CESSNA FRA150L - Aerobat
As I have finished building my Vans RV7 I have decided to sell my Cessna 150(Evy). Evy would make a great first time or group aircraft, she is very tidy and very well maintained. She has a new C of A and a set of Cambrai Covers. She is currently located at Popham in Hampshire
My Cessna 150 is famous!!!They airbrushed the registration and my friend Richard (the passenger) out but this is my Cessna 150 featured on the front of Gleims 2005 Edition of Private Pilot.

Exterior ConditionAs you can see from all the pictures of Evy the paintwork is in excellent condition. As you will see from the pictures I have really looked after her and it has really paid off as the paintwork is not far off like it was when it was new! Possibly better than it was when the aircarft was new.
InteriorMost of the interior plastic panels were replaced when the aircarft was painted and overhalled. The seats were replaced and recovered. The carpet was renewed.
AvionicsThe avionics were overhalled and a new Garmin 250XL was fitted.
When refurbished the instrument panel plastic was replaced with black.
EngineI have had all new cylinders fitted. The starter has also been replaced with the B&C lightweight unit - a common mod (my engineer was suprised the original was still on!).
OtherComes with a full set of Cambrai Covers - full fuse, wings, empannage, and wheels. The covers are what has keep the paintwork and interior in such good condition. She is kept outside!!

Some more pictures of Evy.
The price of the aircraft is £25'000. This will not be the cheapest Cessna 150 you will find but you will be hard pushed to find one in this condition. If you are comparing aircraft and consider purchasing one to update yourself - For example the avionics update cost £2'384, the new paint work cost £5'000. So when you are looking at an aircraft, think about if you want to update it what it would cost agains one already updated!!
