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


This 140 was donated after the engine was found to have internal corrosion and needs an overhaul.  Even though the engine would have been capable of a ferry flight (only 220 SMOH), the #3 cylinder exhaust bolt studs pulled out of the cylinder and was deemed “non-repairable”.  We are selling it “As Is, Where Is” at KSET airport, St Charles, MO (short-term hangar rental is available to facilitate dismantling, if desired).   It has 4326 TT, dual Nav/Coms and a Stratus ESG ADS-B Transponder. The annual was documented with discrepancies in October 2021 (The list of discrepancies found during the Annual are listed on the logbook entry).  The overall white paint is poor, but the red and green stripes are more recent.  Interior is in good condition.  All ADs (including the Spar inspection) are complied with.
