    It's probably the one certified plane I'd break my "no more certified planes" rule for.

    But only the wings are wood.

    I've seen wings pulled of a flying 14-13 that had so much root rot there were attach fitting bolts that were an inch or more from any wood. It had only been in Oregon for 2 years and AZ before that so it might have had good spars. Then again, the wing work needed may be the reason they were selling it.

    unless one is a certified IA or knows one and is an A&P be very careful....The state of the aging GA fleet leaves much to be desired, and the liability/income conscience mechanics have no reason to risk their license and livelihood to save you a little money. I have seen good aircraft scrapped for what I consider dubious corrosion issues.

    A few guesses....


    1. Could it have a Geo Metro engine with a Rotax gearbox adapted to it?

    2. Maybe it has a Rotax and he's throwing in a Metro?

    3. He has more than one plane posted... maybe the Rotax was a carry-over from another ad that was copy-and-pasted, but he missed deleting the Rotax reference?

    4. Maybe it's a twin-engine airplane?


    You're right, that is a beautiful FlyBaby!
