Airframe

In the early ’80s, the Pitts factory made a limited number of S2S “kits” available for sale. They included just about everything needed to complete the airframe including the fuselage, wings, empennage, gear, wires, cowl, cabanes, motor mount, controls, push rods, bearings, bell cranks,etc. They were either a manufactured or supplied by the Pitts Factory. Most everything had factory serial numbers or a factory stamp. Both the fuselage and all three wing assemblies were completed and have factory serial numbers. When I bought it, it was stored in a heated hangar. Some major assembly had been completed. An IO-540 and a Hartzell aerobatic propeller was installed. Every nut, bolt, hose, screw, etc. is new. The fuel tanks, windscreen and canopy are from other aircraft. It was professionally finished and painted.

Engines / Mods / Prop

The engine has ~185hours TT since first major. It had 1940hours TT prior to MOH in this configuration. It is a lycoming IO-540: parallel valve cylinders, heavy crankshaft, impulse coupling Bendix 1200 series Magnetos, complete Christen inverted fuel and oil system including vac pad pickup. 8.5 to 1 pistons were installed at major. It performs flawlessly, oil changed every 10 to 15 hours. After approximately 80 hours TT, a spin on oil filter was installed. It puts out more than 260hp, probably around 300. The Hartzell aerobatic prop has ~185hours SMOH.

An IO-540 and a Hartzell aerobatic propeller was installed.Both the engine and prop were 0 SMOH (the engine was pickled.) I started the fabrication process by essentially taking everything apart and starting the build from scratch. Every nut, bolt, hose, screw, etc. is new. The fuel tanks and windscreen came out of Sean Tucker’s Pitts, the canopy was Jim Leroy’s. I completed the fabrication. The airframe was then sent to George Taylor at Old School Aviation for final fabrication, finish and painting. On 10/15/2011 an Experimental Airworthiness Certificate was issued. The wings were covered when I purchased the project. In 2014, all of the wing fabric was removed, the wings inspected and recovered professionally. There is presently 185hours TT on the aircraft.The engine has ~185hours TT since first major. It had 1940hours TT prior to MOH in this configuration.

The Hartzell aerobatic prop has ~185hours SMOH. Oil temp is aprox 180-190 even after sustained aerobatics.
