Exclamation Cessna SIDS

So here are the choices:

C150L: Engine on condition: Mid range prop hours: Built in 1972
Or
C150A Aerobat
Reims 150AOnly 336 Reims-built 150A aircraft were made, of which only 141 featured the Rolls-Royce Continental O-240-A engine!
This one is offered for sale with a low time engine that was overhauled in 2016, and fresh hours to run on the propeller. Perfect as a powerful aerobatic trainer, or private tourer with the 130HP Rolls-Royce providing confidence during every phase of flight.
Aircraft / kit manufacturer: Reims 150A
Model: FRA1509L
Year: 1971
Engine type: O-240A Rolls Royce 130hp
Engine Hours: 900TR
Total airframe time: TT 9460 (Factory corrosion proofed)
Engine History (if applicable): O/Haul 1/2/2016
Accident history / details: Nil
Propeller type: McCauley 2-blade, fixed pitch
SIDS: Compliant & all schedules available
Propeller hours: 1830TR
Storage history: Hangered for past 7 years
Avionics list:
Cruise speed: 95kts
BEW: 551kg
MTOW: 748kg
Fuel Capacity / no. of tanks: 132ltrs / 2 tanks
Now the major concern is that of Cessna SIDS and spare parts.

Which aircraft would you pick and would you be very concerned about CASA SIDS?

Well you’d have to complete all the details on the first one as well and indicate prices before any meaningful comparison can be made.

The other question is of course, what is the usage going to be, is it strictly private or is it to be put on line??

Probably neither. Has to be an Aerobat for me. I have heard that the IO-240 is not supported with spares so throw the Reims away in 900 hours. There are other options around at the moment.

NORVIC engineering in the U.K. offer an overhaul for the O-240 on their website. If no one in Oz can do it you’d have shipping costs, but hopefully not have to throw the aircraft away.

Several 172's here in NZ for sale; if I had the dollars I'd have this https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/a...1?bof=IAw6VgkW
