Full restoration of a Aeronca Super Chief, 11-CC. It was stripped, has all new wood kit, instrument panel, 4 new wing spars. It was recovered with the Stitz process, painted and reassembled. This is an aircraft the owner will be proud to have. The paint scheme was designed by the owner (who is a volunteer firefighter) in the currently popular red, white and blue colors.
Newly-overhauled engine installation in the Cessna 150, N51103, used for training and rental in the flight school.
Glider wing repair for Schweizer 1-35c and a LET L-33.
Stanton Sport Aviation purchased a Cessna 172 which needed a new interior and other upgrades. This was successfully done and the airplane was resold to two young pilots. They are enjoying the use of the aircraft to complete their training and build hours toward a future as commercial pilots. This is the second Cessna 172 project purchased, upgraded and resold here.
The PA-18 Super Cub owned by the Minnesota Soaring Club received a new engine in 2000. This involved installing a 160-hp engine to replace the previous 150-hp engine. In addition to the 160-hp STC, we also installed a spin-on oil filter, an STC’d two-piece engine heat muff around the muffler for simpler inspection. A mandatory service bulletin requires replacing the type of wire used from the starter to the battery. While the aircraft was in the shop for the winter, three out of four of the tail control surfaces were recovered with new fabric. Needless to say, the glider pilots were anxious to fly behind this engine which provides more power for towing, and the pilots enjoy a tighter more responsive flying machine.
Newly-overhauled engine installation in the PA-12 Super Cruiser used for training and rental in the flight school. This included installation of the Tanis engine heating system so the airplane can be flown year round.
Early in 2000 the Minnesota Soaring Club ASK-21 sailplane required a comprehensive 3000-hour inspection to continue the Certificate of Airworthiness.
Stanton Sport Aviation purchased a slightly damaged Cessna 172, repaired the damage, cleaned it thoroughly, completed an annual inspection and resold the airplane to one of the local pilots who continues to have maintenance done here.
Other aircraft regularly maintained and based at Stanton include a Luscombe, Cessna 150s, C-182s, Cessna 172s, Super Cubs, Piper PA-12, Citabria and numerous sailplanes.
