Re: Found this Auriga Express for sale

Re: CT for sale!

Is yours the one that was at TDO last summer? I saw it when I was down there, it is a pretty bird. Marshal is coming to help me with my S90 Auriga.

I was not happy with my wing construction so I was able to pick up another wing kit about 5 years ago. It's still a work in progress. I've been th...

All the major aircraft companies and even airlines are investing in research. Ths SP260D is about 350hp, SP200D is about 250hp. I think that once I can stuff enou...

Re: Pre-buy inspection

Thanks Phil. Erik's already given some good info above but one other thing I've heard a lot about checking out are the landing gear and their associated attach points.

Re: Pre-buy inspection

For the engine, refer to your a&p for guidance, as for the airframe, contact Darrell, darrellpeterson@compairtechllc.com or call Composite Aircraft Technology +1-360-864-6271 for an official list. Kevin, the admin here also might have other insights.
