5695q: FWIW, if the registration expires and you don't renew the number goes in a dead file for a couple years so if someone wants to re-register they can. The aircraft can be registered with a new N number after restoring if the old number has been tr issued to someone else.
b rt: Ever attempted to re-cover a DH-82 Tiger Moth?
Lance Morrow: Thank you very much for such a quick reply! I looked up the N-number on the FAA.gov site and the registration expires next year,I'll make sure I talk to the owner before then. Thank you for the help! It would take several years but I'd love the chance to fly a plane I rebuilt,no matter the cost.
j3cubheavy: At this time it will cost more for the materials and parts than you can buy a flying one for on Barnstormers. So if you would really like to restore one I wouldn't offer more than a few hundred. Now you have to be careful the old rules an aircraft registration did not expire. A few years ago they sent out reregistration forms and the registration now expires in 5 years. If the owner at that time did not do the reregistration it will never be legal to fly that airplane ever.
Lance Morrow: Your airplane is great looking bird too! Great work!
Lance Morrow: I've been watching a Taylorcraft BC-12D waste away at a local grass strip. I believe that it will require a full restoration and I'd really like to buy it as a project.It has a C-85 engine that will need a complete overhaul or a new engine all together.The tires are dry rotted and flat and there are holes in the covering.It's been sitting in the humidity of Louisiana and I'm sure the wood spars are bad. If I approach the owner looking to buy it,what do you suppose a fair price would be?
CJ Faulkner: Good work! Thank you for posting this video.
Ed Moore: very nice!!!!
ripmax333: fantastic job! another taylor craft in the air!
