On the wing or on the ground, you cant beat Silvaire, the highlight of our Vintage Airplane Ad of the Week!

Comment on Facebook

I loved mine. wish I hadn't sold it.

I had an 8A, I loved that plane. I learned more about flying and what an airplane could or couldn’t do.

First airplane I solo ed in

We love our Silvaire

Always loved the styling, but was underpowered like most of the light planes of that period. she had a tendency to ground loop easily, you really had to stay on top of it (happy feet). Close buddy bought a well cared for used one in 1958 for $1800.00 to take lessons in. The aluminum polished out like a jewel. Next to the Champ I was flying, it was like a BMW.

My dad had one just like that. He used to give me rides, quite often!

Dad had a (90 hp engine ) T8F Observer . Tandem seating . There was a lot of plexiglass around the back seat and overhead . . Luscombe was trying to get the Government contract for an observer aircraft for the ,military . Dont know how many were built . Cessna got the contract for the O1 birddog .

I'm 6'5" tall and couldn't fit my legs into one of these.

Loved N2354K, a ‘47 8a/c. Wish I would have kept it, but was not able to fly it, so passed it on.

notice the price. that is new. I flew one in 49 when I was looking to buy. ended up with a AERONCA CHAMP. flew it all; over IOWA and south MINN/ it was a real fun airplane too.

By today's prices, that was a steal since $2500 in 1947 has the same purchasing power as around $33,000 today. Heck of a good deal that was.

Those were the days.. I so love Aviation and it's transformations.

The advert sounds great…….I’m thinking of putting a down payment on one……..

The mighty Cub in the background

GREAT PRICE!!

I'll take 4 please.

Counting for inflation, today this would be around $37,000.00. Not a bad deal in 1947. My dad flew one when I was about 13 (1954).

Sent my money off, haven’t heard back yet!

Our first and second airplane.

Around $33k in todays money, how times have changed.

Fast. Better be a good tailwheel pilot.

Flew a Luscombe from the Santa Monica Flying Club late 50's!!

Wish I could buy one now at that price.

What a deal

Man look at the price lol!

I remember how you had your plane torn down. You need to fly into Portland and we’ll pick you up for lunch or supper sometime?

It’s great to have the whole family involved in the project. Here are pictures of our son while we were recovering our Tripacer and also pictures of him and his son about 30 years later.

Another incredible restoration Trevor-it is a massive project! So special to be able to have the family involved.

Good for you keep up the great work👍

I never believed it works this way, I was very doubtful about Bitcoin and all other online trading, I decided to risk $1,690 with Mrs Rebecca Wayne , after I saw testimonies of people on how good she is but I was very skeptical but she prove me wrong with my first trade and I'm so happy today, so I'm recommending her to everyone of you to invest with her and testify like me.

This weeks Project of the Week belongs to Chuck Doyle of Minnesota. Chuck purchased this 1931 Stinson Jr. in 2016 from a private collector in the Minneapolis area. It was flown for two summers before being disassembled for restoration in 2017. Chuck hasn't worked on the Stinson for two years now but hopes to get back on it and get it flying for the 2023 Minnesota flying season. ... See MoreSee Less

Beautiful work but I'm surprised that Chuck Doyle uses those colors 😉

So very cool. Hope to meet you at the MAHOF banquet. We’ll be at the Randy table.

WooHoo!! Absolutely gorgeous work!

Susan, I think you could tackle this!! Remember, I have the tool box.

Still a lot to do there maybe 24/25 seasons

Beautiful!
