Been on the market a little while now in the general 4sale media. Gone are the good old days of AussieJet, was fun many years ago, we had lots of flying for anyone with a plane drivers ticket, GA is all but dead at that level RIP GA:-(

They trying to sell it all as a lot?

Not a lot of value there and what there is, will be offset with removing scrap.

Seems a C441 in photos but not on the list and pretty poor photos (but that could be intentional).

Now that's a bit of a story! There's a few major reasons that don't need to be discussed here but lets just say that the Co was mismanaged over recent years & didn't move with the times, lean times that is thanks to many factors outside of any GA operation control, mostly. In it's heady days Ausjet where booming as where others in the industry, it's a very different GA world these days!

Same come to my mind as well Stationair. I think the Dak was originally A30-91.

A65-91? Maybe then, I recall the aircraft being parked outside of Hangar 81 at Essendon in RAAF levy when I was an apprentice in the late 80s/maybe very early 90ís. Iíve probably even got some old photos of it at the time somewhere.

According to ADF Serials, VH-TMQ was A65-91. It was bought by Alistair Lamb in 2009 for AUD 180,000.

Can't give them away?

Is it my imagination? Or is it that PlanesSales listings sitting on the website for so long is an indication that you can't even give aeroplanes away at the moment?

aircraft ownership is onerous in Australia.
Parking, hangar, maintenance, insurance, fuel.
CAPEX low OPEX Higher than most realize.

GA is in deep trouble.
