Aviat does not sell S1T kits. You can only buy them certified as far as I know.

They sold a number of kits in the past and I might assume this airplane was built from a factory kit. A friend in Miami built one in the early 80's. Not sure they would sell you one today but they are doing a similar thing for Brownie with the Eagle kits.

See http://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinqu...+S-1T&PageNo=1

Does this airplane have Frise ailerons? I don't see spades which would be the norm for the old symmetrical ailerons. I might know someone interested if it has the old style ailerons.

Looks like a home built T ,will not bring near the money as a factory built one.

I'm in the UK and the potential dramas, hassles and disappointments around importing and getting LAA approval for a homebuilt/Experimental aircraft are HUGE!!! I've had 3 aircraft, including an S-1S and all (UK) homebuilt and fine. But much as I'd love this T and a number of other lovely looking US aircraft, it's a huge risk and potentially ending up with a very expensive static exhibit

This S1T is worth looking at.

Yes it has ailerons same as the S1S but symmetrical wings.

This is honestly a nice looking airplane, but you'd manage expectations better if you advertised (and priced it) as an S-1S. "S-1T" means something very specific, including being factory built with T-style symmetrical ailerons. This airplane is more like an experimental S-1S just with a CS prop. A true S-1T in good shape is quite rare as airplanes go. Homebuilt S-1's are much less so. But it is nice to see a good looking S-1 of any type advertised for sale. Good luck.

Paperwork says it's an S1S, not a T.

Aviat did sell T kits, components actually but it was the same as the S1S kit 10 years earlier. My first T was assembled from factory supplied parts.

How is that possible. The T wings and fuse are different?

The fuselage is different in a factory built version. The wings of a factory T had the first symmetrical aileron design and the solid center section. The first three Homstead T models built in the 70's had the same wings as the S1S being produced at the time. Several sets of symmetrical wings from Aviat have made their way on to S1S airframes. This seems to be an S1T style fuselage with original style S1S wings.

The T model fuselage had the entire wing section, lower and upper wings, moved forward appx 4.5 inches. The Homstead T models had a 12 inch longer (measured from the firewall to the mean line if the dynafocal mounts) engine mount in order for the IO 360 A1D rear mounted governor engine to be installed. By the time Aviat decided to re introduce the T model a front mounted governor version, the AEIO 360 A1E engine, was available. That allowed Aviat to move the engine back five inches. A factory T engine is mounted closer to the firewall to allow a more rearward CG condition for akro. All T's were built originally with the aerobatic Hartzell aluminum constant speed prop.

Looks like this particular airplane started life as an S1S but someone either got some T fuselage drawings or reverse engineered a T model fuselage. Aviat didn't sell T drawings but the fuselage prints have been around for years. Some of the drawings came from Curtis Pitts or Herb Andersen. The T model was certified around the same time as the S1S, S2/S2A. I guess initially Afton and Homestead decided the market wouldn't support two single seat models so the T was not produced. After about 60 S1S's rolled off the line Herb Andersen thought that a revamped T model with the new symmetrical ailerons and front mounted governor engine would spark some new interest in the single place version. He was right because Afton/Aviat built over 60 T models. Herb Andersen also said ''quite a few'' S1S kits and S1T components were sold but the factory didn't keep much of a record of how many parts went out the door.

You should specify the type of crankshaft...as it is a converted IO-360....

Part of the fun of a T is the faster roll rate that the symetircal aeilrons give it.
This thing has flat bottom ones,seems like a s1s with a constant speed prop.
