The best Pitts model 12 in the World!

After almost 40 years in the aerobatic aircraft business, and having sold over 450 aircraft, I can honestly say that this is probably the most beautifully-made aircraft I have seen. The builder is a leading UK architect, and the quality of its build is a testament to his extraordinarily high standards! It is to the latest specification with shorter fuselage and wings and larger ailerons. It was judged the best UK home-built aircraft in 2017.

First flown in July 2017, and total time since new on airframe 115 hours. MTV-9-250 propeller and M 14 PF engine135 hours since new. Propeller life is “on condition”. The aircraft will come with a new UK permit to fly valid to April 2025. We supplied the M 14 PF engine which we overhauled to perfect zero-time condition giving 426 dynamometer-recorded horsepower. Very light – only 695 kg, including oil and unusable fuel so amazing performance. Full dual controls and interchangeable single and two seat canopies. Special carbon fibre seats and Hooker ratchet harnesses front and rear. All hoses braided Aeroquip. No damage history.

Extras include a very good smoke system; Trig VHF and transponder; Kanardia coupled AIA/GPS/IAS/altimeter; GN S 2000 GPS; full-flow oil filter. Please look at the photographs for the quality of the aircraft!

Asking GBP £199,950 (approximately US 254,000/Euro 235,000 today) no VAT. Current build price in USA $450,000! Very genuine reason for sale. Part exchange considered for classic or prestige car.
