Brought to the USA in 2003 to the tune of $178,500 and needing an engine overhaul.
Over $200,000 spent on it as it entered service in Mojave, CA.
This was purchased directly from NDN Aircraft in 2003, have tons of receipts and email correspondence.
This is an Experimental aircraft, in the Exhibition sub-category.  The airworthiness certificate never expires, the plane gets a condition inspection (an annual but the A&P doesn’t have to be an IA) every year, just like any other plane.
Logs start in 2004 when imported to the USA, Have documents from NDN aircraft that they can’t find the logs.  Have tons of paperwork from NDN regarding the aircraft and it’s being sent to the USA. Engine and prop were overhauled here. (Have receipts).
Training and delivery available.


Next Condition inspection due June 2018, all compressions 78/80, fly it home today.
All aluminum, many parts are Piper; (landing gear, gauges, etc), easy to get parts.
