Description

Classic/XS 35000Reason:
After a long and very tortuous decision I have decided that my medical condition is such that I am hanging up my headset. I will NOT fly again on my licence.
I am an aircraft engineer not a salesman. There are items on my Europa that were planned for this year and enhancements for the future now not to be done by me. It is permitted and flyable (not flown since September 2023) it also can be/is an ongoing project.
I am a retired Flight Engineer and built the aeroplane (one owner) from the start.
It has always been dry hangered at The Enstone Flying Club.
Pricing:
I do not want to waste prospective buyers time and effort or make my anxiety worse. Value is indeterminate as no benchmarks are available but 40 45K are a suggested ballpark figures by other owners.
I m selling very undervalued as, sadly, I am so emotionally absolutely drained I want it gone just too much mental contortions to faff around demonstrating, haggling and bartering collect and NO mucking about drive away on trailer for 35K (Trailer extra)

Cosmetic state:
Needs attention: the only items I did not physically do but got professionals to complete were the finish and upholstery.
Gell coat cracks in places, have repaired some in the past (not in my skill set)
Upholstery needs a little bit of TLC (again not in my skill set)

Jobs I had planned for the future

Oil Thermostat (LAA SM12808)
Water thermostat (LAA SM12915). Includes connection for (fitted) carb heat water supply.
Ignitech complete replacement dual ignition system (LAA SM15703) in bits box
MGL FF4: Fuel flow (one transmitter in bits box) This gauge also gives a second fuel quantity display. (Qty transmitter see note above).
Notes & comments:
The aircraft was built to use MOGAS and the Mod 51 long range tank (this Mod was subsequently not allowed by LAA)
Ooops!! Had wheels-up some time ago. Engine/gearbox shock load checked by Rotax specialist Kevin Dilks of SAS. No faults found.
Complete new prop with Whirlwind blades fitted.
Subsequent prop damaged and blades replaced. Hub overhauled and NDT tested by Airmaster Europe, no faults found. Nylon drive unit checked (damage to drive unit would indicate an excessive load so none had been applied). All Whirlwind blades replaced as a set by the Airmaster factory in New Zealand. Balanced by the European Airmaster agent from Belgium, Dirk Oyen, on the aircraft (He is also a Europa Mono builder/flyer).
Stb Tailplane tight for removal and fitting
Mod 50 needs reworking!
Brakes need bleeding
Stuff: (a van load!!!)
I do not have derigging/rigging equipment. SJ is derigged and rerigged for the LAA Permit once a year with a hoist. This is not needed at other times so no problem, borrowing a dolly from another Mono owner has sufficed when needed in the past.
Always dry hangered
Full covers
Short, cockpit and engine cover
Loads of bit and pieces
Mountains of paperwork and documentation
USB s kicking about my office with up to date, older and long forgotten stuff
Masses of paperwork and documents in my workshop
Original build manuals etc.
Europa Factory Tech Topics??
Manuals for just about everything fitted and more
The aeroplane has not been flown since September 2023
Prospective buyers will need to arrange a for a qualified Europa Monowheel pilot (I am not now flying), and insurance etc. etc.
