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.
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.
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.
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
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.
ailerons for exceptional roll control.
Fighter plane-style stick grip with
switches for comm, trim and autopilot.
5-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.
