Hi Nick,
I am Herman Visser (Afrikaans) and a new member of microlighters. I am almost 60 and I am a student pilot (LSA) in Cato Ridge.
I love this Explorer and I want to ask you in all honesty what the best price for this plane would be. If I can reach your price I would love to arrange to come and see it and fly it, for this will be my Baby until I die.
I am not trying to make you bend over backwards for me. I am only asking. If it cannot happen it is just meant to be, but I really like the looks of this machine.
Please let me know.
Thanks
Herman

Hi Herman,

Bly om te hoor ons is amper ewe oud. Ek is 63. Soos jy kan sien was die vliegtuig eintlik vir my seun gebou. Eerstens om hom meer te leer oor vliegtuig konstruksie en tweedens om ure te bou vir sy kommersiele vlieglisensie.

Aan die einde van die dag het hy 'n werk in Botswana gekry en nie veel met die vliegtuig kon vlieg nie. Hy vlieg dit net as hy kom kuier.

As ek eerlik moet wees dan sal die regte prys vir die vliegtuig R375000 plus wees. Ek het ook met Stefan van KFA in komati poort gesels wat geneig was om te dink ek vra te min.

Die een wat die vliegtuig koop kry 'n winskoop.

Ek is baie lief vir die vliegtuigie en hoop regtig sy kry 'n goeie huis.

Herman baie dankie vir die belangstelling.

Groete

Nick

Sorry for the hijack. Herman. Ek het hierdie vliegtuig sterk oorweeg so i rukkie gelede. Ek het toe i nuwe Explorer by die fabriek bestel
aangesien ek baie extras wou he.

Ek kan jou verseker jy sal nooit weer teen hierdie prys so i vliegtuig bekom nie-- ek weet wat betaal ek vir i nuwe een. Ek is 68 jaar oud
en ek dink vir ons ou manne wat wil veilig vlieg, is die Explorer i uitstekende keuse. Groete. Hennie van Zyl

Hello Nick,

As ek geweet het die vliegtuig kom op het ek nooit 'n explorer begin bou nie, maar vir een of ander rede kan ons nie in die toekoms sien nie.

Baie mooi vliegtuig en absoluut 'n winskoop.

Ek glo hy gaan baie gou 'n ander huis kry.

Groete daar.

Daar is seker ander vliegtuie wat ook kwalifiseer, MAAR om jou vraag te antwoord:

1) Dit is maklik hanteerbaar.
2) Dit het 'n baie lae staakspoed
3) Die prys is billik
4) Rotax 912s is 2000 tbo
5) Diens is plaaslik (Petit -KFA)
6) Indien jy eendag wil verkoop, is daar 'n mark vir die Explorer
7) Dit is STOL
8) Dit het baie spasie- en pakplek
9) 5 uur range

en- op my ouderdom- dit is lig genoeg om by die hangar in en uit te sleep. ##

The Cruise should be between 95-105mph in this one because of the older cowl there is more drag and I do not see fairings, also the nosewheel adds about 10kg that is unneccesary and adds drag.
The stall should be about 35mph at 600kg
VNE is 140mph
Fuel burn at 100 should be about 15-16l/hr
Range at 100mph@16l/hr = 6hr's and 625sm
