Cessna R172K Hawk XP

Aircraft description

With a rich history, including a return flight to London for the 2001 London to Sydney Air Race, this 180HP Hawk XP has been meticulously maintained by Horsham Aviation. A full strip and repaint was completed in the original paint scheme, by Aeropaint Australia in 2007 where all windows were also replaced. The aircraft has just rolled out of the hangar, where a fresh annual was just completed.

A host of extras complete this sale including new carpet (not fitted), Internal Flint Aero fuel tanks (90 ltrs total), a standby vacuum system, Rosen sunvisors, 4 place intercom, fuel steps, stainless steel screws & fixtures, GAMI injectors and new rudder cables (for the next annual).
