ANOTHER (sigh) guy looking for a 170B

Postby BoisePhil » Wed Apr 11, 2018 1:18 am

Well, I’ve lurked on this site for long enough so I guess I’ll join the feeding frenzy and announce that I’m yet another guy looking for a ‘53-‘56 170B. I want the same things most others want but most important to me is a straight airframe with minimal corrosion, a panel that has either been rebuilt or remains fairly original, NDH or excellent repair work, and a mid to low time engine. Paint is the least important to me. A bonus would be a Sportsman STOL kit. I’m a cash buyer and can travel on short notice anywhere in the country for the right airplane. I live in Idaho and am anxious to join my buddies in the backcountry as well as travel with my wife around the Pacific NW. I’ve been a pilot for 50 years and have finally reached a point where I can realize my dream of ownership. Woo-hoo! Thanks for your consideration. Phil. 208-871-8520. phil4id@gmail.com

It's not (sigh), it's (yay)!

Don't worry or get anxious, you'll find the one you want. It just might take a little while. Take your time and enjoy it.

Well, I tentatively found one! Actually found 4-5 pretty decent ones. If anyone wants to know my method I’ll be glad to share it after I close on my deal at the end of next week.

Phil. :D

The local A/P knew I was looking for a plane 15 years ago and what I was looking for. When he went to a seminar to get his AI renewed found a plane for me from another A/P. You never know when and where you'll find what you are looking for.

That's how I found my airplane. My mechanic called and said "Stop looking, the airplane you want is in for annual and it's for sale."
