Hey Callum,

Check out Tropair (http://www.tropair.com/g-axnx.html) they have a Cessna 182 145 per tacho plus landing and VAT (I think) landing at Biggin is around 20 with the following spec:

Specification:
Date of construction 1969
Engine Teledyne Continental O-470R 230hp with constant speed prop.
Max authorised Takeoff weight 2900 (lbs)
145mph indicated Airspeed
Equipped with Bendix King Nav Com & Garmin GNS 430
Long range tanks 66 Imp Galls. (300ltrs)
Personnal Location Beacon for foreign trips


G-AXNX although an early model is in superb condition and very well equipped .Re sprayed a couple of years ago and new leather interior in 2005. A very good load lifter and good turn of speed make this aircraft ideal for those day trips to France and the Channel Islands. A real pleasure to fly and with no restrictions on pilot hours subject to a thorough check ride. The Aircraft is rented out at 145.00 per tacho hour wet NO VAT plus landing fees.

Hope this is of some help?

Tom

The Tropair 182 was sold to Hungary recently so cross that one off your list. It may still be on their website but has definitely gone. :{

Stretching the geographics a bit but West London Aero Club at White Waltham have a 182S or, stretching further, The Pilot Centre - Denham Aerodrome (http://www.egld.com/tpc) have a fixed gear and a retract.

Ohh noo about Tropair.

I think they are about the only people who do a/c hire @<hidden> Biggin Hill. There are a few C172's about if your interested?

A friend of mine in the US has a Cessna 182 that he would lease to you if you wanted to form a group and could guarantee some minimum hours :ok:

I needed a "proper" 4 seater to rent at 2 days notice last year. The Pilot Centre (http://www.egld.com/tpc) could not have been more helpful - especially as I haven't been a member there for some years.

Also I doubt you'll beat their hourly rate.

Stapleford have a really really clean 182, not many pilots know about it but it is available for self hire.

Oh and it will be a FREE landing when returning home. (As they operate a zero cost landing fee to ALL home based a/c.

:ok:
