At considerable effort and expense, during the construction process we installed a special Glasair kit engineered to increase elevator authority (large horizontal stabilizer and elevator) at slow speeds thereby making landings safer. We also complied with a Glasair Service Bulletin by setting the wing back 3/4 of an inch that had the desired effect of moving the CG forward. We also increased the capacity of the reserve fuel tank behind the firewall from 8 gallons to 10 gallons which also moved the CG forward. Together, these modifications improved overall stability and formed the basis for the Super II model. The construction logs show that these modifications were made and the calculations show the positive effect on weight and balance.
Lift Reserve Indicator (red tubing) was accurately installed in the lead edge of the left wing and routed to the instrument panel since Glasair offers no stall warning system. Consult the internet for simple DYI system completion details.
Includes the Glasair Future Vision Instrument Panel and integrated center console are painted gloss white. Removable aluminum panels make instrument, radio, breaker and switch installation easy. The heater and ventilation systems are installed. The rugged military stick grips with boots and hat switches for microphone and elevator controls are installed. The navigation, landing light and Whelen strobe systems are wired and installed. The hydraulic landing gear system with all switches and lights is wired and installed.

All exterior parts were individually sanded, primed, sealed and painted with PPGs finest products. They polished with 3M professional grade products. The result is a very tough, fuel, acid, sun, corrosion, scratch resistant and durable finish. Control surfaces have been balanced to prevent flutter. Landing gear doors are adjusted.
Two sets of wingtips are included. They are painted, plumbed and wired for lighting. The regular short wing tips (wing span about 23 feet) are for normal and aerobatic flying and result in a max gross weight of 2,000 lbs. The extended wing tips (wing span about 27 feet) are for long range flying. They hold 11 gallons of fuel increasing range to 1,600+ miles, improving cruise speed to about 235 mpg, reducing landing stall speed to 50 mph with slotted flaps, and raising the max gross weight to 2,200 lbs (more useful load). Impressive performance difference, wing-tip change with a screw-driver in about an hour.
The radio related infrastructure is included: avionics solenoids, most circuit breakers, the split master switch, the canopy-lock keyed ignition switch, and the Glasair electrical wiring kit. The Glasair future vision instrument panel system is completed and painted. The Glasair antennas kits (nav/com) are installed inside the airframe.
The Glasair and S-TEC autopilot infrastructure (pitch and roll servo kits) were installed. The linkage was connected, wiring was installed and inter-related kits were fully integrated during airframe construction. There are used STEC System 40, 50 and 60 panel control units in great condition with warranties selling at 10% of new part prices online. Or, you can defer autopilot installation until later.

All reasonable offers will be considered. With some exceptions, we do not provide pictures of our Glasair IIS-RG aircraft (we want you to see this gorgeous aircraft) or answer questions already answered in this listing. Private buyers, accompanied by their 'independent' pre-approved inspectors (those having no financial interest in the transaction now or at any time in the future) are encouraged to schedule inspection appointments. The buyer must be financially pre-qualified and a licensed pilot prior to inspection and must take delivery F.O.B. at our facility soon after funds clear.
Price and terms are negotiable in person only! We do require the buyer to obtain and pay for a FRESH ANNUAL INSPECTION to be performed by a Airframe and Power Plant specialist at a reputable FAA licensed repair facility prior to test flying, no exceptions, to protect all builders (seller and buyer) against liability claims and to assure your safety and confidence in flying this exceptional Glasair IIS-RG. The price has already been reduced to offset the cost of this requirement.
