If you can find a better late model non-turbo 206 then you should snap it up. These aircraft are prized all over the world where the runways don’t look like runways, and there is a job to do. The legacy models are light, this example only weighs 2031lbs and they don’t guzzle 22 US gallons p/h of fuel to keep themselves running cool like the new build Turbo Lycoming variants. The Continental IO-520-F burns in around the 14-15 US Gallon mark at speeds slightly better than a 182. The next annual is due March 2022, the compressions this annual were 76, 76, 72, 78, 78, 78. The Airframe has 3298hrs TTAF, with 234hrs SMOH and 159hrs SPOH. Delivered with fresh FAA IFR checks complete.
The magic of the 206 is in the undercarriage and huge span flaps, which allow it to operate from the most marginal of runways. This aircraft was originally a corporate aircraft, where it did stints in Europe and was in Africa for a time before coming back to the UK for pleasure flights. The aircraft was extensively refurbished from 2008 and flown in 2019. It has clocked up 40hrs since rebuild and has been rigged by one of the top Cessna Specialists in the world to a digital degree perfect standard. Take off performance is staggering, flies hands off straight and true handling like the Range Rover of the air that it is.
The avionics have been extensively upgraded, all the old wiring has been carefully removed and a custom made loom fitted. The panel now features:
We have gone to the ends of the earth to make the interior second to none.
The logbook entries for all the work we have done to N206UF runs into a long read, but there is not one inch of the aircraft we do not know first hand. Good stuff that will make anyone smile:
We have all the logs scanned in PDF and have maintenance summary sheets for genuinely interested parties. We expect the buyer will have done their research and understand the scarcity of aircraft like this. Once N206UF is sold it would be impossible for us to replace it. We are happy to chat to anyone about the aeroplane, the price is €200k Euro (Plus VAT if Applicable) and no offers will be accepted. Exporting the aircraft worldwide in a container is easily arranged.
