AIRCRAFT FOR SALE
is my Aircraft and Parts sales business. I broker airplanes, cars, parts, avionics and, occasionally, other interesting items. It is a way to stay active in the aviation game. I truly love it!
Take a look at what I have for sale and, if anything pushes your “I want it” button, let me know.
I expect you to do your own due diligence. I represent the items below as they’ve been represented to me. I always recommend the buyer have a pre-buy inspection accomplished as part of the buying process. It is important to accomplish a Title Search as part of the buying process.

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.

Read the story about this extraordinary airshow aircraft:
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.”
