Detailed Description

This 2004 C172SP is a very well equipped, IFR rated plane, housing a freshly overhauled prop, and a fresh 500-hour engine (see remarks below). As a member of a flight school fleet, N21180 has been very well maintained.  New 172 S models are $700k and you cant get one until 2027.  This is a great flying relatively low time ready to go aircraft with mountains of Avionics, and plenty of engine time!

Complete logbooks available upon request.

1. Please have your financing ready - we are unable to hold an airplane or take a deposit "subject to financing."  
2. Please have an inspector scheduled, we require buyers to inspect the airplane by a FAA licensed mechanic before purchase. 
 3. Come see the airplane and read the logbooks, your inspector is welcome to use our hangar after a sales contract has been agreed to and signed by Buyer and Seller, and a refundable deposit placed with an agreed escrow service.  
4. We can send copies of specific events out of the log books, and we can scan the log books, as time permits. 
 5. The Sales agreement includes a Hold Harmless agreement - it is an AS-IS, where-is sale with all faults, subject to your pre-buy inspection.  
6. The agreement covers common-sense items, like We only represent the Seller and do not make any warranties as to anything. The Seller warrants clear title and nothing else. 
7. If you are happy with the agreement, and place your refundable $ 5,000 deposit with an agreed escrow (it's refundable based upon your acceptance of your inspection), then we test fly it with you, and go to the pre-buy inspection step.  
8. Price Discussions: The Seller has put thought into the price so that the airplane is attractive and competitive to similar offerings, and presents a compelling offering to Buyers.  
9. You can email an offer at any time, but generally, the posted price, for the above reasons, short of an extraordinary circumstance, is the price.  We love buyers to compare, compare, compare. 
 10. On the pre-buy, your inspector must return the airplane to us the way we gave it to the inspector. The seller is not obligated to fix "whatever your mechanic finds". You can walk away at any time. If there's a genuine issue that the seller agrees with, it can certainly be discussed. 
 11. After the inspection, if the inspection is satisfactory to you, you proceed to close and pay for the airplane.  
12. Like buying a new car, proof of acceptable insurance is required prior to closing.  
13. The escrow process is like buying a house- the escrow will check the title status at the FAA, collect the money, file the title transfer documents at the FAA, and pay the Seller

Escrow is presently setup.

While idling for standard maintenance check, prop wash from another airplane on taxi way blew the top cowl into the prop. Engine was sent to Aircraft Engine Specialists, who built the engine, for prop strike and nearly rebuilt. Engine only has ~500 hours, but most components were overhauled including a fresh set of Nickel cylinders (see log entry in pictures). Prop is newly overhauled and balanced by Texas Aircraft Propellers. Top cowl and nose cap replaced and painted.
