Default GLAC For Sale

All,

I just completed the annual and test flew today. Wonderful flying aircraft. Gave it a good work out in the Acro Box. Flys hands off. Just a delight to fly. You can contact John directly or call me. I have photos in electronic format.

1980 Great Lakes, Serial Number 834 for sale. This beautiful 'Lakes is painted red with blue & white trim, sometimes listed in the sales brochure as the starburst design. The airframe underwent complete rebuild by Centennial Aircraft Services, (Waco Classic's shop) in late 2012. The engine was rebuilt by Central Cylinder Service, Omaha, Nebraska. Avionics include a Bendix/King KLX-135A GPS/Comm, PS Engineering 1000 II Intercom, STX 165 Transponder, and JPI EDM 700 engine monitor.

N-5761Z is a low time airframe, 1,083 hours total time. Engine time since major overhaul is 21 hours, and the propeller has 81 hours in service since manufacture by Hartzell. Both sides of the fuselage are metalized from stations 25 to 73. The remainder of the airframe is covered in Ceconite 102.

The airplane underwent a thorough Annual Inspection June 2014, and is ready for the summer flying season!
Great Lakes Aircraft is proud to offer this fine airplane for sale: $124,500.
Please call (719) 648-5021, or email: Johnaduncan@msn.com.

Jamie,

Looking really good and will have to come up when it's assembled and ready for flight. We have a Great Lakes here on the field also.

Cheers, Hans

Looking great! Any of the ones you’re doing for Duncan still going to get the Warner? One of the new Warner’s or a rebuilt old one?

How did you guys get all those? Are they all factory ships? Or some homebuilts?
John is a great guy. He gave me a ride once in his Great Lakes.

N707RM and N80AM will be flat motors. Both Cert. N3812F will be the round motor 165 and will be done under FAA 337. Will remain Cert.

N80AM and N3812F were both damaged. There are three more in Texas and one in southern CO. getting repaired. I'm working with them both to get them back in the air. All Cert. People keep twisting them up on landing. Stay off the brakes Off to the paint both again

I love the GL. Easiest handling taildragger on the planet. In the 70's my AME was a dealer and he sent me to Enid to pick one up. Got to meet Doug Champlin and his crew of builders. Glad to see the interest in these airplanes.

iowaboy I second that.
You said you are going to build a Greats Lakes Biplane. And as a LSA.
Wow, what are your plans to reduce weight? What engine are planning on using?
Just like to see your action plan.
Go for it and keep us posted with photos etc.

Great flying aircraft. Just a nice fit between a Pitts S2 and Stearman. Add a round motor and you have a classic.

Dennis,
Here is what I am shooting for.
Single place, no front cockpit seat, no front cockpit panel, no front cockpit stick, no front cockpit rudder pedals
No wheel pants
Original factory ship flew on 90 hp. Weighed 970 lbs So 115-125 Lyc power, wood prop.
J-3 Cub type engine cowling
Light covering
Light weight starter and battery, no generator
Just build it light as I can.
Hand held radio
No lights naturally.
I have loved the Great Lakes since a teen when I built a control line model, My health only allows me a sport pilot lic. now. So I am going to try to do it.
I am going to New Mexico to get a welded up fuselage next week.
I hope I can do it and get it done.

Mike
