Cessna C185E C-FZEL

Introducing the FZEL - C185F, a remarkable aircraft manufactured by Cessna in 1971. With an Airframe Total Time Since New (TSN) of 3864.8, this aircraft has a fascinating history and is now available for discerning buyers seeking valuable airframe parts and components.

The FZEL - C185F encountered a fuel starvation mishap, colliding with trees during an approach to a lake, resulting in the float detachment and a water landing in 4ft of water. As a consequence, the aircraft sustained severe damage throughout.

However, amidst the damage, you'll discover an array of valuable airframe parts, making the FZEL - C185F an ideal source for replacement components and repair solutions. The cabin seats are among the salvageable items, presenting an opportunity for refurbishment and restoration.

Furthermore, this aircraft features the Atlee Dodge Firewall Battery Mod, enhancing its structural integrity and resilience. Notably, the landing gear boxes, forward door posts, and associated structure remain mostly undamaged, providing a solid foundation for your restoration efforts.

While the horizontal elevators require some repairs, a complete set of cowls is available, although they may be mismatched from the 180 lower cowls. To explore the diverse range of airframe parts and the potential for restoration, contact us today.
