FYI, I purchased the 415-C from a previous member. I am also an A&P and PP but have not flown for 30 years back when I owned a 150L. It doesn't have rudder pedals and I didn't want them so I would have more room for my long legs. It has less than 1,400 hrs TT and is in great shape with good paint. It had once been on skis. It once sat for 18 years with 3 hours on it during that time. It has the aircraft and engine logs all the way back to 1946 with the test flight sign off from the company. Came with the original operators manual. The previous owner did a lot of work on it when he bought it and included a GPS, headsets, portable backup radio, canopy cover, and some tools and odds and ends. I had to replace the nose tire and tube and we drained the fuel since it sat for 2 years. The previous owner was great and very helpful.

Purchased a 46 415-C with a C-75 this month from a very nice guy in Indiana. He helped me get it ready for a ferry flight to get an annual. I need 5 hours with a CFI for insurance and hope to be up and running soon.

Good deal! Glad to see some coupes will be going back in the air amidst the stories of those leaving the air permanently. We have some pretty sharp technical experts in the group!

Glad to find this club. My name is Dave Smith. I live in Omaha, Nebraska. My father, Richard Smith of Hutchinson, Kansas is an AP/AI. As a youngster I can remember waking early to drag a GA plane that had most likely been ground looped back to the abandoned naval base South of Hutchinson where dad had a small shop. We'd spend a few weeks or months rebuilding, then fly the plane for a while until it sold and then do it all again.
Later in life dad bought an Alon and I really enjoyed that plane. It was stable, docile and a hoot to fly with the windows down. Dad doesn't fly much these days but I still have the bug. Last year I came across N99796 for sale. It had belonged to Gerald Horn of Ypsilanti, Michigan. Gerald had passed in 2007 and his son had kept the plane garaged until 2018 when he decided to sell it.
I am in the process of rebuilding N99796, a 1946, 415C, with Dad's help and hope to have an AC sometime in 2020. I'll fly it as an LSA. I'm sure I will have inquiries as I work through the process of rebuilding the plane and getting qualified for my Sport Pilot's license. I want to tank you all in advance for your help in this regard.
