Bolkow BO209-160RV D-EFJG
Flight instructors who have flown the Bolkow Monsun are universal in their praise for the handling of this West German mid century marvel. The current owners searched long and hard for this very model with the fuel injected engine, VP prop and retractable front gear. The aircraft has very low airframe time of just 1750hrs, and has been maintained by Bolkow specialists. Incredible engineering allows the wings to fold, nose to retract and the aircraft to be towed by road if the need arises! The engine has done 547hrs SMOH in Sept 2004, the prop has 264hs SMOH in Nov 2009 and the aircraft is now on a Self Declared Maintenance Program (SDMP). Avionics are King Digital featuring a HSI, EDM engine monitor and Mode S. In flight the engine is smooth and strong, CHT/EGT's all even. The Monsun is aerobatic, and we can give you a PDF of the POH to have a read a bit more about that! Viewings are welcome for this wonderful rarity, and a test flight with our instructor would be a pleasure.
