Cessna 172C N4242C

The early model 172 prior to the introduction of the cuffed leading edge, has very nice in flight handling and is quite a different feeling to fly. The manual flaps are an addition primary flight control in our opinion and can pop the aircraft off the ground, and sit it back on when you most need it. There are lots of videos online of people like CC Pocock really working these early model 172's. This example has had lots of money spend and TLC given to it over the last few years. The engine was overhauled in 2009 and has 187hrs. The airframe is very low time at only 3097hrs and it has the McCauley prop with the EM airfoil which gives it a definite edge on take off. The paint is very good, and always polishes up well. Interior has a nice authentic feel to it, and complements the paint nicely. Previously on the G-Reg as G-ARWO and has been in the UK prior to introduction of VAT, so it is considered VAT paid and in free circulation. Any inspection welcome and delivery is not an issue.
