Salmon Arm Appreciation Day

The weather was just great. Jan gave me a ride on June 24, the parking lot was almost full by the time we got there by 10:30 and the show had already started.

Lots of aircraft were on display.

Jan took many pictures you can see here:

Ross Creek Fly-In July 1.

I had planned on taking that one too, but I had to stay home working on a front wheel bearing on the Yaris. But it seems I did not miss much, as shower after shower kept coming down on the area.

Kamloops Flying Club Fly-In Breakfast, July 8.

I was just having breakfast at home when I remembered that one! I jumped in the Yaris and made it there by 8:20.  (Yaris all fixed now!...)  It was a perfect day to fly, and I would have been up too if I still had wings. I had to leave for home at 9:30, but there were lots of aircraft already and more were still coming in.

(I took some pictures with the iPhone, the quality could be better!)

I had a look at Jan's new aircraft. Nice machine. Too bad he will not be able to fly it this year, going into surgery for his shoulder at the end of July. Good luck, Jan!

More aircraft were still coming in.

That great looking powered glider sure caught my attention! A STEMME S10-VT that came from Kelowna.

Mooney M18-X

While placing the ad a few days ago, I looked at the specs and found that the take-off weight is 1025 lbs, which is less that the maximum allowable for an ultralight!  On the original the take-off weight was only 780 lbs, and the stall speed only 43mph. That would qualify as an ultralight!

Andreasson BA-4B     Final price reduction: $20,000.

The Andreasson BA-4B is a Swedish-designed sport biplane that dates from the mid-1960s.

This BA-4B is an excellent example of the type. It features all-metal construction, superior build craftsmanship, a 0-timed engine, terrific panel and a removable full canopy. It is built for small to medium sized pilots.     The builder, Gerry Theroux, is a retired aircraft maintenance engineer, and his experience with structures and systems on large airliners shows in the build quality and attention to detail that this BA-4B demonstrates.

Aircraft Features :

Lycoming 0-235-L2C 118 hp, O SMOH. Overhaul completed in 2015, engine properly preserved in a heated garage or hangar since then.  Will need proper break-in sequence completed. 2000 hour TBO.  Dual P-Mags allow variable and always optimal ignition timing. This translates to exceptional fuel economy and reliability. The ability to use automotive spark plugs saves even more money over having to use aviation spade plugs.

Oil cooler and remote oil filter. Propeller is also O time SOH.  Trio Avionics EZ-Pilot single axis (roll) autopilot. The EZ-Pilot is slaved to the included Garmin 296 GPS and will intercept and hold a course the pilot selects, or operate autonomously to any heading the pilot selects. It can slave to any GPS featuring standard NMEA data output

Panel mounted Garmin 296 GPS.   An MGL comm radio Mode C transponder. Standard ASI, altimeter, VSL, fuel gauge, and tachometer. Quad gauge for oil pressure and temp, CHT and EGT.  Full electrics with proper wiring and circuit breakers.   Electric pitch trim with electronic position indicator.  Flaperons, which will also work with the EZ pilot.  Adjustable rudder pedals. Cabin heat and cabin vent cooling.

4 full-span ailerons for exceptional roll control.  Fighter plane-style stick grip with switches for comm, trim and autopilot5-point harness.  55 litre fuel tank (14.5 US gal).  Spring steel landing gear, dual brakes and 6.00 x 5 tires.  Full swivel tail wheel.  Wingtip and strobe lights.  Full plans and a set of claw tie-downs

Additionally, the engine needs the initial ground run break-in, plus the standard in-flight break-in to seat the rings and to stabilize oil consumption.

The BA-4B is currently registered as an ultralight aircraft and has not yet flown. As an ultralight, it does not require the standard amateur-built restrictions such as staying within only 25 NM of the home airport for the first 25 hours of flight. The pilot has a lot more freedom to explore the airplane at his or her discretion.

The airplane weighs about 700 lbs empty, and as noted, it will best fit small to medium sized pilots. The rudder pedals are adjustable via turnbuckles, and there is some room for adjustment in the seat

This airplane will have outstanding performance with an excellent power-to- weight ratio, terrific climb and roll rates, and an estimated cruise speed near 150 mph! You won’t find that in other ultralight aircraft.

See this Wikipedia link for the design’s complete history:

Europa Classic - $44,000 CAD OBO

Europa Classic meticulously built by the current owner. This aircraft flies beautifully hands off, is very responsive, light, well balanced and fast, must be flown to be appreciated.

The owner has test flown and checked out multiple Europa owners and can assist with transition training. The A/C is flight proven with over 500 hrs TT and has been flown all over east to west, south to north. Always hangared with no damage history.
