No, unfortunately I'm not really in a position to get the most out of either of these bird dogs. Hoping to find a good home for mine. Bird dog owners seem to break out into either warbird types or utility types. Mine is definitely of the utility persuasion. It would make a great backcountry or float STOL performer for someone, or possibly a glider-tow or survey ship. It's eligible on the Bushwheels STC if someone wanted to go that route for a serious backcountry set up. The visibility is stunning, and the head room and shoulder room are unbeatable for a larger pilot.
Appreciate any help by the BCP community in spreading the word. It needs someone else who will use and enjoy it.

Thanks,

-DP

Re: FS: Rare Pponk Bird Dog. Accepting Offers.

I've always loved these things! I guess this solves the debate I saw on here some time ago about wether or not you can ponk a dog. :lol: sounds like a good name for a band. :P
You said accepting offers.. Don't suppose you need a left nut... :P

Yes, you can ponk a dog. Mine was the first one ever done. There's been a few more since. The sister ship to mine is working commercially in Homer, Alaska with the same engine and prop.

[Edit] When I originally posted this listing, I hadn't had a chance to determine valuation. This thread originally stated "Accepting Offers". Since then, I have established an asking price through research and locating owners of somewhat comparable aircraft. The current asking price is $59,900 on wheels. Floats and rigging may be negotiated separately from the former owner.
Thanks,
