DUE TO THE AUCTION FORMAT, IT WOULD NOT BE FAIR FOR THE HIGH BIDDER NOT TO BUY THE ITEM LISTED, SO TREAT YOUR BID LIKE A HANDSHAKE!!

YOUR BID IS NOT A RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL, BUT RATHER A CONTRACT TO BUY OUR AIRPLANE AT YOUR BID PRICE

SO BE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION, AND FUNDSIN PLACE.

A NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT OF $2,000 IS DUE WITHIN 72 HOURS OF THE BID CLOSING. WE PREFER PAYPAL FOR THIS DEPOSIT, BUT IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH PAYPAL, LET US KNOW, AND WE WILL HELP YOU FIND AN ALTERNATIVE.

THE BALANCE OF THE PAYMENT IS DUE WITHIN 7 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF BID CLOSE. THESE FUNDS CAN BE BY WIRE TRANSFER, BANK OR CASHIERS CHECK, CASH, OR ANY COMBINATION. FULL PAYMENT IS DUE BY TIME STATED, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOU HAVE VIEWED THE AIRCRAFT. BID ACCORDINGLY.

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AT THIS LISTING, AND BE SURE TO CLICK "SEE SELLERS OTHER AUCTIONS" OR SEARCH WENTWORTHAIRCRAFTINC IN SELLERS,FOR MORE ITEMS YOU NEED OR WANT!
