Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Cessnas seem to be dirt cheap in the US, whats the score with bringing one to the UK? is it worthwile? would the CAA make it too damn restrictive?

    does anyone know?

    does anyone care
  2. dunno... Have you tried e-goat or more likely pprune - you might find a better answer there.
  3. never heard of e-goat... last time i was on p-prune they were nasty to me...still smarts to think about it!!
  4. Cessna never corrosion treated their aircraft and they can rot like buggery in our delightfull maritime climate.

    Better off with a French Reims Cessna, corrosion proofed at manufacture.

    We have one 40 years old not a spot of corrosion internally.

    Buyer beware, if it's cheap there's a reason.
