Are you paying hanger rent month after month, year after year on an aircraft that you do not fly? Or do you have a plane stashed away in your shed or pole barn just collecting dust and mice?
The longer an aircraft sits the less it is worth. The engine cylinders develop rust in just a few weeks and before long the internal parts begin to rust resulting in pits in bearing surfaces and more. Continental and Lycoming both have a life limit between overhauls of 12 years. Fuel systems need to be rebuilt, hoses rot and have a life limit of just 7 years, ignition systems corrode, tires go flat and weather crack. Paint and fabric deteriorate, and metal rusts. Instruments and radios mysteriously go bad. The longer an aircraft sits the more economically unfeasible it becomes to repair and becomes useless for much of anything but parting out. The longer you let it set the more value it loses. Stop throwing your hard earned money away!

Furnish me with photos of exterior. I prefer metal skin planes, the older the better, but will consider anything. I do not need any of the gauges or engines, but if that is what you have to offer I will consider it.

I will be glad to call and talk with you if you email me your phone number. Due to so much spam on Craigslist, I am only excepting email through Craigslist but will be glad to contact any and all legitimate aircraft owners.

Most airports have at least four or five aircraft that haven't flown in a year or more, many for 10 or 15 years.
You can help the pilots who do fly that can't find a hanger near them because of these non-flying aircraft just wasting space. The pilots that own some of these aircraft have spent often 2 or more times what their aircraft is now worth in hanger rent and all the while their aircraft keeps depreciating!

Plane need not be airworthy, please do not let it go to waste.
