SOCATA ST 10 Diplomate

Hello flyers!
Looking for any SOCATA ST 10 Diplomate owner, anywhere in Europe.
My F-BTIA will resume flying in 2 weeks and feels a bit alone.
Would like to connect with other owners...and find any ST 10 parts or wreck around so as to save some more flying years for these forgotten machines.
Any lead appreciated!
May I dare to wish happy flying for next year to the crowd? That could be one step too far, maybe?
Be sure to fly safe anyway!
Pierre

Socata ST-10 Diplomate

Hello all,
My first post on the forum where I am surprised to find such an interest for this rare aircraft.
I have bought the ST-10 F-BTIA 5 months ago and like phil_socata I would be happy to establish contact with other owners/pilots. Setting up a website as it exists for many other aircraft types would be ideal however just building a directory or a whatsapp group may be a starting point...
Any ST-10's pilots interested?
Laurent

Salut Mr/Mme EP soixante-dixhuit Soyez les bienvenus!
Apart from the above replies, which might still hold value, and then perhaps they might not,
I seem to remember one being flown by a chap at euroga.org, he might even be the forum owner/operator/sole moderator.
But it is not impossible that I am mixing things up, it has been quite some years simce I came there, he might as well be flying an ST20.

EuroGA is run by a guy who flies a TB-20 out of Shoreham so far as I'm aware.

Yes, flying out of Shoreham sure enough. It seems I mixed up the aircraft types, though, apologies.

G-AZIB ST10 has been stored at Blackpool for around 15 years. The owner, who operated Blackpool Air Centre, no longer flies. His contact details are on G-INFO: https://www.caa.co.uk/aircraft-regis...search-g-info/
The beautiful Cessna 185 in this photo is also stored - It would be great to see these two flying again!

Hello Laurent,
Did you find other ST10 owners in Europe? How is your adventure with your ST 10 Diplomat? Is there a forum or whatsapp group for ST 10 owners?
Best regards.

[Drift]If memory serves, the C185 was used to tow a banner in support of Mrs T at the Tory conference in Blackpool circa 1982 while such aerial advertising was banned. Brian Bateson subsequently had a little court appearance and a fine ...! He and others were trying to get the ban overturned and I think Air Touring Services (connection with G-AZIB!) carried out some demos with a Rallye at Biggin in probably 1983, I certainly recall seeing it done there around then. Certainly would be nice to see both aircraft back in the air.

Hello Yann,
I have been only in touch with one guy who is restoring his Diplomate, in addition to the ancient test pilot of Socata who didn't support my project to gather ST-10 owners... That's a pity because I think he do have many contacts :-(
I am really happy to fly this aircraft. I have spent a lot of time to find an avionics workshop willing to quote an upgrade to modern Garmin GI275's and GT650 but most of them were afraid by the paper work to do with EASA. Lambert Aircraft in Kortrijk, Belgium has taken the job and I am impatient to have the aircraft back within one month...
Kind regards,
Laurent
