AERONCA SEDAN          15AC-134          N1118H

 

Aeronca Sedan N1118H Project is for sale, as is, and is located in Shelton, WA. This Sedan was expertly modified, recovered and restored most recently in July 1997. Seaplane doors of clear lexan which lift to open using gas cylinders were installed at that time. In July 1992, the original Continental engine was replaced with an overhauled Lycoming IO360 converted to a Lycoming O360-A1A, and a constant speed propellor was installed. The wings are metal, and metal fuel tanks were installed in 1992. The log books are complete and excellent. All modifications have been done with all necessary documentation, STCs and approvals. The covering (1997) is Polyfiber covering and it was applied according to manufacturer and FAA approved methods. The owner of this aircraft owned an aircraft supply and avionics shop, and all the parts and hardware installed were of high quality and aircraft certified.

The aircraft was water-looped in September 2007, resulting in damage to the floats, float supports, and the right wing tip. Damage is documented in the following pictures.
