That's over a MILLION Rubles (yeah, I play with my iPhone too much).

So, um... just as an aside, what hassles are involved in importing a plane back into the States, anyway.

Not sure if the USA still requires a Certificate of Export, but you will need a current Canadian 100 hour or annual inspection. When you get the aircraft to the USA you will need to apply for an Airworthiness Certificate and US registration. (N numbers). GUP Pretty simple, ay?

If the Cub was previously registered in the US, or left the US with a Export C of A, all you need to do is re-register it with FAA AC Registry. You will need an Annual type inspection within 30 days from the date on the Application. Call a FAA DAR who will come out and conform the J3 to its Type Design and issue the AW Certificate. Any changes that were accomplished since it left Piper must have been accomplished with FAA Approved Data.

Now, importing an aircraft from Turkey is another matter. GUP

Thanks... I'm still in learn mode. Got some promised purchases to make (including a 10th anniversary ring I promised 10 years ago. She can't remember what I tell her over breakfast, but this she remembered... go figure). But as soon as I get a green light, I want to be ready so that I'm all the way across before the light changes again. ;-)

Merlinspop, I think the Canadian equivalent of the FAA (forget the name, sorry) are more strict and detail-oriented than the FAA. This is just my opinion here, but I often found Canadian aircraft to be in better shape than US aircraft when in the marketplace. Just stay away from their float planes...they love to fly floats up there.

If what you say is true why would their float planes be any different? GUP

Another thing to check is that it has not been in "Owner Maintaince".
