This 1967 Cessna 150 Is a Modified, Tail-Dragging ‘AircraftForSale’ Top Pick

Many 150s have been converted to tailwheel landing gear, but they remain rare sights.

Each day, the team at Aircraft For Sale picks an airplane that catches our attention because it is unique, represents a good deal, or has other interesting qualities. You can read Aircraft For Sale: Today’s Top Pick at FLYINGMag.com daily.

Today’s Top Pick is a 1967 Cessna 150G.

There are a lot of Cessna 150s and 152s flying today. The sturdy two-seat trainers have been taking students through flight training and check rides for more than 60 years. In that time they have earned a reputation as reliable, economical, no-nonsense aircraft that are suited to several missions beyond training, such as traveling, commuting, and short-field operations.

The airplane for sale here is not your everyday 150, having been modified with a number of upgrades aimed at making it a better bush machine. Changes include taildragger landing gear, wing modifications, and a 150 hp engine like those found in the larger Cessna 172. The engine swap boosts its horsepower by 50 percent compared with a standard 150.

This 1967 150 has 2,066 hours on the airframe and 17 hours on its Lycoming 150 hp O-320-E2D engine. The panel features a Narco Mk-12 Nav/Com, Sport 200 two-place intercom, and Genave Beta 5000 transponder.

Additional equipment includes the Texas Taildragger STC, 150 hp STC, gross weight increase STC, STOL-Craft leading edge and wing tip kit, flap and aileron gap seals, and Patroller doors.     

Pilots looking for a compact STOL airplane, and especially those who like the Cessna 150 but wish it was a taildragger, should consider this modified 1967 model, which is available for $103,900 on AircraftForSale.

You can arrange financing of the aircraft through FLYING Finance. For more information, email [email protected].
