Grumman AA-1B

Grumman AA-1B


+++ SOLD +++


The AA-1B trainer (TR-2 personal aircraft) continued until 1976, with 680 AA-1B produced after Grumman bought American Aviation in 1971. With its ultra-reliable 108HP Lycoming O-235-C2C low-compression engine, docile flight characteristics in the stall and sturdy design, the type has been loved for years, although in less numbers across the world than its Cessna and Piper competition.


This aircraft was one of the first new AA1B's produced. Well maintained and original, it includes a fresh annual, new exhaust, exhaust clamps and carburettor shroud, a new digital tacho, FS450 computer, LED landing lights and extras for the sale.
