A major restoration has just been done on this 1998 Diamond HK36TC motorglider after a minor landing accident in Ohio. All life limited repairs have been accomplished so it should be maintenance free for the new owner.
It has 2300 TT and 250 TTE (certified Rotax 912, SN 4.410.963, 10/2012 manufacture date, mid 2013 install date new). The fully feathering propeller is newly overhauled. The canopy was replaced with new as the old one accidentally cracked during transport to NM. You will see me removing the canopy protection for its first flight. A crack in the tail was repaired by a master fiberglass genius Fidel Ramirez of Air One Composites in Moriarity, NM. It has a new right main gear leg and wheel fairing. The other wheel fairings were restored by Fidel to "as new" quality. Inside the cockpit is mostly standard Diamond IFR instruments- working AI, T&B, and DG. The variometer is a Winter TE type. The pitot tube was changed to TE and is new. The manifold pressure gauge is new. It has a KLX-135A GPS/Com and a Bendix KT-76A mode C transponder with certification. PM 500 PS Engineering intercom. All new tires. Current annual by Rick Wright of Copperstate Aero who you will see painstakingly replacing all the fireproof paint on the inside of the cowling. New battery and low fuel pressure sensor. New stainless steel rudder cables that no longer need replacement unless inspection shows an issue. New fuel hoses and field carburetor overhaul and pneumatic balance. New coolant hoses. New left wingtip LED position light. RARE wing-folding kit.
Basically we treated this ship as if we were going to fly it ourselves for many years to come! Please call or write for further information--Russ Hustead, MD, BSEE, CFI/CFIG, Sky King Soaring, Payson, AZ 602 622-2257.
