An airframe overhaul completed 200 hours ago, already has L59 (long range) tip tanks, a 100 hour inspection is due and is synonymous w/ an annual (w/ experimental aircraft like the L39, an AMP can perform the 100 hour inspection), the Garmin CNX80 GPS/Nav/Com I was never installed because it was not approved at the time but the kit was purchased – probably want to replace with the GNX80.

New fuel cells, brakes, tires, battery, etc. at time of restoration, complete military logs. Longranger 230 liter tip tanks (optional)
