For sale: Mudry CAP 232 S/N11 low hours €145,000

Mudry CAP 232 S/N11 low hours €145,000

This beautiful CAP 232 after just nine hours was completely overhauled in 2001with many improvements to produce probably the best 232 ever built. The French engineer / unlimited level pilot had the overhaul carried out so the aircraft was the lightest and most competitive aircraft possible.

It was fitted with many certified modifications in preparation for the free program and international aerobatics championships with the French National Team. The emphasis was on a high power to weight ratio and so along with the extensive weight saving measures the engine was modified to produce 340 HP – a big increase on the standard. In addition there were modifications to the engine to enable resilience to gyroscopic figures. There is an extra front crankshaft bearing, an expensive Lycoming modification and many other improvements to ensure a well-balanced and powerful engine.
