Skycatcher For Sale

Postby snaproll » Sun Jul 05, 2015 2:50 pm

Placing my father's Skycatcher C162 on the market if anyone is interested. N162YE has under 100 hours TTAF and Engine, recently added second MFD and Autopilot, stored in hangar at RIR since new, no damage, condition inspection through 1 September, and all bulletins complied with. My father, Ray Stits, passed away 8 June of natural causes, and had flown Young Eagles in the Skycatcher two weeks prior. Asking $70K or best offer for the C162. Will post a picture when available. VR.. Don Stits I can be reached at dstits@msn.com

Read about your dad's passing, condolences. He really helped a lot of airplane owners with his products.

A lot of EAAers (including me) would love to be able to own Ray's personal airplane. As the designer of something like 15 different aircraft, as well as having founded EAA Chapter #1, he was legendary, and inspirational. I consider myself honored to have known him. Had I not just signed a deal to buy another SportStar, I would probably have snapped this up!

Paul,
Ray had a memory like an elephant.. I talked to him about you and he not only remembered you, but also described you and your impressive background. Thanks for the kind words.. VR... Don

Don, that's great news. Even better was learning that the new owner is going to continue Ray's tradition of giving kids Young Eagles flights in it. A fitting tribute to his memory.

Thanks Paul. Ray had flown over 2,000 Young Eagles between his C182 and later the C162. He even changed the N number to 162YE (Young Eagles). The new owner is an avid Young Eagles supporter so 162YE will continue supporting this effort. The tradition will continue... VR.. Don
