1967 Cessna 172H - N2585L


Interested parties can contact Mike Piccirilli at (314) 705-9250 or mike.piccirilli@wingsofhope.ngo


Here’s one of the least expensive 172’s on the market. It’s in annual until Jan 2022, just over 6,000 Total Time, mid-time Continental 6 cylinder engine, newer windows, and it does have a Stratus ADS-B transponder installed (just bring your I-Pad with Foreflight installed for GPS navigation, weather & traffic).

Our volunteers have been working on it for years, since it had been disassembled. They put it all back together, overhauled/refinished the engine mount and nose gear, installed a lower time engine (from another donated aircraft), installed all new interior plastic trim, new headliner and worked on the limited avionics.

The 2-tone blue paint has been polished but the exterior fiberglass and plastic parts need paint badly (are you handy with a spray gun?). The blue vinyl seats are in good shape and the carpet has been redyed.
