Anyone want a new Sedan?

Detailed Description

Airframe:
Total Time Air Frame: New
Fuselage will be fabric covered and the landing gear will also be of original tube design. Bungee cords for shock absorption and a steerable tail wheel: standard. The fuselage will have two seaplane type doors, unlike the original Sedan (S15AC). Steel tube formers and aluminum stringers replace the original wood. Metal wings will still grace the plane and new double-puck disc brakes with 8.50 x 6.00 tires complete the standard arrangement.

Engine Specifications:
Lycoming O-360-A1A (180HP) (TBO 2000 Hrs), Total Time Since New: 0
(Sedan originally equipped with 6 cylinder, Continental C-145 or O-300,145 HP engine)

Prop:
80" Constant Speed Hartzell Prop HC-C2YR-1BF/F8477-4, C-1576 Damper and 835-23P polished
spinner, Total Time Since New: 0
The 80" constant speed prop STC (separate from the 180 HP STC) that we hold uses a damper on the pro-peller hub just behind the spinner backing plate. This damper ELIMINATES the RPM restriction that is pre-sent on the original 76" constant speed prop that is still part of the original 180 HP STC. You'll have 0-2,700 RPM available to use at any setting you wish.

That might be worth getting excited about! Do Sedans have more legroom than Champs? I sit my Citabria like a Toad on a Lilly pad.

Sedan's have MUCH more legroom than Champs. That is a good part of why I bought my Sedan back in 88. I'm 6'6" with a good part of that dimension taken up by leg. The Sedan was the only plane I could afford that I fit in. Mine has the stock jackscrew adjustable pilot seat. I believe the new Sedans will have the Cessna type seat rails and could potentially have even more adjustment for tall guys than the old ones.

Did this enterprise fizzle? The web link doesn't work.

Larry, Burl is still in business and updated his website. The old URL was changed to this
http://www.burlac.com/aero_sedan.html
and unfortunately Burl's web developers should have provided a redirection to the new page.

You need to "up-trade" that Citabria to a Sedan :lol:

I actually have the Citabria on Trade-a-Plane now so I'm looking for something a little different.

I wonder if he has actually built any of these Sedans yet?

An after thought if you are really looking for a Sedan, Mike Hoag in Three Rivers, Michigan is one of the most knowledgeable people around. I heard he might have one or two he just finished rebuilding. I don't have his contact information at hand, but I'd bet Joe A has it burried in one of his little black books. Mike's work is good as new if you have every a chance to look at one of his projects at Middletown.

Burl has built at least one new Sedan I believe.

Personally I would contact Mike Hoag first as I am not sure Burl has anymore available right now.
