CH701 Write-off .

Posted on October 27, 2009 at 4:10pm 4 Comments

It looks like my CH701 will be written off so I am wondering if there is a market for serviceable parts. The response to this blog will have a bearing on whether I make an offer for the wreck. The empenage and starboard wing are un-touched and many other parts. Aftar running into a ditch, the front undercarriage, cowling prop & fuselage are beyond economic repair. Don Bowtell 01920464585.

Hi Joseph, with the exception of the tip of the port slat, the wings are serviceable but I am in Hertfordshire, UK.
The plane first flew in 2003 and has done less than 200 hours.
