Lazair for sale in California

Lazair Parts for sale

Postby rayjb60 » Mon Dec 06, 2004 4:15 pm

Im passing along some info on a Lazair for sale in California by a Pat Mitchell.

He is asking around $1000 and sounds like it will not take much to get it flying again. Some minor recovering work on an aileron and engine tuneup.

It must go to a person who wants to maintain and fly it, not for parts, as it is a very viable craft, and perhaps there is a little sentimental value there for Pat.

I'd recommend someone scooping up this good deal immediately before the opportunity is missed.

I'd buy it myself if I didnt already have a couple aircraft.

Here is his email.

$1000 is a great price for the plane especially if it comes with the trailer. From the looks of these pictures the plane may need a bit more than a quick dust-off to get it flying. The covering looks pretty bad on the outer wing bays.

Yep, covering is shot. Notice how it's lifting off the ribs. The D-cells also have some pretty good oxidation probably through the alclad layer.

Yep, at least a partial recovering is in order here, if thats the worst of it.

Needs some TLC alright, and a washing.....its covered in desert dust.....maybe a wash will reveal a better looking Alcad than it appears to be in the picture.

Mine gets dusty like that to, here in California.....a rinse makes it look 100% better.

But where on earth could you get a real nice, strong aircraft for $1000

Someone is going to be a happy camper when they are flying around knowing they didnt break the bank to have so much fun and freedom.

I contacted Pat and asked for more information... He wrote back and stated that he wants to sell to someone who will restore her, not part her out... I wrote back with my aviation history and assurance that I wanted to restore and fly the Lazair... Never heard back from him... Guess it's not really for sale...

Oh well, What can be said for an owner who lays his wings directly on sticks and crap ! That's a very good indicator of the overall mentality ! Too bad for this Lazair !

I spoke with him as well, and he is reluctant to part with her, for sentimental reasons.

But rest assured he wants her to go to a person that will appreciate and fly her, and if he even gets a hint of the word PARTS he will run.

I dont blame him, I would not want to see her lost for parts.

You just need to be very sincere and honest with him.....he can detect BS a mile away.

He would have sold her to me, but I already had just come home with mine a couple weeks earlier.

I want to help him get her to a person who wants to fly her, has the skills to maintain her, and enjoy all she has to offer.

How would you feel if YOU had to sell YOUR Lazair someday....you wouldnt want her to end up as beer cans, or give her away for a song only to have someone turn around and sell her for $4500.

I think we can all relate.

Just be persistant and honest....maybe its a test of your intentions B)

I too offered to buy it and never heard back from him. I've been in Lazairs since 81' and assured him of my utmost honorable intensions, but never heard one word back. If he posts it for sale, then sell it man! He has his buttons and so do I. I don't want to deal with the goof ball if he's that attached to his plane. But how could he be if he treat it like he does...lying in the sticks speaks volumes to me. That sort of treatment doesn't add up to what he claims he feels for that plane. He in fact truely needs to sell it to someone who WILL treat it better that that.
