1949 MEYERS 145

PRICE LOWERED to $64,900.00

Here’s your chance to own a piece of Aviation History!

N-34363

 N34363 is a Beautiful 1949 Meyers 145, Serial number 206, Total time 3190 Hours, Time Since Major Overhaul 520 hours. 

There were only 22 of these built by Meyers Aircraft in Tecumseh, Michigan, Each airplane was hand built. To the best of my knowledge there are only about eleven left on the FAA registry and last I heard only 5 flying. This 145, I believe, is the last one still “polished” The airplane was way ahead of its time and was the two place version for the Meyers 200 (later Rockwell 200) airplane to come. It caries 48 gallons of fuel with a very reliable Continental O-300 Engine burning 8.5 Gallons an hour. It is a very dossal Tail Wheel aircraft with a retractable gear.  IFR equipped!

  • Maximum speed: 166 mph
  • Cruise speed: 145 mph @ 8.5 GPH!
  • Range: 600 miles with max fuel.
  • Service ceiling: 18,000 ft
  • Rate of climb: 960 ft/min

Meyers Aircraft is one of the very few manufactures to NEVER HAVE AN AD ISSUED ON THEIR AIRCRAFT.

Beautiful flying aircraft

They do not come available for sale very often!.

IFR Panel with all instruments overhauled in the past few years

Leather Interior

Last Engine Overhaul was 12/1999, It has an freshly updated Garmin 430 With WAAS.

All newly overhauled Gyros and instruments, It also has an intercom and a new Stratus USG ADS-B Transponder installed last year.

Annual is due August 2020.  N-34363 has been flown weekly the past couple of years.  I’d have to dig thru the logs for the exact number of hours, but the owner says he flew it in excess of 30 hours over the past 12 months.  It is no hangar queen!  Quite a number of flights were for the EAA Young Eagles program.  The airplane is hangared at P19 (Chandler, AZ).  

Newly installed Appareo Stratus ADS-B Transponder

Stearman Flying Wire February 2020 issue

SRA president, Mike Rutledge, flew N-29XF for some three hours.  Here’s what he had to say:

“One of Stellar Airpark’s (P19) more interesting Stearman residents is Larry Dustman’s R-1340 equipped “Ghost Ship.” The Ghost Ship was built by John Pike and his Crew at Big Sky Stearman using model 75 bones as a basis to fabricate the likeness of a 1930s Curtis F11C-2 “Goshawk” fighter.  I have a well-known affinity for wanting to fly one-off planes.  I suppose the Schiffer’s “Beast” Duster was the catalyst.  Who doesn’t want to fly a 600 HOP Stearman?  After a brief discussion with Larry and a call to my insurance agent, Larry gave me the keys to the Ghost Ship along with a ground checkout from local Stearman elder “Captain” Billy Walker.  This too probably warrants its own future article, but I won’t keep you in suspense, flying the Ghost ship isn’t for everyone.  It handles like about 70% golden age fighter with enough common Stearman characteristics to claim the heritage.  It’s fast and immediately puts a smile on your face when you push the throttle forward as you look through the gun ring.  Heck, I was smiling just taxiing.  I’ll chalk those 3 hours in the Ghost Ship as the highlight of my trip to Arizona.”

  1. Good afternoon Billy it was a pleasure talking to you last evening I look forward to Stearman training and my tailwheel endorsement I tentatively plugged in January 15th through the 22nd I would get into Phoenix in the afternoon of the 15th get settled and be ready to fly on the 16th… take a look at your schedule see if that would work and get back to me thank you Craig Lucas

  2. I found your. Blog and email information by accident and maybe you can help me. I am looking for an airplane Fuselage for a friend In Austin Texas who wants to make it into a mini rental home..for a development he has. Can be a salvage cabin without a tail unit, but would prefer it has a cockpit. Rear portion will be entrance with Sliding Door added. Ideal interior 8’ high 8 ‘ wide, maybe 30’ long, these are all approximate. Maybe DC-3, C46 ,Beech 18, PV1,Open to ? what ever we can haul back.

      However, you live close to Davis-Monthan AFB repository for the second largest Air Force in the world! Next door is Pima Air & Space Museum. Both, are worth checking into.
