Hard to find, clean Midwest plane with only 115 hours on the engine. Around $11,000 in upgraded avionics and features. This extremely low hour engine is worth a lot, an engine overhaul costs $20,000. If you consider the value of the engine and the cost of the upgrades, our asking price is very fair and low compared to others. (There are 9 important facts to consider when looking to buy an older, low cost plane. I made a detailed video for YouTube. It’s available at the top of this page. I think it would be very helpful for anyone) We got this plane as a trade. We do detailed inspections and necessary maintenance on our planes before selling. Nothing major on this plane. Flew several times to check all functions and had fun landing in the grass. Plane starts right up and flies very nicely. Paint is better than most other 150s. Clean glass which is an indication of a hangared airplane. I've noticed a very few minor dings on close examination in the airframe. Other than that, the airframe is in very good condition. There are many important upgrades in the plane. Older radios can be unreliable. This has a newer digital radio and upgraded transponder. 2 place intercom connector so both occupants have communication. Also has ADS-B out installed. So you can fly the plane in any airspace and into any airport without restriction. Plane has upgraded LED landing light. They’re much brighter and very useful in night landings. I keep it on even in the day time in busy areas for safety so others can spot the plane. Upgraded push button start and light weight starter. All 4 cylinder CHT gage - important to manage the engine properly. These upgrades cost $10,000-$11,000. Interior is in clean condition. Nice sheepskin seat covers are very comfortable, you see these in high end planes like Cessna Citation jets. Original seats have some seams coming loose. You’d never notice unless you remove the covers but we want to mention anything we notice. Plane has Continental O-200-A 100HP 4 cylinder carbureted engine. Engine has only 115 hours. Even though these low hours are great, since the overhaul was in 2007 we did a complete inspection to make sure of the condition. Excellent compressions (I’ve updated the photos for you to see). Boroscope internal inspection came clean. Checked the filter and also sent an oil sample to analyze to see the internal condition. Report came clean as well. Engine starts right up and performs very well. Cessna 150 is considered one of the best small airplanes. Great trainer or time builder. Also a very good commuter airplane for 2 people. One of the most economical ways to travel. Even with high fuel prices it cost only around $25 per hour in fuel. Plane has very decent performance. You can fly 600 miles. Can operate in many mountain areas with the ceiling of 15,600 ft. Cruise speed is 125 miles per hour using only 6 gallons of fuel per hour. With larger wings, great slow flight characteristics and low stall speed it is a safe plane as well. Plane needs only 680ft of runway to take off and 360ft for landing. So you can fly in any small airport or even backcountry locations. Don't have the very early logs, but we do have logs for the last 32 years. We did a title search and no accidents reported. No liens or loans. We have all logs for the current engine since it was overhauled which is the most important I think. Great little plane. Probably the lowest time engine in the market today. Also very useful upgrades. Please feel free to contact us with any questions 5 things we do: 1. Arrange a prebuy with a local mechanic or accommodate yours 2.
