currently have c /n 096, based here in UK.
stored in good condition, previously flown for many years, UK and France. all restored, and original, except for re-cover and extra altimeter, and fitted full harnesses. has a C90-14f, don't have electrics, except occasional battery radio: Continental engine has Merville prop.
great little classic aeroplane, colour mainly white, red flashes. has a host of spares, and a good pedigree, ex- St.Cyr (Fr), and based mainly with the Redhill Tiger Club, England.
bought this when our Airline retired it's Dakotas (was co-pilot), to stay current on own taildragger, and get to some rallies - all good. sorts out yr flying, careful / accurate flying required, giving rewards.

I was the owner of the #94 of the series.
The engine was then a Lycoming 90. The model designation was then SIPA S.903
It was a wonderful plane, but quite delicate to pilot and to land in windy conditions.
The large fowlers allowed a landing distance well under 100m.
Some acft are still flying in UK.
