This unique vintage classic plane only burns 23 liters of fuel per hour, an excellent choice in today’s world of high fuel prices !
In 1989 this Sperling was totally rebuilt in the Netherlands in cooperation with and under supervision of the well-known aircraft maintenance company Wings Over Holland. Certificate of Airworthiness was submitted by Air Service Klausheide. This company fulfilled the annual inspections until May 2012. From that year onwards, Wings Over Holland has taken care of all maintenance and inspections. Each year D-ENZE passes its Certificate of Airworthiness inspection with flying colours.
Over the last few years the owner had the engine top-overhauled. With 265 hours since this top-overhaul, all cylinders show compressions of more than 78. The generator was overhauled and a new voltage regulator installed. Magnetos were overhauled recently and new sparkplugs installed. Original fuel lines which required regular replacement were removed. New Teflon fuel lines were installed which need no attention or maintenance. Brakes and suspension were renewed and a new Dry-Fit battery was installed.
D-ENZE is equipped and certified for glider-towing and the hook is fully operational. Release handle is located near the left-hand seat.
Radio complies with the modern demands of 8.33 channel spacing and the transponder is of the Mode-S type allowing operation in the strictest environments.
Interior is in grey fabric and in exceptionally good condition. Seat pockets allow for storage and ample room for weekend bags is available behind the seats.
