Stripping New Challenger Air-frame, 618 Rotax & Accessories- For sale as spares

Re: Kitfox no:649 / ZU-IHM

Okay, nou voel ek nie so kak nie oor die status van my aerie. I took your advice & dropped Stefan a mail, so let's see what he says when he gets back. If not, I'm going to find someone else but I'm going to get that Challenger flying. So let's see who gets into the air first. I'll bet a bottle of yo...

Re: Challenger II LSS (Brand New 0 Hrs) c/w Recon 618 Rotax

Hi Guys, From the beginning Jean said to me that I shouldn't sell this aerie & I just read his post where he said it's Jammer I'm selling, so in hindsight, maybe a share deal would be a better alternative if someone is interested. I'll be honest, work doesn't allow me a lot of spare time which was t...

Re: Challenger II LSS (Brand New 0 Hrs) c/w Recon 618 Rotax

Hi Vernon, It was a straight swop with Jean for one of the original Kit Foxes they had brought into SA initially, so it was more about a love for flying & the aircraft than just a commercial consideration (Something most so called "AVIATORS" today know about. My old man passed away last year & I've ...

Re: Kitfox no:649

Howzit Jean, Believe me there's no many real gentleman left in this world today & you richly deserve the accolade. As for selling or not, I'm trying to avoid the decision by getting the Challie airborne first. I'm taking the motor to Flo Momberg tomorrow (He was recommended by Comet Aviation as the ...

Re: Kitfox no:649

Goose, Baie jammer, but Jean's deal was simply too good. Drop me your e-mail address & I'll send you some pic's of the Challenger. Jean reckons it do close to 105 MPH with the 618 I'm putting on. You should really see Jean's operation, it's the most professional I've seen in the Sport Aircraft build...

Re: Challenger 11 503 DC-DI for sale

Hi Guys, I'm new to Microlighters, but have flown 3 different Challengers over the years, including ZU-BOC which I helped my Dad build. It's quite a coincidence, but I know Peter Gaddin well & had no idea he flew a Challenger for fun. I've also just done a full swop of a unfinished Kitfox 2 for a br...
