I have had to sell the Cessna! With Aerosim Solutions work keeping me so busy and my own simulator not finished, I have decided to part with “Chucky”. My Worldflight Team mate and good friend Jason has taken over the project, quite a good thing because I will still get to see the project through and will probably still be making parts for it. I will retain the Cessna page here to update progress as it happens. Jason also owns a 737 simulator so he will have his hands full too, good luck with the build Jason!
In April 2015 I purchased the seats and interior trim from a well known Perth Cessna VH-CUK. Charlie, Uniform, Kilo or “Chucky” as it was affectionately known, used to be owned by local radio identity Paul Shepherd. “Captain Paul” used to fly over Perth in the mornings giving traffic reports and telling the crappiest jokes he could come up with! He used to take some celebrities up with him and one of these was the late actor James Doohan who played “Scotty” in Star Trek, Scotty has sat in my co-pilot seat! VH-CUK ended her flying days after another pilot encounted a tree whilst taxiing, the aircraft was subsequently written off.
